Hubert Sumlin - Wake Up Call

Terry Quiett Band - Just My Luck

Love Ronnie - I first saw him live around 1988 and he's been one of my favorite guitar players evah since.   Probably seen him 10-12 times, mostly in little seedy smokey dives.

Tinsley Ellis - Highwayman Live
Walter Trout - Live at the Tampa Bay Blues Fest

With Joe Bonnamassa out doing the theaters for $85 a ticket, these two are widely regarded as the top two guitarslingers amongst the regulars on the blues festival circuit.  Incredibly, they appeared back to back Sunday at the Bayfront Blues Festival in Duluth, MN.

This weekend:

Curtis Salgado - Soul Shot
I wouldn't be surprised if, at the least, this album earns Grammy and Blues Music Award nominations for best album of 2012.  Curtis has been doing his rhythm-and-bluesy stuff in the Pacific Northwest for over 20 years.  I guess you could call it Rainy Days and Lattes Soul.  After seven albums, the last four on Shananchie, this is his Alligator Records debut.  He's assembled a full complement of top-notch studio musicians, with horns and backup singers.  Make no mistake, however, the star of this show is Curtis, with his soulful voice and harp playing.  Dude got pipes.  Two songs on this disc, George Clinton's Gettin' to Know You and an original He Plays His Harmonica, are the best Stevie Wonder-kinda songs I've heard since Stevie Wonder quit doing 'em to pursue his (not so) secret life with plants.  Nice mix of originals and covers on this album, which includes interpretations of Johnny Guitar Watson's Strung Out and Otis Redding's Love Man.

Greyboy Allstars - What Happened to Television
Not sure if this is jazzed up funk or funked up jazz, but no matter, nice groove to this album.  The Allstars include Karl Denson and Robert Walter, who will be on the upcoming Jamcruise.

Listening to 3 Awesome Vinyls picked up at a record show yesterday:

Maggot Brain (Funkadelic) (Westwood Records - 1971) If you've never heard the Eddie Hazel guitar solo you really need to check it out

Cuttin' Up (The Johnny Otis Show) (Epic Records - 1970) Includes the R&B classic "Watts Breakaway".   Johnny Otis was also a member of Snatch & the Poontangs who recorded "The Great Stack A Lee" which as we all know has been covered by JJ & the boys

The Best of, Vol. 2 (Wilson Pickett) (Atlantic Records - 1971)  Includes the classic song "Hey Joe" which it has been told that JJ has actually covered (though to my knowledge it was only in front of a handful of people)

And I believe Best of Vol 2 also includes the Hey Jude cover with some of the early beastyness that made Duane Allman famous.  It was the guitar solos and horns in the coda that powerfully came to mind the first time I heard Lochloosa live.  Still burns holes through me shoes. 

Amen on Maggot Brain.

Just saw  Unknown Hinson  this past Saturday night at The Bamboo Room in Lake Worth, FL.   Might not be everybody's thing (country western psychobilly blues) but WOW was he ever good.

Nice call, GotMo.  Put Little Piece of Dixie in the car player en route to a Springsteen show last night, ended up getting 3 full plays.

You might like The Steepwater Band.  They preceeded JJG&M at the Prairie Dog Fest this past July.  Southern rock as performed by midwesterners.

Yep, looking forward to meeting up in Deland.

Ute took me to the Nicki Bluhm show -- and we were floored! Fantastic voice, amazing presence, and tight band! Not to forget her amazing opening act -- Seth Walker -- gorgeous man with great lyrics and guitar playing. Don't miss either of these shows if you can help it!

Just pulled out my old Zombies vinyl in honor of their tour which just kicked off in Montreal.    One of my favorite bands EVER.

Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent are both in the current lineup.

Check their schedule for limited shows in the United States.

Hi All.  I've really enjoyed reading this very long topic - highly eductional.  When I have got some spare time I intend to apply some serious thought to composing a response this topis deserves!  But that will be another time.  However, I just had to stick this quicky up 'cause when I stumbled across this band it just blew me away.  I've seen at least one reference to JP Soars on the website somewhere, but nothing about his recent-ish colabaration with Damon Fowler and Victor Wainright.  They call themselves Southern Hospitality - and I think Y'all might like them (you will just have to accept my sincere apologies if your fellow Mofrovian from the UK seems to be trying to teach your Grandma to suck eggs!) 







P.S - Hope the videos work - never tried posting b4

Nice call, ICBC.  Really like Southern Hosp.  They hit quite a few blues festivals, the blues cruises and a ton of club dates in Fla.  I've been a Damon Fowler fan for many years, so got to Southern Hosp. from there.  I believe Damon is from the Tampa/St Pete area, not sure about the others, but assumed somewhere in Florida.
