STAR BLUES on 28th October 2012 at 22:00

Whereas our previous show prohibited entry if you had an electric guitar about your person, last night we only let you in if you had one. Just my shameless excuse to celebrate the vintage 50s and 60s players who defined the sound of our music. Hopefully a nice surprise for listeners who may have thought we'd tarry awhile in the Noughties blues-rock denizens.

Joe Louis Walker has been round the block a few times and the only way he's not a superstar is that he ain't as pretty as Robert Cray. I've just about everything he's recorded and no two of his projects are the same. He got armfuls of awards for his "Blues of the Month Club" album and it seemed a fitting opener to STAR BLUES. Then straight back to an era where recording engineers carried clipboards and wore white coats and handlebar moustaches. They almost fainted when Eric Clapton got out his Vox AC30 amp and put it on a chair for his first album for John Mayall. He was loud with a capital *F* and they were about to pull the plug. Luckily Gus Dudgeon was on hand to save the sessions and as far as I'm concerned these were EC's finest sides - he truly played as if his very life depended on it. Otis Grand now has his most satisfying project in 20 years on the starting blocks. Like Dudgeon Otis  has recorded his semi acoustic loud, front and centre on his "Blues 65" album. Our choice "Washed My Hand In Muddy Water" heavily featured Sugar Ray Norcia's voice and harp and Grand is happy to share the Kudos with him.

Buddy Guy was an acknowledged influence on Clapton, who fully expected Cream to function as a power trio in the Buddy Guy tradition. Guy's 1962 song "When My Left Eye Jumps" was a perfect example of why - on his day - Buddy could cut anyone. One of the other West Side Chicago masters was Otis Rush. We found him in 1958 for his COBRA single "Double Trouble” Both Rush and Guy had a certain edgy menace to their playing - a style taken to another level by Pat Hare (a troubled man, who started at Sun Records, did time in Muddy Waters band and died in prison). Our other guest who ironically ended his days behind bars was Calvin Leavy. His "Cummins Prison Farm" is thought by many to be the final "proper" blues record of them all. (They subscribe to a theory that blues ended in 1970).

Our 1001 feature was a hit for James Brown in 1967 and a track Albert King cut for Stax in 1969. King is deliciously funky as he stings relentlessly on top of a matchless exhibition of drumming from Al Jackson. Ace added the track as a bonus to their reissue of the "Years Go By" album. While thinking of James Brown, the axe chair was held down by Jimmy Nolen between 1965 and 1970 (remember "Papas Got A Brand New Bag"?). In 1958 he was inked by Federal for some terrific singles, I've made it my business to get them all since discovering his solo work in my earlier treasure trove from pastures North.

Larry Davis and Fenton Robinson can be treated as synonyms for quality and class. Davis did work for Virgo ably kitted out with Fenton's guitar. Mickey Baker is still with us and there's a splendid anthology of his 50s and 60s assists out on Rev-ola: any of the 31 tracks would be a gem, especially the partnership with Larry Dale on "After Hours Blues". Robert Randolph had an album celebrating the sacred steel tradition of the lap steel guitar, we took "Keep Your Lamp Trimmed" as our gospel outing. For obvious reasons we skipped over a piano offering but a couple of fabulous ladies kept us on topic - Beverly "Guitar" Watkins with "Baghdad Blues" on Music Master and the Atlantic cash in of an early track by Barbara Lynn as soon as she looked likely to get star status. I think I may have said before (once or twice or more) that electric blues guitar gets no better than T-Bone Walker and Albert Collins runs him mighty close second in my affections; add in Pee Wee Crayton and the job is almost done.

Both B. B. King and Luther Allison were easy choices and I held back just enough time to go to Elmore James for "Standing At The Crossroads". Then our first STAR BLUES of the winter was done (you did do the clock didn't you?). Our plastic duck family has been reunited and I am already lined up as stunt double to George Clooney in those difficult and dangerous romantic scenes with Angelina Jolie. He can't carry of a white tee shirt like me. They'll only be dangerous if you let Lady Blue find out. With fingers crossed for that I'll report for duty again next Sunday at 10pm (GMT) if you'll be at your place. Until then take care of yourselves and take care of those that take of you.

STAR BLUES on 21st October 2012 at 22:00

A blues show without electric guitars is not the same as a blues show lacking in fretboard wizardary. Just ask Buddy Moss, Big Bill Broonzy or Tampa Red. Our show was a companion piece to our August Bank Holiday Monday special. The pre-war recordings of the masters of the genre were balanced with a number of tracks from Living Blues magazine's feature called "Next Generation of Acoustic Blues".

Valerie June is in that category - she has striking dreadlocks, distinctive voice and skills on banjolele - and was recently profiled in both Observer and Guardian newspapers. She has yet to record under her own name - due in the Spring I'm told - but I tracked down a couple of guest appearances. One is on a Nina Simone tribute album, the other is a water themed project with John Forte. Little Joe Ayers was in the LB spotlight and purveys blues in a refreshingly purist Delta tradition. His "Backatchya" album has already started to pick up awards and will be a contender for more.

Chaney Sims is with her dad, Bill Sims Jr, in the Heritage Blues Orchestra - an outfit with a playing style that sounds like it goes back to the era of the Mississippi Sheiks. The lineup has no bass player but their songs are extremely rhythmic and exude atmosphere. Though the Carolina Chocolate Drops weren't in the magazine, we similarly admire their authentic acoustic approach. Our own Mighty Mark Peters is a big fan who thinks  I've not got video of his cavorting to their jigs (just not put it on YT yet....) They got known through the Music Maker label and charity; Shelton Powe similarly benefited from their help with finding him a guitar and some odd gigs following his sudden redundancy from his day job which forced him to sell his axe. Shelton plays nimbly in the Carolina style and has just put out his debut full disc through Music Maker. His story is told in the magazine and ought to remind all of us how thin the line is between getting by and not (and how crossing that line is never done by choice).

Blind Boy Paxton was the last of the clutch mentioned in Living Blues. He's just 22 and went blind at sixteen. He has said he doesn't listen to music made since 1934 and he has carved out a unique position as fervent supporter of the minstrel/troubadour method. Songs from that era were part of an oral tradition, never written down and rarely recorded. Paxton hates the political correctness that inhibits free discussion of coon music (to use his description). He intends the listener should feel uncomfortable when he as an African American plays them: the PC approach to thinking assumes the audience cannot put the songs in a historical context and that the world can have changed. Some work still to do IMHO. A prodigious talent way beyond his years of whom we will hear much more. Next time someone says blues is dead with no future or relevance, just say Blind Boy Paxton.

There are ofcourse other blues magazines, just as there are many blues radio shows - we don't claim to be better than them just different. Ethel Waters and Johnny Temple for example had decent sized catalogues of fine blues records and it was a privilege to give them an outing on STAR BLUES. Our previous foray into the territory on Bank Holiday Monday didn't give us enough time to include the pivotal blues greats, we had another go this week with Charley Patton, Tommy Johnson, Mance Lipscomb, Bessie Smith, Sleepy John Estes and Tommy McClennan. I first discovered the power and beauty in prewar blues through Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell and their place on our playlist was an easy choice.  If you've seen the Blues Band you'll know Paul Jones does a pretty good a capella version of "Woke Up this Morning With Jesus On My Mind", the original from Roosevelt Graves did Gospel duty for us. Little Brother Montgomery hasn't been out on STAR BLUES lately so he was our piano blues leaving us just enough time to cheat on the promise to omit electric guitar. The red Lightning album "No friend Around" has the earliest John Lee Hooker sessions recorded at very high volume with no polish applied after the fact (essential as starting point for a serious Hooker fan if you ask me). As the next day approached we got there through John Lee's "Lowdown Midnite Ramble".

You were very kind with your hospitality and invitation - absolutely magnificent as always, I was Gary Blue. I will be again on this upcoming Sunday at 10pm (GMT) if you'll let me. Don't forget to change you clocks backwards. Until then take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you

B B King: The Life of Riley (dir. Jon Brewer)

Shown for one night only at selected Odeon cinemas in UK. (Norwich 15th October 2012 at 21:00 BST)

Billed as "Survival is a Word, this is Its Story", Jon Brewer's two hour film collects interviews and archive footage about the child born near Itta Bena, Mississippi on 16th September 1925. We get to hear a recording of Riley's father Albert giving directions to the family home and there are several conversations with neighbours, cousins and schoolmates. The scale of the cotton fields and the shabbiness of the homes is all too starkly real on the big screen though King carefully points out his privations were no different to anyone elses. Through talking to his blues contemporaries (Rufus Thomas, Bobby Bland, Robert Lockwood and Calvin Owens) we get a good insight into the man and artist.

Some of the narrative is told out of chronological order which confused Little Bitty Pretty Blue (who came with me having never seen BB King before) and she didn't know who some folks interviewed were such as Joe Bihari. Like me, she found the first hour really engrossing able to understand and engage with the story.

Round about 1969, B's fortunes changed through "patronage" of white rock stars and boy do we get to see that through a stream of folks telling us how great our hero is without telling us we can't already hear for ourselves. The one real insight comes from Bono who shows us what it is like working and rehearsing with him, we get first hand experience of what drives him, how he conjures up that creative impulse. We could have done without Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Joe Bonamassa telling us that B B King is an icon and a great player - we already knew that thank-you. Little Bitty Pretty Blue provided some suggestions as to their motives for taking part which I won't repeat here. What makes it particularly galling is the fact that there are no complete songs anywhere in the film - repeat nothing is seen or heard as a full performance! I wanted LBPB to get the experience of the full roar of "Don't open the door" or "Everyday I have the blues" and she missed out (even though she thinks Jonny Lang is kinda cute).

The film only has two events since the 70s: the U2 project and "Riding With The King" which rather short changes King in his move to international recognition (music on films, cameo appearances on mainstream television) and his most accomplished albums in 40 years with "Born on the Bayou". The significance of his involvement with "The Rumble in the Jungle" boxing match isn't developed and his work with prisoners is totally excluded. That was by far the biggest oversight as King has often mentioned how easily he could have taken a wrong turn in life and been where they are. Its a big part of who he is and his determination to put something back and its omission spoilt the film and undermined Jon Brewer's intention for the project.

B. B. King is a complex, somewhat private, man. He is unfailingly gracious and modest; he has been hijacked in recent times by lesser souls aiming for greatness by association: his recent live work has cast him as ringmaster in a freak circus. "Life of Riley" was a one-off opportunity to redress the balance while he is still with us. In summary, there was a fascinating story to be told, however through the fumbling of the latter-period storyline and inexplicable decision to fillet the music contributions in deference to the nodding dogs - this ain't quite it.  7 out of 10 from LBPB and 6 out of 10 from me.

STAR BLUES on 14th October 2012 at 22:00

We gave STAR ROCK god Neil Jones a white tee-shirt as honorary cub reporter for STAR BLUES on the red carpet of the premiere of "Life of Riley", Jon Brewer's telling of B B King's life story. He spoke to Brewer, and Mick Taylor, on our behalf for the 1001 blues feature. In 1967 the young Taylor followed Peter Green into John Mayal's Bluesbreakers and was part of a generation directly influenced by B - the fan inside him is still there. Brewer talked of how he got onboard to get B's story to as many folks as possible. I'm off to Norwich tonight to see for myself. Many thanks to Neil for rubbing shoulders with the great and good at the premiere and party, its a dirty job but someone has to do it.

The sinister yellow ducks are in a Mexican standoff situation with Mrs Doubtfire wearing the most resolute of pinafores, in a staring contest with Ernest Borgine my money's on her - the fate of the two young chicks rests with her.

Unsurprisingly we are now officially (?) Britain's Other Blues Show; as proof our birthday book celebrated Chuck Berry, Kenny Neal, Olga, Mickey Baker, Nappy Brown and Guitar Gabriel - each with an individual blues gift Gabriel's album was his first in 30 years and was part of the launch of the MusicMaker organisation. It has an impressive roster (Precious Bryant, Etta Baker, Beverley Watkins, John Dee Holeman and so on) and is run as a not for profit outfit dedicated to the welfare of blues musicians who ground out a living on the road without healthcare provision. Regular subscribers who get my annual publication "GARY BLUE'S ALMANAC" are asked to make a donation to MM instead of paying me.

While we have good health in mind we sent positive thoughts to Kid Ramos, Curtis Salgado and Candye Kane who are all having a tough time with cancer. The power of Curtis' voice - with many textures in common with Solomon Burke - was astonishing given how ill he has been. Candye went back into hospital briefly but is now on the road again, Facebook showed her in New Orleans - she simply does not know how to slow down. She has lost loads of weight but still has the biggest heart of anyone I know.

The Crescent City gave us Champion Jack Dupree and Fats Domino - our piano blues maestros last night and as if it needed a bonus we snuck in Roy Milton's "RM Blues" on the Specialty label. Johnny Guitar Watson, Pee Wee Crayton and birthday boy Mickey Baker had overdriven amps and aggressive guitar in the 50s which still blows away everything else before or since. Mickey is still with us and would be a great subject for a film by Jon Brewer? Barbara Lynn is a great left-handed player - barely hamprered by what looks like a fulsome bridesmaid dress on the booklet cover of Kents anthology of her rare 60s and 70s singles.

Mick Hucknell has had a go at "That's How Strong My Love Is" - bless him - he oversells it so we gave him OV Wright's original as a homework assignment. For further inspiration James Carr covered Otis Redding. Mark Lamarr's gospel collections on Veetone brought forth another gem for us.  Before we knew it our allotted 118 minutes were up (a third hour anyone?). My plans for next week are to theme STAR BLUES around the feature in the new issue of Living Blues - "New Generation of Acoustic Blues". Hope you can be at your place in good time for 10pm (BST) next Sunday, until then take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you

STAR BLUES on 7th October 2012 at 22:00

Britain's Other Blues Show has resident yellow plastic ducks, we were twinned with Cairo in Egypt, we marked Albert Collins & Duke Robillard with birthdays, and talked about The Help and Nick Curran who'd just died. Collins is up for election to the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame, he was one of the most distinctive guitarists with an aggressive yet fluid style - his career was brought back on track by Canned Heat, he recorded with Gary Moore and played at the Philadelphia leg of Live Aid with George Thoroghgood.

Duke is the consummate cool guitarist with a jazz inflection and a penchant for all things T-Bone Walker. He doesn't know how to make a bad record. Layla Zoe is a new name to us, though she's firmly at the rock end of our purview she brought something of a party mood to last night's STAR BLUES. Can't believe we now say "the late" when we announce Nick Curran, a much loved figure in the blues community. Even though many knew of his illness, being taken at 35 is cruelly too soon. In recent times he'd flit from genre to genre (punk, rockabilly and so on) we did a track from his 2003 project "Dr Velvet" where he and Jimmie Vaughan tore up Gatmouth Brown's "Midnight Hour Blues". I could hear Screamin' Jay in Nicks vocal style.

Ian Siegal has another new album, extending a series of interesting sounds that push the genre envelope - this time out he's with Cody and Luther Dickinson and Alvin Youngblood Hart. We like it though some most definitely won't. The same situation affected the film "The Help" - it was criticised for showing a watered down view of the life of the African American women working as domestic help in Jackson at  the turn of the Sixties. 1960's not 1860's. How people can treat others in this way is beyond me, the fact it is within living memory of many who are still with us. Mavis Staples version of her dad's composition "Don't Knock" is on the soundtrack and it was in STAR BLUES last night as our 1001 blues feature. Normally we'd have held it for the gospel spot but we let the Sims Brothers in instead with "Ocean of Prayer". Theres a new survey of songs associated with Otis Redding covered by "Black America" - (as opposed to Vermillion or Ochre?) our first choice was Albert Washington's version of "These Arms Of Mine".

Classic era blues players included Junior Parker, John Littlejohn,  JB Hutto, Eddie Campbell and Johnny B. Moore - did I mention Ruth Brown and Wynonie Harris? Prof. Longhair was in New Orleans for our piano spot, to be joined straight after by ex-pat Carl Sonny Leyland who's now based in the Crescent City too. Add in two East Coast pickers (Gabriel Brown & Ralph Willis (who had Brownie Mcghee sitting in)) and we were at our allotted limit for time. You were magnificent, I was Gary Blue and would like to be again round your place at 10pm (BST) next Sunday. Until then take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you
