Tramp - Put A Record On (1974)

                                                                   Tramp
Happily 'Tramp' is a very fine exception to this rule, perhaps because although there is plenty of creative and spontaneous playing on these tracks, the songs themselves, written by Bob Hall and Dennis Cotton, are economical, witty and tightly constructed; there are no twelve minute guitar solos on this record. Every musician contributed hugely to the overall strength of performance that is obvious throughout the set. Dave and Jo-Anne Kelly are renowned for their ability as blues singers, and they tackled each song whole-heartedly, often adding new ideas whilst actually recording. Bob Hall is surely the finest boogie pianist in Britain, and has never played better than on these sessions. Bob Brunning is also a highly experienced bass player who has worked and recorded with many blues giants, forming a unit with Bob Hall which has become much in demand by impressed visiting American performers, many of whom have invited them back to the States to form a permanent band! Mick Fleetwood has been the mainstay of Fleetwood Mac for a long time, and when one listens to this exciting playing on this album, one can see why - listen to his inspired and absolutely spontaneous drum lead in during the entirely unrehearsed piano break in 'Too Late For That Now' which leads incidentally to one of the most exciting solos heard in a long while. Danny Kirwan plays crisply and economically, showing his ability, unusual among rock guitarists - to know when not to play, nevertheless turning in some pleasing solos. Dave Brooks proves just how easily he recently stole the show on some of the '73 American Blues Legends performances, and last but not least, percussionist Ian Morton adds a lot of excitement to the proceedings. Here then is a fresh and exciting album representing of more than worthwhile gathering together of some well known musical 'Tramps'.

Tony Kaye Trio - Boredom Is The Devil's Tool (2014)

                                                            Tony Kaye Trio
The TONY KAYE TRiO electrifies audiences with their soulful and passionate brand of deep delta blues and blues/rock.

After over a decade between them of honing their blues musicianship, guitarist Tony Kaye and bassist Viktor Szuroczki started playing blues together in Calgary in 2001, forming a power trio with a local drummer and performing regular gigs in the city, including hosting a long-running weekly blues jam at Kaos Jazz & Blues Bistro.

With the TONY KAYE TRiO, Viktor brings seasoned performance experience as a session musician in his native Hungary and years of playing in popular rock cover bands in and around Calgary. After a hiatus from the music scene, the pair has recently been joined by the multi-talented Holly Magnus, a Mount Royal educated musician who has toured much of Canada and Europe as a drummer with Miss Quincy and the Showdown.

As a regular musician at Kaos before the club's closure, Tony owes much of his fervent blues guitar style to the influences of local top blues musicians like Ron Burke, Bill Dowey, and the late Back Alley John. The TK3 continues to create original music that contributes to the blues and blues/rock genre and helps establishes the band as a group to watch in the future of Alberta's local music scene.

The Pretty Things Yardbirds Blues Band -The Chicago Blues Tapes (1991)

                                           The Pretty Things Yardbirds Blues Band      
This set, attributed to the Pretty Things-Yardbird Blues Band, is really more Pretty Things (thanks to strong vocal work by Phil May and some striking lead guitar from Dick Taylor, the two cornerstones of the Pretty Things) than the Yardbirds (although former Yardbirds drummer Jim McCarty is on hand), and it doesn’t add much to the legacy of either band, really, although it is a strikingly good outing. The tracks collected here originated when May and Taylor teamed up with McCarty and guitarist and blue harpist Studebaker John and bassist Richard Hite for two George Paulus-produced albums recorded in Chicago in 1991. The sound is very good, and these weren’t throwaway sessions, with the blended band tackling classic songs like “Spoonful,” “You Can’t Judge a Book by the Cover,” “Time Is on My Side” (Taylor was briefly a guitarist for the Rolling Stones early in that group’s career), “Ain’t Got You,” and “Chain of Fools,” among others. Again, nothing here adds much to the legacy of either the Pretty Things or the Yardbirds, but fans of either or both bands will undoubtedly love this interesting curio.

Big Lucky Carter - Lucky 13 (1998)

                                                           Big Lucky Carter
Levester “Big Lucky” Carter (1920-2002), a longtime singer, guitarist, and songwriter in Memphis, was born in Weir, where his father was a sharecropper. The family moved to his grandmother's in French Camp, where Carter attended the Mt. Salem M.B. Church and school. (Texas Johnny Brown, another acclaimed Choctaw County bluesman, attended a different Mt. Salem church and school near Ackerman). Carter's father, Charlie, sang blues and gospel, as did many other farm workers, Lucky recalled: “Late afternoon, you could hear the farmers in the fields. It was better than a radio station. You could hear people singing all around.” He also heard piano music at home from his aunt and his grandmother Susie Carter, and from his uncle's blues records. Guitarists Big Boy Anderson (who also played fiddle), James Henry, Arlee Miller, and men who made music beating on a box and playing a handsaw entertained at local dances. Carter's mother's father, Geet (or Gete, aka G. D.) Hemphill, also played fiddle, as did Dock Hemphill, the progenitor of a prolific musical family that moved to the Tate/Panola County area. Dock's son, multi-instrumentalist Sid Hemphill, recorded for the Library of Congress in 1942 in Sledge. Sid's daughters played guitar, and his granddaughter Jessie Mae Hemphill (1923-2006) was hailed as one of the world's premier female blues performers.

In Memphis Carter often performed in a band led by trumpeter Ed "Prince Gabe" Kirby (1929-1987), a cousin on the Hemphill side. Carter recorded in 1957 for producer Sam Phillips of Sun Records as a member of Kirby's group. Although Sun did not release the songs at the time, some later appeared on European albums. In the '60s he recorded four singles, including two for another famed Memphis producer, Willie Mitchell. His only CD, "Lucky 13," on the British label Blueside, won awards in 1999 from the magazines "Living Blues" in the U.S. and "Soul Bag" in France. French filmmaker Marc Oriol produced a documentary on Carter, "Le Blues du Survivant," which included conversations from Carter's visits with Jessie Mae Hemphill in Como and Arlee Miller (c. 1907-1999, identified in the film as R. Lee Miller) in Weir.

The famed Staple Singers family also had Choctaw County roots. Roebuck "Pops" Staples' grandfather, William Staples (born c. 1835), and father, Warren (b. 1869) were from an area near Huntsville that was carved out to form part of Montgomery County in 1871. Pops Staples (1914-2000) was an accomplished blues guitarist in his early years and later led the Staple Singers. He credited his grandfather with passing on spirituals that became features of the Staple Singers' repertoire.

Short Stuff - Talk Is Cheap (1980)

                                                                   Short Stuff
Short Stuff, were an innovative Milwaukee based band very popular in S.E Wisconsin and throughout the US midwest in the 1970's. The band led by singer, songwriter and stellar blues harmonica player Jim Liban pioneered the blues/rock sound later identified with bands like the Fabulous Thunderbirds and SRV. Short Stuff released this 2° Album, "Talk Is Cheap" in the early 80's. "Short Stuff" may be an obscure album, but it's pure kick-ass funk, soul, blues, and rock! Short Stuff's keyboard player/vocalist Junior Brantley went on to play with The Thunderbirds and later Roomfull of Blues and Jimmie Vaughan. Jim Liban still plays in a more traditional vein with his trio. He has earned global cult status as one of the greatest post-war blues harmonica players. Many of his songs have been recorded by great artists like Johnny Winter and Lonnie Brooks.

Whiskey Howl - Whiskey Howl (1972)

                                                          Whiskey Howl
Whiskey Howl were a Canadian pioneer band playing blues in their country. I admit to having a certain weakness for Canadian groups, it will be because some of them are on my favorites list.
The band was formed in the late 60's in Toronto. John Witmer (vocals), Peter Boyko (guitar), Gary Penner (bass), John ("BJ") Bjarnason (harmonica) and Ron Sullivan (drums) formed the initial lineup. They had the opportunity to open for Led Zeppelin, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Johnny Winter, Big Mama Thornton, Screaming Lord Sutch, Elvin Jones, Chuck Berry, BB King, etc. In 1972 they record their only album, "Whiskey Howl", with only John Witmer as a founding member. The recording was produced by Johnny Sandlin (Allman Brothers Band) and collaborated playing keyboards, Chuck Leavell, member of the ABB. That same year they would separate. Later they met again on several occasions.
Whiskey Howl presents ten blues with a great variety of rhythms. In some of the topics we can find the collaboration of a wind section, "Caledonia" or "Early In The Morning", can be a good example. They also dare with the famous "Mother Earth" of Memphis Slim, the result is excellent. The collaboration of Chuck Leavell (The Allman Brothers Band, Eric Clapton, Rolling Stones) is vital in one of the star songs, "Pullin 'The Midnight". Test of the versatility of the group is "Rock Island Line", sung to "capella", or "Jessie's Song", blues-folk, which closes the recording. In short, a round disc.

Blues Image - Blues Image (1969)

                                                             Blues Image
A minor hit following its release in early 1969, Blues Image's debut album is very much cut in the image of the British blues bands that inspired the group in the first place, without ever nodding slavishly toward their examples. Rather, the two drummer lineup, with its penchant for Latin and other esoteric breaks and rhythms, places Blues Image closer to a swampy Santana than Cream or Fleetwood Mac, with solid rockers like "(Do You Have) Something to Say," "Outside Was Night," and "Yesterday Could Be Today" also adding a healthy dose of psychedelia to the proceedings. Often overlooked in favor of the band's hit-packing second album, Blues Image is nevertheless a punchy, and thoroughly enjoyable set, loaded with a musical promise that would explode into day-glo prominence across the course of their sophomore set.

Kat Baloun - She's Got It (2013)

                                                                      Kat Baloun
Born Katherine Elise Baloun, July 27, 1956 in El Paso, Texas, Kat's mother got her started on the piano at 7, she learned the violin, and then at 13, she picked up the harmonica. At this time, there was a new genre of blues music coming out, that had influenced Kat. In 1994 she moved to Berlin and put her own band together. With a smoky voice that captivates with a wealth of color, warmth, and deep tones, this master of the harmonica will bring out the applause in you and you'll be left hardly able to catch your breath. But wait, Europe's premier blues guitarist, Tomi Leino comes at ya too with a blast of fine fretwork that will amaze. A Dynamic Duo, for sure.

The Electric Flag - The Band Kept Playing (1974)

                                                          The Electric Flag
The Band Kept Playing contains some of the best music ever recorded by the Electric Flag, but it also demonstrates why they ultimately failed to catch on as well as they should have despite their impressive line-up. On the one hand, "Every Now and Then" ranks among the best songs Buddy Miles ever wrote, and "Earthquake Country" is a classic piece of early-‘70s soul-rock. Unfortunately, most of the material is well-played but rather short on energy and creativity. "Make Your Move," for instance, buries a promising clavinet riff under lazy, mediocre rock guitars and silly lyrics. The nadir, though has to be "Sweet Soul Music," possibly the corniest, most embarrassingly dated would-be rock anthem of the era. Though nothing else on the record is as abysmal, too much clearly shows that, by 1974, the Electric Flag was so burnt out and exhausted that their attempted comeback was doomed before it even started. Jerry Wexler's production, which sounds flat and unimaginative at times, emphasizes the horn section over the band members, even though their playing (especially Miles' and Barry Goldberg's ) is often quite fluid. Sadly, it's not enough to save the album. Despite some intermittently exciting moments, The Band Kept Playing is a characteristic end to a promising but flawed career.

Mojo - Not For Nothin' (1993)

                                                                      Mojo
MOJO, is Mojo Stu's earlier incarnation as a Rock-Blues artist, and this CD 'Not For Nothin' was released in '93 to industry critical acclaim and national college station radioplay. The CD's ten tracks feature memorable melodies and lyrics, phenomenal guitar and slide guitar work, and guest appearances from top Philly acts.(Notably, Tom Kiefer of Cinderella backs up vocals on two tracks.)

A variety of really cool guitars were used in the production, a gaggle of very vintage Les Pauls including a '58 Burst, '59 Gold Top, and an awesome ALL GOLD '56 with P90 pickups (featured on the slide lead on track #2 Camel Toe Boogie). Also featured is Mojo Stu's not so secret weapon...a '67 Goya Rangemaster, which has push button controls and the stupidest headstock ever created, but is an awesome slide guitar (featured on track^ Drive Me Crazy).
We only used one amp, an early Marshall JMP 50 watt and a vintage slant cab, and a few stomp boxes...the best of which is an early Morley FuzzWah that is scary good (featured on the lead in track #7 Not For Nothin)
Hope y'all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed makin' it!

Richie Barron - Rather Have The Green Than The Blues (2007)

                                                               Richie Barron
"RATHER HAVE THE GREEN THAN THE BLUES" is full of smokin' hot, jumpin' and funky blues, that will surely get you moving.  This well produced disc contains twelve originals by The Barron of the Blues - RICHIE BARRON.  For this particular project RICHIE assembled enough people to create a good size orchestra.  Joining him, on vocals and guitars are: MARK "JELLYROLL" BURGSTAHLER, JEROME FLETCHER and BOBBY JORDAN on guitars; RANDY FORRESTER, MICHAEL "SPIDERMAN" MARTIN, RICH SMITH, RICH SCHAFFER and DAVID KESNER on keyboards; STUART VIETS on saxophones; RICH ARMSTRONG on trumpet; ED BARLEY on trombone; EVAN PALMERSTON, DAVID MORENO and JOHNNY YO on bass; DONNY BALDWIN, GREG ELMORE and JEFF CREGG on drums; RICHARD "BANDITO" SEGOVIA on timbales and conga; BILL NOTEMAN on harmonica; and MICHELE and LAURA on wonderfully melodic and harmonic backup vocals.

The disc doesn't start - it rips open with a flaming hot track called "TAHOE BOOGIE".  The whole band - whoever they may be on this track - is in an all out, full blown jam.  Led by the fierce rhythm - and I do mean fierce, everyone is a highlight on what I'm already calling one of the discs best tracks.  I just couldn't get enough of the smoking horns, the hot sax solos, the great guitar riffs and the vibrant vocals.  It took me about a dozen replays just to get through this paragraph.  Wow! What a hell of a first impression.

The title track, "I'D RATHER HAVE THE GREEN THAN THE BLUES", could probably be called "THE BLUES MAN'S ANTHEM".  I'm sure most of them would gladly trade in the blues for the green.  RICHIE makes it quite clear that he'd rather drive a Cadillac than his beat up Chevrolet, eat steak and lobster over his red beans and rice and he'd rather see patent leather or alligator when he looks down at his old beat up shoes.......yes, he'd rather have the green than blues.  More great guitar work and lots of hot piano on this one.
Funk fans will certainly favor "NO TROUBLE TONIGHT".  Unfortunately, with so many different players on the different instruments, and no indication on the liner notes as to who is on what track, all I can say is whoever it is on bass and drums is doing a hell of a job.  Add more rippin' guitar and lots of hot horns and this is another smoker.  The chorus will definitely "funk you up".
As this very mellow and low down blues track indicates, things are a bit slower down on "GRANDPA'S FARM".  One of the highlights on this track is the mixing.  The sound, clearness and volume of all the instruments and vocals are absolutely perfect.  Great vocals, harp and sax by RICHIE, BILL and STEWART make this another of the discs best.
 If I gave out awards for rhythm, the players on "RATHER HAVE THE GREEN THAN THE BLUES" would be a lock to win it.  Once again, on "SOMEBODY'S GOT TO GO", the rhythm section has me in total awe.  More good vocals, guitar and some killer piano highlight this one as well.

Excellent vocals and lyrics make this next track.  It seems that no matter what RICHIE is behind on, and it sounds like quit a bit, he can still address a certain class of people by claiming "I'M STILL AHEAD OF YOU".  Great horn work adds to this soulful, funky number.

Cargo and the Heavy Lifters - Live at Jammin' Java (2016)

                                                                    Cargo
Cargo and the Heavy Lifters perform a broad range of music from Blues to Soul to Rock to Country. The music is a mix of original and covers that span 50 years of American music.
The group was built around the vocal stylizations of Randy McCargo. McCargo spent nearly four decades as a back-up singer and sound engineer. He began his career with DC area bands, and worked his way up to supporting internationally renowned performers and Grammy winners including Double Trouble, Shania Twain, and Ann Wilson of Heart.
The group was founded shortly after the loss of McCargo’s cousin and local Blues legend Chris Polk. Deacons bandleader John O’Connor and McCargo originally met in 1996 when Polk and O’Connor formed the Deacons. At Polk’s funeral, O’Connor and McCargo discussed Polk’s long-time dream of building a group around McCargo’s exceptional voice, and decided to honor Chris by making that dream a reality. Since the group’s debut in the Summer of 2015, they have filled nightclubs and concert halls to maximum capacity with excited fans young and old.
O’Connor dissolved his own group, the Deacons after 19 years, hundreds of performances, and 4 CDs, to focus exclusively on building Cargo and the Heavy Lifters. O’Connor called on former Deacons John Sterling, Jim Wilson, and Shawn Paxton to join the project. The result of this union combines an amazing vocalist with superlative musicianship that yields energetic and dynamic performances that are unforgettable.

                                                             Mike Bloomfield
Michael Bernard Bloomfield (July 28, 1943 – February 15, 1981) was an American guitarist and composer, born in Chicago, Illinois, who became one of the first popular music superstars of the 1960s to earn his reputation almost entirely on his instrumental prowess, since he rarely sang before 1969. Respected for his guitar playing, Bloomfield knew and played with many of Chicago's blues legends before achieving his own fame and was instrumental in popularizing blues music in the mid-1960s. He was ranked No. 22 on Rolling Stone's list of "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2003 and No. 42 by the same magazine in 2011. He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2012 and, as a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015.

The Tate's Hell Blues Band - Sooped Up Southern Boys (2009)

                                                      The Tate's Hell Blues Band
The Tate’s Hell Blues Band is a Florida Panhandle-based (Apalachicola, FL) 3-piece band that plays a potent mix of blues and blues-rock that is dance-friendly and flat-out fun. They write and play their own material as well as choice cover tunes. The band consists of Miles Creamer on bass & vocals, C. S. Holt on guitar & vocals, and Royce Johns on drums & vocals. C. S. Holt is the primary songwriter and vocalist for the band, and his soulful vocals and stinging guitar lines are a potent mix. The rhythm section of Creamer and Johns drives the band along in fine fashion. The CD art may lead you to the conclusion that these 3 musicians are rough-and-tumble characters (and they may well be) but don’t let that dissuade you from checking out this album. There is a glut of self-produced CDs out there nowadays, and you never know what you’ll really be getting when you slap one in your CD player. But this one, Sooped Up Southern Boys, is a pleasant surprise – it’s a solid, enjoyable effort that the guys should be very proud of.
