enre: Blues, Blues Soul
Label: Lionfish Music Group
USA

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

Whether celebrated as a sincere tribute or derided as a tongue-in-cheek put-on, the Blues Brothers — Joliet Jake and his silent brother Elwood — was among the most popular groups of the late ’70s; what started as a skit on the hit NBC television sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live quickly snowballed to become a true phenomenon, complete with hit records, a sold-out concert tour, and even a feature film. Clad in vintage black suits, narrow ties, fedoras, and omnipresent wrap-around sunglasses, the Blues Brothers delivered spirited renditions of classic soul hits in the tradition of the signature Stax-Volt sound; purists may still cringe, but if nothing else the group deserves credit for introducing any number of soul and blues classics to a new generation of listeners while also allowing some of the most gifted session men in the business a chance to shine on-stage and -screen.

When Billy Bourbon hired Guy Schwartz to tour with his band in 2012, Guy realized that they each had lots of songs about weed, and should probably record some of them together. Billy agreed. BOURBONandSCHWARTZ was born, baptized in weed, and recorded by Roger Tausz at Bong Island Sound. The rest is history and hysterical! Ten new songs written by Guy & Billy about marijuana, along with a couple classic covers (Little Feat’s ‘Willin’, and Snoop Dogg’s ‘My Medicine’). Texas music and more!
