Brooks, 49, was born in Chicago, and started playing guitar around age six.

King, Buddy Guy, and Koko Taylor.In early 2013 Ronnie Baker Brooks traveled to the late Willie Mitchell’s fabled Royal Studios in Memphis. There he recorded a clutch of new songs with producer/drummer Steve Jordan (Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Robert Cray), the Memphis Horns, and the mighty Hi Rhythm section.

John Lee Hooker – On Campus (1964)

 

Original Release Date: 1964
Remastered Release Reissue: 2000
Genre: Blues, Country Blues, Electric Blues, Delta Blues
Label: Vee-Jay/Collectables
USA

 

Vee Jay’s 1964 album John Lee Hooker on Campus is titled to sound like a live recording but it isn’t. As part of the Collectables Vee Jay reissue campaign, these 12 tracks originally tried to capitalize on Hooker’s emergence on the coffeehouse/college tours he was involved in at the time. This is an electric album that contains excellent material from Hooker, even though the occasional background singers get in the way, attempting to modernize his gritty blues with a smoother soul sound.

Line up:

Recorded in Chicago 1963 (two sessions)
first session featuring only Hooker´s guitar plus drums*
– second session with accomp. similar to above
incl. poss. Memphis Slim,pno
and possibly Martha Reeves & the Vandellas,vocals

This band is hot. Very, very hot. And those aren’t just empty words. After all, the Blues Company from Osnabrück, Germany is neither a hodgepodge of rank beginners nor – to borrow business lingo – a group of new business starters. Rather, they are a team of artists who have made their mark, musicians with experience and know-how aplenty. The musicians at work here have long since ensured that the name of their “company” is a recognised “seal of approval”. In a nutshell, “Blues Company” stands for German’s longest-running and most successful blues band. And with each new recording, with each concert, these pros underscore that their passionate love affair with the blues is burning brightly as ever.

Line up:

Todor „Toscho“ Todorovic: guitar, vocals,
Mike Titré: guitar, harmonica,
Arnold Ogrodnik: bass,

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.

As the legend goes, Robert Johnson infamously started his career by meeting the Devil at the crossroads. By the same token, you could say Apocalypse Blues Revue began playing at the end of the world. « As far as blues goes, The Apocalypse Blues Revue is a little heavier, a little darker, and has some punk rock attitude in the lyrics, » says Shannon.

John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers – A Hard Road (1967)

John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers - A Hard Road (1967)

Genre: Blues Rock, Harmonica Blues, Electric Blues, Southern Rock
Label:London / PolyGram
UK (London)

 

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

It’s the third album (and second studio album) recorded by John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers. Eric Clapton is usually thought of as John Mayall’s most important right-hand man, but the case could also be made for his successor, Peter Green. The future Fleetwood Mac founder leaves a strong stamp on his only album with the Bluesbreakers.Mayall acquits himself fairly well on this mostly original set (with occasional guest horns), though some of the material is fairly mundane. Highlights include the uncharacteristically rambunctious « Leaping Christine » and the cover of Freddie King’s « Someday After a While (You’ll Be Sorry).The cover art and the original LP sleeve design are by Mayall.

Line up:

John Mayall: vocals, guitar, harmonica, piano, organ
Peter Green: guitar, vocals
John McVie: bass
Hughie Flint, Aynsley Dunbar: drums
John Almond, Alan Skidmore: saxophones
Ray Warleigh: wind instruments

Savoy Brown – Raw Sienna / Looking In (1970)

Savoy Brown, originally known as the Savoy Brown Blues Band, are a British blues band formed in 1965, in Battersea, South West London. The « Raw Sienna » a high-water mark by the band, finds them softening their rougher edges and stretching out into jazz territory, yet still retaining a blues foundation.Raw Sienna, issued in March of 1970, was the last album to feature the great Chris Youlden, a fine songwriter and stunning blues singer. Savoy Brown’s blues-rock sound takes on a much more defined feel on 1970’s Looking In and is one of this band’s best efforts. The entire album is saturated with a simple, British blues sound but the pace and the marbled strands of bubbly instrumental perkiness fill it with life.

In conjunction with a DVD, the album was recorded live in the Netherlands club The Paradiso on a single day with little post-production sweetening or audience intervention. This results in a successful balance between sonics and concert sparks. For those who relish his by now standard brand of sturdy, guitar-heavy, Stevie Ray Vaughan-inspired music, Trout is in fine fret-shredding form here.

Blues icon Fred Chapellier has been playing music for more than 20 years. He recorded five solo albums and contributed to innumerable discs by some of the best artists in the field. He is now a household name on The French blues scene, having the largest and most faithful fan base there. Always keen to renew himself and bring news ideas into his music, every of his album is unique and gets rave reviews in the press. This is again the case with “It Never Comes Easy”. This new CD is especially important for Fred who celebrates his 50th birthday in 2016. In order to again surprise his fans and to offer himself the best possible gift it was out of question to skimp on resources. It certainly never comes easy but it sure takes the blues to another level.

Two Timer was formed at the end of 2008. The band plays electric blues, draws on the roots of the style, and keeps the traditional sound which was typical of the ‘60s and the ‘70s. They describe their music as “Grunge blues on steroids.” Our concert repertoire is based on our own work and several covers which have served as inspiration for us to further develop our style and create our original songs ever since TT was formed.

Line up:

Piotr Gorzkowski – vocals
Ernest Kalaczynski – guitar
Max Psuja – drums
Lukasz Rudnicki – bass
Wojciech Rudzinski – harp

K.C. Douglas - Mercury Blues (1998)

Genre: Electric/Acoustic Country Blues, Modern Electric Blues, Electric Delta Blues
Label: Arhoolie Records
USA

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

K.C. Douglas passed away in 1975,but his blues live on with this fine collection. Douglas played low-down country blues. No matter if he was backed by a small group(here it’s Richard Riggins-harmonica,Ron Thompson-guitar,and Jim Marshall-drums)or simply accompanying himself on guitar,his Mississippi up-bringing shone through all his material. With his Mississippi-country guitar and his lived-in voice,Douglas is someone that everyone who likes unpretentious hill-country style blues should consider listening.

Line up:

K.C. Douglas – Composer, Guitar, Vocals
Richard Riggins – harmonica
Jim Marshall – Drums

Long John Hunter – Border Town Legend (1996)

Long John Hunter - Border Town Legend (1996)

 

USA FlagOriginal Released Date: January 31, 1996
Genre: Blues, Electric Blues, Texas Blues
Label: Alligator Records
USA

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

 

For many years Long John Hunter played in clubs without much attention, but that time sweating it out in roadhouses has paid off. During that time, he developed a gutsy, forceful technique that was fully evident on his belated 1993 debut, Ride With Me. Although his second album, Border Town Legend, is a slicker, more accessible effort, Hunter hasn’t lost any of his spicy, distinctive flavor. Working with a horn section, he still manages to make himself the most powerful element on the record — both his guitar playing and his heated vocals ensure that. Furthermore, Hunter’s songwriting is growing stronger. Out of the nine songs he has written or co-written for the album, he has contributed some first-rate tunes that might not stretch beyond generic conventions, but still are mighty fine.

Line up:

Long John Hunter (vocals, guitar);
Hunter Hamonettes (vocals);
Derek O’Brien, Joe Kelley, Jack Andrews (guitar);
Red Rails (tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone);
Art Lewis, Kaz Kazanoff, Mark « Kaz » Kazanoff (tenor saxophone);
Keith Winking, Martin Banks (trumpet);
Johnny Nicholas (piano);
D.B. Cooper (organ);
Dave Keown (acoustic bass);
Kevin Taylor (drums).
