HOODOO MAN BLUES to be repackaged with unreleased tracks!! Junior Wells’ 1965 album is getting a makeover with a new deluxe digipak look with MANY never issued vintage pictures and A NEVER BEFORE RELEASED SONG. More details next issue! On an interesting, related sad note - Jack Myers, bassist on this timeless classic recording and many others (Otis Rush, Big Walter, Charlie Musselwhite) recently passed away in Milwaukee, aged 74. I had no idea he was still around!! The blues obituary section has been very busy lately with the recent passings of piano legend Pinetop Perkins (who had just recorded in Delmark’s Riverside studio last year with Willie “Big Eyes” Smith,) Mississippi juke joint legend Big Jack Johnson, unsung Chicago guitarists/singers Lacy Gibson (Check out Delmark’s “Crying For My Baby”) & L.V. Banks; famed record men, Harlem’s Bobby Robinson and Houston’s Huey “The Crazy Cajun” Meaux; along with DJ, the doorman at Rosa’s, who helped to make it’s billing as “Chicago’s friendliest blues lounge” a true statement. TWO NEW DELMARK BLUES ALBUMS JUST RECORDED!! Sharon Lewis recorded her Delmark debut CD in our Riverside Studio on May 23 & 24. She is accompanied by Bruce James, guitar, Roosevelt Purifoy, piano, Hammond B3 organ and Fender Rhodes; Melvin Smith, bass; Tony Dale, drums. It features 5 brand new original Sharon Lewis songs and her own unique interpretations of covers like Van Morrison's "Crazy Love". A new exciting young singer/songwriter/guitarist/bandleader on the Chicago blues scene is Toronzo Cannon. He just recorded his new Delmark debut CD in Riverside Studio also with many new original songs. Both CDs will be out this year. We also want to send out our condolences to friends and family of the wildly talented jazz violinist Billy Bang who passed away too early at the age of 63. Billy recorded 4 Delmark CDs with Kahil El’ Zabar, including our very first DVD from ‘04, Live at the River East Art Center - DVD 1566) There will be a tribute to Mr. Bang at the upcoming VISION Fest 16 in NYC in June, where vibraphone star(licker) Jason Adasiewicz will be also performing in a duo with Peter Brotzmann. Demetria Taylor, the newest star singer on Chicago’s competitive blues scene celebrated her recording debut as a leader, Delmark’s Bad Girl, at B.L.U.E.S. on Halsted. The late, great Eddie Taylor, Sr.’s youngest daughter has a style rooted in the vein of KoKo Taylor, but adds her own unique brand of forward-looking blues. Special guests Billy Branch, Eddie Shaw, Big Time Sarah, and Eddie Taylor, Jr add a ton of feeling to this much anticipated new release! Also be on the look-out for CD release parties for blues/soul singer/guitarist Quintus McCormick’s new one, Put it On Me, and jazz flutist supreme Nicole Mitchell’s quartet, Awakening. Quintus’ follow-up to his hit Delmark debut, Hey Jodie, is even better- you’re gonna be blown away by his diverse songwriting and singing. We just heard the “great for her, not good for us” news that Nicole Mitchell is getting married and moving to Southern California. Congrats Nicole, we will miss you and your immense talent and your kind and generous spirit! Special upcoming Delmark related shows- Chicago Blues Fest is coming! Dave Specter’s popular club in Evanston, S.P.A.C.E is putting on 3 killer Blues Fest shows - Wed June 8th will be Dave Specter’s Adventures in Guitar with Rockin’ Johnny Burgin, two of the most tasteful guitarists ever! Opening act will be Rick Simcox & the ToneQuesters, who just recorded at Delmark’s Riverside Studio. The next night will be a triple billing of West Side Blues Guitar legends Jimmy Dawkins, Jody Williams, and Billy Flynn called BLISTERSTRING, named after the famed Dawkins’ Delmark CD from the mid ‘70’s (which also happened to be the last session recorded at the famed Chess studio). The Sat night show will be a Pinetop Perkins tribute with Howlin’ Wolf’s guitarist, Hubert Sumlin and more. Delmark performing stars at the Chicago Blues Fest are Rockin’ Johnny (with Smiley Tillman and Mary Lane,) Nora Jean Bruso (featured on the recently released Jimmy Dawkins’ Leric Story,) Willie Buck (with Gorgeous George Stancell,) Dave Specter with the ageless funky blues master Jimmy Johnson, Carl Weathersby (of Mississippi Heat), Jimmy Burns, and more!

Liner Notes for Quintus McCormick Blues Band Put It On Me! Quintus McCormick’s acclaimed Delmark debut from 2009 Hey Jodie! was one of the best soul-blues albums of the new millennium’s first decade. Put It on Me! is an apt title for this diverse collection of 14 fresh Quintus originals. Fans rightfully expect, at the least, an equivalent follow up to a successful debut. But Quintus has exceeded the promise of Hey Jodie! in every facet - singing, playing, and writing - not an easy thing to do, especially in less than two years, even for a college trained musician like Quintus who scored his first hit at age 51. With impeccably supple support by his working band - John Chorney - a keyboard star in the making - and the eloquent, elastic rhythm section of bassist Vic Jackson and drummer Jeremiah Thomas who provide the indispensable versatility for Quintus’ musical palate, Quintus put it on himself to surpass his auspicious debut. The clarity of purpose demonstrated by Quintus and his musical cohorts exudes all that is genuine in the best music: passion, poise, and panache. Except for some gospel-fueled transcendence with the gently swaying “Hallelujah” that closes the set on a note of gratitude, the album’s twin streams of inspiration are tough urban blues and silky, ebullient Windy City soul. Quintus examines the vicissitudes of modern romance from a variety of angles. On the blues side there’s the bracing irony of the hard rocking Jimmy Reed-like “You Just Using Me” (“...like I’m using you”), a blues-bump of reassurance reminiscent of Z.Z. Hill with “I Got It Babe”; more irony with the smoldering “The Blues Has Been Good to Me,” an epiphany recognizing that, in the end, all experience is positive; a jagged boogie grinder of postbreak-up confusion and emotional paralysis, “Don’t Know What to Do”; a sinewy shuffle in praise of a special lady, “Sadie”; the funky title track that extols his determination and resolve in romantic matters; and two deep slow blues: “How Quick We Forget,” evocative of Ray Charles’ “Drown in My Own Tears” but with the added touch of Quintus’ snarling, aggressive stringbending, his fiercest of the set, and a plaintive all points bulletin on a MIA Personnel: Quintus McCormick, vocals, guitar John Chorney, keyboards Vick Jackson, bass Jeremiah Thomas, drums Billy Branch, harmonica (1, 6, 8)
BLISTERSTRING! Chicago Blues Guitar Summit with Jimmy Dawkins, Jody Williams, & Billy Flynn Thurs June 9 at S.P.A.C.E. in Evanston 3 world-renowned Chicago Blues guitarists in one night. Jody Williams and Jimmy Dawkins are two of the main architects and masters of the famed, Chicago West Side sound that features that wild and eerie, minor key guitar that has influenced so many. Billy Flynn is the torchbearer of that sound and is the glue to countless blues bands today and has an encyclopedic blues mind and diverse repertoire. He has been backing Jody and Jimmy for years, and knows their unique styles like no other. Jody Williams - Jody’s impressive guitar can be heard on many ‘50’s/’60’s Chess recordings with Bo Diddley, Billy Boy Arnold, Howlin’ Wolf, including his own instrumental masterpieces, “Lucky Lou!” & “Moaning For Molasses”. Jimmy Dawkins - Dawkins has one of the most distinctive guitar sounds of all - a heavy, dark, slashing sound that is like no other. He has many influential recordings in his long career, including the killer late ‘60/early ‘70 albums on Delmark Records: Fast Fingers, All For Business (with Otis Rush,) and Blisterstring. Billy Flynn - Flynn has led his own band since the 80’s in Wisconsin and Chicago and can be found making so many bands better. He currently is the lead guitarist with countless bands, including Kim Wilson of the Fabulous Thunderbirds, the Cash Box Kings, and the Special 20’s. He was the guitarist creating the famous Chess sound in the popular recent movie on Chess Records, Cadillac Records. He can also break out a mean blues mandolin, harp, and sitar!! - Kevin Johnson
lover, “Lady Blue,” with flickering fills and jazzy chords suggestive of T-Bone Walker. The disparity in his playing on these two tracks is indicative of Quintus’ broadly evolving style. The languorous “Change” may be the album’s most powerful slow tune - a five year chronicle of inertia, ennui, and despair infused with weary vocals and trenchant licks - an engrossing dirge that has more than one possible interpretation. Before his move to Chicago in the late ’70s, Quintus lived in Detroit. Although he was initially enamored of rock, the influence of Motown had to have been pervasive while growing up in Detroit; however, Quintus’ dual muses of soul are Earth, Wind, and Fire’s infectious amalgam of funk, jazz, and adult pop (“Say Lover” and “Talk Baby”) and the bright and brassy sophisticated soul of Tyrone Davis (“Loveland” and “Same Old Feeling”). Such an expanse of styles requires a skilled vocalist and Quintus is up to the task with his distinctively fluid range that smoothly goes from a warm, sonorous croon to a cathartic wail to gritty testifying. Quintus is a beacon of hope for the future and a major player on the durable soul-blues scene which traces its origins back to the 1960s when prominent Chicago artists like Junior Wells, Magic Sam, and James Cotton added soul to their live repertoires even though in the years to come a number of notable soul-blues albums would sadly slip through the cracks. With only two albums to his credit, Quintus McCormick’s maturity, confidence, conviction, and triple-threat talent make him one of contemporary Chicago’s brightest stars. -Thomas J. Cullen III, Contributing Editor Blues Revue and Bucks County Blues Society President Chicago Horns (2, 3, 4, 7, 12) Kenny Anderson, trumpet, horn arrangements Hank Ford, tenor sax Jerry DiMuzio, baritone Steve Berry, trombone

Delmark 641 - $14.99 CD
“Dawkins and his band, featuring Jimmy Johnson on second guitar, were the epitome of the tough Chicago blues sound of the 70s. and this album catches them at their grinding best.” -Viintage Guitar Magazine “Dawkins sings with as much passion here as on any recording he ever made, and the band is as good as he ever had with plenty of space for Dawkins’ gritty, trebly guitar.” -Jazz & Blues “Blisterstring is just that. If the world were a just place, Dawkins would be a star. Instead, he remains well-respected but outside the limelight of say a Buddy Guy or Luther Allison. What makes Dawkins special is his guitar work. Dawkins is one of the grittiest blues guitarists around. His rough, raw style helped define the West Side Chicago sound. Dawkins also is a strong songwriter. Blistertring is best when Dawkins is playing originals such as “She Got the Blues Too,” “Sea of Luv” and the outstanding “Welfare Line.”...Blisterstring was the last blues recording at the Chess studios...it remains a strong testament to the studio.” -Blue Speak

Liner Notes for Demetria Taylor Bad Girl
Everything I do, I do for my mom and my dad.” Demetria Taylor is sitting at a table in Blue Chicago, the downtown club where in about an hour she and her band will be firing out her unique brand of Chicago-bred, forward-looking blues –“blues with a Millennium sound,” as she describes it– for a Wednesday night crowd. Many of the people who’ll be dancing and partying to Demetria’s music tonight probably know the Taylor name largely because of Demetria’s late father, the fabled guitarist Eddie Taylor, who helped craft the Jimmy Reed sound in the ‘50s and ‘60s and also recorded several now-classic sides of his own. And, in fact, she has recast one of her father’s songs, “Bad Boy,” in her own image, to serve as the title track for her debut CD on Delmark. But as her band sets up on the bandstand and vintage Muddy Waters begins to blast out from the house speakers, Demetria makes it clear that although she reveres the Chicago blues tradition, she is an independent-minded woman determined to forge her own sound in a field too often associated with “moldy-fig” purism. Her father and her mother, vocalist Lee Vera Taylor, groomed her to be both true to her roots and unwavering in her ambitions. “I’m out here right now because of my mom and dad,” she affirms again. “There’s never a time I get on stage when I don’t talk to God and say, ‘Well, this is for you, Mom and Dad.’

Because I feel like they’re the ones who left this legacy for all of us. My mom always told me, ‘It’s in you, but you got to find it. You got to find yourself. You can sing; you just gotta bring it out.’” “But I want to keep going,” she continues. “I want to take my father and everything else I know, and take it and do it my way. “ Her attitude is the result of growing up in an environment where music from multiple generations and genres coexisted in joyful harmony. She lent her own voice to that harmony early on. “I always have loved to sing,” she says. “I used to be a little girl running around the house: ‘We gonna pitch a Wang Dang Doodle all night long!’ I used to see [my father] on album covers and see him on videos and different stuff. I remember [blues legends] Eddie Shaw, Floyd Jones, Little Wolf, Johnny Littlejohn, Sunnyland Slim, people like that coming around the house; my father used to sit around and tell stories of when he was coming up. When he passed away [on Christmas Day, 1985] I was a little girl, but I can remember bits and pieces of things. “I was into jazz and blues: people like Koko Taylor, Bessie Smith, Big Mama Thornton, Eddie Shaw, Howlin’ Wolf, just a lot of musicians I grew up listening to. Lena Horne, Dionne Warwick sometimes, Anita Baker. And a little bit of rock – Jimi Hendrix. Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson. As I got older, I just felt like that stuff started getting tired, boring to me. I just wanted to do something different, so I started coming to the blues clubs.” By this time, Demetria’s older brothers, Tim and Larry, had established themselves as drummers on Chicago’s West Side circuit. Demetria herself played drums for quite a few years, but after being slowed down by carpal tunnel syndrome in her hands, she started to focus more on singing. Her sister Edna, who now sings gospel, also performed on occasion, and her brother Eddie Taylor Jr. was honing a guitar style modeled closely on that of his world-famous father. “Every last one of my mom’s kids can do something,” says Demetria with pride. “All my mom’s kids are very creative, and bright and smart.” Larry and Eddie Jr. have since recorded well-received CDs of their own; Tim travels the world laying down the rhythm for veteran saxophonist and ex-Howlin’ Wolf sideman Eddie Shaw. Their success has encouraged Demetria (“I wanted to do it, too, to let everybody know what I can do”); however, she also knew that she needed to affirm her own musical identity by striking a balance between roots and innovation. In that spirit, she has crafted a CD that both pays homage and serves as a declaration of independence. “Every song I’ve done,” she avers, “I’ve done it in honor of the people I was raised up on. I dedicate my first CD to all of them. I love the traditional blues. But I want to go other places with my blues. I want to do the Chicago sound, but I want to do it in my own way.” Thus she plants her stamp on tributes to Koko Taylor (“Voodoo Woman” and the anthemic “Wang Dang Doodle,” featuring a guest appearance by veteran Chicago blues chanteuse Big Time Sarah, who also weighs in on the Willie Dixon/Howlin’ Wolf perennial “Little Red Rooster”) and Magic Sam (“All Your Love”); “When You Leave, Don’t Take Nothing” (in honor of Chicago vocalist Artie “Blues Boy” White); the title song, a remake of her father’s 1955 recording “Bad Boy,” which Demetria says moved her so deeply that she cried as she recorded it; Luther Allison’s deep-blues ballad “Cherry Red Wine;” and “Big Boss Man,” originally recorded by her father’s legendary partner Jimmy Reed. The opening medley is a dual tribute to Willie Dixon and –yet again– Demetria’s idol, the late Queen Koko. But these tracks, Demetria emphasizes, are merely the beginning of her musical journey. “When I do my next CD,” she enthuses, “I want to do all originals. I want to let people know that I got different styles, I’m just not just a lump-de-lump girl, and try to develop something that people can know me for who I am. I’m here, I’m ready. I’m ready to go out there and just let the world know what I can do.” -David Whiteis, April 2011
In honor of Clean Feed’s 10-year anniversary, many of their Chicago-centric titles are on sale for $10.99 (Unless otherwise marked, thru 7/31/11)
Portugal’s Clean Feed label is celebrating their tenth anniversary this year; quite the milestone for any label, let alone one dedicated to releasing contemporary jazz. Since its inception, Clean Feed has become synonymous with quality, not only in music but in packaging, something of a rarity these days as music has become yet another disposable commodity. Like our own venerable independent jazz record label, Clean Feed can count many Chicagoans among their roster of international talent. Living legend Anthony Braxton’s Duets 1995 (CF079) finds the saxophonist in a duo with bassist Joe Fonda playing original compositions as well as some standards, showcasing Braxton's truly unique take on the tradition. Chicago institution Ken Vandermark has released two trio records on Clean Feed, Rebus (CF083) with guitarist Joe Morris and Luther Gray on drums and Triple Play (019) featuring the stellar rhythm section of Nate McBride (bass) and Curt Newton (drums). This rhythm section is reprised on Free Advice (CF098) and joined by the exceptional keyboardist Pandelis Karayorgis. In addition to known players on the modern jazz/improvised music scene, Clean Feed has the proud distinction of putting out many titles by emerging talents. The Flatlands Collective's "Maatjes" (CF127), a project of Amsterdam's Jorrit Dijkstra, features many Chicago luminaries including Jason Roebke, Frank Rosaly, James Falzone, Fred Longberg-Holm and Jeb Bishop. Bishop can also be heard on Pluto Junkyard (CF141) a collective of New Orleans and Chicago improvisers (known as the Lucky 7s), and on Lucky 7 tenorman Keefe Jackson’s debut as a leader, Seeing You See (CF176). Matt Bauder’s 2010 release A Day In Pictures (CF210) was an artistic and critical high point from a saxophonist of exceptional skill and promise. Labels like Clean Feed are an invaluable part of a thriving music community and now, perhaps more than ever, it’s essential to support independent labels as they continue to support independent music.

MAXWELL STREET MARKET t the turn of the last century, the Maxwell Street Market was not only the largest open-air market in the country, it was an immigrant gateway and economic hub for those looking to make deals and find bargains on clothing, tools, produce, cars or anything needed for everyday life. In the 1930s and 40s, the Maxwell Street Market became a mecca for country blues musicians from Mississippi being heard playing street corners by vast crowds of multi-cultural shoppers. Because the high volume of street noise made it difficult for the musician to be heard on their acoustic instruments, they started “plugging in”. The electric urban sounds combined with the deep-rooted acoustic Delta traditions helped make Maxwell Street the “Birthplace of Electric Chicago Blues”. Among those who contributed to these new amplified sounds were Little Walter, Robert Nighthawk, Blind Arvella Gray, Muddy Waters, Jimmie Rogers, Johnny Young, John Wrencher, Honeyboy Edwards, and Jimmie Lee Robinson. By the 1960s, younger musicians like harpist Paul Butterfield and guitarist Michael Bloomfield could be found playing on Maxwell Street. Butterfield and Bloomfield would later go on to form the electrifying Blues / Rock unit, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. An abundance of amazingly talented musicians came out of Maxwell Street in its heyday. Their recordings leave a rich document of one of the most exciting times in Blues history.

Gregory Lenoir Allman was born in Nashville, Tennessee on December 8th, 1947. Gregg was the youngest of two children from Willis and Geraldine Allman. In 1949 Willis became a lieutenant in the army and moved the family to Fort Story, Virginia. On a visit to Norfolk, the day after Christmas, Willis Allman was shot and killed while being robbed at gun point. Geraldine, now a widow, took young Gregg and his one year older brother Duane, and moved in with Willis’s parents in Nashville, Tennessee. Geraldine found work was hard to find, but eventually landed a job as a secretary in an auto parts shop. Geraldine realized she would need more money to raise Gregg and Duane on her own and decided to go to college to become a CPA. Using Willis’s military benefits, Geraldine went to college and sent Gregg and Duane to military school, while getting a break on tuition for the boys because their father had been killed while in the army. After graduating from college in 1957, Geraldine then moved the family to Daytona Beach, Florida. In 1959, while Gregg and Duane were staying with their grandparents in Nashville, Gregg befriended a neighbor by the name of Jimmy Banes, who happened to be playing guitar on his front porch. Gregg was enthralled by Jimmy and his guitar playing, and asked Jimmy to teach him how to play. Jimmy taught Gregg everything he knew on the instrument and that’s when Gregg got, “The Fever” as he says. Gregg, just 11 years of age, saved up enough money on a paper route to buy his first guitar, a Sears Silvertone. Gregg took a few lessons and taught himself how to play from a Mel Bay guitar handbook. It wasn’t long after this that Duane got, “The Fever” himself and wanted to play guitar as well. It was those summer visits to Nashville that Gregg and Duane began their musical journey. The boys’ grandma would take them to the Grand Ole Opry and Rhythm & Blues Revues. After Gregg and Duane took up the guitar, it was one show in particular that really stirred their souls. That show was a R&B Revue that featured Otis Redding, Patti LaBelle, Jackie Wilson and B.B.King. Soon Gregg and Duane would become infatuated by the sounds of Howlin’ Wolf, Bobby Bland and Ray Charles to name a few. In 1960 Gregg met Floyd Miles, whom was a singer in a group called, The Untils and the Houserockers. Duane also befriended Jim Shepley who also was the guitarist in the Houserockers. In 1962 Geraldine sent Gregg back to Tennessee for his sophomore year of high school, due to his love of playing music and his lack of school interest. Duane had already dropped out of high school the year before, to focus on play-
ing his guitar. Gregg then returned to Daytona Beach in 1963. By 1964, Gregg and Duane formed their own band, The Escorts. By 1965 they were calling themselves The Allman Joys and were playing all over the south. Gregg was having second thoughts about playing music and had thoughts of becoming a dentist after graduating from high school. Gregg now 18 yrs old, had a bigger problem to deal with, the draft. Duane was exempt from the draft because he was the oldest son and his father was deceased. To avoid the draft and going to Vietnam, Duane schemed up a plan for Gregg to shoot himself in the foot, thus getting a medical exempt from being drafted into the army. The evening before Gregg’s physical exam, Gregg and Duane would throw a, “Foot Shootin’ Party”. A few friends came over and Gregg had been drinking whiskey pretty heavily to get the nerve to pull the trigger. Gregg called the ambulance, shot more whiskey, and shot himself in the foot. The ambulance could be heard coming even before he pulled the trigger. The plan worked and Gregg avoided the draft. Soon after, The Allman Joys broke up and Gregg and Duane formed their new band, The Hour Glass. The Hour Glass was eventually signed to Liberty Records out of Los Angeles, California. It wasn’t long before The Hour Glass became the opening act for various bands at the Fillmore West and the Whiskey-A-Go-Go. Duane eventually became fed up with the west coast scene and he and Gregg headed back to Daytona Beach, FL. Gregg soon returned to Los Angeles to become a solo artist for Liberty Records. Duane went on to record with Wilson Pickett, Clarence Carter, John Hammond Jr. and many more R/B artist in Muscle Shoals, AL. In March of 1969, Gregg had enough of the California lifestyle and liberty Records. Gregg headed to Jacksonville, FL. at Duane’s request. Duane had been telling Gregg about his new band and wanted Gregg to be lead singer and organist. Gregg arrived in Jacksonville on March 26th and the newly formed Allman Brothers Band eventually went on to become one of the most influential bands in history. 42 years later and over 30 records to his name, Gregg has released, Low Country Blues, a twelvesong collection of Blues covers and one new song, “Just Another Rider” co-written by Warren Haynes. This CD features deep country Blues to big city style Blues songs, all sung in the richly passionate and soulful quality that Gregg is known for delivering. Highlights include Bobby Bland’s, “Blind Man,” Skip James’ “Devil got my woman” and Muddy Waters, “Cant Be Satisfied.” Allman also covers songs by Junior Wells, Magic Sam, Sleepy John Estes, B.B. King, Otis Rush and a few traditional country Blues numbers. I would argue that, Low Country Blues is the finest solo record Gregg has made to date.
QUINTUS McCORMICK BLUES BAND Put It On Me! (DELMARK CD 815) The reviews of Quintus’ first CD, Hey Jodie! (Delmark 801), were stunning. “...best studio debut of 2009 and one of the best soul-blues albums of the past decade” —Blues Revue. “McCormick possesses a rich, soulful voice and an incredible versatility on guitar. At one moment he’s laying down an edgy blues-rock intro, and the next he’s shifting into funk mode with confidence and swagger” —Living Blues. With such a great debut CD one might wonder if his second Delmark CD could be as good. It is! Fourteen new original compositions include “You Just Using Me,” “I Got It Bad,” “Say Lover,” “How Quickly We Forget,” “Don’t Know What To Do,” “Same Old Feeling,” “Change,” “The Blues Has Been Good To Me,” “Sadie,” “Lady Blue,” and “I Got It Bad.” With special guest Billy Branch.

$14 .99 each DEMETRIA TAYLOR Bad Girl (DELMARK CD 814) With Billy Branch, Eddie Shaw, Big Time Sarah, Eddie Taylor Jr., Shun Kikuta, Roosevelt Purifoy, Greg McDaniel and Pookie Styx.

Even though she just turned 38, Demetria won the B.L.U.E.S. on Halsted Blues Diva Contest 2010, has already performed three times at the Chicago Blues Festival and guested on two Eddie Taylor CDs. Eleven songs includes the rousing duet with Big Time Sarah on “Wang Dang Doodle,” “I’m A Woman/Hoochie Coochie Woman,” “All Your Love,” “Goin’ Back To Mississippi,” “When You Leave,” “Big Boss Man.” CD: 0-38153-0814-2-3

MISSISSIPPI STATE OF BLUES
H JRM PRICE
Beautiful full color!
Mississippi: State of Blues is a new coffee-table book that offers, in the words of the authors, “a commentary on the state of the blues in the state of blues.” The 107 color photos by Ken Murphy include iconic scenes such as Dockery Plantation (the home of Charley Patton) and one of the three gravesites of Robert Johnson, but as the tile suggests, most are of the contemporary Mississippi blues scene. Accompanying the photos are a long introductory essay and extensive comments on each plate by Scott Barretta, the former editor of Living Blues magazine and a writer/researcher for the Mississippi Blues Trail. The trail now includes 130 markers, including one at the south end of Chicago’s Grant Park near the former site of the Illinois Central station. For more about the Trail visit www.msbluestrail.org. “In creating the book we tried to avoid the stereotypical imagery that you often see of Mississippi, such as black and white photos of an old bluesman sitting on the porch of a ramshackle shack,” says Barretta. “You might still find that, but we wanted to show what the contemporary scene actually looks like and that it’s considerably more complicated than people imagine. “For one thing, the recent interest in blues tourism has resulted in new festivals, the Blues Trail, and the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center, which is a multi-million dollar state-of-the-art facility. “At the same time, though, the blues scene remains funky and resilient, with new venues and artists continually popping up. I think it’s easy for many people to think that the blues is ‘dying’ when older artists pass on and clubs disappear, but that’s been happening for a hundred years and the blues keeps rollin’ on.’ — Kevin Johnson

Wells Street In The ‘60s One of our customers was asking the other day about the jazz/blues scene on Wells Street in the 60’s. It got me thinking and remembering so I took a walk from Division to North avenue (south of Second City) on the street where a lot of 60’s jazz and blues history happened. The street has changed so much that the house numbers in this article may be only approximate. Hopefully they’ll help you understand the scene. Chicago author David Witter interviewed well-known blues photographer Peter Amft for an article on the evolution o Chicago’s Old Town. Of the 60s and 70s, Amft said “Old Town became a destination. I would see Janis Joplin dragging her guitar case down the street, Mama Cass on her way to Mother Blues, Mike Bloomfield and Paul Butterfield, who were from Chicago, were here. It was a bohemian atmosphere where you would see people with guitars and long hair, a place where you could fly your freak flag, a carnival that didn’t exist anywhere else.” Yes, it was a draw for folkies and beatniks, but its vibrant music scene attracted a much broader spectrum of music afficianados. The early and brief Wells Street blues scene occurred north of North.. I think the first club I remember was managed by some Roosevelt University students who were blues fans before that was hip and hired Curtis Jones to play piano. There was a licensing problem and Jones lost the gig and decided to move to Paris. That would have been about 1961. The next development: was a club at 1638 N. Wells that hadn’t done well with a “Gay 90’s” image. Bob Wetlauffer was the manager there. He had been previously tending bar at the Gate Of Horn. He featured Big Joe Williams and his 9-string blues. Charlie Musselwhite had just come to Chicago, was working at Jazz Record Mart, and would sit in with Joe on guitar. Then Mike Bloomfield started sitting in so Charlie switched to harmonica (I hadn’t known he played harp!). Paul Butterfield was the next sitter-in on harp — a band scene was developing! As he often did without notice, Joe left town suddenly and Paul was hired to put a band together at Big John’s. When Howling Wolf toured Europe with the American Folk Blues Festival in 1964, he left Sam Lay unemployed so he joined Paul’s band and, as they say, history was made. Butterfield and Co. made several trips to New York to record for Elektra. Someone told me the engineers didn’t want to mike the guitar and bass speakers so a third session was required to get the real Chicago sound. The first jazz that I noticed on Wells was Eddie Davis’ trad band with Jack “The Bear” Brown at Earl Pionke’s Old Town Gate at 1555 N. Wells. Davis’ band was on the first album recorded by Leon Kelert for his Blackbird label. Eddie’s now in charge of the Woody Allen band. You’ll see him in the movie Wild Man Blues that documented a European tour of Allen’s band. I believe Earl moved the Old Town past North Avenue across the street from Second City and switched to a folk music policy that gave the world the wonderful work of Steve Goodman and John Prine among others. In 1962, Little Brother Montgomery led a trad band at a club at 1321 N. Wells owned by Mike Pierpaoli, called The Plugged Nickel. The band included Ted Butterman, tp; Peter Nyegaard, trombone; Bob Gorden, cl; Ransom Knowling, b; Booker T. Washington, dms. The club later brought in Woody Herman for a one-nighter which was so successful they changed their policy to modern jazz. Joe Segal did Monday night sessions and probably influenced their bookings which included Coleman Hawkins, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Tony Williams and Wayne Shorter.Roy Eldridge and eventually Miles Davis, who recorded Miles Davis At The Plugged Nickel in December of 1965. The club lost its liquor license and closed in the early 70’s. Little Brother moved to a club at 1303 that encouraged its customers to beat on the tables with rubber-ended sticks they dispensed. It didn’t help the music and didn’t last long.
The Rising Moon Singers (a folk group recording for Mercury) had opened a club named after the group at 1305 N. Wells on New Years Eve in 1961. Bob Connolly was in the group, playing trad cornet. But the mob torched the place when the group declined certain management. Mother Blues was erected at the same location with a folk policy until Bob Wetlauffer was hired to run it for Lorraine Blue. Blues and Jazz were the policy then with most of the great names in blues playing there when they were in town both white and black, including Janis Joplin, Howlin’ Wolf, Otis Rush, etc. Delmark recorded J.B.Hutto there, Stompin’ At Mother Blues (778) in 1972. Richard Harding, who had occasionally hired Big Joe Williams to play at a folk club on Sedgwick just west of the Wells strip, eventually moved Poor Richard’s next door to Mother Blues where he presented, among others, Big Joe and Sleepy John Estes. Ted Butterman had a Monday night gig with Nygaard, Kim Cusack, John Cooper, p; Bob Sundstrom, bjo; Mike Walbridge, tuba; Wayne Jones, dms, This may have been the first Quiet Night, which Harding later ran very successfully next to the Belmont “L” station.. The Wells club was a cozier little place well suited to country blues. Down the street was a jive band that included Tiny Davis who’d played trumpet with the International Sweethearts of Rhythm. I never got to hear Tiny play. I think it was a problem for her to exert herself. Could that have been Holstein’s or Somebody Else’s Troubles? A small club at 1335 was still open presenting a trio. We did a photo shoot of a Delmark drummer working there. Vee-Jay Records’ Ewart Abner opened the Brown Shoe on Wells, the site of the Paul Bunyan Restaurant. Howard Bednoe and another record promoter managed it. They had learned about record company’s tour support budgets - subsidizing tours by promising rock groups. The club’s appearances could be tied in with promoting the artist’s new albums. Joe Segal started doing Monday night sessions which eventually resulted in an abandonment of the rock policy in favor of Joe booking nationally renowned jazz acts. Six months later Joe opened his first Jazz Showcase in the basement club at the Happy Medium disco on Rush Street which was owned by the Marienthal’s who also had the London House and Mr. Kelly’s, I am not sure just when Judy Roberts’ Trio played at the Midas Touch, closer to North Avenue but she was a fixture for a long time. She may have been the first jazz on the strip. (She’s coming to the Jazz Showcase in August.) As was the case with Gaslight Square in St. Louis, there is a suspicion that the police were encouraged not to cover Wells Street too well so the crime rate went up. This would benefit the mob clubs on Rush Street, wouldn’t it? Did you know that in 1968 the city of Chicago passed an ordinance closing all the parks at 11 PM. Prior to that, people used to sleep in the park all night when it got really hot in summer, those days before widespread air conditioning. The law was passed just before the Democratic Convention of 1968. Some protesting kids camped out in Lincoln Park east of the Wells strip. I was on my way to a special Monday night concert at Mother Blues — the return of veteran trombonist Preston Jackson’s to the trad scene. I got caught up in the police rampage. Instead of dispersing the kids down wide LaSalle Street or Clark Street which were closer to the park, they penned them up on Wells, ran them up and down the street. Billy
clubs flailed against buildings if anyone tried to escape between the houses. We were herded along and visciously beaten from behind. As I crossed LaSalle to a volunteers’ medic station, a nurse’s face turned white. She bound me up then told me blood had been spurting out of the top of my head. At the hospital I got 6 stitches. I now feel bad about the nice old cop who, as an apology, offered me a ride to my apartment. “I’m not getting into any policeman’s car tonight!” I’ll never forget the look of relief on the police investigator’s face when I told him I didn’t have the badge number of the cop who hit me (from behind). But I think it was an occasional JRM customer whom I had spotted in the ranks earlier — anyway the guy never came back to the Jazz Record Mart. And that was about the beginning of the end of Wells Street as a blues and jazz scene. Toward the end of my recent walk, as I approached North I noticed Zanie’s Comedy Club still in business. It’s the last cultural institution other than Second City (north of North) left on Wells. They helped give birth to Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Richard Lewis, and many others. The next day I read the obit of Zanie’s owner, Rich Uchwat, have resolved to go to Zanie’s more often. In Chicago, City Hall is notorious for opposing music bars. It took more than a year for one jazz spot to get a license (the owner ran it as a coffee house temporarily.) Let’s hope our new mayor Rham Emanuel will make this one of his many changes. Thanks to Bob Connolly, Wayne Jones, Joe Segal, the JRM staff, Carol van Tine, Susan Koester, Dave Witter, Ted Butterman, Plugged Nickel and other web-sites, and all the people I called trying to locate Peter Amft.

Congratulations to Alligator Records On Their 40th Bruce Iglauer is celebrating the 40th year of his Alligator label. He’s got a lot to be proud of and I am proud to mention that he once worked at the Jazz Record Mart and Delmark Records. I think it was before Alligator that he did a lot of work getting Living Blues magazine started; he was one of the founding members and I am sure his enthusiasm helped the others put together the first American blues mag. He was blown away, as many were, by Hound Dog Taylor’s playing and singing and tried to get me to record him. Delmark was involved in some other projects and I just couldn’t fit it in so Bruce started his Alligator label. He continued with Delmark, often getting his work done in time to take off early on Friday to go on the road with Hound Dog. He was a master at publicity and promotion and it wasn’t long before he was very successfullly on his own. Now Alligator has a deep catalog of blues and soul music and a staff much larger than we have here at Delmark. How does he manage to keep Alligator going without a record shop to pick up the tab for the label? Congratulations, Bruce and best wished for the next 40 years! - Bob Koester
Want to Learn About Historic Chicago Blues & Jazz? Get on the Bus. Chicago Detours to depart from Jazz Record Mart every Saturday from June 11 through September 10. Chicago has been needing a tour to show off its incredible music history, and Chicago Detours has done exactly that. On June 11th, coinciding with Blues Festival, the interactive tour company is launching “Our Chicago Sound: Jazz, Blues & Beyond,” an exploration of the cultural history of Chicago music. The bus has video screens and a great speaker system for experiencing the actual music, and goes from Uptown to Bronzeville. The tour company advises that it is an “active tour,” because they do get off the bus for a brief walk around Uptown, and they go into the former Sunset Cafe/Grand Terrace, now Meyer Hardware, a landmark for Chicago jazz. Chicago Detours appears to have put an enormous amount of research into the tour, having interviewed various members of the music community as well as having dug through archives to come up with stories and information that you don't find on a typical tour. It’s not a checklist of spots and names from music history.
The guide instead goes indepth into concepts of music history and how music has been a catalyst to both separate groups of people throughout Chicago history, as well as bring them together. This is the sort of tour experience that is both fun and entertaining, meaningful and thoughtprovoking. Jazz Record Mart serves as the meeting and end point for the tour (27 E. Illinois Street) Private groups can also reserve the tour. Reservations for pub- Chicago Detours offers an interactive, educational approach to the tour. lic tours can be made by phone (312.350.1131) or online (chicagodetours.com). engaging commentary, and valuable extras.

A Look At Big Bill Broonzy On the occasion of the release of I Feel So Good: The Life & Times of Big Bill Broonzy by Bob Riesman ($27.50), Bob Koester shares his thoughts on Broonzy, the early blues recording business and the new book. Big Bill Broonzy was the central figure of blues in the late 30’s and early 40’s. His singing and guitar playing were but a part of his talent. I think of him primarily as a composer. “Key To The Highway” alone would place him in the Blues Hall of Fame. But there were hundreds of other tunes. Add to the tunes credited to Broonzy the other tunes credited to Jazz Gillum and Washboard Sam. Both of these excellent artists told me that he literally gave them nearly all the songs they recorded. (Bill took back “Key To The Highway” when he finally recorded it himself. The first thing I learned from the book was that Lester Melrose perhaps used a pianist on almost every session after 1935 because LeRoy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell’s partnership had been so successful. I buy that idea and am embarrassed that I didn’t think of it. To understand blues recording in Chicago in the late 30’s you have to recognize two guys: J.Mayo “Ink” Williams who worked for Decca as A&R man for black talent. He didn’t get to publish the songs because Decca had their own publishing house, which eventually acquired the holdings of the Melrose brothers. But he did encourage artists to record tunes he already had pub rights from his connections to Paramount, Black Patti and Vocallion prior to his stay at Decca. (One of these was Kokomo Blues aka Sweet Home Chicago.) The book has info on Mayo that I had not seen before. The other guy worked with the other two labels: RCA’s Bluebird And Brunswick’s Vocallion (later Columbia’s Okeh). Lester Melrose was the younger brother of Walter Melrose and the brothers had promoted most of the Chicago recordings of New Orleans jazz men in the 20’s : Jelly Roll Morton, New Orleans Rhythm Kings, Tiny Parham, King Oliver, Johnny Dodds, even Louis Armstrong’s early Okeh classics. A third brother, Frank Melrose (ahem, Delmark #245) played such great piano that he was thought to be a pseudonym for Jelly Roll Morton. Frank went along for the 1930 trips to record for ARC and should be considered as a possible accompanist along with Thomas Dorsey. The brothers split and Walter published college songs while Lester got into blues. Lester functioned as an unpaid talent scout. He found artists (probably with a lot of help from Broonzy), rehearsed them, usually at Tampa Red’s house; and was in the studio for the record dates. He wrote out the lead-sheets for bluesmen who couldn’t read or write music . I am quoted in the book as saying he earned his lion’s share of the royalties from the labels for each song on each pressing. Sheet music wasn’t the profit element in the blues biz that it was in pop or C&W. By the way, I am amazed that Broonzy’s deal was for only 25%. The other artists, and contracts I have seen almost always placed the author’s share at a third not a fourth. The only exception I know of is Arthur Crudup, whose estate ventually got a c.$100,00 settlement from Elvis’s use of some of his songs. Memphis Slim told me that Bill Broonzy was “the biggest liar” in blues history. In the earliest chapters the author faces this, discovering that Broonzy lied about his birth-date/place and even his name! I guess he’s right that it’s simply his story-telling syle. One of Bill’s lies, in his book, Big Bill’s Blues, with Yasnnick Bruygnoe was that he first heard a very old Sleepy John Estes when he worked a track-laying gang in his youth. Three problems: Broonzy never worked and Estes never sang on a track-laying gang, and Estes was approximately Bill’s age. This kept me from believing Big Joe Williams’ story that Estes was still living in Brownsville, TN. The book shows Broonzy and Melrose working with the indie labels: Paramount, Gennett and ARC (Banner, Melotone Perfect,etc.) in the 20’s and early 30’s, not approaching the majors until they developed their 35-cent Bluebird and Vocallion/Okeh brands. Broonzy, Melrose and the labels were an overnight success as the record business returned to normal, partly due to the popularity of juke boxes after the depths of the depression and, the book points out, the end of prohibition.
I am gratified that the author gives space to one of my favorite blues sessions: the State Street Boys. With Broonzy on violin and guitar, early Jazz Gillum, etc. followed by the State Street Swingers sessions which often featured Hamfats’ trumpeter Herb Morand. People who listen mainly to the blues accompaniment have accused Melrose’s productions of a sameness I never worried about that because to me the blues is about the poetry and the singing and good lyrics and good singing was where it was at. The accompanists worked well together so why should Melrose mess with something that works? I have always been anxious to hear more of that dependable sameness. I hadn’t made the connection that the author did between Melrose’s use of wind instruments on his records with the success of the Harlem Hamfats on Decca. (In spite of their name, this was Chicago’s first blues band: guys from New Orleans, Memphis and just out of high school in Chicago). The author later points out the connection between the Hamfats Weed Smoker’s Dream and Lil Green and Peggy Lee’s hit Why Don’t You Do Right? Riesman speaks of young white guitarist George Barnes r e p l a c i n g Broonzy for some sessions in Aurora in 1938. That was the year the union’s black local organized blues recording. There was also a local recording ban (Petrillo wasn’t yet head of the whole MU, only locally.) So some musicians got Aurora cards and recorded outside the Chicago local’s jurisdiction in Aurora. I always thought maybe Bill was allowed in the union but forbidden to record for some time, but perhaps he was replaced simply because he wasn’t yet in the union. This ban marked the end of Chicago as the secondary recording location, replaced by Los Angeles. I gotta tell how Ransom Knowling and Melrose got acquainted. Melrose put Ransom’s name on a recording contract when he used a non-union bassist which caused Ransom to be dunned for dues on the payment. He hit on Melrose who auditioned him and then used him on virtually every date he did until he retired c.1950. By the way, the white local organized C&W recording after the black local did their work o the blues. So C&W recording went on the road to Memphis, Dallas, San Antonio, etc. and never really returned to Chicago. I was surprised that the author didn’t poke a little fun at John Hammond when he introduced Bill at the famous Carnegie Hall concert “wearing his first pair of store-bought shoes”. Bill came to Chicago c.1920. There is extensive coverage of Bill’s touring Europe in the early 50’s. I was surprised that Horst Lippman was involved, handling the German concerts. He later started the wonderful American Folk-Blues Festival tours of all of Europe beginning in 1963, vastly expanding interest in the blues throughout Europe. Bill’s folk concerts, sponsored by People’s Music in Chicago and promoted by Rae Flerlage, who was later well-known for his blues and jazz photography, his appearances at the Blue Note with Studs Terkal et al in the Monday night series I Come For To Sing which led to the founding of the Old Town School of Folk Music (which now occupies a large ex-library building in our neighborhood and is building an evenlarger additional building across the street. I guess Bill felt Melrose had exploited him badly for it is notable that he rarely recorded his old Melrose-published compositions during his LP-era discography. His Mercury deal, after parting ways with Melrose, involved a 10” LP of folk songs, but I was much more appreciative of the now-rare 12” LP on the last Emarcy record (quickly deleted with the rest of their 36000 series.) collecting the other sides he made for the R&B market. I never met Big Bill or heard him live. I wish I had moved to Chicago in 1957 instead of 1958 so I might have. Conversations with Ransom Knowling, other accompanists and fellow Melrose artists were casual. I wish they weren’t. But there’s more info on Big Bill, the Chicago blues scene, the folk scene,etc. than I could digest in the time I had before deadline. I admit to scanning but I will be totally digesting this must have book for anyone interested in the blues! - Bob Koester
Yes, There Are Still Live Blues on the South & West Side! and prowlin’ on Saturday nights, captured in the award winning Delmark DVD, Live at Rooster’s with Jimmy Dawkins & Rockin’ Johnny. We also can’t forget the famous Wallace’s Catfish Corner (2800 W. Madison), which usually has live blues on the weekends in the summer, featuring harpman, Cyrus Hayes and Lady Lee. Then there is GENO’S PLAYMATE LOUNGE (4239 W. Cermak) with live blues every Sunday night with Willie White or Shorty & the Magnificent R&B Band with June (J.M.) on guitar as the house bands, with many special guests like Otis Clay, Garland Green, Cicero Blake, Pat Smillie, Willie Buck, JoAnne Graham, Little Bobby Reynolds, Merv Murphy, Willie D, and more. This is the club where the much missed singer/barber Jesse Fortune died on stage a few years ago, in action, singing his heart out to his beloved fans! Two of the most underrated Chicago blues guitarists/singers around, Smilin’ Bobby and Elmore James, Jr alternate Sundays at the BIG O LOUNGE (5339 S. Halsted) and the KEYNOTE LOUNGE (1116 W. 63rd St) and the recently back on the scene wild guitar man Smiley Tillman has been playing all over town (often in Beverly at the End Zone Tap (10036 S. Western) and has been quite the talk of the Chicago blues world this past year, playing often with Rockin’ Johnny on 2nd guitar. The HOT CITY COCKTAIL LOUNGE is a place I had never heard of, but they have a website (hotcitylounge.com, 7432 S. Racine) and feature live soul/blues from Jo Jo Murray & the Top Flight Band, Shorty Mack, and more! In the Hyde Park/University of Chicago area, JIMMY’S WOODLAWN TAP (1172 E. 55th) has been the home for a great traditional Chicago blues jam on late Sunday afternoons with standout singer Willie Buck with Scott Dirks, Willie Greeson, Justin O’Brien, and Dave Waldman. Drummer/photographer Robert Pasenko (www.pasenko.com) has been holding down a great Thurs “Hot Dog” night jam at CATCHER’S INN (901 W. 35th near Sox Park) with many special guests like Chuck Crane, Floyd Wilson, Bobby Too Tuff, Felix Reyes, Sammy Fender, Toronzo Cannon, Ramblin’ Rose, Jeff Taylor, L.V. Banks, and more! Full disclosure: I don’t make it out to these clubs too often anymore (and some never!), even though I would love to! And by no means is this a complete list, and I would love to hear from folks about a special blues scene happening that you would love to share with us! You can contact me at Delmark Records anytime! - Kevin Johnson
Although the most popular Chicago Blues Clubs are predominantly tourist-driven North side clubs, like Buddy Guy’s Legends, Rosa’s, Blue Chicago, Kingston Mines, B.L.U.E.S., Nick’s, Shaw’s, etc., there are still some real deal taverns/clubs/halls on mostly the west and south side of Chicago that still feature live blues, mostly catering to the local neighborhood African-Americans. Yes, these authentic “blues lounges” have dwindled away to only a handful compared to what there used to be, and they are also often hard to find and hear about, not usually listed in local papers, websites, ads...even in this day of easier mass communication via the web and social media! Even the local free paper, the Chicago Reader, hardly has any Chicago blues listings these days (I have some Readers from the mid ‘70’s that are 3 pages full of blues clubs! ) Most devoted blues fans have known about two longtime-running “blues oases” on the south side: LEE’S UNLEADED BLUES and Artis’ Lounge. Lee’s Unleaded’s (7401 S. Chicago) long time owner, Stanley “Sarge” Davis recently passed away, but you can still find blues there every week (since the ‘70’s: used to be the Queen Bee Lounge!), including standout regular performers like guitarist Tre’ (L.V. Banks’ son) and the Blue Knights, and the house band, the Mighty World Band, led by guitarist Sir Walter Scott (of the famous Scott family, with brother, soul singer Howard Scott), and other soul/blues singers like Delores Scott, Shorty Mack, Super Percy, Sherman “Moody” Thomas, Grandmaster, Lady Kat, Mz. Peachez. Not to mention the always colorful characters sitting in, like the late Arkansas Bellyroller!. Keytarist/harpist, and popular singer Johnny Drummer & the Starliters were the house band for around 15 years. Remarkably, Billy Branch & the Sons of Blues have been playing every Monday night at ARTIS’ LOUNGE (1249 E. 87th) for over 25 years! That has to be some type of record for longest standing regular gigs in Chicago. Another long time running club is Linda’s Lounge (1044 W. 51st) where you can catch Fantastic L-Roy and the Bulletproof Band. A recent popular blues club has been the WATER HOLE LOUNGE (1400 S. Western), where the fantastic singer Mary Lane and her daughter Lynn Lane throw down traditional blues every Friday, usually with Rockin’ Johnny’s guitar and the legendary drummer/blues historian Twist Turner. Bobby “Slim” James also performs there regularly. Rooster’s Palace (4501 W. Madison) sometimes has blues, and was the ghetto club where world-renowned singer Tail Dragger was found howlin’

These seven (soon to be eight) Classic Blues Songs from the 1920s CDs contain some of the best—and hardest to find—pre-war blues songs ever recorded. 9 .9 Reg. $9 In addition, these tracks were remastered from the finest known copies of each of the original 78 rpm records. The CDs were originally packaged with the “Classic Blues Artwork From The 1920s Calendars,” which reproduced the artwork promoting these songs when they were first released. The songs coincide with artwork from the 1920s which promoted them. On the inside booklet you’ll find miniature reproductions of each of the original ads. They are all part of a massive find of original 1920s Blues artwork, much of which had never been seen before. Each CD contains 15-18 songs and are ON SALE!

"Specter crosses the line between modern blues and vintage jazz of the '40s, 50s, and '60s, returning to a musical philosophy in which the two idioms stood across from each other on quite a narrow street." - Neil Tesser
Jimmy Burns...will be at the Miss. Juke Joint Sunday at 2:00 pm Jimmy Burns, born in 1943 on the Hilliard cotton plantation near the Delta town of Dublin, Mississippi, embodies that increasingly rare combination of blues roots deep enough to tap into ‘the real thing’, while still possessing the youth and vitality to present his music with plenty of life and real excitement. He honed his vocal skills singing with vocal groups in the ’50s, and over the years has perfected an appealingly melodic, vocal-inflected contemporary guitar style to complement the down-home picking he’d leanred in his youth. -Scott Dirks, from his liner notes for Leaving Here Walking
will be at Front Porch Friday at 4:15 pm
“Young guitar whizzes abound, but Johnny Burgin is one of the few who has truly found his own voice.” -Blues Access “To call Rockin' Johnny Burgin's approach to blues ‘traditionalist’ is to do him a disservice. True, his main influence is postwar Chicago blues, but Bugin isn't setting out to preserve another man's music. Instead he and his tight ensemble build upon their mastery of the nuances of this style, using it as a springboard for further explorations.” -Blues Revue
Petrillo Music Shell Sunday at 7:30pm
Born Lee Baker, Jr. in Dubuisson, Louisiana in 1933, Lonnie began his career playing everything from rock ‘n roll to Country & Western in some of Chicago’s toughest clubs...His big break came in 1978, when Brooks introduced 4 songs on Alligator Records’ Living Chicago Blues anthology. By then he had forged his own sound - a vibrant mix of rock ‘n toll, R&B, funky Cajun boogie, country twang & hard Chicago blues.

ITALIAN IMPORT LPs FROM MONK RECORDS. For vintage blues, you can’t go wrong with these beautiful 180g vinyl issues. CHARLEY PATTON, You're Gonna Need Somebody When You’re Dead (MONK 300)
BLIND LEMON JEFFERSON, I Want To Be Like Jesus In My Heart (MONK 312)
Featuring Patton’s recordings from 1929 to 1934 all in one set. Includes 6 postcards, a poster and a booklet. Contains the 3 different volumes of the Electrically Recorded trilogy (Prayer Of Death, High Water Everywhere and Jesus Is A Dying-Bed Maker) plus a forth LP available only in this box.
CHARLEY PATTON, Electrically Recorded: Prayer of Death (MONK 304) LP $23.99 It was not only Patton’s mastery of the guitar and incredible vocal style that gained him popularity. His rock star-style showmanship and stage antics, made him the idol of music fans everywhere he played.
The epitome of a sort of “dark” blues, Henry “Blind Lemon” Jefferson lived a mere 35 years, during which time he became the quintessential bluesman, conjuring a personal mix of rural and urban blues, decrying the conditions of the sharecroppers and city slum dwellers alike. He actually got his start playing in brothels and barber shops, where he developed his theatrical vocal lament. Unfortunately this early genius of the blues allegedly met his premature demise by freezing to death in 1929 in Chicago.
FURRY LEWIS, I Will Make Your Money Green (MONK 321) 2LP $32.99
CHARLEY PATTON, Electrically Recorded: Jesus is A Dying Bed Maker (MONK 308) LP $23.99 12 more tunes from Patton’s 1929 recording sessions. Here he performs some of his finest spiritual blues, like the title track. One the most seminal blues artists of all time, this collection helps keep the legend alive.
CHARLEY PATTON, Electrically Recorded: High Water Everywhere LP This compilation features the two-part “High Water Everywhere,” and “Devil Sent The Rain Blues,” making this second episode of Monk’s retrospective on Patton another must have.
CHARLEY PATTON, Electrically Recorded: Moon Going Down $23.99 (MONK 311) The tracks found here feature another giant of the Delta blues: Willie Brown. Although Brown was an accomplished vocalist and his guitar player was second to none, he was perhaps known as a sideman, accompanying Robert Johnson, Son House and, as heard here, Charley Patton.
BLIND WILLIE MCTELL, Scarey Day Blues (MONK 309) 2LP $32.99
Despite his blindness, McTell was a talented musician since early childhood. He is credited with having created an entire blues sub genre by mixing the hard roots of the Delta style with the more refined East Coast style (Piedmont Blues).
BLIND WILLIE MCTELL, Searching The Desert for the Blues (MONK 335) 2LP $32.99 This 32-track collection of rare sides-originally released on Okeh (as Georgia Bill), Victor (as Hot Shot Willie) and Vocalion (as Blind Willie) finds McTell playing alongside another amazing Georgia blues guitarist, Curley Weaver, and backing two fine Atlanta blues singers Ruth (Mary) Willis and Ruby Glaze.
Furry Lewis began his recording career in 1927 (his first session is found here) and his prowess on his instrument, along with his natural flair for storytelling, immediately set him apart from so many other struggling young bluesmen. These sides represent his best material, recorded at the end of the roaring twenties, when Lewis was a young man at the heighth of his abilities.
BLIND BLAKE, That WIll Happen No More (MONK 331) LP $21.99
After their success with Blind Lemon Jefferson, Chicago's Paramount was scouting for more male blues talent, and they found it in 1926 in a man called Blind Blake (1893-1933), a sophisticated guitar player who was the antithesis of Delta blues. No one had fingers as fast as Blind Blake. These recordings taken from 1927-28 are a collection of Blind Blake’s early material, showcasing the man at his musical peak.
SON HOUSE AND OTHER GREAT DELTA BLUES SINGERS (MONK 328) 2LP $32.99 This 24-track collection of historic Delta blues recordings kick off with Son House’s earliest recorded material. They include the original rare versions of “Walkin’ Blues” (later made famous by Robert Johnson) and “Death Letter Blues” (here called “My Black Mama Part II”). The remaining 17 tracks on this album are a chance for listeners to hear some lesser known Delta bluesmen, all contemporaries of Son House.
MISSISSIPPI SHEIKS, Sitting on Top of the World (MONK 315) LP $23.99
Formed in 1930 as a trio of guitar and fiddle music, the original lineup was composed of Lonnie, Sam and Armenter Chatmon, the latter best known as Bo Carter, who was also a solo star of the period. Their first single, “Sittin’ On Top of The World,” was their biggest success. It went on to become a standard country blues song covered by many artists of the caliber of Harry Belafonte, Bob Dylan and Cream.
FRANK STOKES, Downtown Blues (MONK 316) LP $23.99
This African American singer and guitar player got his start playing on the streets of Memphis around the turn of the century. His enormous repertoire of early folk, blues, old time country and popular music, along with his influence on local musicians has made many point to him as the true father of Memphis blues. Stokes recorded a number of sides for Paramount and Victor until his old time style began to lose popularity with the recordbuying public.
BESSIE SMITH Them’s Graveyard Words (MONK 333) LP $21.99
BLIND BLAKE, Back Biting Bee Blues (MONK 313) LP $23.99
Blind Blake may have lived a short time, but his contributions were monumental. His astonishingly odd style made his riffs sound like a ragtime piano and his particular finger picking inspired many modern blues artists.
TOMMY JOHNSON, Cool Drink of Water Blues (MONK 320) 2LP $32.99
Tommy Johnson was one of the great early talents of the Delta Blues style. Recorded in Memphis and Wisconsin in 1928 and 1929, these 17 tracks represent Johnson's complete recorded works from those two years, and capture Johnson in his prime. There is also some lesser known material included here like, "Ridin Horse" and "Alcohol and Jake Blues", taken from what is believed to be the only remaining copy of the original 78!
Bessie Smith was the greatest of all prewar blues singers, and perhaps the greatest female blues singer of all time, as these meticulously restored sides from the very apex of her career in 1927 so divinely prove. In her short lifetime (she died in a car accident at age 42), she made close to 200 recordings, teaming up with just about every talented black musician of her day, including Clarence Williams, Charlie Green, Joe Smith, James P. Johnson, Louis Armstrong and Fletcher Henderson, to name just a few. The "Empress of the Blues" fought her way to the top of the recording industry to become the biggest selling and highest paid black recording artist of the roaring twenties. These recordings all made in New York City in 1927 include her best known sides, including "Back Water Blues", "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out,” and "After You’ve Gone".

“As blues artists go J.B. Hutto is definitely hardcore with an uncompromising guitar style born out of Elmore James, transformed into an edgy cutting bottleneck tone that formed the basis of a distinctive driving style of blues and found an outlet in the Chicago blues clubs in the ’50s and ’60s.” — Keith Fitton, Rock ‘n’ Reel

"The funky and often soul-drenched flavor of Johnson's music is always crisply new; and his 'nuff-said guitar action, though of West Side origin, is uniquely Jimmy Johnson... His raw, musical honesty, voracious licks, soothing runs, and keenly-tuned vocals attest to the high standards of Jimmy Johnson's blues. This is one of his best!" —Mark A. Cole, Big City Blues

“The great Milton Campbell always renders the stylistic dividing line between blues and soul irrelevant.
