TINY LEGS TIM: Elsewhere Bound

“ (…) Tiny Legs Tim’s vorige album was geschoeid op de leest van de Deltablues. Voor Elsewhere Bound tapt hij uit veel meer vaatjes. Opener en titeltrack Elsewhere Bound en het daarop volgende One More Chance hebben beide die warmbloedige soul-jas die doet denken aan hoe funk en blues elkaar vonden eind jaren ’70. Still In Love is dan weer een huwelijk tussen een halve murderballad en jazzkroegblues, met halfweg een gitaarsolo die technisch misschien niet zo heel veel voorstelt, maar die wel heel doorleefd en doorrookt klinkt. Voor swingende rhythm & blues kan je terecht op In The Morning. Muzikaal klopt het plaatje van deze track helemaal, maar in de lyrics schiet Tiny Legs Tim willekeurig op alles wat beweegt. The Lovin’ Kind en Don’t Be Sorry volgen het spoor van de swamp-blues en americana en kunnen ook daar helemaal overtuigen. New Place is blues op een wel heel exotisch ritme en I Ain’t Ready (To Let You Go) is een folky tune voor een helemaal uit het leven gegrepen liefdeslied. Op The Game heeft Tiny Legs Tim zich voor zijn gitaarspel nogal laten inspireren door de touaregblues (Bombino en andere), met een tekst die inzake sfeer en toon doet denken aan de hoogdagen van Bob Dylan. En dat is nog niet eens het lekkerste snoepje in de winkel van Elsewhere Bound.(…)  Source / All Rights Reserved


Proby was born James Marcus Smith in Houston, Texas on 6 November 1938. (…) In 1957 Jimmy went to Hollywood to become a movie star and a singer. In Hollywood he looked up his old friend Tommy Sands, who advised him to take vocal coaching with the famous Lillian Goodman. (…) Jimmy’s name was changed to Jett Powers by the agents Gaby, Lutz, Heller and Loeb, who represented such names as Liberace, Johnny Ray, Kay Star and Frankie Laine, just to name a few. Two singles were released on Design Records.
Jett Powers met and hung out with a lot of now famous people, like Sharon Sheeley, who wrote Poor Little Fool for Ricky Nelson, Eddie Cochran, Elvis’s ex-girlfriend Dotty Harmony who Jett became engaged to, Kim Fowley, Johnny & Dorsey Burnette and many, many others in the industry (…)
In 1962 Sharon Sheeley got Jett a recording contract with Liberty Records and a song-writing contract with Liberty’s publishing arm Metric Music. Sharon changed Jett’s name to PJ. Proby, after an old boyfriend of her from her high school. Using his real name James Marcus Smith he wrote numerous songs for Metric Music and some of them became hits. The most well known songs are the Searchers’ hit Ain’t Gonna Kiss Ya, Johnny Burnette’s Clown Shoes and I Only Came To Dance With You by The Walker Brothers. Quoted from / All Rights Reserved:


“The new album comes after John had some serious health issues in 2018, forcing him to cancel some of his live shows, but after a well-earned rest John is now firmly back in familiar surroundings. The album starts off with What Have I Done Wrong, a blues tidal wave featuring legendary blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa’s unmistakable, seemingly never-ending solo, which also features on Delta Hurricane. We get similar blues noodlings with the Moon Is Full and The Hurt Inside, featuring young blues player Larry McCray and Evil And Here To Stay featuring Alex Lifeson of Rush fame. The album boasts an absolute legend of blues/rock guitarists Todd Rundgren, founding member of 1960s fuzz guitar heroes The Nazz. We also get multi-instrumentalist Carolyn Wonderland who features on 3 numbers, and finally one of the most distinctive faces and guitar players in the world, Steven Van Zandt from The E Street Band, gets to play some delightful guitar on It’s So Tough, making the final piece of this album’s jigsaw fit perfectly. The album is undoubtedly a who’s who of the current state of the premier blues players in the world, making it an essential purchase for all blues fans”. Quoted from / All Rights Reserved:
