    Red's Dream: Louisiana Red [1962]

    It was a dream, dream I had last night
    I dreamed I went to the UN
    And set the whole nation right

    I dreamed of callin' old Castro
    To the morning flo'
    Looked him right in the eye and said, Boy,
    You got to go!
    I'm tired of your foolishness
    And if you don't behave,
    I'm goin' grab you by your beard,
    Give you a Georgia shave!

    It was a dream, a dream I had last night
    I dreamed I went to the UN
    And set the whole nation right

    Then I told old Khrushchev
    Sittin' there looking bad,
    Get that junk outta Cuba
    'Fore you make me mad.
    Dig up them missile bases
    Take them planes and all
    Or I'll grab me a bat
    With your head for the ball!

    It was a dream, dream I had last night
    I dreamed I went to the UN
    And set the whole nation right

    Then into Washington they call me
    An' I went
    Hadda be the guest
    Of the President
    He said, Red, I'm glad to see you,
    So glad you come down here
    To help me run the Russians
    From the western hemisphere!

    I said, You can run the country
    I'm goin' to run the Senate
    Oughtta make a few changes
    With a few soul brothers in it.
    Ray Charles and Lightnin' Hopkins
    And a guy like Jimmy Reed
    Bo Diddley and Big Mabel
    Be all I need!

    It was a dream, a dream I had last night
    I dreamed I went to the UN
    And set the whole nation right

Red, who passed away in Germany 0n 2/25/12, was around during the birth of electric blues and has shared the stage and/or recorded with all the greats. His winning of the WC Handy (now called BMA) award for Best Traditional Blues Artist back in 1983 is a testament to his contributions to the blues.

  • LOUISIANA RED ~ Bring It On Home To Me

    3:35

    The one and only ! ! ! Written by Sam Cooke


    Louisiana Red. March 23rd, 1932- to February 25, 2012.
    Here's part of Bob Corritore's tribute:
    It is with a heavy heart that we report the passing of one of the greatest and most beloved traditional blues artists. Louisiana Red died this afternoon at a hospital in Germany (Note Europe is 9 hours ahead) after a few days in a coma brought on by thyroid imbalance. He was 79. Louisiana Red was a powerful downhome blues artist who could channel his teachers (among them Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Robert Nighthawk, Lightnin' Hopkins and John Lee Hooker) into his own heartfelt musical conversation, delivered with such moving passion and honesty that it would leave his audiences indelibly touched. He was fine singer with a distinctive voice, and an amazing guitarist who could play all of the traditional blues styles and excelled as one of the world's greatest slide guitarists. He could create moods and textures, both musically and spiritually, and had the ability of falling so deep into his own songs that he would go to tears, making his audience cry with him. That was the gift of this great artist.

    Another blues great gone... for the complete tribute, see link below.

    From the album Louisiana Red, Live in Montreux (2000).
    Recorded live in Switzerland in 1975, here's Louisiana Red performing solo to a wildly appreciative audience. Armed with nothing more than his slide guitar and a voice that consumes most of the space in the mix, Red lays down a set of originals and old standards like Sam Cooke's Bring It on Home to Me with equal flair. This is a very inspired performance and one of Red's best albums to date. Highly recommended.

    Composed by Iverson Minter

    There's a lot of information about Louisiana Red on the web, and he's still living as of this writing. He made his earliest recordings in 1952 in Chicago for Checker under the name of Rocky Fuller. At the time Checker only issued two of ten recordings on 78. The rest have popped up decades later on Chess/Checker LP & CD compilations from Japan and The United States (and a couple are featured on this source compilation). Minter moved on in '53 to Detroit to record for Joe Von Battle under the name of Playboy Fuller. Von Battle leased his sides to a small West Hollywood, CA. label by the name of Fuller that wasn't in any way related to Minter. What came out of that was they pressed several copies for Minter to sell out of the trunk of his car. He made two more recordings in '53 as Rockin' Red teamed with John Lee Hooker, but they were never commercially issued until they later wound up on albums devoted to Hooker. His recording career stalled until 1960 when he went to New York City to record for Atlas and many other labels in the 1960's. From that point on, he established himself as a prolific recording and live performer, his career has spanned several decades now.
