Larry Jon Wilson


Larry Jon Wilson (October 7, 1940 – June 21, 2010) was an American country singer, guitarist and musician. He recorded "Through the Eyes of Little Children" and "I Betcha Heaven's on a Dirt Road". orn in Swainsboro, Georgia, Wilson picked up the guitar and taught himself how to play. In 1975, he released his debut album New Beginnings. Three more albums on the Monument record label imprint of CBS Records followed, Let Me Sing My Song to You (1976), Loose Change (1977), and The Sojourner (1979). 


Despite Wilson's accolades and fans, no hit record emerged. Wilson left the music industry in 1980. He returned in the late 1980s when other songwriters encouraged him to attend the Frank Brown International Songwriter's Festival in Perdido Key, Florida. He began touring again in 1989, and by 2003 still accepted occasional engagements. Wilson remained devoted to his music, rather than to the marketplace. Wilson appears in the documentary film Heartworn Highways recorded 1975–1976, where he is filmed recording the song "Ohoopee River Bottomland". In 2008, Sony BMG released a new Wilson album, after a thirty year hiatus from recording. In 2009, Drag City re-released the album in the US. 


Wilson died, following a stroke in June 2010, at the age of 69.

Harmonica Shah - The Detroit Sessions


Harmonica Shah (born Thaddeus Hall, March 31, 1946, Oakland, California) is an American Detroit and electric blues harmonicist and singer.[1][2] His playing was influenced by Junior Wells, Jimmy Reed, Little Walter, Lazy Lester, and Little Sonny. Born in California, Shah also spent time in Somerville, Texas, with his blues harmonica and guitar playing grandfather, Sam Dawson. Dawson had recorded for both Alan Lomax and Duke Records.His mother, a beautician, encouraged him to be a salesman for Jet magazine in the latter part of the 1950s. This allowed Shah access to Oakland's bars and clubs, where he heard musicians such as Lowell Fulson, Jimmy McCracklin, Juke Boy Bonner and Big Mama Thornton.


Shah told Living Blues magazine that his grandfather's passion for the blues inspired him. "Well see I picked it up from him, he'd be out in the fields singin' all that (sings in a slow moan) 'Tell me how long, whoa, tell me how long it's been since you've been away from home' Well, that's raw! That's a big damn difference from 'Good Golly Miss Molly'". He moved to Detroit in 1967, and worked for Ford Motors for fifteen years. Shah bought himself a cheap harmonica in 1976 and, while operating as a taxicab driver, Shah was introduced to local blues jam sessions. "Hell, that was it, no turning back then", Shah recalled.


He has toured across the United States, as well as in Europe, Russia, Japan and Australia. Closer to his roots, Shah still occasionally performs for free at John's Carpet House in East Detroit. He legally changed his birth name to Seward Shah.

Buddy Miles - Direto do Baú do Dead


21 DE JUN DE 2011

Buddy Miles "Roadrunner" (rare rip)

"Please note: This image is a general representation of the album cover, but the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. If the item offered is a used, second-hand item, please note that there may be some cosmetic differences as well."

Um dos ombudsmans desta alcatéia, o irmãozinho Celso Loos me acorda um dia gritando na porta da caverna:

"Dead que porra de disco é esse que nem na discografia do cara aparece?????"

Cara, como tem maluco nessa floresta....os caras nem dormem direito e ainda não deixam os que vivem mais a noite cochilar um pouco (apesar que já passava do meio dia eu acho, afinal lobos não usam relógio) e ainda por cima encanam com uma coisa que só na cabeça doida deles tem algum significado.

Mas vai que o camarada teve um sonho ou uma visão e tal, aí tem que ver qualé prq senão vc não tem mais sossego,rs.
E nessas peguei a encomenda, um papel riscado com um nome e uma observação que depois me enviaria o link!!!!!

Ai meu saquinho, como é dura a vida de um lobo sem juízo, mas ao mesmo tempo é isso que faz o sangue pulsar dentro das veias e a abertura é só pra chamar a atenção pra mais um do Buddy considerado obscuro, raro ou sei lá o quê e até a imagem do álbum tem observação e deixei como encontrei; obscuro.....é uma palavra bem interessante pra um cara como o Buddy não acham?

Tocou com os melhores, foi um dos melhores e ainda é reverenciado no mundo todo, mas as tais majors não soltam o material do cara, não dão e não emprestam e as que vendem é a preço de ouro sem nenhuma informação ou o que quer que o valha mostrando total desrespeito pelo artista e sua obra e por isso teimoso que sou (maluco que sou diria meu irmãozinho Raul,rs) insisto e tá aí mais um do Buddy Miles que não roda por aí prq só tem aqui,aí pai do céu ficar acordado dá nisso até rima quer inventar.

Baixem com fé e logo, aproveitem como se deve e se possível espalhem com rapidez prq a alcatéia adverte: "Este som faz muito bem pra alma", valeu Celso."Did not chart

Obscure album by Buddy Miles for the Tulsa-based T. Town label, released in 1977. After the synth-heavy 'More Miles Per Gallon', and the somewhat better 'Bicentennial Gathering' for Casablanca, this LP is a breathe of fresh air: low-fi production, raw and funky. Actually has some 'meep meeps' in the mix.

More to come on this rarity...

- "Roadrunner Stomp" b/w "I Love You More and More"

Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



"Kashmir" was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.

In this age of unplugged it was inevitable that Led Zeppelin would return in some shape or form to reclaim a legacy which fused folky ...musings with harder leanings.
On NO QUARTER, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page are joined by a core group of musicians featuring the Cure's Porl Thompson, The London Metropolitan Orchestra, and a multitude of Middle Eastern musicians playing exotic instruments.

The result is a fascinating blend of Zeppelin classics and three new songs.
"Nobody's Fault But Mine" and "Friends" are given a slightly altered interpretation while the more recent "Yallah," "City Don't Cry," and "Wonderful One" revel in multicultural trappings. "Yallah" and "City Don't Cry" are both steeped in chanting in a foreign tongue while "Wonderful One" sounds like an outtake from HOUSES OF THE HOLY.

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page's world music approach casts a positive sheen on the remainder of this collection of Zeppelin songs which include exotic versions of "The Battle Of Evermore," "Gallows Pole," and "Kashmir."

Original Import pressing features a track not available on US Reissued Remastered version, 'Thank You'. The song, 'Yallah' as titled here on the original version was also renamed for the US reissues, 'The Truth Explodes'. This Import version also features the original artwork.

Tony McPhee, an Eccentric Man...


Tony McPhee was part of the first generation of young British blues disciples influenced by Cyril Davies and his band Blues Incorporated. 



Review by Bruce Eder
Now this is more like it -- Tony McPhee alone in his home studio with just his Yamaha FG180 on the first six tracks, doing whatever comes to mind. Mostly, as the title suggests, he plays some nimble slide guitar through some appropriately raspy-voiced renditions of "Reformed Man," "Mean Disposition," "Tell Me Baby," and the obviously autobiographical "Hooker & the Hogs." The other nine songs were cut solo by McPhee in concert during 1993, and he comes off even better there, his playing even more nimble and his singing far more expressive on songs like Son House's "Death Letter," Muddy Waters' "I Just Can't Be Satisfied," and Howlin' Wolf's "Down In the Bottom" and "No Place To Go," among others. The fidelity on the live stuff, cut with a Yamaha APX-6 in Vienna, is also excellent.



This is the definitive biography and discography of Tony McPhee, and the complete history of his legendary band The Groundhogs. Fully illustrated with several previously unpublished photographs, Eccentric Man is the authoritative account of one of the most important and influential British musicians of the last 50 years. A pioneer of rhythm and blues in the UK, McPhee learnt his craft in the 1960s backing major American blues artists (including John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed and Little Walter) during their British tours. McPhee was one of a small group of outstanding British guitarists that emerged during the formative years of rock music. He developed innovative and unique styles as a guitarist, but the factors that really set him apart were his technical knowledge of electronics, constant musical experimentation and groundbreaking recording and performing techniques. In the early 1970s Tony McPhee & The Groundhogs released two classic albums, Thank Christ For The Bomb and Split, that are acknowledged as milestones in the history of rock. At this time he was hailed as "the British Hendrix" and described by Sounds in 1974 as "the definitive rock guitarist". Today he is still recording and performing, and he is recognised as a major influence by numerous musicians, including Julian Cope, Captain Sensible, Karl Hyde, Stephen Malkmus, Mark E. Smith and the record producer Jack Endino.

ENJOY


UM FELIZ NATAL A TODOS

Joanne Shaw Taylor - A Blues Woman


Joanne Shaw Taylor (born 1986, England)[2] is a British blues guitarist and singer, who was discovered by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics at the age of 16. The British music publication, Blues Matters!, called Taylor "the new face of the blues".



"The Dirty Truth marks Joanne Shaw Taylor’s fourth studio release and second time working with producer Jim Gaines (the first being on her studio debut some five years ago) with the goal of tapping into some of what drove White Sugar. The record plays out like what we’ve come to expect from Taylor – a heady combination of not-quite-aggressive and not-quite-mellow – but this one sounds a little closer to home for Taylor. Her songs just sort of flow off of the record naturally, almost as though they’d always been out there somewhere and Taylor merely uncovered them and made them accessible. 


“Natural” is a good term to describe The Dirty Truth and Joanne Shaw Taylor’s aesthetic in general. Everything Taylor does seems to have a certain inertia to it, as though one idea gives way to the next, and to the next, until The Dirty Truth is over and you’re reaching for the “repeat” button. Joanne Taylor says that she didn’t initially set out to be a singer, and that she had a lot of insecurity regarding her voice to overcome. Strangely enough, the most captivating part of Joanne Shaw Taylor’s sound is her rasped, soulful, and absolutely effortless vocal delivery. She sort of croons in a lower register, and it sounds as though it’s no more effort for Taylor than simply breathing. Maybe this is a major contributor to the natural sound of The Dirty Truth.



The blues scene has had its eyes on Joanna Shaw Taylor for a few years now, and with good reason. Her blues-gone-rock brand of music is incredibly cohesive, and Taylor does casually what most artists strive for."

A Special Motown Album (1976)


In 1976, the fortunes of Motown rebounded with six releases reaching the Top 10. Three of them reached #1, including Love Hangover by Diana Ross and Love Machine by The Miracles. It's probably fair to say that Disco gave Motown a new lease of life. This album is clearly a collection of tracks Motown felt fit the bill. My favourites here are Diana Ross (Love Hangover is an Anthem!) & Eddie Kendricks but The Supremes & The Originals are also fair tunes, if somewhat dated. Thelma Houston is a fine artist but Don't Leave Me This Way has been tainted with Hi-Energy success...

A Special Motown Disco Album (1976)



01. Thelma Houston - Don't leave me this way
02. The Originals - Down to love town
03. Dynamic Superiors - Stay away
04. Jermaine Jackson - Let's be young tonight
05. Diana Ross - Love hangover
06. Eddie Kendricks - Goin' up in smoke
07. The Supremes - You're my driving wheel
08. Tata Vega - Full speed ahead

The Howard Roberts Quartet


Roberts was born in Phoenix, Arizona, and began playing guitar at the age of 8. By the time he was 15 he was playing professionally locally. In 1950 he moved to Los Angeles. There, with the assistance of Jack Marshall, he began playing with musicians including Bobby Troup, Chico Hamilton and Barney Kessel. In about 1956, Bobby Troup signed him to Verve Records as a solo artist. Around that time he decided to concentrate on recording, both as a solo artist and session musician, a direction he would continue until the early 1970s. Roberts played rhythm guitar, lead guitar, bass and mandolin, in the studio and for television and movie projects, including lead guitar on the theme from The Twilight Zone, as well as the classic guitar themes in The Munsters, Bonanza, The Brady Bunch, Green Acres, Get Smart, Batman, Beverly Hillbillies, Andy Griffith, Peter Gunn, Johnny Quest, Gidget, Mannix, Lost in Space, Dragnet, Wild Wild West, Mission Impossible, The Odd Couple, and rhythm guitar on the theme from I Dream of Jeannie.


Artists Roberts backed include Georgie Auld, Peggy Lee (Fever), Eddie Cochran (Sittin' in the Balcony), Bobby Day (Rockin Robin), Jody Reynolds (Endless Sleep), Shelley Fabares (Johnny Angel), Dean Martin (Houston), The Monkees, Roy Clark, Chet Atkins, and The Electric Prunes. In 1961, Roberts designed a signature guitar which was originally produced by Epiphone. The guitar was a modified Gibson ES-175 (Epiphone is owned by Gibson and during this period Epiphone guitars were manufactured in the same factory as Gibson guitars in Kalamazoo, Michigan), with a round sound hole and a single pickup. A redesigned version was later produced by Gibson. The Howard Roberts signature was borne by two other models made by Gibson: the Howard Roberts Custom and the Howard Roberts Fusion III. In 1963, Roberts recorded Color Him Funky and H.R. Is A Dirty Guitar Player, his first two albums after signing with Capitol. Produced by Jack Marshall, they both feature the same quartet with Roberts (guitar), Chuck Berghofer (bass), Earl Palmer (drums) and Paul Bryant alternating with Burkley Kendrix on organ. Both albums were released on a single CD under the title Dirty & Funky on Randy Bachman's label Guitarchives in 1998. In all, he recorded nine albums with Capitol before signing with ABC Records/Impulse! Records.


From the late 1960s, Roberts began to focus on teaching rather than recording. He traveled around the country giving guitar seminars, and wrote several instructional books. For some years he also wrote an acclaimed column called "Jazz Improvisation" for Guitar Player magazine. Roberts developed accelerated learning concepts and techniques, which led to the founding of Playback Music Publishing and the Guitar Institute of Technology. As a co-founder of GIT, now known as the Musicians Institute, Roberts' philosophy remains an integral part of the curriculum. Roberts died of prostate cancer in Seattle, Washington on June 28, 1992. His wife Patty, also active in musical education, continued in this field after his death. Howard inspired the opening of Roberts Music Institute in Seattle, Washington, which is currently owned by his son, Jay Roberts.
