Well, here we are in the midst of our festivities, but still not forgetting this opportunity to wish you a very bluesy welcome to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling. As ever, we brought a whole hour of the best of the blues, with a selection of new releases, some forthcoming releases and some ‘seasoned’ favourites.

Among the new and forthcoming stuff was multi-instrumentalist, Michael Jerome Browne from Montreal, Australian band Lachy Doley with something from their album ‘Lovelight’, due for release in 2017 and Detroit bluesman Marcus Malone with his ‘Better Man’ album due for official release in April.

From the feedback on last week’s show, it seems you liked hearing from German duo, the Down Home Percolators, so we featured another track from their latest album ‘Homebrew’ and we revisited the new releases by Slim Butler, JW Jones and The Lost In Paris Blues Band . But, we kicked off there with a great opener from Deborah Coleman with ‘Travellin’ South’ . . .michael-jerome-browne

A big thanks went out this week to Phillipe Rodriguez down there in Limoges, in France for pointing us to a very fine live performance by the excellent Jim Byrnes with his take on ‘Crossroads Blues’ . . . and good stuff it was too!
There were a few memories conjured up again with some ‘seasoned’ favourites too, including Corey Harris, UK veterans Doc K’s Blues Band, The Siegal Schwall Band and harpman Rod Piazza. Indeed, there was plenty more we could have included, but we ran out of time. So, with a worldly grin, we collected up the records and CDs and were ready to head for the door . . . but not before thanking everyone for their good company for this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling and promising to meet up again same time same place next week . . . . until then ‘have fun’!

Listen here to the latest edition of The Blues Come Calling:

.
Well, here we are, back again and ready to rustle up an hour of the best of the blues on The Blues Come Calling. So, if you like the blues, you’re definitely in the right place and, believe me, there’s plenty of new blues releases popping up just lately, which must be a healthy sign for the blues, generally. The show features new stuff by Sari & The Engine Room, The Bluesbenders, The Alex P Suter Band, The Jon Storey Band and Albany Down. . . . and there’s more, but that will have to be for the next show.

Since the last edition of the show, I’ve been rummaging in the dark dusty corners of the blues library and found a few great albums that blinked in the light. Indeed, we started off with one of those from Coco Montoya and ‘Back In A Cadillac’, which first appeared back in 2002, but has re-appeared on a recent compilation titled ‘Feelin’ Good Blues’. Then, we went back to 1993 for a track from the wonderful Larry McCray . . . my choice was ‘Not That Much’ and I found it on his 1993 album Delta Hurricane. . . and so can you . . .

Dangerous mood . . . Albany Down (The Outer Reach
Back In A Cadillac – Coco Montoya (Feelin’ Good Blues – 2015)
Not That Much – Larry McCray (Delta Hurricane – 1993)
Don’t Ya Tell – The Alex P Suter Band (All For Loving You – 2016)
Shake What Your Mama Gave You – Henry Butler & Corey Harris ( Feelin’ Good Blues – 2015)
Stop In The Name Of Love – Sari & The Engine Room
Dangerous Mood – Paul Cox (Good To Me – 2005)
Like A Bullet – Albany Down (The Outer Reach – 2016)

Pinetop’s Pick . . . . with Arfa PinetopThe Jon Storey Band (Blues & Rocket Fuel
Come Back Baby – Doctor Ross

Shufflin’ the blues . . .
Stumblin’ Blind – The Jon Storey Band (Blues & Rocket Fuel – 2016)
Rocket 88 – Bob Hall & George Green (Shufflin’ The Blues – 1991)
Saturday Night – Steven Troch (Nice & Greasy -2016)
Wild Turkey – The Bluesbenders (Gargoyle Schmargoyle – 2016)
Dust My Broom – Freddie King (Getting Ready – 1971)
Talking Woman Blues – The Blues Band (Itchy Feet (Remastered) – 2012)The Blue Chevys (Turn It Back
Lovin ‘ Fool – The Blue Chevys (Turn It Back – 2016)

Now, you can’t really ignore an album called ‘Gargoyle Schmargoyle’, so we didn’t. It’s the latest album by The Bluesbenders and we played ‘Wild Turkey’ from that album, along with a welcome preview track from the forthcoming new album, ‘The Outer Reach’, by London-based band, Albany Down. The album is more rock than blues, but I did think track ‘Like A Bullet’ had more of a bluesy feel, so we played that.

A big thanks to The Alex P Suter Band for pointing me to their new album ‘All For Loving The Bluesbenders (Gargoyle SchmargoyleYou’, which I’ve much enjoying since it arrived here. The tracks offer various shades of the blues and I particularly liked one called ‘Don’t Ya Tell’. . . and I hope you do too.

The latest album by The Jon Storey Band, called ‘Blues & Rocket Fuel’, has plenty of great listening, including my choice from it,‘Stumblin’ Blind’. But, all too soon it was almost time to go, so we squeezed in ‘Lovin’ Fool’, a raucous and rocking little number from The Blue Chevys’ new album titled ‘Turn It Back. Then it was all over for another week . . . just time to say our farewells and hope that you’ll be here the next time The Blues Come Calling. Until then . . . remember . . . have fun!

Listen here to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling:

Well, we arrived in time (but only just) for this week’s edition of The Blues Come CallingPaul Thorn - What The Hell Is Goin’ On and with a pile of records and CDs and I was counting all the friendly faces being there too. So, with a small flourish, we launched a whole hour of the blues, starting with a big favourite from Buddy Guy and his spirited version of ‘Show Me The Money’ . . . and it all rolled on from there!

There were plenty of new releases and previews of forthcoming releases, as well as a few old favourites. On the subject of ‘old’ favourites, we caught up again this week with the esteemed Arfa Pinetop, who arrived with a debonair saunter and cheeky smile . . . but then, he already knew his choice for this week’s choice on Pinetop’s Pick .

Well, time nearly beat us this week! I had a small panic and quickly re-calculated the running times, but it all worked out OK. So, with an added sense of purpose, I got ready to head for the door, but not before clearing up the records and CDs, putting the smiling picture of the station boss back on the wall and waving everyone a cheery farewell . . . then playing out with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band’s version of ‘Good Morning Little Schoolgirl’. So until the next time The Blues Come Calling . . . . have fun!

Well, after the familiar intro theme, we kicked off The Blues Come Calling this week with power blues guitar man Brad Wilson and a track from his latest album Power Blues Live and it was a top choice, ‘All Kinds Of Fool. Now there seem to be plenty of new blues releases around just lately, so we were spoilt for choice, but we followed on with another from the new releases . . . . this time it was Jimmy Adler with ‘I Can’t Wait’, which you can find that on his new album Grease Alley . . .

But, we had run out of time on this week’s Blues Come Calling, so there was nothing left to do but head for the door, having first cleared up the records and CDs, put the smiling picture of the station boss back on the wall and waved everyone a cheery farewell. Then we were away, at least until same time same place next week. . . . . and remember . . . . have fun!

.
Well, with a big bluesy ‘hello’, we kicked off this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling with a great favourite here by slide guitar maestro Roy Rogers. He’s no stranger to our playlists, but always welcome, as were The Blues Spiders, arriving from the Thames Delta (Southend-on-Sea) to make their welcome debut on the show with ‘Party Girl’.

Now, we need no excuse to play something from Charlie, Musslewhite, but it was Charlie’s birthday this past week, so that was good enough reason. There was also some lovely blues from the debut album ‘Sweet Surrender’ by Lauren Housley and something from the winners of this year’s Blues Foundation ‘Best Band’ category, The Delgado Brothers . . . . and more . . .

When the Blues Catch Up To You
Spent Money – Roy Rogers (Slide Zone – 1995)

Bayou Vista Blues – The New Rock Ensemble (Southern Rock – 2011)

Plenty of real treats, including a preview of something new from the new album by Jeff Healey, ‘Heal My Soul’, then a track from new album by the Supersonic Blues Machine, ‘West of Flushing, South of Frisco’ which featured the much admired Walter Trout. But, all too soon, we were running out of time and we played out with the New Rock Ensemble and a rocking little item from their 2011 album ‘Southern Rock’.

Well, we were back this week with a big bluesy welcome for our latest edition of The Blues Come Calling. The past week has brought the return of some friendly faces, the odd birthday and some great new music. But, there was also some sadness too, with the news about the passing of Glenn Frey, so I pulled out one of his bluesy numbers to remember him in our own way.

To prove the point about just how much I’ve been enjoying this week’s music discoveries, we kicked off with The Five Altered Blues Band and their swinging blues,’ I’m In Deep’ and followed up with guitarist/singer Keith Thompson’s 2006 release ‘Preachin’ The Blues’.

Preachin’ The Blues . . .Mick Clarke - Ruff 'n' Roar
I’m In Deep – Five Altered Blues Band (Cryin’ Mercy – 2014)
Preachin’ The Blues – Keith Thompson (Independence – 2006)
Born in Chicago – RG Winfield & Double Shuffle (2015)
Who’s Been Sleeping In My Bed – Glenn Frey (Solo Collection – 1995)
Southern Rag – Blind Blake (Southern Rag – 2008)
The Thrill Is Gone – Catfish (When BB Sings The Blues – 2016)
Good Morning Blues – The Mick Clarke Band (Ruff ‘N’ Roar – 2016)Glenn Frey

Pinetop’s Pick
Baby, Baby, Baby – Jimmy Witherspoon (Baby, Baby, Baby – 1990)

Someone New . . .
I’m Your Child – Nikki James (The Album – 2015)
Someone New – Larry Garner (Louisiana Swamp Blues Vol 3 – 2015)
Purple – Danny Bryant’s Red Eye Band (Watching You – 2015)
Hey John – Daniel Smith & Friends (Keys To The Highway – 2016)Nikki James
I’m Going Down The Line – Ear Hooker (Two Bugs & A Roach – 1990)

Like all good things, it had to come to an end and Earl Hooker brought us to the end of this edition of The Blues Comes Calling. So, we headed for home, but not before we tidied up the records and CDs, put the smiling picture of the station boss back on the wall and waved everyone a cheery farewell. At least until next week, which is when, hopefully, you’ll be back again, same time same place when once again The Blues Come Calling. Until then . . . . have fun!

Listen here to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling:

.
Well, a big bluesy welcome to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling and it’s been a great week for re-discovering some old favourites and listening to some excellent new releases. We pulled out some 50s blues from the great Tampa Red and stumbled across a great blues track tucked away on an album by a band called Boukou Groove  that really fits into another genre. Our regular guest, Arfa Pinetop, brought along some Chicago blues from Fleetwood Mac, who were contemporaries of UK blues band Savoy Brown. By some quirky coincidence,  this week’s playlist includes a new album by the much revered bluesmen, Kim Simmons along with Savoy Brown titled ‘The Devil To Pay’ and we kicked off the show with their track ‘Snakin’’ . . .

I’m done . . .cecile doo kingue - anyone
Snakin’ Kim Simmonds & Savoy Brown (The Devil To Pay – 2015)
I’m Done – Jay Stollman (Room For One More – 2015)
Evalina – Tampa Red (Tampa Red Vol.15 – 2005)
Can’t Come Back – Boukou Groove (Let The Groove Ride – 2015)
The Killing Line – Mike Brookfield (Love Breaks The Fall – 2015)
I Don’t Want To Leave You – Nikki James (The Album – 2015)
Years Of Tears – Jim Suhler & Monkey Beat (Tijuana Bible – 2009)

Come back home . . .
I Can’t Be Satisfied – Michael Messer’s Mitra (Call Of The Blues – 2016)
Anybody Listening – Cecile Doo-Kingue (Anyone Listening Part 2 – 2016)
Roll ‘Em Pete – Neville Dickie (Back To Boogie – 1975)
I Pity The Fool – The Mannish Boys (Bowie 1965 – 2006)
Come Back Home – Lance Lopez (Handmade Music – 2011)

I was more than a little surprised to hear it played by Neville Dickie on a blues radio show from New Orleans last week, but as I’m a sucker for some boogie woogie, I included it in the playlist. I also included a tribute to David Bowie which may have been a shock to some folks to find out that he started out singing blues and R&B. So, I dug out a track of his from his time with The Mannish Boys . . . Bobby Bland’s hit ‘I Pity The Fool’. But we closed the show with some head nodding, foot tapping blues from Lance Lopez and track, appropriately titled, ‘Come Back Home’.

Then it was time to tidy up the records and CDs, put the smiling picture of the station boss back on the wall and wave everyone a cheery farewell . . . at least until next week. Because, we’ll be back, same time, same place when once again The Blues Come Calling. Until then . . . have fun!
