All the blues all the time. An antidote to the moribund, corny and/or humorless blues programming generally found on the radio.

Welcome, neveract!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm ultradamno:

RIP Chris Bailey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm listener 126464:

yoo-hoo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm ultradamno:

I keep saying this, but could Eternally Yours be the most underrated album of 77-78? Absolute masterpiece.
  7:19pm Edward:

@ultradamno You have my interest!
  7:20pm Edward:

And on the same lines, I think Rosco Gordon must have been among the most undernoticed Sun artists.
  7:24pm Edward:

Hey maybe I have a dirty mind but I think Fluffy Hunter keeps avoiding saying "fuck."
  7:25pm Ira:

@Edward: read your comment too quickly, and at first thought you were suggesting that Rosco Gordon's one of the most underrated Satanists.
  7:26pm Edward:

@Ira: That too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm ultradamno:

When you're livin' that fluffy life, everyone just expects the dirty talk
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm neveract:

Jesse was swinging pretty good..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Handy Haversack:

Underrated Satanists not the worst blues band name.
  7:32pm Edward:

Sammy Davis Jr. and the Lesser Satanists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Matt Fiveash:

Rosco Gordon underrated in just about every regard, Satanism included.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm drr:

Did Sonny Boy Williamson know he had one of the best singing voices ever?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Matt Fiveash:

drr, good point, so many of the best singing voices belonged to singers better known for their instrument prowess- Elmore James and Little Walter both spring to mind. And SBW II too!
  7:37pm Edward:

I know everyone hates rock critics, but I love Christgau's one-sentence wrap-up of Sonny Boy: "Miller's writing was as factual as a police complaint, his groove as sexy as a swamp in June, and he sang in the strong, slurred, subtle voice of someone who'd been talking his way out of shit since he learned to say maybe."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm drr:

"Help Me" is the one that really shows it off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm neveract:

I get chills every time I hear Elmore James sing " The Sky Is Crying"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm ultradamno:

I don't hate rock critics, The Angry Samoans wouldn't have existed without them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm waiting in woburn:

here i'm is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Matt Fiveash:

Aw c'mon Ziti how yas doin there hon
Avatar 7:44pm Mailman Tom:

I saw Al Green perform at the Newport Jazz Festival in July 1969!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm prguitar:

Hey there Matt! Somewhere I was hearing Little Walter, and glad to see he's hangin' right here with you, Dave Myers, Robert Lockwood on guitars, Mr. Dixon and Mr. Below this evening! Regret not coming by too often, but glad to be here this evening, and hope to be around more as time goes on.. I think Magic Sam comes to mind, maybe better known for his guitar playing, but what a great voice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Matt Fiveash:

Hey pr guitah! Yes, add Magic Sam to the list
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm ziti ramone:

does this look infected to you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm ultradamno:

Sleepy? Not many tests of the name but you always knew where LaBeef was with him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm prguitar:

Yes sir!!
  7:48pm Edward:

Before Al went all in for the Lord, Elvis Costello was asked whether he'd ever had a religious experience and he said "Well, I saw Al Green once."

Jimmy MacDonough's biography of Al is... disturbing. But the footnotes do refer to many great performances on YouTube.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm drr:

Little known fact, all seven dwarves were named LaBeef.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Matt Fiveash:

All them guys: Grouchy, Mac, all of em
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Handy Haversack:

Yeah but it's literally the only word in Dwarven.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm drr:

Donner, Blitzen....
  7:49pm Edward:

Horny LaBeef.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm drr:

ooh, fun fact: I worked with a guy named Roy Milton in Texas and after about a year finally thought to ask if he was related to "Roy Milton".
"Oh yeah" was the answer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Handy Haversack:

The parentage of Snowy LaBeef never fully established.
Avatar 👻 7:53pm duke:

Is he a cousin of Beefy LaBeef?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Handy Haversack:

Thanks, Matty LaBeef! This all worked out just as drawn up. You were in the zone several hours in the past!

Later on, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm drr:

Later HH
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Matt Fiveash:

See yas all later! Thanks for tuning in tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm drr:

Edward: gonna take that comment on the bio as a recommendation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm neveract:

Thank you Matt!
  7:57pm Lothianman:

Blind Willie has a style like no other! thanks Matt !!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm radioronan:

Thanks Matt! Cheers y'all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm ultradamno:

What have I wrought? So many LaBeef patties...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm drr:

BWJ sounds like more than one person. Later Matt!
