I've been listening to a hell of a lot of my Slim Harpo vinyl prompted by this

Tribute To Elmore- Clapton & Page
(was this really from 1965?!?)... sounds like snippets from 'Dust My Broom', but who gives a sh!t, it's still awesome...

Robert Cray - Strong Persuader

It's been a long time since I listened to this one, and I still think this is a really good album. I always thought he had a great guitar sound, and a great voice. Not sure what he is up to nowadays, but this album still holds up for me. I'm really enjoying it. Might give it a few spins!

I can't get this album out of my head or off my turntable, Otis Rush, Right place, Wrong time. It's on Bullfrog Records.

    I lately purchased a reissue of:

      'La Vern' - La Vern Baker (EU Rumble Records - RUM201127, 2012)

    A truly outstanding album of a unique artist.

    secondly I was lucky to get this:

      'Madame Blues & Doctor Jazz!' - Ottilie Patterson with Chris Barber (probably DE Black Lion Records - BLM 51101, 1984)

    The first time I became aware of Mrs. Patterson was when I listened to a Hungarian pressing of an album by the Chris Barber Jazz Band (HU Qualiton - LPX 7185, 1962). I haven't even heard her name before, but, when I played this record I wondered who's this Lady singing so magnificent on 3 of the tracks. One was a more than just impressive cover version of Ruth Brown's 'Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean'.

    Since then I was just able to track down one more Chirs Barber album containing one song where she does the vocals on an exceptional cover version of 'Can't Give You Anything But Love' [Jimmy McHugh (music) and Dorothy Fields (lyrics)] and 'When the Saints Go Marching In'.

    This collaboration with the Chris Barber Jazz Band turned into a very interesting mixture of both genres, absolutely recommendable.

When Sonny Boy Williamson was touring the UK in 1963, he and Ottilie Patterson actually cut a 45 for EMI Columbia (Baby Please Don't Go/I Feel So Good). This is on YouTube. Somewhere I have a copy of the Abbey Road session sheet, I'll see if I can locate it.

    Now you made me curious! It's good to hear, that you know her too.

Attached is the session sheet as produced by the Abbey Road microfiche printer in 1989 (I'm afraid if I try to post anything bigger the software tells me I can't) and here are my observations on it thus:

"Baby Please Donít Go" was erroneously logged by EMI as the Cliff Richard 1960 number one hit "(Baby) Please Donít Tease", also recorded for Columbia whilst "I Feel So Good" is the Broonzy anthem, so who is composer Bill Glover? The six session musicians received a total fee equaling that of Ivor Raymonde for his "orchestrations". In the event the studio evidently didnít require as much "percussion" as initially anticipated.

Here follows the entry as it appears in The Blues Discography (Fancourt & McGrath 2002)

OTTILIE PATTERSON with SONNY BOY WILLIAMSON

V with Sonny Boy Williamson, h; unk g; b; d; org arr. by Ivor Raymonde.
London 23 Dec 1963

Baby Please Donít Go Columbia (UK) 7208
I Feel So Good Columbia (UK) 7208

Muddy Waters / Rolling Stones - Live at the Checkerboard Lounge in Chicago 1981

Released a few weeks ago this is a GREAT 2 record set (one black, one white) that also includes a DVD of the complete show. Mick, Keith, Ron Wood, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy and others join Muddy on stage and it's a fantastic show!

    First of all, thank you for your kind efforts to provide such amazing information, it's appreciated. Don't worry about the size of the image too much, it's alright and gives me an idea of such a sheet. Very interesting!
