Blues Moon Radio Playlist: Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012

Remembering September 11th

Tonight we remember a Tuesday 11 years ago; after the destruction of the World Trade Center. We hold those who suffered - directly and indirectly - from that tragedy in our hearts, and ask that you take a moment to remember and quietly reflect in your own way.

 The Blues Moon Radio Show went on the air with tribute tunes that Tuesday; and tonight we go on with songs about current events - in homage to those whose lives were affected, but who had to keep going on. It is about tribute, not sorrow; triumph and survival, not sadness. But, we still weep - for all of us were affected, and we shall never forget the feelings we had, and the bonds we forged during that terrible time.

*** Bless you all... especially first responders, who rush in when others rush out. ***********

Blues Moon Radio Playlist:

We'll start out this week with two cuts of Piedmont Raggin-Style Blues from a CD Wepecket Records sent me when I told them I'm teaching a course with a segment on Piedmont Blues... the CD is called "Pick a Peck of Piedmont Pickers" and I'm very fond of it. I think you will like it, too.
Gareth Hedges  Bell Buckle Rag
Lauren Sheehan  Spike Driver Blues

Next we'll travel a wee bit up the road, to the city that gave the British the blues during the American Revolution and helped turn the tide against those pesky Redcoats (we love you Brits now... but our ancestors, I'm told, couldn't sit down to a civilized dinner in those days!). Camden, S.C., is the home of the 16th annual Carolina Downhome Blues Festival Oct. 4-6, 2012. Be sure to make plans to attend this one-price-admits-to-all pub crawl that dazzles with talent.

Laurence Luckyman Beall - Blue Curtains
Daddy Mack Blues Band - Razor Blade
Peter Karp and Sue Foley - At the Same Time
Jeff Liberty - A House That You Ain't Built
Robert Lighthouse - Cat Squirrel Blues
Shrimp City Slim - I See Only You

Because I am always busy and worried about being late... somehow, these songs just crept into my mind... nothing can go wrong if you start out with a little Robert Johnson, right? For you early British Blues Rock-god fans... yes, this is the one that Cream covered so amazingly. You know Blues Moon Radio is going to treat you right with a play of the original. Ahhh... you can almost hear Eric Clapton getting inspired, can't you?

Robert Johnson - From Four Until Late
Tutu Jones - Chronic Late Arriver
Carey Bell's Blues Harp Band - Too Late
Madcats - Too Late
Gary Smith - Too Late
Armadillo Blues - Too Late to Change
Tarheel Slim - Much Too Late
Seth Walker - Lately I've Let Things Slide
Eden Brent - Later than You Think
Drink Small - Never Too Late to Do Right

Y'all - big surprise... if you haven't yet done this... go LIKE Drink Small's FB page... we are trying to work up to a huge base of fans to show him the love by his 80th birthday... Thanks! oxoxxoxoxo

- might be time for more - stay tuned...
