Ronnie and the Broadcasters were great last night. Rons getting old had to sit more than usual, Dave Lumina was great on k/b's as usual, new bass player and officially a singer. Diane Blue, great blues voice plays decent harp too. Different then their usual set now that they have vocals. Three hr show. He can still make that axe cry.
Personally I prefer the second one; Blues of Desperation, but they do complement each other...like a story, a double album.
There are some great Blues tunes, and others so so. All in all it blues my world just fine, without disillusion, in these times, our times.
Someday I will get on with the program, and buy new LPs, and a subscription to Tidal...with MQA.
I like Reference Recordings...Classical, Blues, and some Jazz.
That CD above, Jimmy Smith, is from 2000 (Blue Thumb Records / Verve), and 2001 the year I purchased it...seventeen years ago, when I was young and in my prime. RR is one of the best music record labels. I'm gonna spin some ... THX for the link Chuck; we need more Blues well recorded like that, with natural raw and awe...good for the soul and the cool factor.
