Corby Yates Band 2003 Back From Yesterday



Genre: Blues
Rate: 192 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:52:04
Size: 71,57 MB

United States

From the acoustic slide of Johnny Winter's classic Dallas to the 'Day of the Eagle' Trower influenced chromatic riffing of the title track, Corby Yates debut release is a solid outting of guitar driven blues influenced hard rock. Ten of the twelve songs are originals with thoughtful lyrics and inventive musical structure. Corby's voice conveys the emotion of the words he sings. Definitely one to buy if you are into guitar driven blues rock. (Russ Hammond)

B. B. King & Bobby Bland 1974 Together For The First Time...Live



Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:07:40
Size: 154,70 MB

United States

Bland and King have shared stages since the '50s, when they were both members of the Beale Streeters, the legendary Memphis blues commune. In any case, this 1974 concert catches both artists at the peak of their game, recorded (with a nice sense of inside-the-band intimacy) in front of an extremely appreciative audience. Highpoints include a terrific call-and-response duet between the two stars on Bland's signature "That's the Way Love Is," and a riveting, can-you-top-this version of "3 O'Clock Blues," which features stinging guitar work by King and some of Bland's most impassioned singing ever.

Tracklist:

01 - 3 O'clock Blues 03:23

02 - It's My Own Fault 04:12

03 - Driftin' Blues 05:06

Wayne Baker Brooks 2004 Mystery



Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:54:28
Size: 124,68 MB

United States

Review by Sean Westergaard

By the time Wayne Baker Brooks released his debut album, he had played the blues in Lonnie Brooks' band for almost 15 years, served as a roadie for two years before that, and led his own band for seven years (in addition to still playing with his dad). Clearly, he did not rush into a recording career. Instead, he paid his dues and took the time to find his own voice: a course a less savvy bluesman might not have made, especially considering Brooks' family legacy. It was a wise decision, because Mystery is not just a strong debut, it's a fully formed new vision that updates the sound of the blues without falling into the same tired blues-rock clichés. Instead, Brooks adds some soul, funk, and even a little hip-hop to his solid blues foundation and comes up with a great set of all-original tunes.

Right from the opening title cut, you know this isn't your standard blues album. It opens with a tremoloed Fender Rhodes vamp with an acoustic rhythm guitar doing one thing in one ear and an electric doing something else in the other. And, are those turntables in the mix?! Yep, but it's a subtle touch like so many others throughout the album (and they're judiciously used on just two cuts). Brooks is a strong, soulful singer; he's got a big, meaty Gibson tone; and his solos often don't go where you're expecting them to. The production is crisp without being slick, and it's got a nice open mix. Brooks knew what he wanted from the tunes, and his arrangements are impressive. Hammond here, Clavinet there, horns on a couple tracks, some tasty slide, and well-done backing vocals all add variety, but Brooks' singing and guitar playing are always the focus. He's equally at home on uptempo numbers ("Sooner or Later," "It Don't Work Like That") as he is on the slower numbers like the soulful "Exiled." He brings a bit of the funk to "Baby Stop," and "Nu Kinda Blues" is just what it says with its pumping bass, scratching, and killer harmonica playing over a ZZ Top-style groove. But despite these additional influences, Brooks is a bluesman to the core, albeit a very modern one, and that becomes clear every time he starts playing his guitar (and check out the exchanges with Lonnie on "It Don't Work Like That"). Mystery is not just a great album; it marks Wayne Baker Brooks as someone to keep an eye on as the blues enter the 21st century. As Wayne himself said, "Blues purists might not get my music but blues has to breathe fresh air sometimes." Amen to that.


Tracklist:

01 - Mystery 05:03

02 - Baby Stop 04:05

03 - Exiled 04:36

Fried Goat 2014 Fried Goat


The 2nd album, Fried Goat, is due out on 2/25 and here are a couple of tracks...


Fried Goat is Southern Rock with a conscious.

Or a conscience. Take your pick, they're not spellers.

Unashamed. Not good with women. A dirty-floor bar band with a pop twist that comes and goes before you’re sure it’s OK to admit you heard it. Then you hear it again. It wears a nicked-up heart on its sleeve. It is rock 'n' roll without bravado.

This second studio album has something familiar for long-time fans all throughout it. Try 'Henry's Revenge.' Listen to ‘Guilt Trip' for notes of Bon Appetit.

But altogether this is a sweeter sound. A little more love-struck. Possibly wiser. There's a Christmas song. There's an almost Ska version of The Charlie Daniels Band classic, ‘Long Haired Country Boy’.

Howl-N-Madd by Lucky Find Productions (A documentary film about bluesman Bill "Howl-N-Madd" Perry)

New Kickstarter Campaign for a documentary on "Howl-N-Madd" Perry. Be one of the first to get a copy!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/24583616/howl-n-madd

“Howl-N-Madd,” Mississippi Blues Family Man is a 27 minute documentary presenting Bill Perry, his music, his family, and his Mississippi heritage. A companion piece to our award winning True Delta, this is the second in our series of documentary blues portraits heralding musicians who are keeping the blues alive.


The film celebrates Perry’s musical career by highlighting magnetic live performances, from deep down in Mississippi up to the Terra Blues Club in New York City, featuring Bill, his son Bill Perry, Jr., and his daughter, Sharo Perry and includes songs from his 7 albums. And it shows how Pauline Perry, who is unflagging in her devotion to her husband, embodies the spirit of the song he wrote for her after 45 years of marriage, “Delta Women,” who, as Perry sings, “know how to shake that thing.”


Even if you can’t make one of his live performances, this documentary will let you enjoy the full range of blues that “Howl-N-Madd” writes and sings—the slow, mournful sort and the juking and jumping kind. We are delighted to bring “Howl-N-Madd” to blues lovers everywhere.

Boozed 2007 Acid Blues



Genre: Rock
Rate: 192 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:43:06
Size: 59,22 MB

Germany

Rund 18 Monate nachdem Boozed mit ihrem zweiten Album "Tight pants" ihr Heimatkaff Bramsche mit einem unüberhörbaren Knall auf der Landkarte des Rock'n'Roll verewigten, liegt nun der Nachfolger auf dem Tisch. Räudig, gefährlich und mächtig wild beißt dieser Bastard um sich und sich im Ohr fest. Mit "Acid Blues" besetzen Boozed die Nische zwischen den wichtigsten Pfeilern der Rockgeschichte, des Bluesrock und des neuzeitlichen Rock 'n' Roll. Der neue, widerspenstige und mitreißende Sound behält durch die impulsive und druckvolle Produktion seine Ecken und Kanten und überzeugt so mit Biss und jugendlichem Charme. Der gezielte Einsatz von warmen Hammondorgel-Sounds, Mundharmonika und einem prägnanten, weiblichen Chor zeugt dabei von der Stilsicherheit, mit der Boozed sich bewegen, und den überaus beeindruckenden musikalischen Fähigkeiten der Band.
