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:

first session featuring only Hooker´s guitar plus drums*
– second session with accomp. similar to above

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

The second volume of the Mbirafon “Blues At Home” Collection, this CD features a well-known and appreciated blues rediscovery of the ’60s. The son of a fiddler and ex-slave, Sam Chatmon was born in Bolton, Mississippi, in 1899 and belonged to a large family of Mississippi Delta musicians. Among the titles they recorded, “Sitting on Top of the World” and “Stop and Listen” became blues standards. Starting to play music at the early age of five, Sam developed a complex guitar technique, coupled with a highly expressive vocal style. His huge repertoire encompasses pre-blues influences, ragtime, popular songs, and spirited renditions of blues hits of the ’50s and ’60s, as well as his own original compositions.The album was recorded in a relaxed session held on August 6th, 1976, at his private home in Hollandale, Mississippi.

These shifty outlaws have played in gutterrock bands around the area for years. The switch to this drunken hillbilly style was a natural switch, having grown up playing these songs around campfires. Uncle Ben’s Remedy brings that “campfire” feel to every show. So come join them, stomp your feet, sing along, and at some point realize you’ve stayed way too late.

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of Chess Records albums from the Blues great: 1966’s Muddy, Brass And The Blues and 1973’s Can’t Get No Grindin’. Muddy, Brass And The Blues was a massive undertaking in direction which a couple of years later John Mayall.Muddy Waters brought a Son House-like Delta country-blues style north with him from Mississippi to Chicago in 1943, intent on making a living from music. Switching from acoustic to electric guitar in order to be better heard in the Chicago clubs and bars, Waters gradually assembled one of the greatest ongoing bands in the history of blues, and in the process, he and his band assembled the very template for classic Chicago blues. Waters first cut a track for the Chess Brothers in 1947, who released it on their Aristocrat Records imprint, and for the next two decades or so, he turned out the basic iconic catalog of electric Chicago blues for various Chess imprints. This set combines two of his Chess albums, 1967’s Muddy, Brass and the Blues, which adds horns and prominent organ to Waters’ basic band format, and 1973’s Can’t Get No Grindin’, his next-to-the-last album release for Chess, which featured the debut of Pinetop Perkins as pianist in the Muddy Waters Band.

Kenny Brown – Goin’ Back To Mississippi (2014)

Kenny Brown - Goin' Back To Mississippi (2014)

Genre: Blues, Country Blues
Label: Big Legal Mess

A lot has happened in Kenny Brown’s life since this record, his first solo release, was issued in 1996.Almost two decades later, he’s traveled the world, most notably as a sideman with R.L. Burnside, until R.L.’s passing in 2005, but many times since as a well-respected solo performer in his own right.For the past eight years, heading in to the ninth as I write this, he and his wife, Sara, have hosted the North Mississippi Hill Country Picnic, a two-day gathering, carrying on the musical tradition of the region and continuing to showcase the artists that Kenny has now become an elder statesman of.This first solo release showcases not only the origins of his musical education, tracks learned from his neighbor and mentor, Joe Callicott, growing up in Nesbit, Mississippi, but also others he’s apprenticed with and learned more from over the years, such as R.L. and the late Junior Kimbrough. His love for rock n’ roll and rockabilly is also evident here, with the blazing title track “Goin’ Back To Mississippi”, later “Hold Me Baby”.

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!
