John Sinclair Radio Show 723: The Blues Is Now

Episode 723 is coming from the Earthwork Harvest Gathering on the farm outside of Lake City, Michigan, where I’m playing tonight on the stage in the barn with the great Billy Davis on guitar, Peter “Madcat” Ruth on harmonica, Drew Howard on guitar and a host of bluesmen playing selections from my blues album called Fattening Frgs For Snakes, but here on the radio show I’ll; be playing several cuts by Billy Davis on No Cover Records, plus more classic blues and R&B music I found in my archives, rough mixes of numbers from my pal Bob Baldori’s forthcoming boogie woogiie piano album with fellow pianist Arthur Magliazza, and ending with a poem of mine adapted from an interview with Howlin’ Wolf conducted by Michael Erlewine in 1969 and here featuring Harmonic Shah on the Mississippi saxophone.

John Sinclair Radio Show 722: All Around The World

 

Episode 722 is coming from my friend Johanna’s studio in Amsterdam Noord where I’m being hosted this week while I’m recovering from a freak accident after being knocked down by a bicycle while walking down the street by the Spui and hitting the bricks with my head. I’m better today after spending 24 hours in the hospital and now playing some classic blues and R&B music I found in my archives, including cuts from collections called I Smell A Rat: Early Black Rock, The Blues Guitar Box (Disc 1), Atlantic Rhythm & Blues 1947-1974 (Disc 1), Dance The Rock & Roll, Louisiana Swamp Blues, plus cuts from Walter “Wolfman” Washington & the Roadmasters and the Lyman Woodard Organization.
