THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF FEBRUARY 13-14, 2016

We’ve talked about the Movie, Take Me To The River, documenting the journey of the Music of Memphis celebrating the inter-generational musical influence of Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together……It features William Bell, Snoop Dogg, James Alexander, Terrence Howard, Bobby Blue Bland, Otis Clay, Charlie Musselwhite, Bobby Rush, Mavis Staples and many other musicians…. Well, it’s out on DVD now and you can have it. It’s a very good film, and we have a link to where you can get it on the BluesNews page on BluesTimeInTheCity.com….And we have a link to the trailer if you want to see what it looks like…. Great work by William Bell and this group of Musicians…

The World Famous Huddie William Ledbetter, known as Lead Belly, played his last concert in 1949 at a small acoustically excellent venue called Carnegie Hall in New York…Maybe you’ve heard of it… They paid tribute to Lead Belly a couple of weeks ago at the Lead Belly Festival hosted by Carnegie Hall…. Musicians such as Buddy Guy, Tom Paley, Josh White, Guy Davis and many more were on hand to perform and sing the praises of the former blues man that played a 12 string guitar, piano, violin, harmonica, mandolin and anything else that he got his hands on that made music…He was the dude that originally did the songs “The House of the Rising Sun” and “Midnight Special” that were covered by the likes of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, The Animals, CCR and many others… The reports says the concert was a success and lots of money was raised for the Association to Benefit Children and Project ALS..…

We all heard by now about the passing of Maurice White of the Famed Group Earth Wind and Fire… What you may not have known is that Maurice White, from Memphis Tennessee, worked as a session drummer for Blues Label Chess Records in the early days of his career, working with the likes of Etta James and Muddy Waters…. Huge loss for the music world….Maurice White was one of the most talented musicians ever……Our condolences go out to the family of the great Maurice White…..

This is from the Detroit Free Press…The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin has pledged to help the people of Flint with their water crisis. She’s donating 50 hotel rooms a night, along with money, food and beverage to Flint residents. According to The Queen, “It’s just horrible. The water being green and brown and my god, it just reminds you of Katrina, for one, all over again.” Well Queen, unfortunately, one was made by a higher being, and the other one was made by stupid beings… That is great that the Queen of Soul is doing this for the residents of Flint. There are many other celebrities and common people that are stepping up to the plate for the people of Flint because they really need help there….
