  1. Baby Face Willette

    Clemson's got a lot of interesting stuff. MG
  2. Baby Face Willette

    What a nice find! Dr Jo Jo Adams was from Alabama but was well featured in Chicago through the forties up to 1958. That appearance would have been somewhere in the period after his recording for Hollywood in the late forties/early fifties (can't remember or find the date very quickly) up to '58. His recording for Vee-Jay was done I think in '55. I'd guess that the Jo Jo show would have featured him working up his organ style - one of the Vee-Jay sides has the same approach as 'Chances are few' on 'Stop & listen'. So if you'd been in the Hickory Pit that night... MG
  3. Best track you heard all week

    This is the B side of Tyrone Davis' first hit, 'Can I change my mind', but when I got it home - back in '69 - I was totally knocked out by this. Got the album the other day and was knocked out again. MG
  4. groove holmes

    Don't know that. I kind of missed the O'Jays, because they were recording for Philadelphia Int. The only album I have (and have ever bought) on that label is Lou Rawls' 'Shades of blue'. Can't be bothered with Gamble/Huff stuff. MG

    I try not to remember the music I listen to, so each time it's like a new record. So I dunno what the O'Jays' riff is. But I think the rhythm arrangement is about the same on the two albums but the St Louis session punches a lot more than the RVG job. Glad it's out on CD. Don't anyone miss it, for your own sakes. Bought the LP as soon as it came out. Ripped it a few months ago and have been playing it a good bit more lately. MG
  6. What 78 are you spinning right now ?

    Locally? Mass must be a good place for 78s. MG
  7. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Been ripping my new LP - L'archange du Manding, by Kade Diawara Pretty nice - a bit noisy but not so bad it spoils the pleasure of listening to very traditional Djeliya. Followed it up with something completely different - Lionel Hampton - Flying home. This is the 1954 version, recorded for Clef. The LP I have is a compilation of tracks that were issued on two earlier Clef LPs which were imaginatively called 'The Lionel Hampton Quintet' and 'The Lionel Hampton Quartet/Quintet' MG
  8. What music did you buy today?

    Arrived fifteen minutes ago Kade Diawara - L'archange du Manding - Syliphone SLP62 I noticed this in Graeme Counsel's Syliphone discography a few days ago. I've three more recent K7s than this LP (1977), and didn't know about it. Looked on Discogs and found one not prohibitively expensive. A present to ME from myself. MG
  9. What 78 are you spinning right now ?

    Cataloguing prompts me to ask if that's all stuff you've got recently? MG
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Finished writing my Christmas cards listening to Herman Foster - The one and only Ike Quebec - With a song in my heart Sonny Stitt - Just the way it was live at the Left Bank Probably the greatest live album ever made. MG
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Breakfast music Empire Bakuba - Lassissi presente Sam Cooke - Night beat Gladstone Anderson - It may sound silly The Gladstone Anderson is one for TTK - Lounge Reggae MG
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    My favourite Hamp Hawes. MG
  13. BFT 176 The Reveal

    Get all the Charles Williams', without hesitation. If you like 'Trees & grass & things' you'll like the other two. Oh, I've got the Kora Jazz trio #2 but didn't recognise it. I didn't realise there were two further albums. Have to pick them up. Actually, I got 'em for Djali Moussa Diawara, not Diabate,and his sitting out on this one put me off my guessing the track. I naturally assumed it was something of Diabate's own. Lots of surprises in this. I have a few Weston albums, but he's not one of my favourites. I think perhaps I ought to get that Riverside album, though. MG
  14. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Breakfast with Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vinson - Cherry red blues Red Garland - The Politically Correct blues Dinah Washington - Dinah jams MG
  15. I think that was a little while before I started buying Mosaics and maybe I had a bit too much of it on LP already. Ah well... MG
