This 2nd volume of our Texas Blues series starts with James "Thunderbird" Davis (born 10 November 1938 in Mobile, Al), a singer at first associated with Guitar Slim (Eddie Jones) for whom he opened the shows in Louisiana and Texas. At the end of the 1950's, James settled in Houston and started a personal career, recording ten tracks for Duke, hitting the charts with What else is there to do and Blue Monday. In 1966, James Davis was constantly on tour throughout the USA with Joe Tex and O.V. Wright. But during the mid-1970's, he became a preacher and stopped singing the blues. Rediscovered in 1988 by Black Top's Hammond Scott, James recorded a very good album Check Out Time and resumed his career. But he died of a heart attack on stage at Saint Paul (Minnesota) on January, 24th 1992.

 

Elmore Nixon (born in Crowley, La. on 17 November 1933) is well known by the blues fans for his striking piano work behind Lightnin' Hopkins, Clifton Chenier and numerous other Texas artists. But he also recorded quite substantially under his name in a R&B vein between 1949 and 1955. He died in Houston on December 11th, 1973 after surgery.

 

At last, saxophonist, flute player and composer Harold Bennett (born 7th August 1939 in Houston, Tx) has been very active in the studios, recording behind dozens of blues, R&B and jazz artists like Teddy Reynolds, Johnny Copeland, Bobby Bland, Sam Cooke, B.B. King.... He was a mainstay of several Houston clubs. He also recorded under his name and here are some of his most honking bluesy titles, waxed for the tiny Copa label. --- Gérard Herzhaft, jukegh.blogspot.com
