Hopkins started his musical career in the early s as the pianist with Screaming Lord Sutch's Savages, which also included Ritchie Blackmore, founder of Deep Purple.
He began his career as a session musician in London in the early Sixties and quickly became one of the most in-demand players on the thriving session scene there, contributing his fluid and dexterous boogie-woogie influenced piano style to many hit recordings.
Roger Powell: Cosmic Furnace. He is featured heavily on the classic Exile on Main St. He started to form his own band around this time but decided against it after the Stones tour. He had planned on using Prairie Prince on drums, and Pete Sears on bass. Hopkins failed to make the Stones' tour of Europe due to ill health and, aside from a guest appearance indid not play again with the Stones live on stage. He continued to record with the Stones untiland on solo records of members of the Stones up to The band completed their eponymous debut album, however the project was doomed from the start.
Their record label, Fontana Records didn't promote the album, and declared bankruptcy before the members could tour. Re-released on Columbia inthe album is a rare opportunity to hear Hopkins sing. Recorded in London and mixed and mastered in Los Angeles, this is probably Hopkins' best solo album. Hopkins lived in Mill Valley, California, for several years. During this time he worked with several local dealer bands and continued to record in San Francisco. Hopkins would play his songs and spin tales of his time in London's early rock LP and his father's piano playing in England during World War Two.
Hopkins never allowed any of these sessions to be recorded, citing his complete disgust with the music business. One of his complaints throughout his career was that he did not receive royalties from any of his recording sessions, because of his status at the time as merely a "hired hand", as opposed to pop stars with agents.
As a session player, Hopkins was renowned for his ability to give accomplished performances with little or no rehearsal, and for his quirky habit of reading comic books at recording sessions.
Hopkins died aged 50, in Nashville, Tennessee, of complications from intestinal surgery. At the time of his death he was working on his autobiography with Ray Coleman. He was survived by his wife, Moira. Leon Russell - Almost Piano - repost. By Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Allmusic. One of many self-recorded and self-released albums Russell kicked out in the new millennium, this sequenced and sprightly offering clearly betrays its origins as a computerized creation.
As careful as the production sounds, the compositions often seem as if Russell just set up and started playing, giving the tracks their titles afterward. Still, Russell remains a fluid, engaging player, and devoted Leon Russell fans might enjoy putting this on as background music.
When Buddy Miles died on February 28th,it marked the passing of one of rock and roll's most flamboyant characters. Primarily known for his skill as a drummer, Buddy played with and for a who's who of rock and roll's elite as well as carving out a successful solo career as Album) band leader.
Aside from the seventeen albums he recorded under his own name, he appeared on albums with Michael Bloomfield and Electric Flag, Gregg Allman, Carlos Santana he was vocalist for Santana from - 84and as Album) voice of the California Raisins. He is most famous though for his association with Jimi Hendrix. Ironically his time with Jimi was limited to only a year before Jimi's management fired him. Billy still believes that the idea of an all black rock and roll band, Billy Cox was the bass player, made the record companies nervous at the time.
I Wont Hold My Breath - The Siegel-Schwall Band - The Siegel-Schwall Band (Vinyl were probably scared it would have a negative impact on record sales. Jorma Kaukonen - Magic repost. On request! Like most bar bands, the group has a tendency to get silly and corny, "It Ain't Easy Bein' Me" and "Blues Attack" being prime examples, just one listen to the sweeping slide guitar in "Devil Comes Knockin'" or the singalong chorus of "One Good Reason" kind of makes you wish you were in the crowded audience, surrounded by cigarette smoke and cheap beer.
An attraction that, after all, is the mark of a good bar band. Mike Zito Blue Room. On the title track, "Can't Seem to Stop Myself," and "Wound Up," guitarist Charlie Bingham comes as close in inspiration and inventiveness to the great riff-master Keith Richards as one possibly can without sounding like an imitator.

King Biscuit Boy. Blues harpist and vocalist Newell aka King Biscuit Boy will be remembered as one of his country's finest unsung musicians. Newell began playing harp at the age of 12, and made his recording debut in with the rock 'n' roll group the Barons on the "Bottleneck" single.
Various name changes ensued, with the band performing their increasingly blues-orientated material as Son Richard And The Chessmen and Son Richard And The Gooduns, but despite a popular live following a series of failed record deals led to them calling it a day in Despite warm reviews for the album Newell moved on once more, reviving the Gooduns name for a solitary album before launching a solo career.
Newell, who had suffered from alcohol problems throughout his life, was found dead at his house in Hamilton in January Fabulous" Rubin were all members of the all-star band that backed John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd in their Blues Brothers incarnation between and Rare Earth In Concert. That's one way of explaining how this live double-LP set came to be released -- that and the fact that Rare Earth's peak years coincided with the commercial heyday of the live album.
Whatever the reason, Rare Earth in Concert was the most expansive live recording ever issued by Motown Records. What's more, it all works in terms of being an honest representation of this band -- not that they compromised much in the studio, where their rendition of "Get Ready" ran 20 minutes, but playing to an audience was what they'd been about from the start, and everything here resonates with the joy of that process.
And in addition to capturing the band in top form, the recording itself provided a beautifully vivid sound picture, every instrument and voice captured spot-on, all the more amazing considering the size of this band and the complexities of their sound -- flutes, guitars acoustic and electrickeyboards, saxes, percussion, and more are all here in close detail, but nothing more solid in the mix than John Persh's lead bass work in the middle section of the and-a-half-minute "Get Ready.
The passage of time has also allowed one to appreciate the full technical range of this record -- bylive recording had become so sophisticated that the producers were even able to give an expansive stereo sound picture, which came out well on the vinyl and is even better on the CD reissue, for those lucky enough to be able to find the latter. This album captures Frank in his element where he shines the brightest. My favorite song off this record is by far "Johnny B.

Hailing from Denmark, this three piece recorded this ultra rare album in !! An impressive rock sound, with some fiery lead guitar breaks and high levels of energy make this well worth investigating!!

Justin Sherill: A fun album to listen to, especially if you are a blues fan. Diddy Wah Diddy is a Bo Diddley tune. This album is short, but it's well-produced and good if you are a fan of music of that era.
Graham Johnston: This mini-album features the biggest, rumblingest blues tunes ever, and contains many pleasing suggestions of what would follow. Great fun. By Menegon at maio 07, Bad Loser 2. Crow Jane 3.
