The prewar slide-guitar master Mississippi Fred McDowell didn't get his due 'til the late '60s. This 1971 performance at the Gaslight in Greenwich Village was intended for broadcast on Columbia University radio; nine of these selections ended up on the 1972 LP Live in New York, but this remastered 2-CD set brings you many more riveting performances from that show: Shake 'Em On Down, Someday Baby, Baby Please Don't Go, Get Right Church, Red Cross Store, Good Mornin' Little Schoolgirl, My Babe,...

2 CD set with 38 Tracks Including the best of his Solo and session work. 18-year-old Curtis Ousley arrived in New York in 1952, already in possession of some fearsome chops on his tenor saxophone. He’d wailed strong enough in his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas to earn the regal stage moniker of King Curtis. A few years later, he’d replace Sam "The Man" Taylor as New York’s first-call studio sax man, cutting loose with crystalline solos on countless R&B and rock and roll recordings. Curtis ...

13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS WHY THEY ARE REVERED:  Featuring the yelping vocals and visionary, occasionally demented lyrics of Roky Erickson, the 13th Floor Elevators were one of the original acid rock bands. Formed in Texas in the mid-’60s, the Elevators started as a garage rock outfit, scoring their one and only modest national hit with You’re Gonna Miss Me. While Erickson’s loopy persona and Tommy Hall’s odd “electric jug” percussion were the band’s most distinguishing features, several members o...

Although Nashville is best known for its gargantuan contribution to country music history. Music City also hosted a thriving rhythm and blues community during the post-war era. John Richbourg, a top-rated deejay on Nashville's 50,000 watt R&B station WLAC was a prime mover and shaker on that scene, especially after he hooked up with Sound Stage 7 Records as a producer during the mid-60s. In that role Richbourg helmed seminal hits for many of the label's best soul singers, including Lynchb...

One of the most successful groups of all time, Led Zeppelin has often been taken to task for using the work of other artists without citing the source, particularly blues artists. But critics have also drawn attention to Zep's use of the work of folk and rock artists as well. If you are a Led Zeppelin fan you can broaden your own horizons by listening to Zep's influence in other genres. If you are a Led Zeppelin detractor, then you can take pride in listening to the "true" originals - but bea...
