Gallagher’s fourth and final studio set for Chrysalis finds the Irish blues-rocker in prime form. Arriving only a year after Photo-Finish, when he spent much of his time on the road, it’s remarkable that Gallagher could continue to churn out the hook-heavy high-quality tunes he wrote for this album.

Line up:

Rory Gallagher – vocals, guitars, dulcimer, harmonica, electric sitar
Gerry McAvoy – bass guitar

The Big Sound Of Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials Electrifying, raucous, pure Chicago blues….Lil’ Ed is a guitarist extraordinaire….slashing slide and flamboyant stage persona.Living Blues In Chicago, a city overflowing with unrivaled blues talent, world-renowned Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials have been standing tall for almost 30 years.

Stevie Ray Vaughan And Double Trouble – Live Alive (1986)

USA FlagRelease Date: February 3, 1987
Genre: Blues, Blues Rock, Rock’n’Roll
Label: Epic/CBS
USA

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

« Live Alive » is a magnificent double-length showcase for Stevie Ray Vaughan’s guitar playing, featuring a number of extended jams on a selection of most of the best material from Vaughan’s first three albums, plus covers of « Willie the Wimp, » « I’m Leaving You (Commit a Crime), » and Stevie Wonder’s « Superstition. » Most live blues recordings have a feeling of intimacy, as if the concerts took place in some out-of-the-way venue for an audience who not only know all the lyrics, but know the performers personally as well. Live Alive, in contrast, feels like a large-scale rock concert, an epic production full of grand gestures. But really, nothing suited Stevie Ray Vaughan’s style better; everything, from the overall sound to the solos, feels big.

Line up:

Stevie Ray Vaughan: guitar, vocals,
Jimmie Vaughan:guitar, bass ( Tks 8, 9, 13)
Tommy Shannon: bass,
Chris « Whipper » Layton: drums,
Reese Wynans: keyboards.

Tomato’s « Dust My Broom » collects some of the last recordings of Elmore James’ career, including « Baby Please Set a Date, » « The Sky Is Crying, » « Done Somebody Wrong, » and « Shake Your Moneymaker. » As is expected, James’ incendiary slide guitar cuts through every track. « Rollin’ and Tumblin’, » « Anna Lee, » « Fine Little Mama, » and « One Way Out » are some of the other highlights of this collection, which may not be as definitive as Rhino’s The Sky Is Crying, but still offers enough essential songs and performances to make it worthwhile.

Genre: Blues
Label: Alligators Records
USA

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

Accurately dubbed « the Queen of Chicago blues » (and sometimes just the blues in general), Koko Taylor helped keep the tradition of big-voiced, brassy female blues belters alive, recasting the spirits of early legends like Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Big Mama Thornton, and Memphis Minnie for the modern age. While some fans may argue that Koko Taylor’s Chess material is slightly superior, there is no denying the power of these Alligator sessions. Deluxe Edition collects 15 of her very best tracks from her Alligator releases since 1975. Koko Taylor died in Chicago in 3 June 2009 after experiencing complications from surgery for gastrointestinal bleeding. She was 80 years old.

Line up:

Taylor (vocals)
B.B. King, Buddy Guy (vocals, guitar)
Mighty Joe Young (guitar)

The above paragraph is the supposed story behind this recording as told on the CD inlay. The real story is that the band didn’t like the way the album turned out and paid a large sum of money to keep it from being released. As you would expect, someone got their hands on a copy and bootlegged it.
These recording, notable for their raw energy and rare slide guitarwork are essential for all true collectors.

Chicago has always had a reputation as a ”wide open town” with a high tolerance for gangsters, illegal liquor, and crooked politicians. It has also been the home for countless black musicians and the birthplace of a distinctly urban blues – more sophisticated, cynical, and street-smart than the anguished songs of the Mississippi delta a music called the Chicago blues. This is the history of that music and the dozens of black artists who congregated on the South and Near West Sides.

Too Slim & The Taildragger – Shiver (2011)

Busload Of Blues - Crumble Roots (2011)

 

USA FlagRelease Date: April 19, 2011
Genre: Blues, Blues Rock
Label: Underworld Records
USA (Seattle)

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

Sixteen albums into a career that hasn’t exactly made him a household name, even in his native Northwest, Tim « Too Slim » Langford not only seems reinvigorated but in 2011 released one of the finest albums in his extensive catalog. There’s plenty of R&B-laced rock here but the veteran guitarist has learned to use the studio well, keeping these performances crisp, exciting, and more sonically interesting than in the past.

Line up:

Tim « Too Slim » Langford: lead vocals, guitar,
Polly O’Keary: bass, vocals,
Jeffrey « Shakey » Fowlkes: drums.

Cactus (Carmine Appice, Tim Bogert, Jim McCarty and the late Rusty Day who died in 1982) were called « The American Led Zeppelin » in 1970. Now, four decades later, the band that made such an impression with their loud blues-edged hard rock madness…the band that influenced the likes of Van Halen, Joe Bonamassa, David Coverdale, and Kid Rock…the band that foreshadowed heavy music itself…are back. This time, they are providing the lusty macho soul. BLACK DAWN is the band’ newest studio album; a compelling step into the future upon a bridge firmly built in the past.

Line up:

Carmine Appice: drums,vocals,
Jim McCarty: guitar,
Jimmy Kunes: vocals,
Randy Pratt: harmonica,
Pete Bremy: bass.
