Afternoon folks!

This week I have a whole bunch of blues for you guys. Albums by Hubert Sumlin with James Cotton, Freddie King, also compilation albums featuring Earl Hooker and Magic Sam, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Eric Clapton with Powerhouse and The Lovin' Spoonful among others. There's an album by Taste, which was Rory Gallagher's band early on in his career and rounding out the week, there's a non-blues album by Peter Rowan with some of his best tunes on it.

Album of the Week - 3-12-22

Afternoon folks!

I've got four playlists for you this week from Magic Slim, Memphis Slim, Roomful of Blues and Brownsville Station.

The Memphis Slim album is missing a track which a rights organization has blocked and the Brownsville Station album is mostly complete, I will upload the last couple of tracks late Saturday night or Sunday sometime.

Enjoy!

Saturday Song - Stagger Lee, Stack-O-Lee, etc

Hey, it's songday. Today I pick a song that I believe warrants it and publish an assortment of the covers of that song by various persons and or groups. Pick a few that are new to you and have a listen. It is also, of course, an open thread to talk about anything you feel like.

Today's song is: Stack O' Lee, Stack A Lee, Stagger Lee, etc.

Remember this R&R hit? The studio execs actually found it controversial & demanded some edits.
