THERE ARE TWO PLAYLISTS BELOW

THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

+ NEXT WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 5/19/19
IKE TURNER & THE KINGS OF RHYTHM

This week on BBS we listen to Ike Turner & His Kings Of Rhythm. I recently added a 4 CD set under Ike’s name to my collection, Ike Turner & His Kings Of Rhythm, The Singles 1951 – 1957, which includes over 100 sides – many under Ike’s name, and many others recorded under Ike’s supervision including BB King, Bobby Bland, Johnny Ace, Boyd Gilmore, and more. We’ll spend Hours #4 & 5 presenting highlights from this set. This set is confined to the Blues years- sides that predate the years of Ike & Tina but what is there will more than make up for it. Make sure you’ve got fresh batteries in the hearing-aids – you don’t want to miss this. Plus week/session #3 in our continuing series, The Complete Wynonie Harris. We play a complete recording session each week in chronological order. This week’s session presents the first of the sides Wynonie recorded

for the Apollo Label with Illinois Jacquet. Only on BBS!

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 5/12/19
THE LAST MEDICINE SHOW

This week on BBS we revisit a real audio novelty, The Last Medicine Show. It was originally released as a two LP set on the Flyright Label. Recorded in Pittsboro North Carolina by Pete Lowery, it’s over 90 minutes worth of lost performance by Peg Leg Sam (Arthur Jackson) and Chief Thundercloud (Leo Kadot) as they play and sing, tell jokes that came over the hill on a crutch, and present skits all in an effort to sell you some medicine. This all happens during Hours #2 & 3. Tune in, buy a bottle but don’t drink it all in one sitting! The Last Medicine Show! And don’t forget week #2 of our continuing series The Complete Wynonie Harris. We present a complete recording by Wynonie each week until we play them all. This week a session from July 1945 with Wynonie accompanied by Johnny Otis and the All-Stars (which included boppers Howard McGhee and Teddy Edwards). Plus scope out Hour #1 featuring the Sounds of Bronzeville – Joe Williams with Basie, Dinah at Birdland, Cab Calloway with a radio broadcast from July 1945 + Cats & The Fiddle, James P. Johnson & Paul Quinichtte!

Only on BBS!
