Old style and old school but there isn’t much that ElectroBluesSociety could do wrong with their cover of “Little Red Rooster” especially with Boo Boo Davis roped in to lead them along the path to blues righteousness and our listening pleasure.
today there is a new single released on KuvVer Records
Again a classic Chicago blues song from Howlin Wolf with a little ‘electrofication’
Released digital only and available on all streaming and download platforms worldwide. Here are a few links
today KuvVer Records released a new single from our session with Boo Boo Davis
Here is the fourth track from the recording session that we did in October last year with Mississippi blues man Boo Boo Davis. Together we went back to the classic Chicago blues and this time it’s another Howlin Wolf classic with a little ‘electrofication’. This song was a regular in the repertoire of the Davis Brothers Band in the sixties and the seventies.
The track is released digital only and available on all download and streaming platforms. Here are a few links
this what Norman Darwen wrote in BLUES IN THE SOUTH about one of the singles we released together with Boo Boo Davis:
Mississippi born singer and drummer Boo Boo Davis goes back to his roots on this “digital single” from KuvVer Records. He used to sing this Howling Wolf song with The Davis Brothers Band when they played in a juke joint in Saint Louis. Maybe the tough vocal and wailing harmonica were more or less the same, even the loping rhythm, as the electronics are not really in evidence here, meaning that this is just a very fine, down-home blues performance. More please!
There is no better night of the year to return to Sweet Home Chicago than Christmas Eve, Xmas in Chi-town during the Reign of King Richard (Daley) the First (“Too ra loo ra loo ral…”) was a joyous fulcrum week at the bottom of the year filled with food, spirits, parties, singing, crying and fighting. Even now I can close my eyes and fill my sinuses with the heavenborn heat of clean steam rising from the boiled fresh meats which would then swirl and fight with the ancient greasy smoke of the grilled meats at every restaurant vent on the block as I cruised alleys on foot homeward from Maxwell Street on Christmas morning fingering the night’s haul and minding the curves, always minding the curves. Or was it Taylor Street? Too old to care now. Musical giants Jan Mittendorp and Jasper Mortier form ElectroBluesSociety and this week they have teamed with Mississippi bluesman Boo Boo Davis to revive another great song. This time it’s the Elmore James classic, “Dust My Broom,” Enjoy.
Another cover version of a classic blues song and this time one that was made famous by Elmore James.
As you can hear we added only a little bit of ‘electrification’
The single is released digital only and available on all stream and download platforms
this is what EastPortlandBlog wrote about our new single:
This is so beautiful it hurts. This is live Chicago blues. I’m thirty years past Chicago and I’d swear I rode the Englewoood-Howard B Train tonight, shared a bottle of Christian Brothers on the down low and got clotheslined by “the Hawk” wind when I transferred for the Ravenswood line. Heaven on a bone, Smiffy’s Ribs, testifyin’ for the blues, the signal’s coming in strong, someone got set free tonight.
In October we spent a few hours recording with Boo Boo Davis. For this session we went back to basics and together we (re) visited some classic Chicago blues. For Boo Boo this was a trip down memory lane because all these songs were regulars in the Davis Brohers Band repertoire during the 18 years that they were the weekend house band in Tubby’s Red Room, a famous juke joint in East St Louis.
We recorded seven songs that will be released digital only as individual singles on KuvVer Records in the coming months. Yesterday we released the first one and it is now available on all platforms.
