Struttin My Stuff # 5 Playlist and Download

Hello folks,

While Deejay Wheelie finds out what is the best music in the world on
BBC television, we´re playing it.

Yes folks, it´s another show full of  moanin and groanin music to sooth your soul and make you jump and shout.
Let´s have a quick look what we have this time.  Just to name a few: 

Little Bessie and Pearline Caeser  with some great R&B shuffles,  made for the Amy label.
Then we´ve Ronnie Wood, doing a raunchier version of Black Limousine than the Stones ever did.
Also on the show: Jimi Hendrix himself.  This time with his first ever (or almost, the experts don´t agree on this one) studio recording, spicing up Rosa Lee Brooks´ My Diary. (First known Arthur Lee composition, by the way)

Talking about great guitar players: I always wondered who played that stingin´ guitar on my favourite Eldridge Holmes tune, the scorching blues Cheatin Woman. I never bothered to look it up ´till now - enjoying the music too much-  but  it is Leo Nocentelli of The Meters. (Funk and soul professors like Larry Grogan of the
Funky16Corners  blog and Sir Shambling  know these kind of things.).  One reason more to sign this petition to get The Meters in the Rock ´n Roll Hall Of Fame!

To continue ´this guitar talk´: ever heard of Tore Elgaroy?  A great gritty and soulful guitarist from Norway who plays a star role on Lee Clayton´s 1989 Another Night album (and apparently after that disappeared from the music scene for years).
Check the record out for yourself though, because we play the only not guitar- heavy track on the album,  the tearjerker  A Little Cocaine .

Which brings me tot the last name I will mention: George Jackson. His I Don´t Need You No More brings tears to your eyes. At least to mine. Recorded in 1976 but in my opinion just as good and deep as any sixties southern soul classic.

Have fun with the show! (But be careful, ´cause it starts with a bang.)

Struttin My Stuff # 4 - Come On In And Do The Swing

Helllo again!

And welcome to our fourth Struttin My Stuff show.  More than 80 minutes  of gritty blues, deep soul, sixties and other garage, ska, hard funk, gospel, zydeco, afro- beat, fifties and sixties R&B and R&R ... name it, we play it, as long as it has SOUL.

Busy folks we have this time: Georgie Fame is Monkeying Around, Big Joe Williams needs his Vitamine A Blues , Ella Washington is Starving For Love and Th´ Legendary Shack Shakers do the Bullfrog Blues.  

In the meantime The Come Ons  and The J. Geils Band play a Detroit-Boston match, while Peter Green and John Mayall are Out Of Reach ( talking of the Mayall family, we will play something of son Gaz his Rockin Records label  one of the upcoming shows). 
And, as promised last week, we have Barrelhouse,  Tineke Schoemakers own band. There ain´t  many Dutch female blues singers around and Tineke is by far the best. Listen to Oh Death, and you know what I mean.
Talking about the best. This week´s  country tearjerker is Gram Parsons´ Return of The Grievous Angel. They don´t come any better than that!

Have fun with the show!

Public Enemy Number One?

They don´t look like it. Maybe because this picture is from ´66. After all, we´re talking about the Public Enemy of  ´62 , according to the singer of the band. 
But no hip hop here, folks. The Purple Hearts  (from Brisbane, Australia)  made straight to the bone R&B.
Better so.

Lots more moanin and groanin R&B, Rockabilly, R&R, Blues, Soul, Funk, Gospel, Zydeco, Garage, Ska , Country and Afro-beat on Struttin My Stuff # 4, coming Saturday 19 Feb,  10 pm CET, here on MOANIN and GROANIN Radio.
