'Cornbread'By Cornbread

Tommy Bankhead - Message To St. Louis Tommy Bankhead - Message To St. Louis
{Recorded July 1999, released 2000 | Fedora Records}

Eleven fantastic tracks from the great St. Louis Bluesman. Bankhead sings/plays guitar on ten originals and the classic blues song "Goin' to Chicago". This CD is Tommy Bankhead's debut on Fedora Records.

Bankhead began playing house parties and fish frys in rural Mississippi and Arkansas, then joined the blues legends Howlin' Wolf and Sonny Boy Williamson, to the "six-week gig" in St. Louis that has lasted nearly two decades, Unbelievably, this is only Bankhead's second recording the first Please Mr. Foreman 1983. Bankhead is joined by Erskine Oglesby, whose tenor was part of the Ike & Tina Revue, Charles 'Nephew' Davis, a veteran himself who played with James Brown and Little Milton, and the piano playing of Bob Lohr.

This CD is a necessity for all blues collections! I loved this CD, it has been added to my top ten list. See Tommy's other reviews just below!

Rating 5 out of 5 - hey y'all it doesn't get better than that!

Ciao' for now
