Rod Stewart - This Old Heart Of Mine (with Ronald Isley)

Well, well, well.  Finally someone uploaded Fleetwood Mac's Madison Blues off of their double LP, Fleetwood Mac In Chicago (alternately entitled "Blues Jam At Chess" or "Blues Jam In Chicago").  However, it was uploaded in a playlist of the entire LP.  Hey, no complaints from me.  Skip to track #9 or, better yet, start with track #1 and continue on to #9, then beyond through track #22.

 

The members of Fleetwood Mac at the time of this recording were Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Mick Fleetwood, and John McVie. The Chicago blues musicians who played at this session were Otis Spann (piano, vocals), Willie Dixon (upright bass), Shakey Horton (harmonica, vocals), J.T. Brown (tenor saxophone, vocals), Buddy Guy (guitar), Honeyboy Edwards (guitar, vocals), and S.P. Leary (drums).

 

For blues enthusiasts this early 1969 recording at Chicago's Chess Studios was a significant collaboration between one of the U.K.'s premier blues bands and the stalwart, iconic U.S. blues musicians hailing from Chicago or frequenting it's blues scene.

 

Enjoy!  Not sure how long this will survive on YT.

What the hey???  It was only yesterday that I christened the new 2018 Blasts from the Past thread with a flurry of posts running on a "starting over" theme.  Charlie, April Fool's ain't fer a few more months.  I think bannork has it right . . . the wheel keeps on turning, ala Groundhog Day.  Well, yer not foolin' me.  I know damn well how old I am.

 

Anyway, a great pre-Steppenwolf tune, Twisted, from back in '68 when they were called John Kay & The Sparrow.

I was never a huge fan of Grand Funk Railroad but they did have a few numbers I liked.  They get a lot of credit here with this November '69 live TV performance in Hershey, Pennsylvania, entitled Inside Looking Out.  A tight performance by all.  And a 21-year-old Mark Farner.  Ha, to think I ain't much older than that.

BTW, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.  Been on holiday so first chance for me to send my greetings.

 

Matt "Guitar" Murphy with "Matt's Guitar Boogie" live from the European American Folk Blues Festival in '63.  Accompanied by Memphis Slim on piano, Billy Stepney on drums, and Willie Dixon playing double bass.

 

Murphy began playing in '48 with the Howlin' Wolf Band, which at the time featured Little Junior Parker.  Since then he's played with luminaries Ike Turner, Memphis Slim, Chuck Berry, Koko Taylor, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Buddy Guy, Etta James, Otis Rush,  Willie Dixon, and James Cotton.  He played in the Blues Brothers movies with Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, playing the husband of Aretha Franklin, and was a long standing member of the Blues Brothers band.

 

 

And another fine number, Boogie In The Barnyard, also accompanied by Memphis Slim.

And since I was on holiday I didn't get the chance to post one of my favourite contemporary Christmas tunes.  Greg Lake with his '75 I Believe In Father Christmas.  Gotta find a version with better quality, though.

The Quarrymen with a beautiful instrumental tune, Cayenne, recorded in McCartney's family bathroom in April, '60.  Stuart Sutcliffe on bass.  This gem wasn't released until '95 on the Anthology I CD.

 

Edit:  BTW, the vid features some nostalgic early images.
