STAR BLUES 2013 Awards
Artist of the Year
Billy Boy’s work during 2013 epitomises the renaissance in Chicago Blues.  Following his success in 2012 with an album of Big Bill Broonzy songs, his work on the projects to celebrate Little Walter (BLIND PIG) and Walter Davis (ELECTRO-FI) was outstanding

Album of the Year
“DOWN IN LOUISIANA” – Bobby Rush (Deep Rush Records)
Released through his own label, the album places Rush at the centre of a stripped back combo; with an emphasis on rural blues his trademark horn-laden soulful arrangements largely move aside. His strong voice, guitar playing and harp are at their best on a fine set of self-penned songs.

Label of the Year
As befits the 60th anniversary of Bob Koerster’s Chicago imprint, Delmark issued consistently excellent new projects like those of Lurrie Bell and Toronzo Cannon, alongside mannah from the vaults by Magic Sam and Arthur Crudup. The industry responded to the celebrations with great warmth and fond memories even during a year which lost Magic Slim and Jimmy Dawkins from its canon.

Reissue Label of the Year

The reissue market got very crowded in 2013 with an imminent change in copyright duration. The Ace imprint didn’t choose to compete at the budget level and again set high standards in production, annotation and artwork. In almost all cases their reissues include bonus cuts or alternate takes.

STAR BLUES on 15th December 2013 at 22:00

By some distance 2013 has proved the blues is doing well, the number of new projects featuring top notch playing and songs is the highest for some time. Evidence m'lud? Two hours on STAR BLUES.

The selection was harder to make than any of the years special shows (Muddy's centenary, JFK blues and so on) but we tried to represent as many different flavours as possible, Jimmy 'Duck' Holmes comes from another time but his poignant playing is no less effective for it. Gene Pittman has also had more than one trip around the block: he has a reputation for energetic live gigs and his time in the studio had been limited: his recent project on Dialtone has attracted fine reviews and features in both Living Blues and Blues & Rhythm magazines. Top and tailing the show, two other artists deserving of far wider recognition, Larry Lamkin and Smilin' Bobby - their next outings are eagerly anticipated.

Toronzo Cannon plays a beautiful powder blue Flying-V and I've been enjoying his terrific album "john the Conquer Root" in the car. He modestly claims to be just a bus-driver who plays a bit of blues - there's a lot to be proud of here. His disc is out on Delmark who barely paused during its 60th anniversary to anchor the Chicago Blues scene during its resurgence. Lurrie Bell is there too and the album is another good'un - both men are in the running for the STAR BLUES award announced in two weeks time. Johnny Rawls is also on the list, he is the by-word for sheer quality in playing, singing, writing and production. For a couple of tracks Otis Clay joins him in a tribute to OV Wright.

2013 started off with Bobby Rush's stripped back album "Down In Louisiana" and we subsequently got two examples of wizardry that seems to appear when Bob Corritore is around, first with John Primer and then a third coupling with Dave Riley. Bob is the incumbent Artist of the Year, the decision won;t be so clear cut this time.  Billy Boy Arnold is front and centre for a pair of tribute projects (one for Walter Davis and one for Little Walter). Charlie Musselwhite didn't make the show yesterday as I've not heard either his new live recording at the Juke Joint Chapel or the one he did with Ben Harper. (The two songs on the Walter Davis were magnificent however). The most famous harp player currently working is arguably James Cotton: the voice is gone through health worries but that harp fire is undiminished; he left the singing to Darrell Nulisch for "Birds Nest on the Ground". That song was part of Muddy Waters' set and we had track from his son Big Bill Morganfield showing the apple don't fall far from the tree.

Delta Groove has had another good year with SugarRay Rayford stepping out of the shadows of the Mannish Boys to shine and Smokin' Joe's team with Bnois King never fails to please. Guy Davis is an engaging live performer and his two-hander with Italian harpman Fabrio Poggi is a good natured sparring contest. Mike Sanchez is another with a long pedigree and a proven track record of live energy and celebration of blues, boogie and rock'n'roll. His book "Big Town Playboy" is just about ready and it is sure to tell a fascinating tale. When we get more details, you'll hear it first on Britain's Other Blues Show. That's the one with the white tee shirt done live every Sunday night at 10pm (GMT). Until we can convene round your place again take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you

STAR BLUES on 8th December 2013 at 22:00

Hungry for blues which started at 45 or 78 on vinyl? Two hours? Even that was a stretch to do justice to the bag full of reissues crossing my decks this year.

We also had a short musical tribute to the "Little Ol' Bluesman" Chick Willis who died a few days ago (79 years). He had some sides out on Atco under his own name in the early years but he got a measure of notoriety for his "Stoop Down Man" single which became his trademark. Though not suitable for a family show it really characterised the influence of the genre among uniquely African American audiences and it was always at the heart of his live sets. There were a couple of albums for Ichiban before hooking up with old friend Johnny Rawls for a fabulous project on Rawls' imprint Deep South Sounds. The combination of Rawls songwriting with Chicks clipped guitar licks was hard to resist: two artists much greater than the sum of the parts. We had two fine examples on STAR BLUES as well as a cut from the 2011 album featuring Travis Haddix which picked up a STAR BLUES award. He wrote to STAR BLUES a couple of times, really pleased to know his music was going well over here, I never met him but he seemed like a gentle soul with a big heart. Much missed.

The One Day outfit  has a solid set of label surveys with selections first made between mid-50'sd and 1962. At a decent price you can use them as an introduction to the artists and old lags like me can pick up a few things to fill gaps in their collections.  Don't expect to get the lavish attention to detail that Ace / Kent label put out, theirs is a labour of love with projects compiled by fans for fans (meaning you get rare pictures, alternate takes, memorabilia, session details and the very highest fidelity from the original source tapes). The other player in the game this year deserving of the highest praise is the VEE-TONE imprint from Scotland; they have started a vinyl reissue series in the vaults of Motown and they plan more. VEE-TONE use Mark Lamarr's wealth of knowledge (and unique perspective) in compiling Blues, R&B and Rock'n'Roll anthologies of previously unissued vinyl 45s.

Fantastic Voyage and Jasmine seem to be mining the same seams at the moment and deserve mention for not simply rehashing the well-known names. As with One Day they are limited by material before 1962.  There are a number of others in the same market and by and large the fan wins out.

Wynona Carr turned up on a secular song, you'd have expected gospel but the Staple Singers did that using something they put out on a single and on the "Landlord" film soundtrack. We didn't do a special number to mark our piano spotwe'' put that right next week. Little Richards alternate lp take carried the Maceo Merriweather credit but the untreated single version had his own name in brackets underneath. We also dipped into a late period version of a song Wynonie Harris first cut in 1951. The 1960 remake put some rock'n'roll drums and an electric guitar into the mix - it failed to revive his career which had dipped with the arrival of beat groups and rock'n'roll. Our final oddity was the piece Maxwell Davis did for the Gillette (shaving) Company - other products are available.

Our 118 allotted minutes skated to a screeching halt far too soon for me but I plan to try to repeat the feat on Sunday at 10pm (GMT). You were magnificent company, until next week take CARE of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you

STAR BLUES on 1st December 2013 at 22:00

STAR BLUES tonight has the dream team lineup billed by Pervis Spann for a gig in October 1978: BB King, Little Milton, Muddy Waters, Albert King, Otis Clay a.o. Plus music from Aaron Moore who died this week.

Poster courtesy of Garland Floyd.

We think the date would have been 1978 for a Saturday 7th October, though the reason Muddy is so far down the bill is troubling? The failed Chess was behind him in 1975 shortly to hook up with Johnny Winter at Blue Sky by 1978 - now regarded as an Indian Summer. Mind you it was quite a contest to determine the winner of the International competition. Our playlist dabbled in the Stax back catalogue to represent both Little Milton and Albert King; Bobby Bland covered the Harlan Ellison standard "Blues In The Night" with effortless smoothness and the mainman BB King rode a jaunty steed for the saucy version of "Sell My Monkey". We're not sure what the Top Trumps score would have been, our show got us as close as possible to being there 35 years too late.

We started off with Candye Kane who has had a knock back health wise: I've never heard her complain or say a bad word about her situation, her outlook is relentlessly positive. The title track of her new project is another example of her on-stage exuberance. Jackson Sloan hails from Essex  and is helped out by Wes Weston on harp for a couple of tracks made in a good old-fashioned style. Its safe to say fans of balls-out axe finery will need to go elsewhere. WC Clark was on hand with the "Cold Shot" he did for the Black Top label, Stevie Ray Vaughan did a caustic version on his "Couldn't Stand the Weather" album.

Chicago is still reeling from the passing of Magic Slim and Jimmy Dawkins, this week Aaron Moore was taken too. He was a fine piano-player, first as sideman for Muddy and the Wolf, then in is own right as band leader on two late-blooming projects done for Delmark. If he'd been a guitarist he'd have been better feted but the two tracks we played showed how much he'll be missed. My research shows his birthdate as 11th Feb 1928 making him 85 - but his wife said he was ten years more senior.

Bob Corritore plays harp in a fluid brusque Chicago style, he has worked his magic on Dave Riley for the third time on the excellent "Hush Your Fuss" album on Vizztone. On the south side of Chicago, Sam Cooke and Lou Rawls hang out together and made their first steps into gospel bands. We went to something Lou Rawls did before his National Service in 1955. Wynonie Harris has a two disc anthology on Fantastic Voyage of definitive recordings and we ventured pre-war for Casey Bill (and the prolific Black Bob) and for a reminder of Tommy Johnson's power.

There's just four more shows in 2013 and we are struggling with settling on our annual awards, we'll see if things get any clearer next Sunday at 10pm. Until then take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you

STAR BLUES on 24th November 2013 at 22:00

In a few days John Mayall will be 80 and his "Beano" album just won a lifetime award. His Bluesbreakers outfit brought us music from Memphis Slim, Sonny Boy Wiliamson, Magic Sam, JB Lenoir and more. It is difficult to get very far looking him up in reference works without running into one or other of the bunch of notorious gunslingers he had in his band. While we had one apiece from Eric, Peter and Mick it was his heroes who interested STAR BLUES last night. So it was we had fine piano work from Clarence Lofton and Big Maceo; as well as more familiar souls such as Ray Charles and Robert Johnson.

The music we chose reflected John's own selections he lists on his website - echoing his enthusiasm for the originators of our music in whatever style. Given his knowledge of Freddy King's work for Federal (and how those guitarists plunged into cover versions of same) we were slightly taken aback by John's mention of the 1970s Freddy King reading of Don Nix's 'Going Down' - we went with it anyway. The 'Crusade' album was credited to Mayall without Bluesbreakers and he wrote a moving tribute song to JB Lenior who'd just died - we concur with his dismay at how sparsely the death had been noted anywhere.

By all accounts he was a hard task master and is said to travel in a car up the motorways while his band mates hunkered down with the gear in a transit van. His longevity in the business and his nurturing of others talents paid off for them and he has been the conduit to the baseline of blues for so many - it's pointless in debating his management style. STAR radio's rock god Neil Jones caught up with John on the way to [pick up that award for the Beano album, and the wily old campaigner nimbly dodged Neil's questions on his famous acolytes: he confirmed his perennial love for playing live and I think there's a star studded bash planned for his birthday.

In other blues, we had a cut from Dave Riley's third project with Bob Corritore showing the wizard has done it again. There's a simple approach with tight four man instrumentation rooted in Chicago blues. I almost played the wryly humourous song about the BP oil spill which may not really be suitable for young ears. You have to hear it. Eddie Taylor was a prolific sideman for John Lee Hooker and Jimmy Reed but he was no slouch as band leader for his own singles - fantastic challenge awaits someone in compiling a definitive box set of Eddie's work.We found Little Richard as an accompanist to Christine Kittrell and Julia Lee was elegantly playful with her boyfriends.

There's not much known about the fine Detroit singer Lena Hall who cut just two sides under her own name, she was helped by Washboard Sam and we had one of hers on the show. I've been on FB off and on and seen a thread asking for more information about her; I couldn't help with a full identification but I knew I had that single in my collection. That was about it until 10pm this upcomng Sunday; as we lurch into December we'll start putting together some lists to suggest to Santa on the off chance you get onto his "nice" list (or even if you join me over on the "naughty" one). Until then take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you

STAR BLUES on 17th November 2013 at 22:00

Several birthdates since I last sat here: Bobby Rush is now 73 and leads our celebrations that include Hubert Sumlin, Carey Bell and Candye Kane. Rush is criminally under-known outside the African-American community, yet his current album is as good as you're likely to hear in or out of the genre this year. He tours unceasingly with his own band and revue giving gig-goers a show they'll cherish. Check the ten year old Memphis film in the PBS Blues series for a fascinating insight into the workings of his craft.

Hubert was beloved and universally described as a "sweet man", generous with time and talent; known for his long tenure with Howlin' Wolf there was a feisty choppiness in his playing which he retained into his career as band leader in his own right (we went to his 1989 project for Blind Pig). Carey had a unique squall in his harp style, he was lead player in Muddy Waters band and I'm told he'd cover his instrument rather than let another player learn his secret. Some of his last recordings were done for Alligator and our choice gave him chance to stretch out.

Candye Kane is a remarkable woman who has overcome many challenges that would best lesser mortals - in every sense of the word she is a survivor with a fascinating story. Her new album was cut live in analog at 33rpm, it shows off a slight husky tone to her robust singing undercut with Laura Chavez' (at times brutal) guitar. We placed her in our running order alongside Lavern Baker (another anniversary of birth date) whose "Jim Dandy Got Married" for Atlantic clearly defined the connection in form between them. Mojo Buford was the harp play in Muddy's band at the pivotal Ann Arbor festival, he was also on the "Unk in Funk" album which was at the tail end of Waters' tenure at Chess. Buford was one of the classic players taken under the metaphorical wing of John Stedman for a set put out on JSP in 1989 - he had a fluid dynamic all his own (when he tried to learn from LittleWalter, he was rebuffed by the master who instructed him to just listen and play for himself).

We mentioned sonnyandbrownie for their on and off-stage interaction and we played a piece they did for Bob Shad in 1948. Piano duties were done in New Orleans by Fats Domino and the Shuffling Hungarians of Professor Longhair. I got a nice reminder about Curtis Jones during the week through FB and fortuitously walked into a proper record shop next day to find and buy his "Complete Blue Horizon Sessions" produced by birthday boy Mike Vernon. It isn't the best starting point for the man as his rudimentary guitar technique undermines his solid piano and clear vocals he made his name with.

The gospel tent had the Swan Silvertones with a great example of the pliability and power of the human voice. We didn't forget guitar technicians by any stretch of the imagination - a quintessential outing for Guitar Slim defined the term "blues guitar". Albert King, Hop Wilson and Johnny Shines' genius were similarly masterful, while wily old dogs John Lee Hooker and Lightnin' Hopkins boogied for all their worth.

Those two hours were soon gone and we will have a short chat with John Mayall on next week's STAR BLUES to tie in with his upcoming 80th birthday - until then take care of yourself and take care of those that take care of you

Britain's Other Blues show lead the way in being first to mark the fiftieth year this month since the shooting in Dallas of President Kennedy. We wanted to place those events in the context of the blues experience - ahead of what will unfortunately be a festival of ballyhoo about conspiracy theories and his celebrity lifestyle. The BBC is even promising a minute-by-minute reenactment; I've talked to folks who genuinely thought a nuclear war would start the next day.

I put some tracks into the playlist to set the scene by what was on the R&B charts in 1963: timeless music from Bobby Bland, Jackie Wilson and Little Johnnie Taylor made top spot (and weirdly / interestingly the R&B charts ended a week or so after the assassination). In May 1963 Elmore James died, in August Howlin' Wolf cut a classic session and in the summer Muddy Waters returned to his "unplugged" roots with Buddy Guy for his "Folk Singer" album. JFK was trying to find a way through some difficult times at home and overseas and he edged towards 1000 days in office.

Shortly after noon his motorcade turned right into Dealey Plaza and up towards the Texas Book Depository. In front of the building they turned left and moved away - within a few minutes the President was shot dead.

In the coming weeks of this half-centenary you'll hear and see plenty of theories and facts: his sudden death was felt particularly deeply in the African American community who were starting to believe that much needed change in Civil Rights legislation was coming. Boss of Testament Records, Pete Welding, became aware of a number of blues and gospel artists who had written songs about JFK the man and how they felt about his killing. The result was an album "Can't Keep From Crying " which was released in April 1964.- we featured just about all of it last night (just leaving out one of the versions of "Poor Kennedy" by Avery Brady). Husband and wife team James and Fannie Brewer did three songs and Otis Spann was cut twice. Johnny Young and Big Joe Williams captured the mood in their distinctive playing.

There's a full description of the artists and songs in a fine book compiled by the Dutch researcher Guido van Rijn ": Kennedy Blues ", this is a comprehensive survey of blues songs on contemporary themes recorded during the years of Kennedy's term in the Oval Office. There are similar books on all the US presidents since 1900 and the JFK one is particularly poignant.

I don't have a real sense of what actually happened and Guido's book and Pete's album have helped me understand how it affected a big part of America. I can't find a parallel for those events in my own purview and if we are lucky nothing like it will happen again.

My grateful thanks are extended to so many folks (who know who they are) for their help and patience while I did the background stuff for this edition of STAR BLUES; and to the Mighty Mark Peters and his team at Star Radio in Cambridge for doing this on commercial FM radio in the UK. The normal service of trivia, tomfoolery and blues will be back at 10pm (GMT) next Sunday until then take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you

STAR BLUES on 3rd November 2013 at 22:00

RIP Bobby Parker who we remember with some of his classy early singles and celebrating Birdlegg who is on the cover of both Living Blues and Blues&Rhythm magazines this month. A track from new projects by Toronzo Cannon and Jackson Sloan. The latter has already been described here as quite possibly the coolest man working the live British Blues circuit - he writes and sings in that good old fashioned way, no hanging around, take no prisoners with a voice which reminds me of the great Walter Brown.

Toronzo wears a sharp suit and plays a gorgeous powder-blue flying V guitar left-handed; his songs are nicely turned observations showing the currency of bang upto date Chicago blues. His new album on Delmark "John The Conquer Root" is a goodun. If you had any notions of what an artist called "Birdlegg" could be, be glad you checked those ideas at the door - he is a man schooled in the ways of Sonny Boy Williamson and Sonny Terry, dressed in white shirt tie and flat cap he is a cracking live performer and he is now part of the Dialtone outfit profiled in the new B&R magazine. His self-titled project was featured on last night's STAR BLUES - though he has Omar Dykes on guitar there's no room for any single instrument to outshine any other, this is ensemble playing nicely arranged. Label owner Eddie Stout runs a tight ship and his unerring passion for the music has done it again.

Bobby Parker died on Thursday and just about every obituary makes much of his 1961 hit for V-tone called "Watch Your Step" and how both the Beatles and Led Zeppelins riffs wore the influence. Our four selections from the same era proved he was already working at that level of consistency with achingly soulful vocal cut through with caustic guitar. His "Blues Get Off my Shoulder" still tingles my spine. We didn't get chance to dip into his latter period recordings for Black Top and he was gigging right through the summer. it's been especially tough this year after Bobby Bland, Magic Slim and Jimmy Dawkins each man leaves a huge hole.

Maxwell Davis did stuff under his own name and as sax-man, band-leader and arranger he graced dozens of top-notch 50's recordings by the likes of B. B. King. we chose Young Jessie's best known hit from the anthology newly out on Fantastic Voyage. Same outfit has another rummage around the soulful side of Detroit and I never need much excuse to play Singin' Sammy Ward (this time his "Part Time Love"). The selection is complied by soul-expert (and writer and dj) Clive Richardson which is a measure of quality in my book. Another distinctive voice who never delivers less than the best was that of Earl Gaines, we went back to Nashville in 1959 for his session. Little Milton was on Checker for a moving vocal performance, B B King's "Letter" was a single originally, ripe for repicking by the Bihari Brothers for their budget Crown label series of albums. Sonny Boy Williamson popped over, Lou Rawls earliest gospel roots were on show and Little Brother Montgomery owned the piano keys at Vicksburg.

The rule of the show during the Vinyl Hour is for songs which were first cut for 45 or 78 revs; our Etta James track was done for an album and the second Birdlegg track was there too. Talk of rules at the top end of the shop came about Sonny Rhodes (who had a birthday on 3rd November). Until 9/11 he wore a turban and these days its a stetson. When I heard his 3 song session for Paul Jones in Feb, 1992 I thought it was the law to play guitars standing up. The piercing lap steel on Lee Dorsey's "Ya-Ya" blew that theory even though I had no idea what a lap-steel was. From there I found Hop Wilson and the Rev, Lonnie Farrish - the rest is h....

Our STAR BLUES next week (10th Nov) marks the 50th year of President JFK's shooting; Pete Welding's album on Testament forms the basis of the show as it chronicles the African-America experience of the event and it's aftermath. I hope you'll let me round your place for what promises to be a fascinating look back at one of the Century's defining  moments and the reaction in the African American community. Until then take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you.

STAR BLUES on 27th October 2013 at 22:00

We're set to start on this side of the pond before cruising into over an hour of vinyl finery on STAR BLUES. Our start was actually in Canvey Island when Dr. Feelgood tickled the UK singles charts for the first time; John Philip Cawthra had joined the band to fill the considerable void left by Wilko Johnson, many diehard fans found it hard to accept "Gypie" Mayo who has died this week. I found the music of Johnny Guitar Watson, Solomon Burke and John Lee Hooker through seeing them live.

Thereafter Bernie Marsden reached back to 1967 for a track off the debut album from Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac and Otis Grand lovingly recreated that BB King big-band swing for his 1989 "Always Hot" out on the small French label, Special Delivery. Paul Jones picked up on it and in a trice our Otis was the featured star on the cd which celebrated the 100th issue of Blues & Rhythm magazine. In a very different style of playing - though arguably more influential - Bert Jansch gave a masterclass on his 1966 interpretation "blackwater Slide" (he cleverly interpolated some Indian chords into his coda). Manfred Mann have a seven-disc clamshell package of their original EP's with fabulous artwork: "I Put A Spell On You" came closest to our format, but collectors won't care when adding it to their Santa list.

Jo-Ann Kelly was Britain's more credible blues artist in the 1960's and Duster Bennett was her equal counterpart - much missed is something of an understatement. Paddy Milner and Carl Sonny Leyland effortlessly rippled those keys and Little George Suref was superbly controlled for Big Joe Louis' cover of a Snooky Pryor classic. 

The annual Blues Blast awards are on the way and both Johnny Rawls and Barbars Carr are deservedly nominated for their fine albums on Catfood Records. The Johnny Rawls selection was also a nod to his brand new project which celebrates the genius of his old friend and mentor O. V. Wright.  Other awards due to Eddie Shaw and Bob Koerster of Delmark Records, both with lifetime recognition (and further confirmation of the strength of Chicago Blues)  King Curtis came along twice, once under his own steam and once as featured sideman on a superb Big Maybelle single from 1957.
Little Willie John's sister Mabel was one example of what Berry Gordy had on his family of labels as the 1960s dawned. Fantastic Voyage has just issued a piece which by happy chance complements the Vee-Tone album we had as our feature last week. We also took the Little Otis answer song to "Duke of Earl" from the pack.

Garfield Love with Jimmy Spruell and Hound Dog Taylor were both singles licenced by Blue Horizon for British release with glimpses of what was happening in US. Little Sonny and Lowell Fulson closed our show last night as we girded our loins for the trek outside into the approaching Hurricane. It didn't equal what we had for weather in 1987 when Sevenoaks in Kent became one overnight - it was still pretty mean and nasty. We dipped out on gospel last night but we'll be back this upcoming Sunday at 10pm (GMT) with the regular prescription of trivia and tomfoolery in a white tee-shirt. Did I mention armfuls of blues? Until then take care of yourselves and take care of those that take care of you
