JJ Cale

Album of the Week 12-23-23

Afternoon folks!

We've got some Chicago blues this week from Son Seals, followed by some r&b from Robert Ward & The Ohio Untouchables (the Untouchables later became the Ohio Players), after that we've got an album from the Neville Brothers. In the blues-rock vein, there's albums from JJ Cale and The Climax Blues Band. Then for a bit of diversity we've got a country album from Leon Russell, some art rock from Be Bop Deluxe and we finish up with some acoustic folk-blues from The Holy Modal Rounders.

Enjoy and have a great weekend/holiday!

Album of the Week 12-2-23

Afternoon folks!

This week we've got a mess of good stuff. We've got a James Cotton album to lead off, followed by a compilation of old Falcons records - a really great r&b/doo-wop group that had some enormous talents pass through it over the years. Following that there's a movie soundtrack album with Mike Bloomfield, Nick Gravenites, Paul Butterfield and Maria Muldaur on it. I think that it's kind of an overlooked album given the talent on it. After that there's a mid-70's John Hammond album with a bunch of good stuff on it followed by Johnny Winter backed up by the Muddy Waters band including James Cotton and Muddy Waters who sings on the last cut. We've got a JJ Cale (kinda greatest hits) compilation and to finish up, for a little diversity there's a Joe Ely album, probably his best one.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
