Captain Beefheart

Album of the Week - 12-3-22

Afternoon folks!

There's a pile of blues for you guys this week. Chicago guitarist Son Seals has a live album, harmonica player Big Walter Horton has a studio album, there's an Otis Redding album in glorious original mono and New Orleans singer Johnny Adams weighs in with an album of Percy Mayfield tunes. Guitarist David Lindley has an album of cool blues-rock and reggae inflected tunes, Captain Beefheart's album delivers the weirdness and we finish up with Buffalo Springfield's (Neil Young, Steven Stills and Richie Furay) debut album (also in glorious mono).

I will be adding additional cuts to the Big Walter Horton album and Otis Redding's album on Saturday night sometime.

Have a great weekend and enjoy!

Album of the Week - 4-9-22

Afternoon folks!

I've got a bunch of albums for you this week. Blues albums from Buddy Guy, Big Mama Thornton and Albert Collins and some blues-rock from Blues Image, Captain Beefheart and a British band, Vinegar Joe.

I will have to upload the last track of Buddy Guy's album Saturday night, since Youtube thinks I should wait 24 hours before uploading it.
