  • Victor Wainwright - Boom Town (CD)

    18,00

    This is the first release under the pact from Victor Wainwright and the WildRoots, entitled Boom Town. The CD was recorded in Edgewater, Florida and produced by Stephen Dees, who wrote much of the material on the album and is also the WildRoots bassist. Dees is a highly respected session player whose credits include playing with Hall and Oates, Pat Travers, and Todd Rundgren.   Said Victor, ”We’ve always prided ourselves on excellent songwriting, musicianship and production, but on ”Boom Town” we’ve also captured the energy and edge of our live shows. Although the concept of sin and salvation has been done before, this is our own personal statement, a story of Southern life, faith, redemption, and the challenges that we all face. The unique and edgy sound fits the purpose and storytelling to a T and lifts the whole record up to another level.” Victor’s star is definitely on the rise, having won the coveted Blues Music Award as ”Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year” in both 2013 and 2014, as well as anchoring the critically acclaimed Dixie supergroup, Southern Hospitality, whose ”Easy Livin'” release made the Top 10 on the Billboard blues chart. He is known for his high-octane boogie piano, big soul sounds, powerhouse blues, roots rock ’n’ roll, and a voice that recalls Dr. John and Leon Russell. He’s a raucous high-octane dynamic performer and a crowd pleaser with soul to spare.

  • Cash Box Kings - Holding Court (CD)

    20,00

    The Cash Box Kings continue to be the torch bearers of the classic sounds of Chicago blues. On their latest release, they pay homage to some of the founding fathers of the Chicago blues scene like Jimmy Rogers, and John Lee Hooker while also introducing the musical contributions of lesser known blues artists like Honey Boy Allen , Willie Love, and Big Smokey Smothers. While the CBKs have their feet firmly planted in these timeless musical traditions, they bring a spirited energy and updated approach to the music. While the subject matter of many of the songs is familiar (love, money and good times) they also touch on a number of current issues. Download Blues portrays the challenges of selling records and staying financially afloat in the era of digital piracy and streaming services. Gotta Move out to the Suburbs describes the real struggle faced by many who are forced out of their neighborhoods due to the gentrification taking place in inner-city areas of Chicago and other urban centers in the U.S.

    As the band s fan base and acclaim continue to grow, the Cash Box Kings are more dedicated and energetic than ever in their quest to keep these uniquely American musical traditions alive and relevant in the 21st Century.

  • Smokin` Joe Kubek & Bnois King - Fat Man’s Shine Parlor (CD)

    18,00

    As a young musician in Dallas, Smokin Joe Kubek would venture in the wee hours to a declining, somewhat unsavory neighborhood in search of fried chicken. A commercial district for African-Americans, the area had been a hotbed for jazz and blues musicians from the 1920 s through the 50 s where you could also find gun and locksmith shops, tattoo studios, pawnshops, and pool halls.
    Joe was fascinated by one remaining establishment called ’Fat Man s Shine Parlor.’ Ostensibly a place to get your shoes shined, it was also a place for other activities such as gambling, drinking, and womanizing.
    Joe sees this CD in a similar light: crack open the door, and inside you ll find more than advertised. Only in this case, the pleasures will be musical.

  • Branch Billy And The Sons Of Blues - Blues Shock (CD)

    18,00

    From the first song to the last Billy Branch & the SOBs reveal themselves as the stewards of the great Chicago blues tradition, and at the same time establish themselves as innovators of contemporary and modern blues. With this record, Billy Branch has taken all that he has learned over his decades of being immersed in blues, and while remaining true to the classic structure in some songs, in others he has managed to layer modern elements and versatile influences on top of the classic to create new standard that will set the tone for the future of this great genre. The record also has a conceptual element to it and a nice flow.

  • Ehrhardt Sena - All In (CD)

    18,00

    Sena Ehrhardt’s second Blind Pig release is a combination of soulful, roots-oriented music that incorporates blues-rock, reggae, soul-blues, and funk. The influence of multi-Grammy-award winner Jim Gaines, who has worked with numerous rock and blues performers, definitely made a difference in utilizing and combining the eclectic mixture without losing the identity of the band — Steve Hansen on bass, Tim Hasler on drums, and Sena’s father, Ed Ehrhardt, on guitar. Seven of the songs on All In were written by Sena and her father, including the reflective closing track Dreamin’ or Dyin.'” Also of special note among the 11 tunes are the cover versions of Solomon Burke’s ”Cry to Me” and ”Cold Cold Feeling,” originally recorded by T-Bone Walker.”

  • Magic Slim & The Teardrops - Bad Boy (CD)

    20,00

    ”Magic Slim turned 75 in 2012, but his growling vocals have the fire and brimstone of a Young Lion and his guitar playing is still as razor-sharp as it was when he turned pro in the ’50s. Slim doesn’t bring many modern touches to his music; he plays in the classic Chicago style that laid the foundation for today’s rock and blues and that’s just fine. With his backing Teardrops — Jon McDonald on guitar, Andre Howard on bass, and B.J. Jones on drums — he continues making first-class albums that sound like they were cut in 1955 and that’s a good thing. Denise LaSalle’s ”Someone Else Is Steppin’ In” gets a humorous reading with Howard singing a high lead vocal to complement Slim’s growl, which often slips into a Howlin’ Wolf-like growl. ”Champagne and Reefer,” a Muddy Waters tune, is taken at a smoky laid-back pace, as befits the subject matter, with Slim’s vocal inflections suggesting Muddy in his prime. ”Older Woman,” first cut by Lil’ Ed & the Blues Imperials, is taken at a leisurely pace that suggests the slow, smoldering tempo of mature love, although Slim sets off plenty of sizzling sparks with his bristling solos. Slim’s originals are just as solid as the covers. ”Sunrise Blues” is an old-fashioned slow shuffle with smooth Albert King-meets-Chuck Berry guitar work. ”Gambling Blues” and the mostly instrumental ”Country Joyride” give Slim a chance to show off his considerable chops, showcasing solos full of thick comped chords, distorted bass runs, and clear chiming lead lines.”

  • Wilder Webb - More Like Me (CD)

    20,00

    There are roots rockers, and then there’s Webb Wilder. His legendary live shows have inspired a burgeoning cult following. For over 20 years, Wilder has mined rock ’n’ roll’s most hallowed ground, but unlike so many others, he has approached it all with a rare irreverence and wit. His self-effacing persona gives Wilder’s music a sense of fun and imagination often lacking among his peers. And while many other proponents of American roots music simply stopped at Elvis and Chuck Berry, Wilder’s music incorporates influences as diverse as British Invasion, surf, country and roadhouse blues. As Billboard magazine noted, The band is Georgia Satellites, part Dave Edmunds, part Elvis Costello and altogether wonderful.” ”More Like Me” finds Webb in great form, and combines some of his new songs like the honky-tonking title cut with obscure cover gems — including a great version of Roky Erikson’s brooding ”Don’t Slander Me.””
