Amos Milburn !

Image
Thank God, it’s Friday. Boogie piano master Amos Milburn was born in Houston, and died there a short 52 years later. In between, he created some of the best boogie of the postwar era, usually recording in Los Angeles for Aladdin Records. Quite a lot of the releases proved to be massive sellers in the pre rock and roll era, some of which demonstrated Milburn's oft-forgotten abilities with the mellower side of R&B. By 1972 he had retired from the business and returned to his home town of Houston where he died eight years later - after his alcoholism had first induced epilepsy and a leg had to be amputated in April 1979. Anyway, I could post 50 more extraordinary songs by Milburn, but it’s Friday. It’s drinking time. HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!

Lou Millet !

Image
For all of you who loved the eddie bond track of last week, here’s Lou Millet ! Lou Millet was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He started recording about 1950 for Feature records who sold "That's Me Without You" to Dot before he was signed to Columbia when he also worked as Lefty Frizzell's band leader. Lefty Frizzell gave him his first big break and in 1953, he was still associated with him, by fronting the band during one of Fritzell's tours. And on a personal note (...), Lou was six feet and a half and weighed in around 210 pounds then.I'm sure you're happy to know that. Millet obviously recorded until about 1972 without any hit in the charts, but his Hillbilly songs are really something for the fan of this type of music ! And yes, we're fans ! Lou Millet - Slip,Slip,Slippin' in Lou Millet - Shorty The Barber

Charlie Rich !

Image
To be clear, Charlie Rich willfully bended genres, fusing country, jazz, blues, gospel, rockabilly, and soul. Sounds familiar ? Well, forget what you know 'cos he was the man. Rich began his professional musical career while he was enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in the early '50s. While he was stationed in Oklahoma, he formed a group called the Velvetones (not the same one posted last year), which played jazz and blues. Sam Phillips (oh, him again ?) rejected the demos Rich recorded, claiming they were too jazzy. After absorbing some Jerry Lee Lewis records a friend gave him, Rich returned to Sun quickly and became a regular session musician for the label in 1958, playing and/or singing on records by Lewis, Johnny Cash, Justis, Warren Smith, Billy Lee Riley, Carl Mann, and Ray Smith. He was also writing songs, including "Break Up" for Lewis, "The Ways of a Woman in Love" for Cash, and "I'm Comin' Home" for Mann, which was later cut by

The Vagrants !

Image
One of the few rock bands signed to the folkie Vanguard label, the Vagrants cut some fair singles between 1965 and 1968 including the excellentissimo (& cult-classic here in the Rev’s crypt) « I Can't Make A Friend » (which is absolutely not the case by the way) Ok, here’s an nice page if you wanna know some more !

Jack Scott !

Image
Despite his snarling rockabilly attitude, Giovanni Sacfone Jr.(yes, jack Scott) hailed from Ontario, Canada, and grew up near Detroit, developing a love for hillbilly music along the way. Jack Scott sounded tough, like someone you wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley unless he had a guitar in his hands. When he growled "The Way I Walk," wise men (and women) stepped aside. Read a very good bio here Jack Scott - The Way I Walk Jack Scott - Leroy Jack Scott - Bella

Dale hawkins !

Image
Yeeeha we're back Hawkins is best known for writing and recording "Suzie Q", a 1957 release that was a hit on both the R&B and pop charts. The song soon became a bandstand classic for generations of aspiring young rockers, including Creedence Clearwater Revival, which recorded it in 1968 (in case you didn’t know that). The phrase "suzy q" refers to a dance step, and can be heard on many old blues records from the 1920s and 30s. But Hawkins personalized it into a tale of a sultry siren, propelled by a catchy lick laid down by guitar virtuoso James Burton, who was only 15 when "Suzy Q" was recorded. He continued to record, but never experienced another comparable hit, in part because many listeners and radio programmers wrongly assumed that Hawkins was black. The era's rigid, prejudicial boundaries hurt Hawkins career in both white and black markets ! Dale Hawkins - Tornado Dale Hawkins - Mrs Merguitory's Daughter Dale Hawkins - Suzie Q

Lightnin' Slim !

Image
He was born with the unglamorous handle of Otis Hicks in St. Louis, Missouri on March 13, 1913. Taught guitar by his older brother Layfield, Lightnin' Slim was playing bars in Baton Rouge by the late 1940s. He recorded for Excello Records for 12 years, starting in the mid 1950s. Slim often collaborated with his brother in law, Slim Harpo.He’s the perfect blues raconteur, even when reshaping other's material to his dark, somber style. He also possessed one of the truly great voices of the blues; His exhortation to "blow your harmonica, son" has become one of the great, mournful catchphrases of the blues, and even on his most rockin' numbers, as Cub Koda once wrote, Lightnin' always sounded like bad luck just moved into his home approximately an hour after his mother-in-law died.

Willie Mabon !

Image
The sly, insinuating vocals and chunky piano style of Willie Mabon won the heart of many an R&B fan during the early '50s. Mabon was already well-grounded in blues tradition from his Memphis upbringing when he hit Chicago in 1942. Schooled in jazz as well as blues, Mabon found the latter his ticket to stardom. His first sides were a 1949 78 for Apollo as Big Willie and some 1950 outings for Aristocrat and Chess (including here) with guitarist Earl Dranes as the Blues Rockers. Mabon sat out much of the late '60s but came back strong after moving to Paris in 1972, recording and touring Europe prolifically until his death.

The Avantis !

Image
Everyone enjoyed the boohahaha mix part 6 ? It's gonna be worse next week ! Ok, in 1963, brothers Pat Vegas and Lolly Vasquez (aka Vegas) released these two surf classics, as The Avantis. These two siblings where also members of ‘The Routers’, ‘The Mar-Kets’, ‘The Darts’, ‘The De-Fenders’ and ‘The Deuce Coupes’. Not content with being in every decent surf band that was around at the time, they went on to form ‘Redbone’ and had a massive International hit with ‘The Witch Queen of New Orleans’ !
