Blues Show

April 7, 2006

Here is a Blues Podcast for the listening pleasure of any blues music fans. I need to pull together a setlist and notes for this show and post them here in PDF format. Till I get a chance to do that, please enjoy the show.

This is a one-hour program featuring the music of Bobby Bland, T-Bone Walker, John Lee Hooker (pictured), RL Burnside, John Mayall & Eric Clapton, Luther Allison, Greg & Duane Allman, Clarence Gatemouth Brown, the legendary Otis Rush, and the dead Eva Cassidy (RIP).

This music is studio. It’s live. It spans from the 40’s to the 90’s.

(It must be said, also, that the Gatemouth Brown song with the weird cuts at each end was due to the shitty recording that I have. Mr. Brown lost his home in Slidell, Louisiana to Hurricane Katrina and died of cancer and a broken heart two weeks later in Orange, Texas. He was in his 70’s, played about 6 or 7 different instruments and began his career with this song, “Okie Dokie Stomp”, in about 1947. I had the pleasure of seeing him perform at the the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival (Jazzfest) in 1998.)
