CORNBREAD MORSELS II - A Six Pack of Tiny Little Tidbits Worth Sinking Your Teeth Into!

Big George Brock – Round Two
Big George Brock – Round Two
2006 – Cat Head

Down home acoustic country blues that delivers a wallop. Joined by Bill Abel and Lightnin' Malcolm with special guest Hubert Sumlin on a couple tracks. This is the way blues music used to sound, and should sound. The once boxer gets back into the ring on his second release, with a CD just as powerful as his first – it’s a knockout!

Bernard Allison – Energized, Live In Europe
Bernard Allison – Energized, Live In Europe
2006 – Ruf Records

A double CD, recorded live in Germany, 2005 (also available on DVD). Bernard is guitar great Luther Allison’s song, though no lightweight himself and delivers hot electric blues with a gospel-like twinge on these 16 tracks, five of which are instrumentals. Missed the European tour? Pick up the CD (DVD too) and prepare to get blown away.
Magic Slim & The Teardrops – Anything Can Happen
Magic Slim & The Teardrops – Anything Can Happen
2005 – Blind Pig

A live recording from Chicago Bluesman that was born in Mississippi in the 30’s, came to Chicago in the 50’s, highlighting his limitless talent as a living blues legend. Slim shakes things up with high tempos, medium-tempos and slows down on Muddy’s Still A Fool. Twelve bar remains the guiding groove throughout. I really enjoyed this one y’all!

Bob Riedy Blues Band – Late Freight Out Of Chicago

Bob Riedy Blues Band – Late Freight Out Of Chicago
2004 – Chicago Sound Recordings

Late Freight has been digitally remastered, it was originally recorded in 1977, never pressed to vinyl and is now available for the first time. Featuring covers from legendary blues writers such as Muddy, Willie Dixon, Otis Spann, Robert Johnson, Carey Bell (also on this CD, vocal and harmonica), and Walter Jacobs, also includes two originals from Riedy. Late Freight is a must-listen for blues fans, this after all is Chicago Blues and really gets my mojo working.

Kenny Traylor – Tribute
Kenny Traylor – Tribute
2003 – Topcat

Texas blues veteran Kenny Traylor’s tribute to the great seminal blues masters who were Kenny's biggest influences. The fifteen tracks feature Kenny’s captivating vocals and Texas guitar licks. John Garza played bass, and can be heard on his sons, Los Lonely Boys newest CD.
Chicago Blues Harmonica Project
Chicago Blues Harmonica Project – Diamonds In The Rough, featuring The Chicago Bluesmasters
2005 – Severn Records

Dusty Brown, Omar Coleman, Russ Green, Larry Cox, Harmonica Khan #1 and Little Addison on twelve tracks. Wow! Prepare to have your socks knocked off. This CD is phenomenal! Chicago Blues Harp lives on.

'Cornbread' Ciao' for now, peace.
Peter 'Cornbread' Cohen, CBP
