RADIO 68 plays a selection from the compilation “April Fool”.
“Even among music fans the name Ronnie Lane doesn’t come up much. I’m not sure why. He was an original — “the East End urchin with the pastoral vision,” as Mojo put it — and about as unlikely a rock figure as you’re likely to find. The bassist and songwriter for British bands the Small Faces and the Faces, Lane gave it all up for a curious (to put it mildly) solo career: he ran away and formed a circus. But then he never had been a good fit for heady 1970s rock stardom: consider the fact that while the other members of the Faces were buying mansions and Rolls Royces, Lane remained in his £7 a week apartment in the uber-British-sounding town of Twickenham. And while the Faces toured America in private jets, Lane drove with his family from city to city in a Land Rover”.

“Chris Kenner was an R&B singer and songwriter originating from New Orleans.  He started his recording career under Baton Records, and in 1957 Kenner recorded and released “Sick and Tired” under Imperial.  It didn’t give a hit for him, but it otherwise did for Fats Domino when he covered it the following year.  In the early 1960s music scene Kenner collaborated with musician-composer-producer Allen Toussaint when the former moved to Instant label.  This partnership yielded the hit song “I Like It Like That.” In 1962 he released the eventual hit “Land of a Thousand Dances”.  He was also known for his songs that became hits for other artists, including Kamoze’s “Here Comes the Hotstepper” (which Kenner co-wrote) as well as “Land of 1,000 Dances” (notably by Wilson Pickett) and “I Like It Like That” (a #6 hit for The Dave Clark Five in 1965).  Kenner passed away in 1976 due to a heart attack.  He was only 46”.

Robben Ford: : “I used to deliberately write blues and rhythm and blues. The Blue Line, that band really focused on blues and rhythm and blues. Traditional. But over the years I’ve really tried to expand that and this new record, more than anything I’ve ever done, is a real departure from tradition in terms of the song-writing.”
On Purple House we hear special guests appearances such as blues powerhouse vocalist Shemekia Copeland; she sings a duet with Ford on “Break In The Chain.” Travis McCready, the lead singer of the Natchez, Mississippi band Bishop Gunn, contributes the lead vocals on “Somebody’s Fool.”  And we hear a fantastic guitar solo of Bishop Gunn’s guitarist Drew Smithers on the album’s closing track “Willing To Wait”.
