From The Archive April 11, 2021 – The Mudcats – “Guitar Blues”

http://sbblues.com/2021/04/12/from-the-archive-april-11-2021-the-mudcats-guitar-blues/

Thanks Marty, this week on From The Archives we’re featuring some blues recorded at Blues Fest.

The Mudcats were the Blues Fest House Band. We had a band call in sick so I gathered some musicians from the audience and told everyone we were The Mudcats. After hosting the jam set and filling in again people started asking when The Mudcats were going to play. So we ended up on the schedule.

The core group was George Hinds, bass; Randy Gambill, drums, and I was on guitar. We always had guests and on September 2, 2007, we had Scott Mathis on lead guitar. Which was appropriate because the song we’re going to hear is “Guitar Blues”.

Now here are The Mudcats playing a song I wrote called “Guitar Blues”.

From The Archive April 4, 2021 – Caprice – “Papa Samba” http://sbblues.com/2021/04/05/from-the-archive-april-4-2021-caprice-papa-samba/

Thanks Marty, this week on From The Archives we’re featuring more jazz recorded right here in Jonesboro.

Caprice was a student band at ASU and I had been recording their recitals. When they decided to record an album they asked me and I was very excited to record these great songwriters and musicians. After all the work they had put into developing their band sound it was important to me to get their songs down before Tim Moore and Brandon Moore left ASU to continue their jazz education at North Texas State.

Playing in Caprice were Tim Moore, piano; Brandon Moore, sax; Alex Ditto, guitar; Matt Bounds, bass; and Addison Boling, drums.

Here they are now playing a Brandon Moore composition, “Papa Samba”.

Tonight! Inspired Unreality! Open game chat at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Our opening topic will be magic systems. ZDL mentioned the Native American influences in Gunnerkrigg and it got me to thinking about how a magic system based on Native American folklore would work. Spirituality, talking to animals, sweat lodges, drugs, transmutation. Magic systems are a fascinating part of RPGs and fantasy literature. Join us tonight for an interesting discussion.

As always bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic. If you have never been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invite for you here.

Tonight on Inspired Unreality our opening topic will be Befriending Monsters. Are all monsters evil? Can this be a viable strategy for the party? And how should the DM react to a player character communicating with the monsters that are put there for the party to fight? Should module writers include befriending monsters as an option?

As always Inspired Unreality open game chat is held Monday nights at 9:00 in the gameplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic. If you haven't been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invitation for you here.

From The Archive March 21, 2021 – Delta Legends – “These Blues”

Thanks Marty, this week on From The Archives we’re featuring some blues guitar from Delta Legends.

On June 10, 2018, I took a drive down to John Shepherd’s studio to record with Delta Legends. John Shepherd and Jeremy Burnett are both from Wynne and I live outside of Brookland. We recorded several songs and three of them are featured on our CD, “Two Woman Blues”. At the session John played guitar, Jeremy was on harp, and I’m on the bass. We all sing.

John is a virtuoso electric blues guitarist who plays especially well on slow blues standards like “Red House” and “Last Night”. One of the songs we recorded that day is a John Shepherd original called “These Blues”. John wrote it, John sings it, and John’s on guitar. Here’s Delta Legends now playing “These Blues”.
