“Blues-influenced hard rockers the Red Devils were formed in Los Angeles, California, USA, in 1988. The band consisted of Lester Butler (d. 1998; vocals, harp), Jonny Ray Bartel (bass) and Bill Bateman (drums) among others, although only these three were in the 90s line-up which also featured Paul Size (lead guitar) and Dave Lee Bartel (rhythm guitar). They emerged from an informal jam session and Bateman recalls their first audience as ‘nine champion skateboarders sitting at the bar’. Butler had first learned blues harp at the age of six, because the instrument was the only one within his budget. Later he became a pupil of urban blues guitar maestro Hollywood Fats, who contributed to groups including the Blasters and the James Harman Band. When Fats died in 1986 it gave Butler the impetus to enter the music industry. After performing regularly at high school parties and other informal events, he eventually made the acquaintance of Bateman and Bartel, both fellow travellers on the Los Angeles roots rock scene (Bateman had also played on three albums with the Blasters). The Red Devils finally came to the attention of Def American Records and Rick Rubin in the early 90s, who saw an opening for their dense, excitable blues rock sound. Rubin was also on hand to record the band’s debut album, a glimpse of the Red Devils in their natural, live setting. The previous year they had appeared on sessions with Mick Jagger, though he did not include the results on his Wandering Spirit album. Butler signed to HighTone Records, releasing a solo album in 1997. He died from a drug overdose the following year”. Source: Artist Biography by AllMusic


(…) “Arnold made the recordings in London, where she arrived in the mid-1960s as a member of Ike & Tina Turner’s Ikettes. She sang with trendsetting chart regulars Small Faces, who were signed to Andrew Loog Oldham’s Immediate label, and then got her own deal with the label, scoring a top 20 U.K. hit with Cat Stevens’ “The First Cut Is The Deepest” and several other chart singles including “Angel Of The Morning.”. (…) Eight of the ten or so tracks that Arnold recorded with Gibb are on The Turning Tide,including “Turning Tide” itself, which the Bee Gees recorded for 1970’s Cucumber Castle. The trio’s expanding success at the time prevented Gibb from completing the sessions, whereupon Stigwood landed Arnold the opening slot on Clapton’s post-Blind Faith tour with Delaney & Bonnie and Friends. Clapton, impressed with her vocal prowess, readily agreed to complete the album sessions, using the Delaney & Bonnie touring band that became Derek and the Dominos, as well as vocalists Rita Coolidge and Doris Troy. But even then, the recordings became entangled in business issues that are finally resolved now, the better part of 50 years later”. Source: all rights reserved:


EP “7×2”
“Op zondag 22 oktober presenteerde het Stones- en bluesduo Spider & The Fly hun nieuwe EP, getiteld  “7×2” in een bomvolle Moriaan te Roosendaal.  Op deze nieuwe cd staan 7 songs, waaronder “Ride ‘Em On Down”, voor de meeste liefhebbers enkel bekend van de laatste Stones-cd “Blue & Lonesome”.  The Stones speelden dit nummer echter al tijdens hun allereerste optreden in The Marquee Club op 12 juli 1962. Met een aantal nummers van dat eerste optreden vieren Spider & The Fly in De Moriaan het 55-jarig bestaan van The Rolling Stones. Deze EP wordt bij optredens verkocht voor  € 5,– maar kan ook per post verstuurd worden” BRON:
