Funky Mama's House is the latest set of tracks for the sixty-eight year old Clarence Sims (aka Fillmore Slim) legendary bluesman and pimp. After a five-year stint in federal penitentiaries Sims decided to make the guitar his mainstay. In 1987 the parolee/bluesman recorded 'Born to Sing the Blues' under the name Clarence 'Guitar' Sims. Man can this cat sing the blues. The stars were perfectly aligned and the blues gods were smiling on Filmore when he recorded 'Funky Mama's House'. It has all the makings for a classic blues CD; soulful vocals, bluesy guitar riffs, moving guitar and bass lines, and a bit of funk. After three listenings it's still great. I liked it a bunch.

Frank Goldwasser (aka Paris Slim) on second guitar

Roger Perry playing steel guitar, keyboard, guitar and bass

Ed And The Gators is een allround bluesband om U tegen te zeggen!

Een optreden van Ed and the Gators neemt je zowaar mee doorheen de geschiedenis van de blues. Naast een aantal covers die in een eigen arrangement gegoten werden, brengen zij ook heel wat eigen nummers.

Het programma varieert van rauwe Chicago blues over swingende West-Coast naar funky New-Orleans stuff af en toe afgewisseld met een stevige Texaanse shuffle of wat ouderwetse country blues … You name it, they play it.

Dit alles wordt gebracht door 4 ras-muzikanten die hun strepen reeds geruime tijd verdienden in verschillende top bands. (http://vi.be/edandthegators)

Radiators (IRL) 1978 Ghostown





Genre: Rock
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:37:00
Size: 84,70 MB

Ireland

The Radiators recorded two albums in the group's original incarnation, of which Ghostown is the second.

Ghostown is something of a concept album, documenting the sense of social and cultural isolation felt by many Dubliners throughout the 1970s, sometimes noted as literary and "difficult", especially for a snappy record from a punk band.

The best-known song from the album is probably "Song of the Faithful Departed", written by Philip Chevron, which was originally released as a B-Side but is the Radiator's song that tends to appear on overview collections such as 101 Irish Hits (from IrishMusicMail.com) or compilations that hope to be critically representative such as Dave Fanning's Fab 50.

In 2008 The Irish Times named Ghostown the third best Irish album of all time (jointly with I Am the Greatest by A House), behind Loveless by My Bloody Valentine and Achtung Baby by U2. (https://en.wikipedia.org/)

Modern times revive (een statement van Jules Deelder) is geproduceerd door Rinus Gerritse van Golden Earring. Bovendien debuteerde Broodgitarist David Holestelle jr. op deze plaat. Ondanks dat MTR in 1980 is opgenomen blijven de nummers stuk voor stuk 20 jaar na dato nog steeds rechtovereind staan. Voor mij is dit verreweg de beste plaat die Brood ooit afleverde.

Fire is a natural thing. Guitarists can acquire speed, style, flash, and fury. Fire is more elemental. A player either has it or he doesn’t. Mike Morgan and Jim Suhler have tons of it. The Morgan/Suhler coalition comprises two guitarists of maturity and depth, who solo explosively but inventively, and share a great sense of dynamics. Suhler’s guitar sound is glassy, slashing, and incisive while Morgan’s is brawny, rugged, and retro.(Tim Schuller)

The Morgan/Suhler collaboration disproves the equation 1+1=2. In this case, 1+1= More guitar than you can imagine!

Review by Richie Unterberger

McGuinness Flint's 1971 debut LP was a very of-its-time British roots rock album with a rural feel. While neither blues-rock nor folk-rock, the influence of blues-rock and folk-rock on these easygoing, good-natured rambles was substantial. Particularly evident at times were the influences of Bob Dylan and the Band, and it's no surprise that McGuinness Flint would soon make an album of obscure Dylan covers, including several songs from the Basement Tapes.

It's competent, amiable music with a laid-back, back-to-the-land vibe, often falling back on generic bluesy melodies. The album gets a little more interesting when they reach for moodier, folkier textures and tunes, sometimes with a slightly Paul McCartney-esque pop sensibility.

Tracklist:

01 - Lazy Afternoon 03:54

02 - Bodang Buck 03:06

03 - Mister Mister 02:05

04 - Heritage 02:20

Time: 00:57:40

The final album from the late blues guitar legend and W.C. Handy Award winner Mel Brown. Features previously unreleased tracks of Mel at his very best with his close friend the Chicago harp legend Snooky Pryor, fellow Mississippi mojo master Sam Myers (Anson Funderburgh & The Rockets), Miss Angel and his protege emerging guitar star Enrico Crivellaro. Also includes unreleased vintage tracks from his Bluesway/Impulse era heyday in the early 1970's with additional guitar solos recorded by Mel in 2009. The haunting and achingly beautiful original instrumental title track Love, Lost and Found on which Mel played guitar, piano and B-3 organ may be the pinnacle of his incredible career.
