Almost two and a half decades and over 16 albums later they continue to add to their growing army of followers, and it’s not unheard of to find three generations from the same family at a gig.

Johnny Winter – Live Bootleg Series, Vol.4 (2009)

 

Release Date:February 10, 2009
Genre: Blues, Blues Rock
Label:Friday Music
USA

 

Another installment of Johnny Winter’s Bootleg Series and another solid album. Fans of the bluesy, electric Johnny Winter can expect the usual fireworks here as he combines technical ability, blazing speed, and aggressive blues rock in a nine track set. The sound quality is the best of the first four bootleg series albums and although the track selection may be stronger on all three of the previous works in the series, he plays the hell out of the tracks on Bootleg Four.

Line up:

Johnny Winter: guitar, vocals,
Jon Paris: bass,
Tom Compton: drums.

 

01. Introduction (0:07)
02. Okie Dokie Stomp (4:59)
03. Looking for Trouble (9:00)

Genre: Rock, Pop
Label: Unofficial, Bootleg,
Source: FM Broadcast
UK

 

The Yardbirds’ performance at Stockholm’s Concert Hall in Sweden, on 4 April 1967 took place after many months of touring, during which the Yardbirds had been to the United States twice and as far away as Australia and New Zealand. March of 1967 found them briefly back home again, however, in Sweden the band (now a foursome featuring Jimmy Page on guitar) did little in the way of promoting it, preferring to stick mainly to crowd pleasers like “Heart Full Of Soul”, “Shapes Of Things” and “Over Under Sideways Down”. This is a high quality soundboard recording that originally aired on Swedish radio.

Line up:

Jimmy Page: guitar,
Jim McCarty: drums,
Chris Dreja: bass,
Keith Relf: vocals, harmonica

 

SIDE A:
1. Shapes Of Things

After nearly a decade of making noisy rock music, The Sidekicks have the audacity to finally grow up and their newfound maturity.

The Blues Band formed at the start of the 1980s to bring back the earthy spirit of the Blues, and they quickly found an audience that yearned for some ‘real music’.

Mick Taylor – Coastin Home (1995)

 

Release Date: November 3, 1995
Genre: Blues, Blues Rock, Classic Rock
Label: Shattered Music
USA

 

Originally issued in 1995 as Live at 14 Below: Coastin’ Home, the re-release features the same exact track listing but a different album cover. No matter. Taylor’s playing is still exceptional, especially on readings of the Stones’ « Can’t You Hear Me Knockin' » and Willie Dixon’s « You Shook Me » (both of which are ten-minute-plus jam fests). If you’ve lost track of Taylor since the early ’70s, 14 Below will prove that arguably the finest lead guitarist to pass through the Stones’ ranks has still got what it takes.

Howlin’ Wolf featuring Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Bill Wyman & Charlie Watts – The London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions (2006)

 

Release Date:July 26, 1989
Original released Date: 1971
Genre: Blues, Chicago Blues
Label:Chess/MCA Records
USA

 

For the casual blues fan with a scant knowledge of the Wolf, this 1971 pairing, with Eric Clapton, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts from the Rolling Stones, Ringo Starr, and other British superstars, appears on the surface to be one hell of a super session. But those lofty notions are quickly dispelled once you put this disc on the player and hit play. While it’s nowhere near as awful as some blues purists make it out to be, the disparity of energy levels between the Wolf and his U.K. acolytes is not only palpable but downright depressing. Wolf was a very sick man at this juncture and Norman Dayron’s non-production idea of just doing remakes of earlier Chess classics is wrongheaded in the extreme. The rehearsal snippet of Wolf trying to teach the band how to play Willie Dixon’s « Little Red Rooster » shows just how far off the mark the whole concept of this rock superstar melange truly is. Even Eric Clapton, who usually welcomes any chance to play with one of his idols, has criticized this album repeatedly in interviews, which speaks volumes in and of itself.

Line up:

Howlin’ Wolf – Vocals, Acoustic Guitar (tracks: 9), Harmonica (tracks: 4,8)
Eric Clapton – Lead Guitar
Hubert Sumlin – Rhythm Guitar
Bill Wyman – Bass Guitar, Cowbell, Shaker
Charlie Watts – Drums, Congas, Percussion
Steve Winwood – Piano, Organ
Ian Stewart – Piano (tracks: 1,7,11,13)

The Allman Brothers Band – Fillmore East, February (1970)

 

Release Date: March 4, 1997
Genre: Blues, Blues-Rock, Southern Rock,  Jam Band
Label: Grateful Dead Records
USA

 

« The Allman Brothers shared the bill with the Grateful Dead on several notable occasions. This release recalls the Brothers in support of the Dead and Love in February 1970 at the fabulous Fillmore East. No specific dates for the performances are noted, so it is presumed this release is a composite from recordings made at some point during the two sets per night that the Allman’s performed on February 11th through the 14th. There is no mistaking the unbridled fervor of the original line-up of the band. Rising to the challenge of exploratory psychedelia — while remaining ever faithful to their Southern blues roots — blues standards such as « (I’m Gonna Move to The) Outskirts of Town » and « Hoochie Coochie Man » are strengthened and extended beyond their typical assertions. No longer are they relegated to the inadequately rendered thrashings of garage rock. Betts and the Allman’s understand the dynamics of blues. »– AMG Review by Lindsay Planer

 

Line up:

Duane Allman, lead and slide guitars,
Gregg Allman, vocals, Hammond B-3 Organ,
Dickey Betts, lead guitar,
