Hogan Silas - So Long Blues (CD)


A fitting tribute to the late Louisiana bluesman Silas Hogan , So Long Blues gathers together 22 of his Excello recordings, including 6 previously unreleased sides. Born September 15, 1911, in Westover, Louisiana, Hogan was taught the guitar by uncles Robert and Frank Murphy (both of whom also influenced the great country bluesman Robert Pete Williams). In 1939, he moved to Baton Rouge, quickly establishing himself on the thriving blues scene there and teaming up with Arthur ’Guitar’ Kelley, his partner for over fifty years. Hogan’s style remained country, even when he switched to the electric guitar in the mid ’50s. Hogan cut an earlier single for Reynaud Records but his big break came at the age of fifty-one, when Slim Harpo recommended him to legendary producer J D Miller. He became one of J D Miller’s favourite artists, his recordings regularly appearing on the Excello label, selling respectable quantities of between 5-10,000 copies each. Changes at Excello in the mid-’60s saw Hogan leave the label but he recorded again in the ’70s for Arhoolie, Blue Horizon and Excello (yet again). Though he never had the kind of major regional or national hits secured by the likes of Louisiana bluesman Slim Harpo, Hogan’s work was highly distinctive and tracks like Dark Clouds Rollin’, Trouble At Home Blues and I’m Going In The Valley became firm favourites with blues fans on both sides of the Atlantic. Compiled by John Broven with sleevenotes by New Orleans R&B expert Jeff Hannusch.
