With East Side Slim
East Side Slim takes you cruising on many musical roads, with all leading back to the crossroad - the blues. Come on along for the ride on Rhythm Highways. You'll hear American music - music that swings, rolls and comes from the soul. Tune in to hear blues, R&B, gospel, swing, soul, rock 'n' roll, jazz and roadhouse, even the occasional honky tonk or western swing song. Rhythm Highways - it's an East Side groove.
Cephas & Wiggins Brownsville
From Richmond To Atlanta Bullseye Blues 2000
This album is a compilation of 12 songs gathered from the duo's 3 Flying Fish Records releases, recorded between 1982 and 1992, prior to their tenure with Alligator Records.
Norman Taylor Across 110th Street
Meditations on the Blues Soul Stew Records 2020
I had been meaning to revisit this album, but sadly it sort of got lost in my library among all constant influx of new releases. How about this for a revisioning of Bobby Womack's classic soul side, folks? Very cool, indeed.
James Carter & The Mighty Stars God Got His Eyes On You
Rock The Church: Delta Gospel Anthology Blues Interactions/P-Vine 1994
This is a wonderful compilation about which I know little as the notes are about 98% in Japanese. Tracks recorded in Jackson, MS between 1962-1974 by Jimmie D. Ammons, Delta Recording Company.
Johnny Ray Daniels Something Within Me N
Whatever You Need Bible & Tire Recording Co. 2022
Whoo wee this is a good album! Elder Daniels backed by the Sacred Soul Sound Sections, babies!
Reverend Cleophus Robinson Fence Around Me L
I Shall Know Him Peacock Gospel Classics MCA 1999
There's a guest vocalist on this song, but I haven't been able to find her name on the internet. I know it's on the back of the original album rather than this compilation, so I'm working on it!
Rev. Willingham and the Swanee Quintet That's the Spirit
The Godfather's R&B James Brown's Productions 1962-67 BGP/Ace 2008
Released on both Crescent and Federal Records in 1966. There's no doubt at all that James Brown had a hand in this one.
Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado Navigation Blues N
Navigation Blues Provogue 2022
This just might be the finest album in Risager catalog to date - it's very good, and dials back the 'heavy' rock sound some in favor of a terrific bluesy roots soul feel. Wonderful new music out of Denmark.
Marcos Coll & Adrian Costa y Los Homebreakers Love Left Behind
Home Made Blues Gaztelupeko Hotsak S.L 2004
Wonderful blues music out of Spain - Marcos Coll is playing harmonicas throughout and Adrian Costa sings and plays guitar.
Sugar Brown Lousy Dime
It's A Blues World...Calling All Blues Independent 2018
Blues out of Canada, closing out a set of International blues. Everyone around the World loves the blues because, well, the Blues is truth.
Revorgandrum Hang 'em High
Revorgandrum self-released 2007
Rev Horton Heat in B3 organ trio mode. Jim Heath on guitar, Tim Alexander, B3; Todd Soesbe, drums.
John Németh Sexy Ways N
May Be the Last Time Nola Blue Records 2022
Nemeth and friends bringing new life to one of Hank Ballard's finest tunes.
GA-20 I Let Someone In N
Crackdown Karma Chief Records 2022
I'm working through this earthy new new album from GA-20, a band out of the Boston, Mass area. Great stuff from this tough trio.
Joe Louis Walker Werewolves of London (feat. Waddy Wachtel)
Eclectic Electric Cleopatra Blues 2021
Cool music off the most recent album from JLW, ah OOOOO, Werewolves of London. Knowing what werewolves can do, London can have 'em, keep 'em away from me!
Robert Cray With Albert Collins The Dream
Showdown Alligator Records 1985
To this day, Showdown! is one of the best selling albums in Alligator's catalog. Albert Collins, Robert Cray and Johnny Copeland - nice! The Dream features Cray on vocals and rhythm gtr, Collins on solo gtr.
Scrapomatic He Called My Name
Sidewalk Caesars Landslide Records 2008
This is a band that never received the attention it deserved. I'm better many more people would recognize singer Mike Mattison from his years with Tedeschi-Trucks than from his own work with Paul Olsen and Scrapomatic. BTW: Derek Trucks played lead on this song.
Alan Wilson Poor Moon
The Blind Owl Severn Records, Inc. 2013
This is a terrific 2 disc compilation of Canned Heat's music with the focus on the songs and performances of Alan Wilson.
Omar & The Howlers Under My Spell
Zoltar's Walk Big Guitar Music 2017
If you're from a Gulf Coast state - Omar's is MS - then at some point you have to cover Under My Spell. Great earthy blues 'n' roll from Oman and his bunch of Howlers.
Blind Mississippi Morris You Know I Like That
You Know I Like That Icehouse Records 2001
BMM is a wonderful, rootsy, harp blower and singer out of Memphis. He's one of those amazing regionally recognized artists that deserves much great recognition.
Andrew Alli Hard Workin' Man
Hard Workin' Man Ellersoul 2021
Andrew Alli is one of the finest younger harmonica players working today, and he's a tough, pleasing singer as well.
Carey Bell My Love Strikes Like Lightning
Good Luck Man Alligator Records & Artist Mgmt., Inc. 1997
If you all knew how much work I had to go to in order to retrieve this CD from my music library you'd be donating DOUBLE what you already do to KDHX. Ha! Carey Bell - one of THE great blues harp players of all time!
George Scott Family Tree
Find Someone To Love (Remastered) Essential Media Group 2015
Album originally released in 1971 on Maple Records, produced by Johnny Brantley. This George Scott is NOT the GS from the BB of Alabama.
El Michel's Affair Walk On By
Walk On By...A Tribute to Isaac Hayes Truth & Soul Records 2008
Truth and Soul and Daptone sprang from the same roots in NYC, with musicians working for both labels. El Michel is Leon Michels who seems to play about every instrument put in front of him - and the Affair is a dozen or so like-minded friends.
