The October Beachin’ Blues

I’m down along the beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama this week. Here are some tunes that we are listenin’ to while drinking….eating oyster poboys…jambalaya…nookie burgers…red beans & rice…and oh…some more drinkin’….. (links to Spotify in blue)

Alabama Gulf Coast

Arsen ShamakhovSunset Beach

Couldn’t sing it bettah myself!! Arsen hails from British Columbia and has a hot new album, Rain City Blues.

Arthur “Big Boy” CrudupKeep On Drinkin’

Arthur inspired Elvis and was one badass delta bluesman!

Pinetop Perkins5-10-15 Hours (featuring Carolyn Wonderland)

Recorded in his mid nineties….Pinetop is one of the all time best.

Albert KingRoadhouse Blues

Some badass lowdown grindin’ blues from the master himself.

JJ Grey & MofroTen Thousand Islands

Some swamp blues are perfect for chillin’ on the beach.

HeavydrunkIf I Loved You Hard Enough

Absolutely one of my favorite tunes of 2019, the lyrics are modern Shakespeare and a vivid picture of a dysfunctional and powerful love.

Beth HartThankful

I am so thankful for my family and friends and the life I have…..Beth Hart sings my thanks bettah than I can express on her brilliant new album War In My Mind.

Hundred Seventy SplitHelp Me Baby

Two of the original members of Ten Years After have a new band and lay down a powerful rendition of their blues rock classic.

Tony Joe WhiteThe Beach Life

If Tony Joe White can’t get ya to chill out on the beach….it can’t be done!

_____________________________________________________________________________

A note about streaming (which is great for exposing new artists and songs)…..it may surprise you to know that for every 10,000 streams of a song, the artist may make as little as $40 (US). But when you buy their CDs, they can make a decent living plying their craft. SO…….if ya love the music…use your favorite site and download the albums. And if you go see the artists live….buy those CDs, tee shirts, and hats at the show…….helps them defray road expenses and, in many cases, eat for the night.
