Playlist for Blues Moon Radio June 28, 2011

The celebratory fireworks have not begun (as of this writing and from my earshot perspective) yet, but we are prepping for two big celebrations in Blues Moon Radio world...

Our loyal mascots, RockyDawg, Blues Defender, and Claudette, Blues Doggess (RIP = miss you baby grrrrrl), were both born on or near the Fourth of July, so we will celebrate this triad of fabulousness on tonight's Blues Moon Radio show.

Our first set has gone to the dogs and we'll start with a nod from our pal, Lucky, because I love German Police/Shepherd Dogs!

Laurence "Luckyman" Beall - Wanted by the Police
Birmingham Jug Band - German Blues
Blind Blake - Police Dog Blues
Etta Baker - Police Dog Blues (read my chapter on Baker in Making Notes: Music of the Carolinas)

Archie Edwards - The Road is Rough and Rocky
Mr. Google Eyes/Billy Ford - Rough and Rocky Road
The Nightengale Jubilaires - Rough and Rocky Road

Biscuit Miller - Sleepin' in the Dog House
Bob Corritore - No More Doggin'
Bull City Red - I Won't Be Dogged Around
Coco Montoya - Same Dog

J Edwards - Ain't Gonna Be Your Dog
Little Jimmy Reed - My Little Dog
Lula Reed - Watch Dog
Rory Block - Low Down Dirty Dog Blues

St. Louis Jimmy - Dog House Blues

Buddy Boy Hawkins - Shaggy Dog Blues


And now Rocky has to go lie down, eat a treatie and take a little nap before the Independence Day tribute.

Chris Duarte - Free 4 Me
(levels) Eddie Turner - Cost of Freedom
Robert Pete Williams - Free Again
Mildred Anderson - I'm Free
The Titans - Free and Easy

Drink Small - I'm Gonna Run On
Jerry "Boogie" McCain - I'll Come Running

Steve Freund - Wild Woman
Willie "61" Blackwell - She's Young and Wild

We didn't have time for these cuts... will play them (and the Abner Jay request) next week - promise!
Ruth Brown - Wild Wild Young Men

Tarheel Slim - Wildcat Tamer
Joe Williams/Sonny Boy Williamson - Wild Cow Moan

* These sites are not up-to-date, but CDs are still available for sale from these amazing female artists. Robin Rogers, who died last year, just after learning of her nomination for a Blues Foundation award, indeed received it.
Saffire is no longer actively touring, but they have left a legacy of powerhouse, yet whimsical, Blues from a mature female perspective.  Enjoy!

Thanks for tuning in to the Blues Moon with Clair DeLune radio show... Rocky and I thank you!
