Early 40's to late 60's.2 of my favorite 45's right now areRev. Utah Smith -- two wings (there are at least 2 versions of this song....both killer)and from Hollygrove Records website. Under Gospel, scroll down to "Whole Truth" and listen to " Can You Lose By Following God."
SD-054 - Gospel's Queen - Gloria Griffin [6/71]
SD-054 - Gospel's Queen - Gloria Griffin [6/71]I got this LP the other week & it has 2 or 3 real cool tracks, but the rest is pretty slow & blah, nice arrangements, but not real awesome. I also bought a Rev. Alex Bradford LP on Chess or Checker that needle dropped ok, but I haven't explored it any further yet. I love the blues, I don't know nearly as much about gospel though.
this one is highly recommended.. as is most from his catalogue during the 60s. bobby bland is one of my favorite blues singers, along with howlin wolf. his 70s stuff is pretty nice too, but not on the same level of rawness from what i have heard. I have a 45 of 'Ain't No Love In The Heart Of the City' though, and that is
JP, ever hear the instrumental cover of BBB's Rockin' in the Same Old Boat by E.J.'s LTD. on BackBeat? Flip (A-Side) is Black Bull. Two good sides, despite the absense of the man himself.
you guys added some great musicians. I could add...-J.B. Lenoir
This guy is blowing me way lately. Doesn't have the angry... raspy blues voice.... super suave... favorite blues singer right now hands down.
