Mixing smoking slide guitar boogies and raw-boned Chicago shuffles with the deepest slow-burners, Lil’ Ed Williams and his rip-roaring Blues Imperials — bassist James “Pookie” Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton — deliver gloriously riotous, rollicking and intensely emotional blues. Currently celebrating 27 history-making years together, Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials ply their musical talents with skills that have been honed to a razor’s edge.… Read more...

TJENS COUTER: WHO CARES
Rereleased on vinyl by StarmanRecords www.starmanrecords.com

tjens couter who cares LP

“Tjens Couter maakte ongepolijste rootsmuziek, die steunde op de snijdende slidegitaar van Couter en het soepele, bluesy harmonicawerk van Hintjens, wiens karakteristieke zangstijl duidelijk beïnvloed was door Kevin Coyne. Alleen deed Tjens’ pseudo-cockney-accent een beetje geforceerd aan. Het stel vond uiteindelijk een zielsgenoot in de Aalsterse bluesmuzikant Karel Bogard (zie later ook Kandahar), die ten tijde van zijn langspeeldebuut als producer dienstdeed. Het expressieve slidegeluid van Paul Couter laat zich het best degusteren in ‘I’m On My Way’ en het van Willie Dixon geleende ‘Little Red Rooster’, een bluesclassic die Arno later zou hernemen met Charles & Les Lulus en die tot vandaag nog regelmatig op zijn setlist prijk”t.… Read more...

JOHN “HOPPY”  HOPKINS

Tonite Lets All Make Love cd

“John “Hoppy” Hopkins, who has died aged 77 on 30 Jan. 2015, was one of the best-known counterculture figures of London in the 1960s, not just as a photographer and journalist, but as a political activist. He was the co-founder of at least three underground projects: International Times (IT) magazine; a fabled but short-lived music venue called the UFO Club; and the London Free school, a community-based adult education initiative. (… )
In the summer of 1965, he co-organised the first of the events that went on to be known as the Poetry Olympics at the Royal Albert Hall, London.… Read more...

My Generation of Sunday 08 and Monday 09 February 2015 [2015-05]

Rebel Rousers and Luvvers ** Grave Jinglers ** Peter Green Connection 

SPECIAL: DAVE WENDELLS, Rebel Rouser and Luvver
Our story begins with CLIFF BENNETT & THE REBEL ROUSERS. Initially a rock’n’roll band formed in ‘59, they soon developed  into a soul – R&B  band with a fantastic brass section.  The band moved to Hamburg in ’62. Two members preferred to stay home and were replaced by former Savages NICKY HOPKINS and BERNIE WATSON. Another EX-SAVAGE helped them out: guitarist DAVE WENDELLS.

He had only been a SAVAGE for half a year,  from May to October 1962, alongside Carlo Little, Ricky Brown, Andy Wren and Ritchie Blackmore. He stayed with CLIFF BENNETT & THE REBEL ROUSERS till June ’65, long enough to feature on several singles and to enjoy chart success with “ONE WAY LOVE”, reaching no.… Read more...

WHITE BICYCLES: THE JOE BOYD STORY

Bruce Eder in allmusic.com
Boyd co-produced this collection, which touches on some of the key points of his career from several angles — Pink Floyd‘s debut single, the recording of which got Boyd squeezed out of the business end of their success and off of their subsequent records, even though it was a hit; his venture into jug band music with the Purple Gang‘s “Granny Takes a Trip”; and the debut single by Fairport Convention, “If I Had a Ribbon Bow,” to demonstrate how he and the band accommodated each other’s differing approaches to music.… Read more...
