Son Seals

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 - 12-24-22

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.


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!
