Alexis Koerner was a British blues musician and radio broadcaster, who has sometimes been referred to as "a founding father of British blues". A major influence on the sound of the British music scene in the 1960s, Korner was instrumental in bringing together various English blues musicians. Without Alexis Korner, there still might have been a British blues scene in the early 1960s, but chances are that it would have been very different from the one that spawned the Rolling Stones, nurtured the early talents of Eric Clapton, and made it possible for figures such as John Mayall to reach an audience.

John Lee Hooker developed a “talking blues” style that became his trademark. Though similar to the early Delta tradition, his metrically free approach and unique sound would make him a staple of the Detroit blues tradition. Often called the “King of the Boogie,” Hooker's driving, rhythmic approach to guitar playing has become an integral part of the blues. His thunderous electric guitar sounded raw, while his basic technique was riveting.

Blues Masters - The Essential Blues Collection: Vol.1 - Vol.15 (1992-1993)

Blues | FLAC (tracks)+Cue+Log | 3,97 Gb + 5% Recovery | Scans 371 Mb
Label: Rhino | Release Year: 1992-1993

The Blues Masters series, much to Rhino`s credit, adopts an expansive definition of blues, allowing the likes of Count Basie, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Muddy Waters and even Louis Prima admission. There is none of the purist`s quibbling over strict 12-bar form or the relative significance of prewar and postwar styles.
What Rhino delivers instead is the blues in all its myriad guises. This music is old and new, black and white, acoustic and electric, folksy and jazzy, performed by women and men, and yet it is all still blues at its core.

My good friend Harpdog Brown has a new CD out. He’s got a smokin’ band playing and he’s singing the real deal, old school blues just like you want to hear it. It’s easy to tell from listening that Harpdog knows what he’s doing and loves what he’s doing. I’m not applauding this CD just because I happen to have the honor of joining Harpdog on a tune…it really is some great smokin’ blues. Every tune is a winner. If you love the blues you won’t go wrong with this wonderful session. I LOVE the killer guitar playing! It’s hard to say what my favorite is but I gotta say I REALLY like Must’ve Been The Devil. I’ve always liked that tune and Harpdog does it great. I love his harp playing on this one especially. Home Is Where The Harp Is has a cool 8-bar blues groove and I love 8-bar blues progression. Fool Like Me, Hayward Boogie, Cloud Full Of Rain, Fine Little Girl, are all fine and For Better or Worse has especially good lyrics.

By its nature, boogie-woogie doesn’t change, so why should Jools Holland – its leading advocate in the new millennium; hell, its leading advocate in the post-punk world – switch things up for Rockinghorse, his 2010 album with his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra? The sound remains the same, and so do many of the songs – the standards “Got My Mojo Working,” “This Train,” “Tain’t Nobody’s Bizness If I Do,” “What a Wonderful World,” and “You Are so Beautiful” are all hauled out – and guests as far-ranging as Allen Toussaint and Alison Moyet, Chas & Dave and Michael McDonald.

Country, Americana, Singer-Songwriter | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:02:32 | 143 MB
Label: Crooked Creek Records | Release Year: 2017

Something about Morgan Haner touched my soul immediately. His music is hard to describe. Definitely some folk elements, but also has a good bit of noise and distortion at times. The dissonance is controlled enough to actually act as another instrument. It is exquisite in presentation and Haner has the ability to pull away and restrain himself at just the right moment. Morgan Haner is also a sound engineer and that skill set is displayed prominently on Transmitter Blues. You may not know what good sound engineering sounds like, but you will know when it is absent. It is clearly present on this release and that adds to the satisfaction of these great tracks.

"He is a storyteller, Bluesman, and a master interpreter of modern American roots music. Randy McQuay II sings from the heart, plays guitar with abandon, and blows harmonica like he’s from another planet." - Lan Nichols President, Cape Fear Blues Society Life in North Carolina and passion for music, culture, and art led Randy to be a roots musician and songwriter. Traveling solo or with his band around the Southeast region if the U.S. since age of sixteen, he has gained chops, experience, and notoriety. He has an aggressive, soulful, and sultry voice that lures the listener into original, heartfelt lyrics. His acoustic style is derived from claw-hammer and Travis picking styles with added percussion. Like an original troubadour, he harnesses the harmonica around his neck. Adding fast and sweeping single-note lines over rhythm guitar and footdrums he creates the sound of a full band.
