Album of the Week - 6-11-22

Afternoon folks!

More great stuff! Muddy Waters. Sonny Boy Williamson with Jimmy Page - recorded in 1965 when Page was mostly working as a studio sideman, there are only hints of his later style, but Sonny Boy is great of course. Jimmy Reed and Charlie Musselwhite for a little more harmonica goodness. There's John Mayall's transition album to a more jazz-infused style, a mid-70's Savoy Brown album and some bluegrass with the Doug Dillard Band and fiddler Byron Berline.

Enjoy!

Here 'tis:

Muddy Waters - Rolling Stone

Sonny Boy Williamson, Jimmy Page And Brian Auger

Jimmy Reed - Rockin' With Reed

Charles Musselwhite - Leave The Blues To Us

John Mayall - The Turning Point

Savoy Brown - Boogie Brothers

The Doug Dillard Band with Byron Berline - Jackrabbit!

especially for adding more Muddy Waters to my collection. It fits the moment perfectly, as the winds howl and the rain muddies every step.

Hey Joe, GREAT stuff man! Very interesting Page work, neat to hear some insights into his development. Mayall's Turning Point was actually hugely popular in the LA area. All over the radio. That vocalise in Room to Move is stellar, it has always blown my mind.

Thanks for the great sounds!
