Roadhouse Blues News – Hot Blues In August

It’s a typically hot and humid August day here…….perfect time to be inside and letting you know about some even hotter roadhouse blues!

Roadhouse Blues Albums I am spinnin’ this summer that you will rock you (link to a single included)

Mike Zito – Resurrection I’ll Make Love To You

Mike is one of the contemporary roadhouse blues’ great singers, songwriters, guitar players, producers, and now co-owner of Gulf Coast Records who just keep rollin’ out awesome roadhouse tunes!

Billy F. Gibbons – Hardware She’s On Fire

Well into his seventies, Billy has lost none of his verve and the man can just crank it out!

Tedeschi Trucks Band – Layla Revisited (Live) Little Wing

They cover the 1970 Derek and the Dominos album live and it is awesome! Features Trey Anastasio (Phish) and Doyle Bramall II on guitars alongside the fabulous voice of Susan Tedeschi and slide guitar wizardry of Derek Trucks.

Sean Chambers – That’s What I’m Talkin’ About (Tribute to Hubert Sumlin) Rockin’ Daddy

One of blues rock’s great guitar players pays tribute to his mentor Hubert Sumlin and also dedicates the album to the memory of Ben Elliot, a legendary music producer, who died shortly after finishing the album with Sean.

Blues Traveler – Traveler’s Blues Roadhouse Blues

An awesome blues album by John Popper and company. They get help from Keb’ Mo, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Warren Haynes and crank out a great version of the signature tune for the Ben Vee Roadhouse Blues!!

Cactus – Tightrope Papa Was a Rolling Stone

Carmine Appice continues to pound the skins to perfection. I have been a big fan since his days with Vanilla Fudge back in the 1960’s. I love this cover of The Temptations number 1 hit from 1972.

Andy Lindquist – Stand.abide.endure The River Queen

Andy is a native of North Dakota and is now ensconced in the hot and humid climes of Florida. This album of one of the great blues rock releases of 2021.

The Brothers – March 10, 2020 Madison Square Garden (Live) Midnight Rider

Recorded live right before the pandemic closed down most of the world, the alumni of the Allman Brothers keep the jams flowin’ led by Warren Haynes.

Bishop Gun – Gypsy Cadillac Ain’t it a Shame

From Natchez, Mississippi, Bishop Gunn is one of my “break out” artists of 2021. The album is an incredible mixture of Rhythm & Blues and southern rock AND he has an incredible R&B voice as you will hear on this tune!

Bernie Marsden – Kings Me And My Guitar

He was a mainstay of Whitesnake back in the day and has evolved into a master bluesman with a touch on the guitar that few can rival!

Jimmy Barnes – Flesh & Blood This Is the Truth

Jimmy is simply one of the great voices of his generation. Just kick back and drift way as ya listen!

New Tunes to be released in the next couple of months

Doobie Brothers – Liberte

I heard the first single, Oh Mexico, the other day. Can’t wait to get my hand on the album when released in October. If the single is any indication, it will be a great roadhouse release.

Altered Five Blues Band – Holler If You Hear Me

Jeff Taylor is another of my favorite blues singers. The band is allowing us to spin the album now on BMFR. It will officially be released in early September.

In Remembrance

Dusty Hill – He was out on tour with ZZ Top this past month and wasn’t feeling well so he went home to recuperate. Dusty passed away in his sleep on July 28, 2021. Rest in peace brother…..you brought us all some damn fine times and that insistent bass that was a signature of the little band from Texas! La Grange
