David Kiefer aka San Pedro Slim has a bad habit of releasing excellent cd’s all too infrequently.Recorded and supported by NATHAN JAMES this racous set of harp blues is as good as anything Slim has released.Quirky songs, great rhythm support and a tongue planted firmly in the cheek make this a fave here at Bluebeat.The RHYTHM SCRATCHERS are a great band for Slim and RICK HOLMSTROM adds his usual stellar support.
West Coast Blues Harmonica and Vocals. Traditional in style. All original songs.

Perry & the Pumpers – Movin’ At Midnight

Original Released Date: 1998
Reissue Date: August 1, 2012
Genre: Blues, West Coast Blues

Label: Sweetgrass Music

In the early ’70s Phil Aaberg made his way to San Francisco’s North Beach and joined a blues band called Perry & The Pumpers. Night after night they played a driving, thumping, good time blend of American Roots music. After decades of honing their talents to get it right, they’ve reunited to bring you Movin’ at Midnight. Honest music, heartfelt and soulful – dust off your dancing shoes!Almost unbelievably, Perry is still doing that thing he does so well, and it must have been fate that, through a convoluted series of circumstances, he was reunited with some of his old bandmates Phil Aaberg and Steve Ehrmann, and a few new Characters – and exceptional musicians. Some of us feel that he’s never sounded better. The result is this CD, just honest music, heartfelt and soulful, without the electronic and contrived gimmicks present in so much of what passes for music today. These tracks were recorded live with no cheating ( no perfection here, just like life), and a few solos and vocals were added later.
The spirit of Wumper’s Old Man and North Beach lives on in this music and in Perry and the Pumpers…

Line up:

Perry Welsh – Lead vocals, harmonica
Phil Aaberg – Piano all tracks, accordion on « Hey, little girl »
Paul Ravelli – Rock-steady drums all tracks, percussion
Steve Ehrmann – Bass all tracks

 

01 – Roberta [00:03:54]
