Hugo Race (founding member of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and The Wreckery) and Michelangelo Russo are no strangers to either Hooker or the blues. They are about to embark on a national tour from July 2017, with the reimagining of Hooker, paying homage to one of the greats of rock and roll prehistory. Recorded in a single, continuous day and night live session at the Berlin studio of Einsturzende Neubauten by engineer Boris Wilsdorf, this is an epic album of sonic sorcery suspended in time and place.

The selection of tracks tells a story in itself; from the runaway twelve-year old boy of the desolate classics ‘Hobo Blues’ and ‘Country Boy’ to the worldly-wise elder Hooker of ‘The World Today’ (originally from Hooker ‘n Heat) and The Motor City’s Burning (a cover of Hooker’s cover of the MC5 classic), the album traces the arc of a life from pre-modernity to the Now on the 100th anniversary of Hooker’s birth. Race and Russo's reimagining of Hooker is simultaneously blues, electronica, avant-garde and ambient, a homage to one of the greats of rock and roll prehistory, delivered with a sting and a twist more relevant than ever to The World Today.--- flyingsaucerclub.com.au

 

Co można zrobić w XXI wieku z klasyką bluesa? Race i Russo mają na to swoją receptę! Tych panów łączy miłość do bluesa. Postanowili sięgnąć po repertuar Johna Lee Hookera, poświęcając mu całe wydawnictwo zatytułowane „John Lee Hooker’s World Today” (19.05.2017 | Gusstaff Records CD / Glitterhouse LP).

Michelangelo Russo to włoski artysta wizualny, muzyk i eksperymentator – w tym przypadku harmonijkarz wspomagający się elektroniką. Materiał na „John Lee Hooker’s World Today” został zarejestrowany w trakcie jednej całodniowej i całonocnej sesji w berlińskim studiu Borisa Wilsdorfa (Einstürzende Neubauten).

Mamy tu nagrania Hookera z różnych okresów: od „Hobo Blues” i „Country Boy” po „The World Today”. Oczywiście nie są to sztampowe covery grane z myślą o taniej spelunie wypełnionej piwnymi dziadami. Domyślam się, że reakcje ortodoksyjnych bluesowców na aranżacje Race’a i Russo mogą być różne, wręcz rysujące na ich twarzach grymas niezrozumienia. Mroczna chrypa Hugo Race’a i jego gitarowe eksperymenty, bardzo dobrze się czują w towarzystwie noise’owo-ambientowej harmonijki Włocha. W ich interpretacjach jest dużo szacunku dla oryginału, a jednocześnie bije z nich nieustające źródło inspiracji. ---Łukasz Komła, nowamuzyka.pl

This Dutch blues band was formed in the Hague around 1967, becoming a regular outfit from 1969.

Although best known in the Netherlands, Livin’ Blues also gained a following elsewhere in Europe, especially in Poland.

The band recorded from 1968, cutting a few singles with its first album coming in 1969. The band appears to have drifted from the limelight after the early 80s but interest in its recorded work remained high into the new millennium.

Despite the freedom gained in the American Civil War, most African-Americans had seen little change in their living conditions by the beginning of the 20th Century. Ironically, it would take another conflict to change the outlook. The First World War created jobs for unskilled workers in the North and many took the opportunity to escape the cloying restrictions of the South. The unsophisticated sounds of the country were no longer relevant to their lifestyles and the music changed accordingly. Without the blues there would have been no rock 'n' roll, and this generous 50 track compilation is nothing less than the roots of that revolution. ---Editorial Reviews, amazon.com

 

Let me be upfront and clear - I love Delta Blues guitar work and the integrity of emotion that can only come from living a life trapped in the hard situation found during the birth of these blues. This is a time that is past and will most likely never be recreated again - thankfully for those involved. That said, these times did create an intense state of music and lyrics that I am most thankful were captured for me to appreciate and empathize with.

These two discs do capture many of the great delta bluesmen performing many of there best works. I feel it is a fine compilation of the works from the era.

I tend to like the songs with a spiritual bent and those expressing the deep lonesomeness of hopelessness associated with being trapped in a hard and uncaring society with no way out. My favorite song by far is "Dark Was The Night - Cold Was The Ground" by Blind Willie Johnson. The guitar actually speaks to you in blue words while the lyrics are only spiritual moans - a deep powerfully sad and blue emotion. No amount of money could ever produce such a song. Listening to these blues it is easy to see how musicians who have a deep love of what music can emote were attracted to the Delta Blues era. The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Eric Clapton, amongst many others, were all fascinated with the sound and emotion created in this era. The stories in the songs run from the standard male/female relations, spirituals, death and down and out hopelessness.

If you are looking for smooth voices and songs to dance to, don't think about these recordings. These recordings are deep sadness and expressions of human emotions which help all survive rough times. The recordings go all the way back to the late 1920's and many are surprisingly good for the era and situation in which they were recorded. If you appreciate raw talent and deep emotion - enjoy it all!!! ---Phil, amazon.com

The slide guitar wizard's immaculate fretwork was never captured more imaginatively than during his early-'60s stay with Mel London's Age/Chief labels. 21 fascinating tracks from that period include Hooker's savage instrumentals "Blue Guitar," "Off the Hook," "The Leading Brand," "Blues in D Natural," and "How Long Can This Go On," along with tracks by A.C. Reed, Lillian Offitt, and Harold Tidwell that cast Hooker as a standout sideman. ---Bill Dahl, AllMusic Review

An excellent disc all around, available domestically and at domestic prices. The band is in a solid groove with the usual stomps, shuffles, good-time funk and delicious slow blues. During the last few years, Bassett has begun to sound less like '60s-era B.B. King and on this disc he seems to come into full bloom. The band, too, is full of first-class musicians. They draw from disperate sources and concentrate on laying down a tight foundation which lovingly supports Bassett's inventive single-string leads and chordal rhythm guitar work. In this day of gadgets and floor boxes, his sound is refreshingly clean and uncluttered and a pleasure to listen to. If you like straight-ahead electric blues, you can't go wrong with this disc. ---Sigmund Finman, AllMusic Review

Mississippi John Hurt - Composer, Primary Artist 

 

Founded in 1950 by brothers Seymour Solomon and Maynard Solomon just as the LP format was taking hold (it had been introduced to the market two years previously), Vanguard Records took full advantage of the longer playing time afforded and began life as a classical label, moving easily into jazz, then gospel, bluegrass, blues, and folk (as Joan Baez's label, they had a high profile during the 1960s folk revival), eventually experimenting with rock groups like the Frost, although folk and classical remained the label's forte. Vanguard was sold to the Welk Group in 1985. The new owners set about revitalizing the imprint's back catalog, and also began adding contemporary recordings of country and pop artists as the 21st century began. To celebrate the imprint's rapidly approaching 60th anniversary, Vanguard has released a series of brief artist samplers (Vanguard Visionaries) from the label's peak 1960s and early-'70s era, including this one from Mississippi John Hurt. A gentle blues songster with an impressive acoustic guitar style, Hurt had made a handful of recordings with OKeh Records over a pair of sessions in 1928, but never developed a professional career and dropped from sight shortly afterwards. Hurt was rediscovered in 1965 during the folk and blues revival, and the considerable guitar skills and gentle vocal approach that highlighted his 1928 recordings were still very much intact. He recorded four albums for Vanguard (one of them was actually a concert recording made at Oberlin College in 1965) in the mid-'60s, each of them a pure delight. This brief sampler draws from those four albums and includes fine versions of such traditional country blues fare as "Candy Man," "Stagolee," and "Spike Driver Blues." ---Steve Leggett, AllMusic Review

Even more impressive than his previous Alligator set, thanks to top-flight material like "Don't Cloud Up on Me," "Let the Chips Fall Where They May," and "Locked Out of Love," the fine house band at Greenlee's King Snake studios, and Peterson's own rapidly developing attack on two instruments. The material blended straight-ahead blues, Memphis soul and funky grooves that placed Lucky Peterson on the cutting edge of the blues.

Sometimes I hear an album which is simply very difficult to describe- The musicians in The Great Metropolitan Steam Band blended styles which were popular in the American ragtime and vaudeville music of the 1920's and the 1930's with musical styles that were popular among the progressive rock bands and the folk- rock musicians of the late 1960's, thus creating a unique "fusion" or blend here- I don't know what else I can say about this album, if you listen to it, it become very obvious from the first 2 songs that they're not playing 1920's or 1930's style songs true to the style of that era, they are intentionally blending styles from different eras. I am NOT a music historian, I have only the knowledge of a layperson here, the lyrics and the singing styles sound more reminiscent of songs from the 1920's and the 1930's, some of the riffs that the guitarist and the pianist are playing sound very late 1960's-esque to me- The sound is very interesting, the songs are all well done, and I do recommend this album- I don't know anything else about this band, they may have been blending the styles from different eras to make a comment about a comparison between some of the social or the political issues of the 1920's and the 1930's with the social and the political issues of the latter half of the 1960's, or they might have just been having fun blending styles from different eras purely for fun... --- cott Benowitz, amazon.com

Chris Kramer was born on February 3rd 1970 in Marl, Germany. As a Cole miner´s son, naturally, he is from the Ruhr area of Germany.

The “Grafter” – mentality of his hard working ancestors runs in his blood as well as the special humor that is so typical for people that have learned to find something good in even the bad moments of life.

At the age of 13 he discovered the Blues. At 18 he started to seriously make music: Blues music.

After he finished his A-levels, the civilian service and training in industrial sales management he decided to make a career out of his hobby and since 1994 he lives on his music.

He has conducted countless harmonica – workshops and has written four extensive textbooks on the subject. His Blues duo – the Bluebyrds – was considered “Germany´s most wanted Blues duo” for a long time. After 10 years together and four CD´s “Crazy” Chris and “Slidin” John parted ways. --- chris-kramer.de
