Lonely !

Quote of the day :
"The brave man knows the fear 3 times in his life.
The first is when he sees footprints of lion, the second when he hears the lion , and the third time when he spots the lion".

Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee !

Yeeehaaa, I'm back.
You're all happy, aren't you.
Well, you should be.

Brownie McGhee was born Walter Brown McGhee in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1915 and suffered from polio as a child, which incapacitated his leg.
His Brother is of course Stick ‘Spo-Dee-O-Dee‘ McGhee.
Sonny Terry wasn't born blind -- he lost sight in one eye when he was five, the other at age 18. That left him with extremely limited options for making any sort of feasible living, so he took to the streets armed with his trusty harmonicas. Terry soon joined forces with Piedmont pioneer Blind Boy Fuller, first recording with the guitarist in 1937 for Vocalion.
McGhee first met Sonny Terry in North Carolina in 1939 and worked with him and singer Paul Robeson in Washington, DC, in 1940. McGhee began to record for Okeh Records in 1940. He had Sonny Terry play on his recording session of Workingman's Blues, and a long-standing partnership was formed. Shortly after they relocated and broke into the New York Folk scene, working alongside Leadbelly, Josh White, and Woody Guthrie.
From 1942 to 1950 McGhee also ran his own music school, 'Home of the Blues', in Harlem. After the end of WWII, he began to record, both with and without Sonny Terry, for a myriad of R&B labels: Savoy, Alert, London, Derby, Dot, and Harlem.
Sonny Terry was doing the same with recordings for Jackson, Red Robin, RCA Victor, Groove, Harlem, Old Town, and Ember, usually with McGhee on guitar !
They were among the first Blues artists to tour Europe during the 1950s and recording to the early-'60s albums for Folkways, Choice, World Pacific, Bluesville, and Fantasy. They also toured with many Folk festivals in America, Canada and Europe, appearing on television and movies.
Both Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry continued to record solo as well as together. McGhee appeared in Tennessee Williams' play 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' on Broadway, 1955-57, and recorded several motion-picture soundtracks, and in 1987, McGhee gave a small but memorable performance as ill-fated blues singer, Toots Sweet, in the brilliantissimo Alan Parker's Angel Heart.
Anyway, they finally parted their ways in the mid-1970's due to personal problems. Sonny Terry continued to play and record, passing away in 1986. Brownie McGhee carried on for the next 10 years performing festivals and recording. His final appearance was at the Chicago Blues festival in 1995 before passing Feb.16, 1996, Oakland, California.

Kip Tyler !

There's suave, ultra-suave and even, as the Legendary Stardust Cowboy would tell ya, psycho-suave, but the drawling, lazy-as-hell vocal and the mean'n'evil descending guitar line on Kip Tyler's LA hipster masterpiece pretty much out-suaves everybody.
And Sandy ‘Casbah’ Nelson was on drums...

Kip Tyler:
* She's My Witch *
(this ones for Missus Frost of course)
* Rumble Rock *

I'm taking the week off folks.
Have a good one.

Rockin' Sidney !

Louisiana !
Rockin' Sidney Simien was born into a sharecropper's family in the tiny farming community of Lebeau, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana. He was a veteran Cajun-Zydeco musician who played almost every style of music, from the Caribbean beat to blues.
Although his success is based upon his identity within the Zydeco music community, Sidney did not start out playing the accordion or seeking fame as a Zydeco artist.
He sort of stumbled into it in the mid 1970s, having tried his hand at swamp pop and the blues. Heavily influenced by local legends like Slim Harpo and Cookie & the Cupcakes, Sidney made his first R&B-styled recordings on the Louisiana record labels Fame and Jin during the late 1950s. He was often backed by George Lewis on harmonica and Katie Webster on piano. Rockin’ Sidney also recorded on Rod Records.
Donning a turban, he came to Goldband in 1965 as the "Count Rockin' Sidney," and continued to record R&B and soul numbers including "Something Working Baby" and "Soul Christmas" with his band "The Dukes."
In the mid-seventies, Rockin' Sidney began working on Clifton Chenier-style zydeco songs on the piano accordion. His 30-year music career took off in 1985 with "Don't Mess With My Toot-Toot," a song he had penned ten years earlier. "Toot-Toot" brought Rockin' Sidney a Grammy nomination, and sold over a million copies.
Anyway, enjoy those classic early Jin Singles !
Gumbo !

In The Upper Room !

Mahalia Jackson reigned as a pioneer interpreter of gospel music whose fervent contralto was one of the great voices of this century. Both gospel and rhythm & blues had their roots in the Sanctified church, but whereas blues and R&B departed on secular paths that led to rock and roll, gospel stayed the spiritual course. Nonetheless, the influence of gospel on R&B and rock and roll, especially through such force-of-nature voices as Jackson’s, is inescapable.
Little Richard has cited Jackson as an inspiration, calling her “the true queen of spiritual singers.”
In Jackson’s own words, “Rock and roll was stolen out of the sanctified church!” Certainly, in the unleashed frenzy of the “spirit feel” style of gospel epitomized by such singers as Mahalia Jackson, Marion Williams and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, one can hear the rousing roots of rock and roll. One of Jackson’s accompanists was keyboardist Billy Preston !
Mahalia Jackson was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, on October 26, 1911 or 1912, and died of heart failure in Chicago on January 27, 1972.
The Jackson swinging beat coupled with an intense, expressive, and emotional performance met with resistance in many black churches. Some felt the music to be too jazzy—too worldly for church worship. Likewise, her repertoire expanded to include arrangements with orchestra in place of the piano and organ that she previously used.
She spent five years touring with composer Thomas A. Dorsey, singing at gospel tents and churches. Jackson recorded for Decca in 1937 and for Apollo from 1946-1954. She then moved to Columbia Records, where she achieved broad recognition as a singer of spirituals. She also lent her powerful voice and imprimatur to the Civil Rights movement of the Fifties and Sixties.
Hallelujah !
