MYSTERY TRAIN

Brian Setzer - Mystery Train Live 







Mystery Train" is a song recorded by American blues musician Junior Parker in 1953. Considered a blues standard,Parker, billed as "Little Junior's Blue Flames", recorded the song for producer/Sun Records owner Sam Phillips and it was released on the Sun label. The song was written by Junior Parker (aka Herman Parker), with a credit later given to Phillips.
One commentator noted "One of the mysteries about 'Mystery Train' was where the title came from; it was mentioned nowhere in the song"The song uses lyrics similar to those found in the traditional American folk music group Carter Family's "Worried Man Blues", itself based on an old Celtic ballad, and their biggest selling record of 1930.Elvis Presley's version of "Mystery Train" was first released on August 20, 1955 as the B-side of "I Forgot to Remember to Forget" (Sun 223). Presley's version would be ranked #77 on Rollin…

SWEET HOME CHICAGO / SWEET OLD CHICAGO

"Sweet Home Chicago" es un estándar de blues popular en forma de doce compases. Primero fue registrado y se le atribuye haber sido escrito por Robert Johnson.  A través de los años la canción se ha convertido en uno de los himnos más populares de la ciudad de Chicago, a pesar de la ambigüedad en la letra original de Johnson.
En el video la versión  que hizo Mr. Roosevelt Sykes,  ( firmando como autor .... ) cambiando el título , mientras que la letra permanece básicamente tal y como fué creada., en alguna de las diferentes versiones que según el artista que la interpretase disponía a su antojo.

Como diría Mr. David Giorcelli : Keep on Boogie 

Thomas Francis "Tommy" Dorsey, Jr. (November 19, 1905 - November 26, 1956 was an American jazz trombonist, trumpeter, composer, and bandleader of the Big Band era. He was known as "The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing", because of his smooth-toned trombone playing. Although he was not known for being a notable soloist, his technical skill on the trombone gave him renown amongst other musicians. He was the younger brother of bandleader Jimmy Dorsey. After Dorsey broke with his brother in the mid-1930s, he led an extremely popular and highly successful band from the late 1930s into the 1950s.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe - This Train [1943]

Sister Rosetta Tharpe (March 20, 1915 – October 9, 1973) was an American singer, songwriter, guitarist and recording artist. A pioneer of twentieth-century music, Tharpe attained great popularity in the 1930s and 1940s with her gospel recordings that were a unique mixture of spiritual lyrics and rhythmic/early rock accompaniment. She became gospel music's first crossover artist and its first great recording star, referred to later as "the original soul sister". She was an early influence on iconic figures such as Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis Willing to cross the line between sacred and secular by performing her music of 'light' in the 'darkness' of the nightclubs and concert halls with big bands behind her, Tharpe pushed spiritual music into the mainstream and helped pioneer the rise of pop-gospe…

KANSAS JOE McCOY & MEMPHIS MINNIE

Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie – “When The Levee Breaks” Post image for Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie – “When The Levee Breaks” A peculiar detail about Chicago Blues legend Joe McCoy is that he had a lot of stage names. Best known as Kansas Joe McCoy, he also performed and recorded as Georgia Pine Boy, Hallelujah Joe, Hillbilly Plowboy and Mud Dauber, to name just a few. Joe was married for a time to blues guitar great Memphis Minnie (who’s real name was Lizzie Douglas) and they made this classic record together in 1929. This song was much later recorded by Led Zeppelin. Here’s the timeless original, hot off the 78RPM vinyl.

LED ZEPPELIN hizo su propia versión del tema que apareció en su álbum Led Zeppelin IV

LUTHER HUFF

By : randomandrare

Luther Huff was born on December 5, 1910 in Fannin, MS. He and his and younger brother Percy learned how to play guitar from an older brother named Willie, and a cousin Donnee Howard. Soon they were playing at fish fries and picnics with their older relatives. One picnic held at a plantation in Belzoni lasted 13 days! Luther bought himself a mandolin in 1936 and taught himself how to play it. He was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1942 and served in England, France & Belgium. While in Belgium in 1944, he recorded two acetates that were later lost. After being discharged from the Army he moved to Detroit, MI. in 1947, married and fathered twelve children. Percy stayed in Jackson where he was employed as a taxicab driver. On a visit to Jackson in 1950, Luther ran across Sonny Boy Williamson (II), and told him he needed train fare to get back to Detroit. Sonny Boy hooked Luther and Percy up with Trumpet Records where they recorded four sides in January & February …

DANNY OVERBEA

Artist Biography Born . 3 January 1926, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, d. 11 May 1994, Chicago, Illinois, USA. Guitarist and singer Overbea, who came out of the Chicago R&B scene, was one of the earliest pioneers of rock ‘n’ roll. He began his musical career in 1946 and first recorded in 1950 as a vocalist on an Eddie Chamblee track. Overbea joined Chess Records in 1952, producing his best-known songs, ‘Train Train Train’ (number 7 R&B) and ‘40 Cups Of Coffee’, the following year. Both were essentially rock ‘n’ roll songs before the concept of ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ had even emerged. In the pop market, ‘Train Train Train’ was covered by Buddy Morrow and ‘40 Cups Of Coffee’ by Ella Mae Morse. By 1955, when rock ‘n’ roll was making its breakthrough on the pop charts, Bill Haley And His Comets recorded ‘40 Cups Of Coffee’, which, even though it did not chart, proved to be one of their better efforts. Famed disc jockey Alan Freed featured Overbea many times in his early rock ‘n’ roll re…

GLADYS BENTLEY

Allá por principios de los cincuenta un " serio" Groucho Marx presentaba un Show en TV., con el nombre Apuesta tu vida ( + ó - )  YOU BET YOUR LIFE en uno de estos Shows la invitada fué la cantante y pianista GLADYS BENTLEY , nacida el 12 de Agosto de 1907 / Enero 1960 , Lesbiana confesa tuvo ciertos problemillas en la época de la caza de brujas de McCarthy ,hasta tal punto que comenzó a ponerse vestidos e incluso llegó a contraer matrimonio , ( luego él lo negaría ) tras presentarse para ministro., ella por su parte aseguró que se había " curado " a causa de tomar hormonas femeninas a mansalva...

CURLEY WEAVER

Otro ejemplo más de Bluesman semi-desconocido por el gran público , lo cual no indica que estuviera exento de calidad, tiene un estilo muy característico con la guitarra.

Curley James Weaver (March 25, 1906 - September 20, 1962) was an American blues musician, also known as Slim Gordon.
Early years He was born in Covington, Georgia, United States, and raised on a farm near Porterdale.

B B King, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Albert Collins, Buddy Guy - Apollo Theater Hall Of Fame

Apollo Theater Hall Of Fame 1993, Harlem/New York City, NY . Tuneage: "Sweet Little Angel" and "Let The Good Times Roll". (TRT:13:34)
"Black Angel Blues", also known as "Sweet Black Angel" or "Sweet Little Angel", is a blues standard that has been recorded by numerous blues and other artists.[1] The song was first recorded in 1930 by Lucille Bogan, one of the classic female blues singers. Bogan recorded it as a mid-tempo, twelve-bar blues, featuring her vocal with piano accompaniment. In 1956, B.B. King recorded "Sweet Little Angel" (RPM Records 468). According to King, "I got the idea for 'Sweet Little Angel' from Robert Nighthawk's 'Sweet Black Angel', though I later discovered that the song had been recorded by someone before Nighthawk. At the time 'black' was not a popular word, as it is now. Instead of using the old title, I changed it to 'Sweet Little Angel'—and that was a pretty big…

Willie Brown (August 6, 1900 – December 30, 1952) was an American delta blues guitarist and singer. Born Willie Lee Brown in Clarksdale, Mississippi, Brown played with such notables as Charley Patton and Robert Johnson. He was not known to be a self-promoting frontman, preferring to "second" other musicians. Little is known for certain of the man whom Robert Johnson called "You can run, you can run, tell my friend Willie Brown" (in his prophetic "Cross Road Blues") and whom Johnson indicated should be notified in event of his death. In an alternate take of the song, Johnson introduced a Neologism with "tell my friendboy Wil…

Artist Biography by Bill Dahl
Talk about a versatile musician: Alden Bunn (aka Tarheel Slim) recorded in virtually every postwar musical genre imaginable. Lowdown blues, gospel, vocal group R&B, poppish duets, even rockabilly weren't outside the sphere of his musicianship. However, spirituals were Bunn's first love. While still in North Carolina during the early '40s, the guitarist worked with the Gospel Four and then the Selah Jubilee Singers, who recorded for Continental and Decca. Bunn and Thurman Ruth broke away in 1949 to form their own group, the Jubilators. During a single day in New York in 19…

I asked the conductor, let me ride it blind. (Okay...)
I asked the conductor to let me ride it blind. (What did he say?)
Lord, he shook his head, said, "The train ain't none of mine."

(Left you shook up, then...)

I got a letter from Hot Spring. I tell you how it was read. (Feel any better, boy.)
I got a letter from Hot Spring. I tell you how it was read.
Lord, it's come at once, boy: your sure-'nough gal is dead. (...know whether to go blind, then...)
Come at, come at once, sure-'nough gal, sure-'nough gal is dead.

Said I left my baby standin' out back door cryin'. (Felt like somethin' else.)
I left my baby standing out back door cryin'.
I never felt so sorry, Lord, till she said goodbye.

The Temptations - Live In Concert !

The Temptations are an American vocal group known for their success in the 60s and 70s at Motown Records. The group's repertoire has included, during its five-decade career, R&B, doo-wop, funk, disco, soul, and adult contemporary music. Known for their recognizable choreography, distinct harmonies, and flashy onstage suits, the Temptations have been said to be as influential to soul as The Beatles are to pop and rock. 
Formed in Detroit, Michigan, in 1960 as The Elgins (not to be confused with another Motown group with the same name), the Temptations have always featured at least five male vocalists/dancers. Having sold tens of millions of albums,the Temptations are one of the most successful groups in music history. As of 2010, the Temptations continue to perform and record for Universal Records with its one living original member, Otis Williams, still in its lineup.
The Temptations were the first Motown act to earn a Grammy Award. Six Temptations (Dennis Edwards, Melvin Frankl…

Mercy Dee Walton (August 3, 1915 – December 2, 1962)was an American jump blues pianist, singer and songwriter, whose compositions ran the gamut from lowdown blues to jumping R&B numbers. According to journalist Tony Russell in his book The Blues - From Robert Johnson to Robert Cray, "Walton created a series of memorable blues about the unattractiveness of rural life, sardonically aimed at the black migrant workers in southern California who constituted his typical audience". Born in Waco, Texas, United States, he moved to California just before World War II. He started playing piano at age 13 and learned his style from many of the ten-cent party house pianists that played out in the country on weekends. To make ends meet, he had to earn his living in the fields chopping cotton, picking grapes or cutting spinach. During this time, the musician who impressed Walton the most was Delois Maxey, who never had an opportunity to…
