Album of the Week - 3-4-23

Afternoon folks!

Well, there's a bunch of good stuff this week. Surprise! Blues harmonica player Junior Parker leads off, followed by Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal album that I posted last week was a double album package and I got around to posting the second album "De Old Folks At Home" this week, it's acoustic guitar and banjo blues for the most part. If you listened to the first album (Giant Step) last week, you can click through the first 9 tunes to get to the new album.

After that there's a bunch of 50's Chicago blues from John Brim and Little Hudson who recorded back then for the JOB label - I'll be loading some more cuts from this album later Saturday evening. Following that is a mid-70's Roy Buchanan album, a David Lindley album, a kind of proggish/avant garde album from Adrian Belew, a decidedly proggy Return To Forever album and we finish up with a late 60's album by Fat Mattress - a kind of folk-rock band formed by the Jimi Hendrix Experience's bass player Noel Redding.


Album of the Week - 1-7-23

Afternoon folks!

Well, there's some blues for you this week. There's a double album compilation of Memphis Slim followed by a T-Bone Walker album and the first half (roughly) of a B.B. King compilation of earlier hits. I'll post the other half later in the same playlist, maybe next week sometime. Then we've got slide guitarist David Lindley and rounding out the selection there's former Monkee Michael Nesmith's second album with the First National Band.


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!
