The Evening Blues - 3-6-23Submitted by joe shikspack on Mon, 03/06/2023 - 2:30pm
Afternoon folks! I hope that you're all having a great xmas eve!
Well, I've got another pile of great stuff for you this week. There's a live recording of a bunch of great blues guys, Joe Turner, Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, Leon Thomas and T-Bone Walker to start off with. Otis Redding and Carla Thomas did an album together and most of it is next. After that we've got some great Chicago blues from Son Seals. After that there's an early John Mayall's Bluesbreakers (Mick Taylor period) album, a Michael Bloomfield album and a Doctor Feelgood album. In the diversity department, we've got Renaissance - after the Yardbirds broke up Keith Relf and Jim McCarty formed Renaissance, which is a completely different animal from the Yardbirds. There's a Richard and Linda Thompson album and finishing up there's an assortment of r&b vocal groups singles.
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!
Well, there's albums by Otis Redding and Chuck Berry. There's also a great album of Albert King and Otis Rush tunes that Youtube mysteriously split into 3 playlists - go figure! Rounding things out, there's another Savoy Brown album and a double live album by the Climax Blues Band.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the tunes!
