Johnny Sansone is a bit of a jack of all trades: writing, singing, and playing masterful accordion, harmonica, and guitar. All of these tunes are originals, a similarly wide-ranging mix of Louisiana roots-rock, zydeco, and traditional blues. He enlisted some top-drawer New Orleans musicians for Watermelon Patch, including saxophonists from the Iguanas, organist Joe Krown (Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown), and pianist Jon Cleary (B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal); meanwhile, the rhythm section of bassist Dave Ranson and drummer Kenneth Blevins drove John Hiatt's Slow Turning album. Most of this release was cut live, in only one day. "Think of Me" is a rapid-fire, accordion-fueled zydeco tune with a nice guitar solo from Rick Olivarez. The title cut features some bluesy harp. "Look at Us Now" and "Loveline" showcase some nice horn playing, especially the accents from trumpet man Duke Heitger. Sansone pulls out the chromatic harp on "Pig's Feet & Tailmeat," "Stinkbait" and "Quagmire," the latter centered on a Latin-flavored jungle drum beat. "Stink Bait" is a tough, slow instrumental. "Civilized City" is pure twelve-bar Chicago blues, and "Comin' for Sure" is another zydeco-flavored track, but this time Olivarez takes to the slide guitar. Sansone is originally from New Jersey and didn't settle in New Orleans until 1989, but you'd never know it from listening to Watermelon Patch. He clearly has found his geographical and musical home.

If you've seen us before then you will know that we are all about live rapturous Chicago style rhythm & blues. If you are new to the band, then allow me to explain.... The Stumble are a six piece band based in and around Preston in the North-West and what you get is a classic valve driven back line driven with shuffle and roll. Influences range from B.B. King, Freddy King, Muddy Waters, Maceo Parker, The Allman Brother's Band, Booker T, King Curtis etc. Basically, if music has that screwed down ambient live feel expressed by some of these guys, then it'll get on our turntable. Our debut album '?The World is Tough' came out in 2006 via cdbaby and received rave reviews throughout the UK blues communities and further afield.We have been doing a serious schedule of UK appearances since then, with sell out gigs at blues clubs, independent venues and some great festival appearances across the country and in Ireland. The second album '?The Houngan' released November 2008, paints a more diverse musical canvas than the previous album. This was recorded and mixed at Restrike Studios in Manchester during July 08 predominantly live onto tape to capture the warmth and ambience of the band's live performance. 'Houngan' is an attempt at a more polished studio album, but one in which the band's live edge and the warmth and ambience of a valve back line was assured. The album is designed to be as diverse, in terms of tones and tempos, as possible.

Joshua Gilmore (born July 6, 1944), better known as Joey, is an American electric blues and soul blues singer, songwriter, and guitarist. He has shared the stage with James Brown, Etta James, Bobby Bland, Little Milton, and Little Johnny Taylor among others. Gilmore's best known tracks include "Blues All Over You". Gilmore was born in Ocala, Florida, United States. Self-taught on the guitar at an early age, from watching a local minister-cum-barber playing his own flat-bodied guitar, Gilmore initially headed a band of youths who appeared in local clubs long before they were legally able to enter such establishments.
In the 1960s, Gilmore relocated to South Florida, and he became a popular local attraction which led to him accompanying many touring blues, R&B and soul musicians. He recorded a small number of tracks in the 1970s, including his debut single "Somebody Done Took My Baby And Gone" / "Do It To Me One More Time" (1971). He released several EPs at that time, as well as the Joey Gilmore album (1977), which was re-released in 2012. His next album was So Good to be Bad (1989), released by Pandisc Records. The album reached number 80 on the US Billboard R&B album chart. It took until the mid 1990s before Gilmore began recording more frequently, and he appeared at numerous blues, jazz and soul festivals which included dates in Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Mississippi Valley, Montreux, Riverwalk, and in Taiwan. In 2012 he played at the Daytona Blues Festival. In 2006, Gilmore and his backing band took part in the Blues Foundation's International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee, where he won the 'Best Band' section.Amongst Gilmore’s sidemen in the mid-2000s were Regi Oliver (saxophone/keyboard), George Caldwell (bass) and Dave Wooten (drums).In 2008, Gilmore was awarded a Blewzzy Award for the 'best song', "Blues All Over You". In the same year he released Bluesman, on Emancipation Media, and appeared at the Poconos Blues Festival.[9] In 2009, Gilmore performed at the Taichung Jazz Festival, and the Briggs Farm Blues Festival. In 2013, Gilmore undertook various functions backed by the Sean Carney Band.In 2015, Gilmore was honored with a Latin World Talent Lifetime Achievement Award. He continues to regularly play throughout his native Florida, including an appearance at the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival, and beyond. His latest album, Brandon's Blues, was self released by Gilmore in 2015.

Joey Gilmore is a powerful guitarist and a full-voiced singer who for years played behind various blues and soul legends including William Bell, Little Milton, Latimore, and Tyrone Davis. His was the “go to” backing-band for many of the top musicians who would tour a one-time hot music scene in South Florida. From this home base, he also fronted the band, playing gigs in the area. Over the years, he’s quietly made a living at music while honing his skills. The national acts knew who he was, as did local fans, but this “hometown” arrangement meant that he never developed much of a national reputation.

Retour aux racines pour le nouvel album de Guy Verlinde (ex Lightnin’ Guy) considere comme l’artiste blues majeur en Belgique (et en passe de le devenir au Benelux). Ce nouvel opus degage une energie positive qui est l’un des points forts de cet artiste atypique capable de flirter avec l’Americana (voire la country) comme de briller en s’appuyant sur les fondamentaux du genre. Guy commence a tourner regulierement en France et n’a pas fini de faire parler de lui.

Jim Vegas’ forthcoming album “Rock N Roll Ain’t Cheap” (Goonzy Magoo Records) highlights his artful songwriting, guitar playing, and ability to convey deep emotional experiences, which have made him a favorite of many Midwest music fans.
Vegas, currently residing in Kansas (long time fans remember his days in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Denver) describes the 12-song set as “modern blues and jazz based songs with an emphasis on strong lyrical content” — his discography, includes two previous albums under his own name and one with former Los Angeles based band Budhi Brown.
“Rock N Roll Ain’t Cheap”, which follows last years “The Bullfight is in our Heads”, explores Vegas’ sophisticated writing and playing style, creating a new chapter in his musical catalogue. The album features special guests: H2 Quartet’s sax man Geoffrey Deibel, and Carter Green (From the Cajun Band The Mudbugs) who also engineered the album.
Although Vegas’ releases always reflect his musical roots — which go back to his discovery of blues as a child – “Rock N Roll Ain’t Cheap” is somewhat of a departure. Using tradition as a springboard instead of a crutch, he incorporates his version of jazz, pop, blues, rock, funk and soul onto a canvas for his poetic lyrics and emotionally charged vocals.
All of the music and the lyrics on “Rock N Roll Ain’t Cheap” come directly from Vegas, who also gives a nod to New Orleans and Bo Diddley inspired rhythms on tracks like “Nashville Heart”, classic Funk on “Waiting For Something to Come”, and even gospel on “The Mirror & Me.”
The Engineer captured Vegas’ slightly overdriven Sheraton guitar tones, which run through a Fender Princeton Reverb and Swart Atomic Tube Tone amp simultaneously.
Vegas who believes songwriting is a craft, says, “If you work every day at something you’re going to get better. I think my writing on this album contains some of the best songs I’ve ever created.”

10. Kiss - 4:27
11. Eternity - 4:19
12. Get It While You Can - 3:49

Having been left for dead -- quite literally -- Howard Tate and his return to the music world made for one of the more remarkable and most unexpected stories of 2001. With Rediscovered, his first new studio album in nearly 30 years, Tate makes the comeback complete. While Rediscovered makes for a perfectly fitting (if perfectly obvious) title, it works on another level: the album reunites Tate not only with the music world, but also with his key writer and producer, Jerry Ragovoy. Ragovoy, who had long been particularly sympathetic to Tate's style and taste in material, produced this set and wrote or co-wrote 11 of its 12 tracks, adding his touch on piano to most of them as well. The recaptured combination is at its most magical on the ballads "Sorry Wrong Number," "Don't Compromise Yourself," and the Elvis Costello collaboration "Either Side of the Same Town." The latter, which in lesser hands would be just another tale of a dismantled relationship, is colored with vivid imagery and some of Tate's most inspired and colorful interpretation. "Don't Compromise Yourself," clearly inspired by some of the more unseemly aspects of the music business, is another standout in its remarkably personalized reading, while the equally personal "Eternity" allows him to interpolate a touch of the preacher. The album closer, a revisitation of his previously recorded (and lauded) "Get It While You Can," serves the same spiritual purpose. All the facets of Tate's voice that had drawn R&B aficionados to his work in years past are still present, particularly his sweetly effortless falsetto fills. His delivery is wiser but not wizened, and the absence of overemoting is a refreshing reminder that so often in deep soul, less is more. A few tepid bar-blues arrangements temper the power of the collection; the Uptown Horns, while entirely competent, are nowhere near as innovative or funky in arrangement or delivery as, say, the punchy brass section on Tate's self-titled 1972 release. Additionally, the tracks "Organic Love" and "She May Be White (But She Be Funky)" are a little too gimmicky for their own good (though the latter slyly and smartly addresses lingering attitudes against miscegenation). These quibbles aside, Tate proves with Rediscovered that his was -- and remained -- a voice to be reckoned with, one underappreciated yet worthy of being considered alongside such luminaries as Al Green. Rediscovered, yes -- and one hopes, someday, rewarded.

Miller Anderson has been on the cutting-edge of rock for more than three decades. Although he's only released two solo albums — Dream City in 1971 and Celtic Moon in 1988 — the Scotland-born guitarist and vocalist has been involved with many influential musicians. Since cutting his musical teeth in bands with Ian Hunter (pre-Mott the Hoople) and Bill Bruford (pre-King Crimson and Yes), Anderson has been a member of such bands as the Keef Hartley Band, Savoy Brown, T. Rex, Mountain, the Spencer Davis Group, and in groups led by Deep Purple's Jon Lord and folk-rock balladeer Donovan. Anderson launched his career with the Royal Crests in 1964, continuing to play with the group as they evolved into Karl Stuart & the Profiles. Although he recorded one single with the Voice, "Train to Disaster" b/w "Truth," he left the band soon afterwards and was replaced by Mick Ronson. After meeting Ian Hunter during recording sessions at Regent Sound Studios, Anderson and Hunter formed a band, the Scenery, with drummer John Verson Smith. The group, which enlarged into a quartet with the addition of keyboardist Dante Smith, released an EP in Japan. In 1967, the group became the backup band for pianist/vocalist Freddie "Fingers" Lee as the Freddie "Fingers" Lee Band. While Anderson temporarily left the group to join the Paper Blitz Tissue, where he met Bill Bruford who replaced drummer Dave Dufort, he rejoined Hunter and Lee in March 1968 to form the oddly named group At Last the 1958 Rock 'n' Roll Show. After recording one single, "I Can't Drive" b/w "Workin' on the Railroad," the band changed their name to Charlie Woolfe. Upon leaving this group, Anderson and Hunter temporarily resurrected the Scenery. In late 1968, Anderson joined the Keef Hartley Band. Although they had begun to work on their debut album, the group had changed their lead singer twice before Anderson was recruited. In addition to playing with them at the Woodstock Festival in August 1969, Anderson recorded five albums with the band — Halfbreed, The Battle of North West, The Time Is Near, Overdrive, and the live album Little Big Band. Leaving the group to start his solo career, Anderson formed the Miller Anderson Band. Assembled to play concerts, the group never toured, instead playing several sessions for BBC Radio. Anderson continued to change bands at a lightning pace. After his band Hemlock toured as the opening act for Savoy Brown in 1973, Anderson was invited to join Kim Simmonds and Stan Webb (from Chicken Shack) to create a three-guitar lineup for Savoy Brown in January 1974. Although he wrote several songs for Savoy Brown's album Boogie Brothers, he only remained in the band until December. While he joined Blood, Sweat & Tears, he left within a few weeks following the departure of lead singer David Clayton-Thomas. Anderson's next projects included the band Dog Soldier with Keef Hartley, and a group assembled by ex-Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor featuring former members of Stone the Crows. Although he joined T. Rex in August 1976, he left after helping to record the album Dandy in the Underworld to tour with Donovan. Anderson's plans to rejoin T. Rex ended with the tragic car accident death of Marc Bolan on September 16, 1977. Instead, he continued to tour with Donovan until 1978 when he and keyboardist Ronnie Leahy joined with guitarist/vocalist Jimmy McCulloch to form the Dukes. While the group recorded a minor hit, "Hearts in Trouble," they fell apart following McCulloch's death. Joining Stan Webb's Speedway in 1982, Anderson left to play bass with a resurrected Chicken Shack from September through December 1984.Anderson next became involved with Mountain. Although he was slated to play guitar in the group, which also featured original drummer Corky Laing and Ian Hunter, he switched to bass when original guitarist Leslie West rejoined the group. Anderson first collaborated with Spencer Davis in a reorganized version of the Spencer Davis Group that featured vocalist Chris Farlowe, bassist/vocalist Colin Hodgkinson, keyboardist Zoot Money, and drummer Pete York and recorded one album, Extremely Live at Birmingham Town Hall. Anderson continued to work with York in Pete York and Superblues. They rejoined the Spencer Davis Group in 1995 and 1997. In September 1993, Anderson performed solo at Blackhearth Concert Hall in South London in a show that also featured Bert Jansch, Davey Graham, and John Renbourn. Anderson played several shows with Jansch before resuming his solo career in January 1994. In June 1994, Anderson formed a trio with Miller and Colin Hodgkinson. Anderson was recruited in July 1995 for two gigs with Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord's group the Gemini Band. He subsequently recorded an album, Pictured Within, with Lord. Anderson's first solo album, Bright City, released in 1971, was recorded with accompaniment from the late Gary Thain (pre-Uriah Heep), Mick Weaver, and Peter Dines. His second album, Celtic Moon, released in 1988, was a mostly acoustic outing recorded with the Spencer Davis Group.

Roger Cotton- Keyboards on Whiskey Talkin,  Love Won’t Wait  and  Little Miss Know It All

Marcus Malone continues to turn out very high quality recordings with the release of his latest CD “Hurricane”. Malone, a Detroit native and current UK resident, is without question one of the finest vocalists to be found in the blues, blues/rock, or rock genres. He has a very Paul Rogers like quality to his voice which, when combined with the considerable guitar skills of Stuart Dixon, is excellent for the multiple styles of music he plays. And, after all, Marcus Malone and his music are much about excellence. “Hurricane” includes 12 tracks of Malone original compositions, ranging from tunes that sound like old spirituals to some pretty hard blues/rock numbers. The musicians are very good, with the aforementioned guitarist Dixon being the stand out player, but the rest of the band is spot on as well. I particularly enjoy writing and bringing recordings like this to your attention, ones that are first rate in every possible category. Every song here is worthy of you time, and you will especially enjoy the gospel number “Round The Corner”, the scorching blues of “Whiskey Talkin”, the very hard rock track “Crawlin” which is outstanding, and a blues rock beast and perhaps my favorite on the set “Christine”. No matter the style, no matter the message, the voice is always spectacular.
“Hurricane” is a must own for any guitar driven blues/rock fan as are any other of Malone’s recordings. Please visit the official Marcus Malone web site at www.marcusmalone.com for instructions on how to get yourself a copy.

With his excellent band, Malone delivers hard-edged guitar solos, delicate ballads, easy shuffles as well as rolling gospels. Everything that lets the heart of a modern blues fan beat faster --Blues News Germany
His songs and performance manage to bridge the distance between contemporary and vintage, blues, blues rock and soul with themes that are timeless rather than dated --Blues Review USA
Hailing from Detroit, Rock/Blues guitarist, songwriter and soulful singer Marcus Malone has a vocal range similar to Paul Rodgers and is a heavyweight rock/blues musician whose career has included a stint on UA/Capital records and Motown. He has appeared at the Albert Hall with BB King, opened for Walter Trout, and headlined numerous festivals in the US, UK and Europe. Marcus's music is a mix of deep toned grooves ranging from heavy rock to soulful blues/rock ballads. Marcus has a powerful touring unit to backup some excellent songs in the form of Stuart Dixon with his exhilarating solos and speedy licks and an equally hot rhythm section consisting of Chris Nugent on drums and Johan Buys on bass. There isn t a more exciting blues rock band on the live circuit.

Roosevelt ‘Booba” Barnes was born in September 25, 1936, Longwood, Mississippi, about eighteen miles outside of Greenville.  His family worked in the local cotton fields and raised hogs. Young Roosevelt  lost a portion of one finger when a hog bit him while he and his father attempted to ring the animal’s nose.  He learned to play music on a toy harmonica when he was eight, sitting in with many of the local blues musicians around Greenville, Mississippi,  in the 50s.  His nickname came from a brother who said that Roosevelt was worse than a booby trap.  Roosevelt just changed the spelling. He started earning money by playing juke joints when he was sixteen.  His brother Leroy got him started by sending  him harmonicas. At the age of seventeen, Barnes decided to seek his fortune as a blues musician and became a regular performer in the clubs on Greenville’s famed Nelson Street. Booba formed his own band called the Swinging Gold Coasters  in 1956 and started playing guitar in 1960. In his early years, he attempted to imitate Sonny Boy Williamson’s style, but the influence of his idol Howlin’ Wolf would stay with him all of  his life. Barnes truly considered Howlin’ Wolf to be the best. In fact, playing with Howlin’ Wolf was one of his favorite memories. Howlin’ Wolf returned the compliment by calling Barnes “Little Wolf.”  In 1958, Barnes moved to St. Louis where his brother was playing for the Cardinals.  In 1964 Barnes moved to Chicago, Illinois, and stayed there until 1971 when he returned to Greenville. In 1973, he traveled to Chicago to record as a backup musician with the Jones Brothers. He cares more for the enjoyment of his audience than his own personal gain.  He says that he has a desire to give his all with every performance to ensure that any witness to his show goes away with a feeling that they have received their money’s worth and that the individual performer has given them their all. The Heartbroken Man was recorded by O’Neal, one of the founders of Living Blues magazine and founder and owner of Rooster Blues, the company for which Barnes cut his only single and record.It  was released in 1990. After it was released, it was well received by fans and critics alike. Robert Palmer began filming his documentary Deep Blues and captured Barnes and The Playboys live in The Playboy Club.  Palmer describes Booba in his liner notes to “Deep Blues” this way: “To call him a flamboyant showman would be an understatement. He twists, he turns, he drops to his knees, he plays one-handed, and he picks more guitar with his teeth and tongue than many more celebrated Bluesmen who use their fingers.”
In 1995, Booba Barnes was diagnosed with severe lung cancer and the disease progressed quickly.  But he kept touring almost until the end. He played the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in February of 1996.  Barnes died of lung cancer April 8, (some sources say April 2) 1996,in a nursing home in Chicago at the age of 59.

There is not much to find on the internet about this group in general. However, I did find these bits of information below.
On one of their LP's titled 'Swamp Water'. A Review on Ebay. (http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Swamp-Water-Backbone-Slip-CD-Apr-1991-Blue-Wave-Records-/3379711)
"Backbone Slip, led by former Jukin' Bone bandmates Mark Doyle and Joe Whiting, produced their masterpiece with this disc. The songwriting is catchy and the covers are perfectly selected. Doyle's production is vibrant and alive, causing the performances to leap off the disc, and coaxing the best from all the musicians. A re-recording of their classic "Jungle Fever" kicks the disc off and it never looks back. Doyle's solo on Ray Charles' "I'm Gonna Move To The Outskirts Of Town" should be mandatory listening for anyone who's ever picked up a guitar and tried to play the blues, and Robbie Spagnoletti's drumming warrants special mention. Find this disc! It'll be worth the search.
Nadeau Music 'Doyle and Whiting' ( http://www.nadeaumusic.net/doyleandwhiting.html )
"Mark Doyle and Joe Whiting are one of the most celebrated partnerships from Syracuse, New York's rich pool of musicians. They have played together in various bands dating back to the early 1960's. I would highly recommend listening a copy of Buried Bones to get a full understanding of the music these guys have put together. Tours with the likes of early Van Halen and contributions to many other projects are just a part of their resume.

Brian Curran is in his thirties, but don't let that fool you. Brian has been studying blues and fingerstyle guitar for almost 20 years. He keeps his feet planted firmly in the sounds of the past but is not afraid to put his own stamp on the music he loves. Brian has performed at some of the area's top venues including Off Broadway, The Pageant, B.B.'s Jazz Blues & Soups and many more. Brian is also not just a one man show. In addition to playing solo, he is well known as a duo with Adam Andrews on harmonica. Brian also travels regionally. On stage Brian puts on a great show and always gets the audience involved. He is known to sometimes tell as many stories and jokes to the listeners as songs. Altogether, whether solo or with a band, you can't go wrong no matter what your taste in music might be. Going to see Brian is just a plain old fun time. Made Myself Lonesome contains 15 cuts of the gritty, beutiful, funny, heartfelt, homemade blues Brian is known for. Brian has sharpened his performing and writeing skills in the clubs and concert stages of St. Louis and surrounding areas for the past 8 years. He cotinues to grow and add to his reputation with the release of Made Myself Lonesome The songs run the gamut from the heartfelt slow finger-picking style of the original title track to the pounding take of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love" to the quiet beauty of another original "Who Gives This Bride" plus a generous dose of Brian's take on Mississippi John Hurt, Hank Williams, Robert Johnson and Blind Willie McTell.

Cosmic writer and haunted guitare player, this new Bukowski invites you in his madness, working hard on six strings, dealing hard with the typewrite. In this strange world, Bogart plays poker with Tom Waits and Jules Verne listen to Charlie Parker in a smoked bar from the East Side.

 9. Not My Home - 4:51
10. When the Saints Go Marching In - 2:41

We first saw Sean Michel perform on American Idol when he auditioned with “God’s Gonna Cut You Down.”  However, that is not even close to who Sean Michel is as an artist.  We have seen him perform on numerous occasions and he is an unsanitized, gut-rock Delta blues musician. Sean Michel combines a a soaring voice, ripping slide guitar skills and a fiery passion for God into a foot stompin’, hip swingin’, glory shouting Gospel party.
Sean Michel‘s new album Back To The Delta showcases the power of his music and his message.  From the opening track, “When The Saints Go Marching In” to the end, “I Wanna Be More Like Jesus” there is no question that Sean Michel is as true a bluesman as those sharecroppers who walked the dirt roads of the south in the “30?s and 40?s.  Every song showcases Sean Michel as powerful a preacher as any televangilist. The middle set of songs, “Hosea Blues”, “The Curse Is Broken”, “My Jesus”, and “He Is the One” is hot enough to give you radiation burns, or should I say, Gospel burns.

 7. Never Be the Same - 2:52
 8. You There - 4:15
 9. I Know I've Been Converted (stripped) - 4:17

"Do a Google search for a video of Sean's American Idol audition foot-stomping performance of Johnny Cash's "God's Gonna Cut You Down" and you'll get an instant feel for where he's at. The first thing you have to say is, "Wow, what a beard!" and the second is, "What a soulful voice!" The format is a stripped down, rough and ready rock with a style reminiscent of The Who, Free and Johnny Cash, crowned with the spiritual fervour of Keith Green. This rawness along with Sean's emotive voice alternately belting out and crooning with the emotion of the songs is a powerful combination. The CD begins with the slow title track melody sung as if down a phone, and ends with a stripped down version of the same song, giving an immediate feeling of overall structure containing the musical and subject matter of the other songs. Vocals aside, there are some pretty large guitar riffs as on "Arkansas" and some funky acoustic playing as on "Never Be The Same," but the outstanding highlight is the heartrending performance of the old spiritual "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?" which brought me to tears. The sleeve states that the whole CD was recorded in Sean's living room, which just goes to show what you can achieve at home these days if you put your mind to it. There is the odd timing slipup here and there and some work is required on ensuring consistent backing vocals tuning. But the best cuts here really hit home."-- Cross Rhythms Review by Matthew Cordle

During the lonely and troubled periods of his youth in Wisconsin, Glenn Kaiser found solace in music. As the youngest child born to parents who were already raising a boy and a girl, he sang to fill the hours when his older siblings moved out on their own. When divorce tore his family apart when he was nine years old, he again turned to music to ease the loneliness and pain. Within three years he joined a local band. By the age of 18, however, his troubles had grown. The little boy who had once found solace in music had already tried to kill himself. He had also overdosed on drugs several times, and floated in and out of a string of relationships as well as bands. By 1971, however, Kaiser had turned to Jesus. He gave up singing to better concentrate on spiritual matters. Kaiser allowed music back into his life a year later when he contemplated ministering to others with his songs. He became a member of the gospel rock Resurrection Band, aka REZ, in conjunction with the movement known as Jesus People USA. In later years, Kaiser would work as one of the Chicago-based community's pastors. He also turned his ministry toward the blues-rock genre and established the Glenn Kaiser Band. Another Resurrection Band alumnus, bass player Roy Montroy, joined Kaiser's new group, and drummer Ed Bialach completed the outfit. Kaiser also is an author. With Cornerstone Press he published two books, The Responsibility of the Christian Musician and More Like a Master: A Christian Musician's Reader. ~ Linda Seida

A compilation of the two albums Benton made for the French Black & Blue label in 1983 and 1985, this 15-song collection rates with his best. Two separate bands are involved, and the sound changes with them: backed by harpist Billy Branch's Sons of Blues, Benton exercises his R&B-laced chops, while the older hands behind him on "Honey Bee," "The Hawk Is Coming," and "Hole in My Head" (guitarist Johnny Littlejohn, pianist Leake, drummer Odie Payne) assure that the grooves stay more in the mainstream.

Some of the artists covered on the CD include: Magic Sam, Bobby "Blue" Bland, T-Bone Walker, Lightnin' Slim, Smokey Smothers and B.B. King. Vocalist Linda Freeman teams up with some of Austin, Texas' most passionate and talented blues players (Jon Moeller, Mike Lewandowski, Marc Nelipovich, Mike Keller, and Matt Farrell). In 1956 in Dallas, TX., a group of kids who called themselves the Nightcaps, enjoyed regional fame playing blues and had a hit song called "Wine, Wine, Wine." The lead guitar player, David Swartz, who influenced many great Texas musicians, had a particular influence on Linda Freeman, his niece. Linda carries on the family blues tradition by respectfully naming the band after the Nightcaps most famous song.

Johnny "Big Moose" Walker (June 27, 1927 – November 27, 1999) was an American Chicago blues and electric blues pianist and organist. He worked with many blues musicians, including Ike Turner, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Lowell Fulson, Choker Campbell, Elmore James, Earl Hooker, Muddy Waters, Otis Spann, Sunnyland Slim, Jimmy Dawkins and Son Seals. Walker was primarily a piano player but was also proficient on the electric organ and the bass guitar (he played the bass guitar when backing Muddy Waters). He recorded solo albums as well as accompanying other musicians in concert and on recordings. John Mayon Walker was born in the unincorporated community of Stoneville, Mississippi, partly of Native American ancestry. He acquired his best-known stage name in his childhood in Greenville, Mississippi, derived from his long, flowing hair.He learned to play several instruments, including church organ, guitar, vibraphone and tuba.He began his musical career as a pianist, in 1947, touring with various blues bands and backing such notable artists as Ike Turner, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Elmore James, Lowell Fulson and Choker Campbell. Walker served in the United States Army from 1952 to 1955, serving during the Korean War.In 1955, billed as Moose John, Ultra Records released the single, "Talkin' 'Bout Me".His own recordings, released under various names, were unsuccessful, but Walker started working more consistently in the mid-1950s, notably backing Earl Hooker and Elmore James.Walker moved to Chicago in the late 1950s and over the next decade accompanied Sunnyland Slim, Otis Rush, Muddy Waters (for whom Walker played bass guitar), Ricky Allen, Little Johnny Jones, and Howlin' Wolf. In 1960, he accompanied Junior Wells on his best-known recording, "Messin' with the Kid".The following year Walker played on James's recordings of "Look on Yonder Wall" and "Shake Your Moneymaker". In 1962, Walker played on Waters's recording of "You Shook Me". During the 1960s, a couple of obscure Chicago based record labels, Age and The Blues, released Walker's solo singles. By 1969, Walker had rejoined Earl Hooker and played on the latter's album Don't Have to Worry (ABC Bluesway). After Hooker's death in 1970, Walker played backing for Jimmy Dawkins, Mighty Joe Young and Louis Myers.His debut album, Ramblin' Woman, was issued in 1970 by ABC. He provided piano accompaniment on Andrew Odom's album Farther on the Road and on If You Miss 'Im...I Got 'Im, by John Lee Hooker, featuring Earl Hooker. Alligator Records utilised Walker's playing on their Living Chicago Blues series of recordings. He toured Europe in 1979 with the Chicago Blues Festival. His second album, Blue Love, was released in 1984. He later toured in New Zealand and Canada. He recorded with Son Seals  and performed at the Burnley Blues Festival, in England, in 1991. Walker had a stroke prior to this engagement, and subsequent strokes left him unable to perform. Evidence Music reissued Blue Love in 1996, with five bonus tracks.Walker lived in a nursing home in Chicago before his death, at the age of 72, in November 1999.

The Nimmo Brothers, from Glasgow, Scotland have proved themselves to be one of the most respected exponents of modern blues the UK has seen since the blues boom of the 1960’s. Coming Your Way marked the beginning of a hugely successful relationship with Armadillo Music. This album captured the true spirit and energy that makes The Nimmo Brothers so special and also catapulted them to the forefront of the British and European blues scenes, winning best UK blues album and best UK blues band awards in 2002. 2003 was time for a change of pace with their first acoustic album New Moon over Memphis focusing on the vocal and song writing talents of The Nimmo Brothers. At the Low County Blues Bash in Charleston, South Carolina they were given two consecutive standing ovations. In 2006 Armadillo released Live at Cottiers recorded in their home town of Glasgow. The Nimmo Brothers were back with a bombardment of new killer songs in the UK, Ireland and Europe. 2009 The Nimmo sound is stronger and more powerful than ever as they dust down the old orange valve amps and haul out their treasured Les Pauls and Strats to promote the Picking up the Pieces. Once again becoming THE band to be reckoned with. Seventeen years performing together, with five successful CD releases behind them, Stevie and Alan Nimmo, went back to their roots with their latest CD, Brother to Brother.  Arguably they have written their best songs to date, influenced by "everything we’ve ever listened to over the past 20 years".
Recorded in Austin, Texas with Jamie Oldaker (Eric Clapton) on drums, Michael Ramos (Robert Plant, John Mellencamp, Paul Simon and Los Lonely Boys) on Hammond organ, Bill Whitbeck (Robert Earl Keen) and Jimmy Pettit (Joe Ely Band) on bass guitar. There is something for every rock fan in their original material as well as a couple of handpicked covers.
