JIMíS ACOUSTIC BLUES
Blues, worksongs and rags with some fine finger pickin'
Lots of original material on his beautiful steel guitar,
blues from the 1940s on and he even chucked in a Fats Domino song which rocked
the house. Goood!!
'Guitar'Allan, 'Pie-Anner' Richie
and 'Saxman' Rob
you dig Leroy Carr, Scrapper Blackwell, Georgia Tom and Tampa Red, then you
would have loved these cats.
Amazing set - had us all crying for more!
More first class rural blues from Bukka White to Luke
new name to Jim's and very welcome he was too!
'Pie-Anner' Richie and 'Saxman' Rob
piano pickin' an' low down rollin' blues 'n boogie, plus some smokin' I mean
steaming guitar! Had our teeth chattering for more!
Doc Sanders, Karen McLeod and Steve
and at times intensely moving country blues sung to Doc's old guitar mixed in with
some fine hokum blues on banjo and kazoo. Some great twin guitar blues from Doc
and Karen, the like of which is all too rare these days. Mighty good harp from
Steve. They take you back to the days of Memphis Minnie & Kansas Joe, Frank
Stokes & Dan Sane, and Garfield Akers & Joe Calicott. The chills didn't just run up your
spine but they turned round and run back down!
of the most popular artists to appear at Jim's with her smokin' vocals on
numbers from Ida Cox on down plus raunchy hokum backed up by her 'gang'
