  • Big Walter Price and His ThunderBirds - Calling Margie

    2:40

    Walter Price Price was already in his early forties when he made his first records, for Bob Tanner's TNT label in San Antonio. Three TNT singles were released in 1955, the first of which, Calling Margie, sold quite well locally. They were credited to Big Walter and his Thunderbirds. Soon Price would call himself Big Walter the Thunderbird. Later in 1955, Walter moved to Houston and joined his friend Clarence Gatemouth Brown at Don Robey's Peacock label. Of the five Peacock singles that were issued in 1956-57, the first two are the best known and also the strongest sellers. Shirley Jean (Peacock 1661) sounds like an early swamp pop song and was later recorded by several real swamp pop artists from Louisiana. On Pack Fair And Square (clearly inspired by Flip Flop And Fly), Price was backed by a few members of Little Richard's band, the Upsetters (Grady Gaines, Clifford Burks, Nat Douglas). The song was revived in the 1970s by the J. Geils Band.

  • Joe Medwick with The Texas Upsetters

    3:58

    A native Houstonian and vocalist, Joe Medwick Veasey is best remembered as a songwriter whos most famous tune, Farther On Up the Road, has been performed by Eric Clapton, James Brown, T-Bone Walker, Jimmie Smith, Robin Trower, Gary Moore, Lonnie Mack ,Freddie King and more. Medwick began singing Gospel with the Chosen Gospel Singers in the late 1940's. In the 1950's he began recording for and selling songs to Don Robey at Duke-Peacock Records. Although their records are incomplete, it seems certain that Medwick wrote Further On Up The Road, I Pity The Fool, Cry Cry Cry and Call On Me for Bobby Blue Bland and Driving Wheel for Junior Parker before an disagreement led to a split with Robey. Medwick's classic recordings from this period include Second Time Around , I Cried and You Ain't Treating Her Right, but Medwick's recordings for Duke were hampered by the fact that Bland usually had first pick of all songs, including those written by Medwick himself. Throughout the 1960's Joe Medwick wrote for a variety of Houston based labels including Huey Meaux's Crazy Cajun, recording blues and soul sides such as You Made Me Love You , Nearer To You , Have Fun Baby and This Is Why The End Must Begin . Medwick's 1985 single She Fooled Me This Time / If I Don't Get Involved led to interest from Black Top Records who paired Medwick with Grady Gaines & the Texas Upsetters , This was recorded during the time of the Benson & Hedges Blues Fest. in Dallas Texas 6-19-1990 near the West End.Joe passed away 4-1992.

    4:10

    Realizo casi de todo en el blues tras bambalinas,fue escritora,productora y hasta manager de su querido padre,un bluesman que en los ochenta hizo una obra maestra llamada Gainelining.
    Hoy en día,se da el gran gusto en hacer su debut,con la música que mas apreciaba escuchar mientras Roy Gaines dirigía su club por las noches.Se nota que tomo un largo tiempo vigorizarse adecuadamente para dar este paso fundamental.
    Convencida de sus cualidades,no dudo en absoluto buscar un estilo inherente que se distinga de sus numen y no caiga en la copia corriente.Para tal proyecto,se arropo de correctos músicos como el guitarrista Fred Clark y Del Atkin en bajo,mas la venerable participación del Rey del Honkin' Tenor Sax,su majestad Big Jay McNeely ni mas ni menos.Tambien es de la partida y en representación de la parentela, Grady Gaines Jr en bronces,completando el staff Glen Doll se encarga de las armónicas y Rudy Copeland con Chad Wright hacen eficientes labores en Hammond y tambores correspondientes.
    Carolyn Gaines nos concede un suculento manjar de buen blues,después del sabor amargo del año pasado con exiguo material femenino y que tanto lamentamos cuando realizamos la lista anual.
    Solo nos queda desear,un excelente comienzo de carrera a esta mujer que tuvo la intrepidez de acometer una comprometida prueba,pero con el noviciado instruido saltara la vara en mas de una oportunidad como bien podemos apreciar en este cd con la contundente Stone Out Your Raggly Mind de Jimmy Reed.

  • Roy Gaines - Once I Was A Gambler

    9:40

    Roy Gaines was born August 12, 1937 in Waskom, Texas. His family moved to Houston when he was six. He is the brother of sax player Grady Gaines At an early age Roy Gaines first began playing piano in the style of Nat King Cole. He became friendly with other local musicians such as Clarence Hollimon and Johnny Copeland. In his teens he switched to the guitar and began playing clubs throughout the Houston area. He met his hero T-Bone Walker in 1951, and even backed T-Bone on stage when he was fourteen. He then moved to Los Angeles and joined Roy Milton's band. But by the time he was sixteen he moved to Houston and made his solo debut with an obscure release on Chart Records out of Miami. But when he came to the attention of Bill Harvey, leader of Duke and Peacock Record's house band things started to happen. With that band Gaines was featured on various releases by Big Mama Thorton, Jr. Parker (Driving Me Mad) and Bobby Blue Bland (It's My Life Baby & Woke Up Screaming) in 1955.

    Following this gig Roy began working with Chuck Willis in New York City and recorded with Willis for Atlantic Records. During this time he signed, under his own name, with RCA Victor's Groove subsidiary label. Gaines released two albums in 1956. In 1957 it was Deluxe Records. Back to RCA in 1958. And the sixties saw only two releases on the small Del-Fi and Uni labels. Chuck Willis died in 1958 and Roy continued his session work. Other early sessions included Essential Jimmy Rushing in 1954. And 1957's Blues Wail: Coleman Hawkins Plays the Blues. He also worked with the Jazz Crusaders (later known simply as the Crusaders) appearing on two LPs in 1961. In 1966 Gaines returned to Los Angeles and joined the Ray Charles big band. While with the band he wrote No Use Cryin' for Ray's hit album Crying Time.

    By the seventies Gaines was again in demand, making many public appearances either solo or with the Crusaders (1978). He continued as session musician working with artists like Aretha Franklin, Della Reese, the Supremes. He was featured on Stevie Wonder's landmark album album My Cherie Amour, Milt Buckner's Green Onions (1975) and Albert King's Albert (1976). He also continued to work with T-Bone Walker until Walker's death in 1975. Roy was part of Harry Belafonte's Las Vegas show in 1976. He toured Central and South America with the Supremes in 1976, and the U.S. with Diana Ross in 1977. When Gaines returned to L.A. he was once more in constant demand. This included movie and television work with Quincy Jones. In 1982 he released the classic Gainelining. Roy wrote Don't Make Me No Never Mind for the movie The Color Purple (1985), played on the session, and had a cameo role in the film itself but it wasn't until 1996 that he released another solo album, which was the independent Lucile Works For Me. He followed this with a disc on JSP, a T-Bone Walker tribute album for Groove Note, one for Severn.

  • Little Richard - Long Tall Sally - In HQ Audio )))

    2:08

    Richard Wayne Penniman (born December 5, 1932), known as Little Richard, is an American recording artist, singer-songwriter and actor.

    Little Richard's next hit single, Long Tall Sally (1956), became his first to reach No. 1 on the R&B chart and the first to reach the top ten of the pop charts in both America and Britain. The single sold over a million copies. Following his success, Little Richard built up his backup band, The Upsetters, with the addition of saxophonists Clifford Gene Burks and leader Grady Gaines, bassist Olsie Baysee Robinson and guitarist Nathaniel Buster Douglas. Little Richard began performing on package tours across the United States, often appearing last, where he would steal the show. Art Rupe described the differences between Little Richard and a similar hitmaker of the early rock and roll period by stating that, while the similarities between Little Richard and Fats Domino for recording purposes were close, Little Richard would sometimes stand up at the piano while he was recording and that onstage, where Domino was plodding, very slow, Little Richard was very dynamic, completely uninhibited, unpredictable, wild. So the band took on the ambience of the vocalist.

    An influential figure in popular music and culture for seven decades, Little Richard's most celebrated work dates from the mid-1950s, when his dynamic music and charismatic showmanship laid the foundation for rock and roll. His music also played a key role in the formation of other popular music genres, including soul and funk. Little Richard influenced numerous singers and musicians across musical genres from rock to hip hop; his music helped shape rhythm and blues for generations to come, and his performances and headline-making thrust his career right into the mix of American popular music.
