Album of the Week

Album of the Week - 11-26-22

Afternoon folks!

This week (surprise) there's more great stuff to listen to. There's a live Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown album, a collection of Leroy Carr recordings and a Neville Brothers live album. I found a long-lost album with Charlie Musselwhite, Harvey Mandel and Barry Goldberg lurking in my basement, cleaned it up and it sounds pretty decent now, perhaps a little of its period, but cool nonetheless. There's a collection of Gram Parsons and Flying Burrito Brothers recordings and an EP of Gram Parsons and the Fallen Angels a Rosanne Cash album and another moldy oldie album from the basement by the Five Man Electrical Band - I think it's their debut album. Finally, there's a part of a Dr. Feelgood live album that I will upload the remaining tunes from on Sunday sometime.

Enjoy the splendiferous bounty of my basement! Smile

There's also an interesting album from Geoff and Maria Muldaur, a Steeleye Span album and a David Bromberg album to boot.

Enjoy!

The diversity this week is provided by Goose Creek Symphony, Ry Cooder and Steeleye Span.

Album of the Week - 8-27-22

Afternoon folks!

Well, this week my trip down south derailed my schedule of uploading videos to Youtube, so the pickings are good, but sparse this week.

There's the 1967 album by the Savoy Brown Blues Band, their first. Also there's a compilation double album "Gabe's Dirty Blues" which has some really great tunes on it worth checking out.

Enjoy!
