We can point out, for example, an unrecognizable version of the standard "Got my mojo working". There are 3 tracks on the original LP and 5 in the CD reissue. Surrounded by Milt Buckner organArnett Cobb saxophoneMichael Silva drumshe gives some rather inspired interpretations of Jordan's classics : "Somebody done changed the lock of my door", "Is you is or is you ain't my baby", "Ain't that just like a woman".
The year was really successful for Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown. On the original LP, both sides were distinct : the first - the best - was heavily loaded with fast and swinging tempos "She winked her eye", "Cold strange", "Presser cooker" while the second consisted mainly of slow blues "Justice blues".
As with the previous disc, there are many more or less complete reissues on CD. After many blues focused records, Clarence approaches Country - one of his favorite styles - with elements of Cajun and Southern Rock. The whole is quite uneven, but some tracks stand out like the irresistible "Loup garou" and "Gate's express". An album that might disappoint blues fans.
It is during those sessions that he met Jim Bateman who became his manager and producer until the end of his career. Bateman will be one of the great promoters of Clarence's success throughout the 80's and 90's. Shortly after this "Down south in the bayou country", he plays behind the Professor Longhair on the beautiful "Rock 'n roll gumbo". Taking the same musical direction as "Down south in the bayou country", this record continues this Country-based cocktail.
Despite some notable tracks "Bogalusa boogie man", "Hurricane"this album just fails to reach the same level as the previous one. In the CD version, there are 5 additional titles in which Clarence is alone on guitar. En outre, ce disque est le premier co-produit par Jim Bateman manager et producteur de Clarence. As for Clarence, he is always effective and gifted on both guitar and violin. In addition, this album is the first co-produced by Jim Bateman Clarence's manager and producer.
The program is still fairly uneven but several good moments are worth listening : "Street corner", "Honey boy" and the instrumental "Tippin 'in" and "Up Much At All - Various - Kerrville Folk Festival: The Silverwolf Years (CD) the devil". Dans ces bandes issues du festival d'Atlanta, Much At All - Various - Kerrville Folk Festival: The Silverwolf Years (CD) trouve deux bons morceaux de Clarence : "Pressure cooker" et "Frosty".
Aucune information concernant la date de ce concert. In these tapes captured at the Atlanta Festival, we find two good tracks of Clarence : "Pressure Cooker" and "Frosty".
No information regarding the date of this concert. Heard batterie. The two men are supported by excellent Milt Hinton bass and J. Heard drums. Mainly composed of instrumental tracks, the disc - very inspired - is somewhere between Jazz and Blues : "Heat wave", "First take and blue", "Slow train 1".
We feel a lot of connivance and complicity between the two leaders. La set-list est constamment excitante et surprenante en particulier les deux compositions de Clarence "Justice blues" et "The drifter" mais aussi les reprises spectaculaires de "Take the A train", "Busted" et "Caldonia".
Association between Country guitarist Roy Clark and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown in a warm emulation atmosphere, widely perceptible while listening to this record. The set-list is constantly exciting and surprising especially the two compositions of Clarence "Justice blues" and "The drifter" but also spectacular covers of "Take the A Train", Much At All - Various - Kerrville Folk Festival: The Silverwolf Years (CD) and "Caldonia".
As usual in this collection, there is little or no information on dates and musicians. In addition, the sound quality is really fair. Despite those negative points, this performance is rather consistent.
Clarence is in great shape on guitar. The selected program contains some notable curiosities such as covers of "Frosty", "Take the A train", "Boogie woogie" and "Saint Louis blues". A convincing performance with great moments like his cover of "One o'clock jump" a cover of Count Basie that Clarence greatly appreciate.
Pour ce label, il va graver une des meilleures parties de son oeuvre. In the late 70's, Clarence moved to New Orleans. InJim Halsey allows him to embark on a historic tour of 6 weeks through Soviet Union. Soon after, Clarence signed with Rounder imprint. For this label, he will cut one of the best parts of his work. Produced by Jim Bateman and Scott Billington, recorded in Bogalusa Louisiana"Alright again" effectively established itself as one of his most successful albums, a bit short but superb from start to finish.
Much At All - Various - Kerrville Folk Festival: The Silverwolf Years (CD) is, as often, brilliant on the guitar, especially on his composition "Dollar got the blues", but also on sparkling Texas covers : "Frosty", "Strollin' with Bones", "I feel alright again". The final instrumental "Gate walks to board" also deserves all the attention.
After the success obtained in Europe with the previous albums, this first disc for Rounder allowed him to get back to the American scene foreground. Featured again at the Kerrville festival Texas the following year, he plays a long slow blues "Sometimes I feel myself slippin'".
Many great titles like "Information blues", "Stranded" in which Clarence is once again imperial on guitar"Ain't that dandy", "Flippin' out". In the end, the result remains just below "Alright again". It's like a religious experience. I want you to laugh and cry on the same night and go home feeling like you've fallen in love all over again with someone or something you hold dear.
Since the Fall of he's produced and hosted the songwriter's series at Houston's legendary Anderson Fair. I love these shows! Through the years he's worked on numerous other recording projects and written for stage and film notably the feature film "Blue Days Lost" and two co-written children's musicals, "Noah and the Ark" and "Journey of the Wise Men" produced by the Excellent Theatre Company in Houston.
A second LP was recorded for Much At All - Various - Kerrville Folk Festival: The Silverwolf Years (CD) but the master tapes were lost.
