Been Listening All Day Been Listening All Day : BLIND JOE TAGGART : CD
Many years before his bland brand of Folk Blues became so popular in the 1950's Folk star Josh White was one of East Coast Blues' most prodigious talents, his first ever recording date in the studio, however, had occurred in 1928 whilst he was still only 14 years of age, and in the company of Blind Joe Taggart. He played second guitar to Taggart on 4 numbers at that first session. One of Brunswick's scouts was searching for talent on the East Coast and discovered Taggart, in Charleston, West Virginia. The decision to record Joe, whose initial session took place in November 1926, marked the dawn of the 'guitar evangelist' era, with the Rev. Edward Clayborn and Blind Willie Johnson. At the time of his November 1926 recording date Blind Joe Taggart was 36 years old.

Charlotte Blues Charlotte Blues : VARIOUS ARTISTS : CD
During the heyday of field recording in the late 1920s and 1930s, Charlotte ranked among the most-visited locations. In fact, in the late 1930s it hosted more recording sessions than Nashville! The combination of good radio and lots of nearby places to play drew musicians from all over the South to perform live on WBT, making Charlotte an attractive stop for record labels seeking talent. Eventually record companies would establish permanent Southern studios in Nashville in order to be close to radio powerhouse WSM and its Grand Ole Opry, and Charlotte would fade from the spotlight. But recording never stopped in the Queen City. Hometown Bluesmen Wilbert Harrison and Nappy Brown had national hits in the 1950s. James Brown cut 'Papa's Got a Brand New Bag' in 1965, credited with launching funk music. REM made their first LP, 'Murmur', at Charlotte's Reflections Studio in the early 1980s, launching the 'alternative' rock wave.

Locust Ridge Saints Locust Ridge Saints : LOCUST RIDGE SAINTS : CD
A new recording by contemporary artists, the Locust Ridge Saints' eponymous debut EP contains music rooted in an array of traditional genres that when put through the band's unique filter becomes something new and original.
Inspiration can be traced back as far as the birth of recorded music right up to the present day with the band having one foot in the past and the other in the present with both eyes fixed firmly on the future.
The old and the new walk side by side down country dirt roads, across plantations, passed shotgun shacks and backwoods cabins, through sporting houses, barrelhouses, Juke joints and Honky Tonks before shaking the mud and dust off their boots as they enter the big city and beyond.
The songs contain a cast of characters from all walks of life but feature mainly those who live just outside the periphery. There are folks with holes straight through the middle, charlatan preachers, Russian poetesses, beheaded love rivals and of course, the broken hearted, all wrangled together for your listening pleasure.
So, as the song says: If you're looking to see clearly I won't keep nothing hid. Just gather all your things and head up to Locust Ridge
