Bo Diddley

Album of the Week 8-19-23

Afternoon folks!

It's a smaller haul this week because I missed uploading a couple of days, but maybe we'll make it up with quality.

Starting off, there's Taj Mahal's eponymous album with an epic version of "Statesboro Blues" on it. After that there's a 1960 Bo Diddley comp album followed by Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown and Roy Clark collaborating on a fun album. Following that we switch to blues-rock with a Ram Jam album with their big hit on it (Black Betty), then there's an album by Dave Alvin and Fred Wesley (a long-time member of the JB's) lays some serious funk on us. We finish off with some old-timey music by the Red Clay Ramblers.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the music!
