+ LAST WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 8/12/18
 BBS ANNUAL SALUTE TO SUMMER

This week on BBS we’ll present our Annual BBS Salute To Summer. Mostly it’s a matter of finding as many different versions of the Gershwin classic Summertime as I can find in my collection. BBS Factoid!; Do you know there are almost 2000 different versions of Summertime listed in Tom Lord’s Jazz Discography – So true! In previous years we’d put together an hour’s worth of different versions and then repeat it one more time during our final hour.  This year I’ve worked to find two separate completely different hours. We’ll see how it works? Tune in - Only on BBS!

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 8/12/18
THE JOE DAVIS & BEACON RECORD LABELS

This week on BBS we’ll give a spin to sides issued originally issued on the Joe Davis and Beacon Labels. After years as a music publisher Joe Davis jumped into the record game by starting his own label in the mid 1940s. Among the various genres of music Joe recorded we’ll spend our time sorting through his R&B records. He recorded many obscure but talented singers and made records by a handful of better known artists like The Five Red Caps, Una Mae Carlisle and Savannah Churchill. Bruce Bastin spent the mid 1980s reissuing material originally produced by Joe Davis. We’ll use those as our source material. He also wrote a bio of Joe Davis called Never Sell A Copyright.

I’ll spend Hours #2-3 &4 reading the book aloud (just kidding). Don’t miss this one – Whoa! the excitement meter is pinned - Only on BBS!
