Struttin My Stuff # 6 - It´s 1964

Hello there again!

Welcome for a new shot of gritty blues, funky stuff,  deep gospel and soul, black and white R& R and R& B and much more.

Starter this week is Zoot Money with one of my fav dance tunes ,The Uncle Willie.
Firt time I heard the name Zoot Money was when the late great Kevin Coyne introduced Zoot on his live album In Living Black and White (Virgin, 1976). `Zoot Money, ladies and gentlemen!, followed by Zoot doing, if I´m not mistaking, a sort of jazzy solo on his electric piano. 
Only many years later I discovered that our man was responsible for some of the most exciting British R &B of the sixties. And just a few weeks ago I found out that Zoot´s Uncle Willie isn´t the only one, when that daredevil Derek came with The Daylighters version on his Daily 45 blog. Also from 1964. 
And in the comments somebody mentioned the version by Brian Poole and The Tremeloes from 1965. Both The Daylighters´ and Brian Poole´s  ´Uncle´  we will play sometime in the future, but for know we stick to our favorite Uncle, which is Zoot´s.

Another unsung heroe of British R &B on the show is harmoncia player Cyril Davies, with one of his latest efforts, Country Line Special . 
 Although, unsung. The guy died in 1964 (we have something with that year this show, apparently) and he is still getting tribute shows. Or is there something like a Cyril Davies revival?
Anyway,  check out this Cyril Davies website and watch Mick Jagger telling about how he never actually saw somebody play a harmonica before he went as a 17-year old to a Cyril Davies concert. Yes, that´s the same guy who only a few years later was playing with legends like Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf!

Talking about legends. This week show has plenty of them, with names like Ray CharlesBobby Blue Bland,  Allan Toussaint and James Brown.

But  did you ever hear of  DM Bob & The Deficits? That DM stands for Deutschmark Bob. Bob though, comes from Louisiana, he only lives in Hamburg.  Furthermore, Bob is a painter and he makes records with his Deficits for the Austrian Voodoo Rhytm label.  Bob also performs this week country jerker. 

Quite a  guy, that Bob.

Have fun with the show!
