Robin Trower

Album of the Week 2-10-24

Afternoon folks!

Here we go. Starting off we've got an album of acoustic blues from one of Leroy Carr's guitar accompanists, Bill Gaither, followed by a compilation of Chicago harmonica blues. After that, I've uploaded half of a compilation album of Albert King and Little Milton Campbell. Youtube had a site error the other night and I wasn't able to get Little Milton's side uploaded as I had planned, but I'll try to get it uploaded as soon as I can. After that, there's some blues rock with Johnny Winter And followed by a live album from Robin Trower. In the diversity department, there's an amusing solo album from Peter Stampfel, one of the founders of the Holy Modal Rounders. Finally, there's a single from King Curtis with Eric Clapton that never got much attention but should have.

Have a great weekend and enjoy!

Afternoon folks!

This week we've got some Koko Taylor and some Bo Diddley in the blues category. In the blues-rock category we've got a bunch of stuff - an album from Robin Trower, an EP from Canned Heat in the mid-80's, an album from The Pirates, a compilation album from Faces and the part of a mid-period Fleetwood Mac album that the lords of copyright will allow to be heard. To finish off, in the diversity department there's a psychedelic album from Strawberry Alarm Clock.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Album of the Week 11-4-23

Afternoon folks!

There's a big haul of good stuff this week starting off with 3 (count 'em) 3(!) blues albums. There's albums by Chicago blues guy Eddy Clearwater, Louisiana swamp blues harmonica player Lazy Lester and from the Pacific Northwest there's the Delvon LaMarr organ trio. In the blues-rock category we start off with an often overlooked album from Mike Bloomfield, John Hammond and Dr. John - whenever I used to play it on the air people would call the station to ask what is that? After that there's albums by Robin Trower, and the J. Geils Band.

If all that leaves you feeling like you want to mellow out, there's a lesser-known Van Morrison album and we finish off with acoustic guitarist Norman Blake recorded live.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
