    Eric Burdon & The Animals, Eric Is Here, 1967, MGM USA, SE-4433

    Released in USA only. The Animals are: Benny Golson and Horace Ott with their orchestras. On this one Eric Burdon is the Sinatra for the hippies. Listen to Randy Newman's "Mama told me not to come" A2.
    Indeed: sounds great in STEREO! Good old American vinyl...

    I don't want to fade away...

    On August 24th, 2019, the Tedeschi Trucks Band performed almost the whole groundbreaking Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs album live during a show at the Lockn' festival at Arrington, VA. They did it with that much dedication and authenticity. Even that unreal drum pattern during most of Bell Bottom Blues was perfectly reproduced. So this triple LP has it's own spot next to the Derek & the Dominos original, which had been released just the day Susan Tedeschi was born. I wish I could have attended this show.

    James Gang, Passin' Thru, 1972, ABC USA, ABCX 760

    Domenic Troiano: underestimated guitarist. Replaced Joe Walsh. Was replaced by Tommy Bolin. Both of them made a career.
    Roy Kenner: underestimated vocalist. Never made a famous career.
    All tracks composed by Kenner and Troiano.
    This album: also underestimated, but not forgotten, passin' thru all these (50!)years...
    Curiously the record is labelled "The James Gang Bang", which was the next album with Tommy Bolin.

    Back Door, Same, 1973, WB Germany, WB 46 231

    Irrepressible joy of playing: these three musicians went their own way. Unorthodox and daring in 1973.
    No guitars. The bass guitar replaced rhythm and lead guitar. Colin Hodgkinson: one of the most creative bass players ever.
    Ron Aspery sax

    Chris Farlowe & Thunderbirds, Featuring Albert Lee, 1977, Bellaphon Germany, CR 3019

    The Thunderbirds (until 1968) included Dave Greenslade kb, Carl Palmer dr, and musicians' musician Albert Lee, guitar. "Bugs" Waddell, bass.
    These tracks were recorded in Farlowe's Columbia days for 45's and a 33 album. Exception: "Stormy Monday", which was released on Sue Records. To preserve his identity (and his contract with Columbia), Farlowe called himself Little Joe Cook. Unsurprisingly some record buyers thought he was black.

    Chris Farlowe & Thunderbirds, Buzz With The Fuzz, 1987, Decal England, LIK 16

    "Buzz With The Fuzz" was a Mod anthem in 1965. Unfortunately someone at EMI panicked when they realised what the song was about and the 45rpm record was withdrawn after two weeks. This gave it an immediate underground reputation and has been one of the most sought after collectors items ever since: https://www.discogs.com/de/release/6...-Youre-The-One

    Champion Jack Dupree, The Woman Blues Of, 1961, Folkways USA, FS 3825

    Big surprise in a little beautiful thrift store in Schleitheim, near Schaffhausen, Switzerland:
    With original autograph card: "Best wishes from Champion Jack Dupree, of New Orleans, USA, 1963". Probably written by his wife "Manager Shirley Dupree, Telephone 27 74 92 Zurich".
    Original 1962 signature by Mr. Dupree himself on back cover.

    Dupree's career was interrupted by military service in World War II. He was a cook in the United States Navy and was held by the Japanese for two years as a prisoner of war.

    After the war, his biggest commercial success was "Walkin' the Blues", which he recorded as a duet with Teddy McRae. This led to several national tours and eventually a European tour. In 1959, he played an unofficial (and unpaid) duo gig with Alexis Korner at the London School of Economics.
    Dupree moved to Europe in 1960, settling first in Switzerland and then Denmark (in the anarchist-occupied Freetown Christiania in Copenhagen),[7] England, Sweden and, finally, Germany.[8] On June 17, 1971, he played at the Montreux Jazz Festival, in the Casino Kursaal, with King Curtis, backed by Cornell Dupree on guitar, Jerry Jemmott on bass and Oliver Jackson on drums. The recording of the concert was released in 1973 as the album King Curtis & Champion Jack Dupree: Blues at Montreux on the Atlantic label. (Wikipedia)

    In the 60s and 70s Champion Jack Dupree (1909 in New Orleans-1992 in Hannover) lived in Europe, because nearly nobody wanted to hear his music in USA. Europe, esp. England, Germany and (later also) Switzerland, was very interested in the original Blues music. These foreign Blues roots were very important for the development of Rock music in Europe. I remember very well those legendary concerts of Champion Jack Dupree recorded and broadcasted by German SWF3-Radio. I sat in front of the radio with a Grundig tape recorder microphone in my hand...
