Johnny Burgin sent this message to Radio 68:  “Another project  you may be interested in is the first American compilation of the underground Japanese blues scene— “No Border Blues”.  I played on it and sang a bit, but it’s all about some hidden Japanese talent people should know about”.  From the press release:  “The 1970’s Japanese tours of Chicago blues legends Otis Rush, Jimmy Dawkins, Eddie Taylor, and others created a small but intense Japanese blues scene that bursts over with talent three generations and over forty years later. Delmark Records was there at the beginning of the Japanese love affair with hard-hitting Chicago blues, releasing Otis Rush’s  ‘So Many roads’ (Delmark 643) recorded live in Japan in 1975.  Many of the attendees at that show were so inspired that they went on to become Japan’s first generation of blues musicians, and to serve as inspiration to the younger artists featured on the recording we’re proud to present today. No Border Blues is the first-ever American compilation of some of the brightest flames of the small but fervent underground blues scenes of Osaka, Tokyo, and Kyoto. It’s an unprecedented showcase of young and committed traditional blues artists that by and large never expected to be heard outside Japan (or even outside of their neighborhood “live house”), but very much deserve to be”.

“A classic of West Coast psych-pop, and a much sought-after gem. After the breakup of San Francisco garage groups The Brogues (Ain’t No Miracle Worker), most members went on to Quicksilver Messenger Service; bassist Bill Whittington formed The Family Tree with Bob Segarini of The Ratz and the enigmatic Lee Michaels. (…) . With input from Harry  Nilsson (at this time being hailed as a genius by The Beatles and writing songs for everyone from The Monkees and The Turtles on down) the band embarked on the semi-conceptual album Miss Butters, an amazing semi-lost gem of West Coast psych-pop genius and certainly on a par with Harry Nilsson’s own records of the period.  (…) Source / All rights reserved:
