STAR BLUES on 26th July 2015 at 22:00 joint jumpin

.. round your place/ No-one can ignore the persistent rain that has been waiting for the school children to get on holiday. Nice opportunity to slip in another selection from soon-to-be birthday boy Buddy Guy.  That new album of his must drop soooooon; it will have some famous names in duet (in keeping with the idea Buddy brought Bonnie Raitt for us).

Easy choice for gospel spot too - not that we ever need to apologise for Sister RT. Nor for the Soul Stirrers, one of the most potent examples of the simplicity of the human voice. Professor Harold Boggs added a vintage feel to the then recent Eric Clapton composition.

Our first segment also dallied among the JSP stable for some pretty robust modern blues that John Stedman did so well, especially when working with artists of the calibre of Johnnie Rawls (who was in top form for Deitra Farr). Harp fans were well served by Mojo Buford, Harmonica Shah and Eomot RaSun.  All three deserve wider exposure, the last named has just that one album and it had supporting cast such as Jimmy D Lane, Bob Stroger and Sam Carr (a stellar top-trumps hand in anyone's game).

The Johnnie Taylor selection was a direct steal of an idea off Facebook, it came as a birthday surprise reminder of my first introduction to his great voice. OV Wright was one of Robert Cray's biggest influences; he only left us with few sides and he had Michael Toles on guitar for his blues run-through for us. Hank Ballard has a current survey of his Midnighters singles out on Jasmine, there was a joyful swing to his singing and it set up our introduction of a classic by Calvin Boze.

The earliest blues stars were the women who came from the vaudeville / music hall / gospel traditions: the Document imprint issued two volumes as a survey of what they called Territory singers and we took one apiece from those projects. Tampa Red was sometimes billed as the Guitar Wizard and Ace has just put out a twofer survey of his post-war RCA victor sides. Though that blessed kazoo still parps intrusively on one or two songs, the guitar playing more than makes up for it. Our pair had sidemen such as Walter Horton and Little Johnnie Jones anchored by Odie Payne and Ransom Knowling in the engine room.

Recently we've put the spotlight on blues players rarely heard on Blues radio in Britain; we continued this week with Andrew Brown, Guitar Crusher and Calvin Frazier. You can be sure there'll be more in upcoming shows. Sunday at 10pm (BST) round your place will reveal who's next - until then take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you
