THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JUNE 29-30, 2019

From AmericanBluesScene.com, Shemekia Copeland is doing something really cool.  June 17th, she began hosting her own Blues Radio Program on B.B. King’s Bluesville Channel.  It airs Monday through Friday from 9 am until 3 pm.  The show features great music with guests and commentary.  This is not the first go around for Shemekia on SirusXM….She hosted a show for them back in 2006.  Shemekia is riding high on her latest BCD, America’s Child which has gotten great reviews.  I don’t have it yet.  Copeland says “she is thrilled and honored to be back with her friends at SiriusXM.  She is the daughter of the late great Johnny Copeland, and she’s doing a great job of carrying that torch for the Blues.

If you’re a John Lee Hooker fan, then you’ll love this.  August 2nd, Craft Recording will release, or should I say reissue “The Country Blues of John Lee Hooker.  According to the article, this is very raw John Lee Hooker, playing acoustic guitar.  It’s filled with his famous moans, boogies and field holler.  Some of the titles on the album are Tupelo Blues, I’m Prison Bound, Water Boy, Bundle Up and Go, How Long Blues, Black Snake and many more.  These recordings are said to be the pure John Lee closest to his roots from down in Clarksdale Mississippi where he was born.   Again, the release date is August 2nd….. John Lee made the transition on June 21, 2001 at the age of 83…..If you want to know more about this release, we have a link to the John Lee Hooker web site on the BluesNews Page at bluestimeinthecity.com……

We reported last weekend that Bishop Bullwinkle passed away on Father’s Day, and his services was last weekend.  The Bishop was a comedian that became a viral hit on you tube. He was probably the Southern Soul Star that got more hits than anyone else, especially with his Hell To the Naw Naw Naw… But did you know this.  His Hell to the Naw Naw Naw came in many forms.  For example, there the Trump Hell to the Naw Naw Naw…There’s the Bicycle Hell To the Naw Naw Naw….There’s the pulpit Hell to the Naw Naw Naw….There’s the Straight Fire Hell to the Naw Naw Naw….Then there’s the Granny Dances to Hell To The Naw Naw Naw….Now that one is Funny.  The Bishop had other funny videos, but Hell to the Naw Naw Naw was by far this most popular, and most viewed.  They are really Funny…Our condolences again go out to the family of Bishop Bullwinkle.
