    Wikipedia says: The Hucklebuck (sometimes written The Huckle-Buck) is a jazz and R&B dance tune first popularized by Paul Williams and His Hucklebuckers in 1949. The composition of the tune was credited to Andy Gibson, and lyrics were later added by Roy Alfred. The song became a crossover hit and a dance craze, in many ways foreshadowing the popular success of rock and roll a few years later. It was successfully recorded by many other musicians including Lucky Millinder, Roy Milton, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Lionel Hampton, Louis Armstrong, Chubby Checker, Bo Diddley, Otis Redding, Canned Heat, Coast to Coast and Crystal Swing.

  • THE JAMES COTTON BAND - GOODBYE MY LADY

    4:42

    GOODBYE MY LADY

    ( M.Klingman - D.Smart - T.Rundgren )

    There's a train that's Leavin'
    down the railroad track
    Where that train is goin',
    it won't never be back

    Goodbye, my lady
    So long, my little girl

    There's a ship that's sailing
    way across the sea
    Wher that ship is goin'
    that's where I want to be

    Goodbye my lady I said,
    so long, my little girl

    I don't know where I'm goin'
    I don't know what I'll be
    But I'll think of you, yes indeed

    There's a night that's rollin'
    And it comes to everyone
    It's a long time a comin'
    fore we get to see the sun

    Godbye, my lady
    And I said,so long, my little girl
    Goodbye, my lady
    And I said,so long, my little girl

    Summary:
    James Cotton had some mighty big shoes to fill when he replaced Muddy Water's harmonica player, Little Walter, in 1954. Having learned how to wail from none other than Sonny Boy Williamson himself, Cotton was well prepared and over the next 12 years, he played an integral role in Muddy Water's music as well as the Chicago blues scene in general. By 1966, he was prepared to make it on his own and formed the James Cotton Blues Band, releasing his debut album for Verve the following year. Along with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Cotton's band soon became favorites among the burgeoning blues/rock scene in San Francisco, through memorable performances at the Fillmore and rock venues across America. In the 1970s, he formed the James Cotton Band, featuring the outstanding guitarist, Matt Guitar Murphy. This band became legendary, playing to packed houses around the world. Cotton's blazing harmonica and the masterful instrumental abilities of this band dazzled everyone who listened and the group's relentless high energy, more often than not, had audiences up on their feet, dancing, screaming and sweating right along from the minute Cotton took to the stage.

    On a Winterland bill that also featured Roy Buchanan and the Elvin Bishop Group, this James Cotton Band recording captures the group's triumphant return to San Francisco for the first time in nearly three years. To warm up their chops, they open with a high energy take on Little Walter's Crazy Mixed Up World, which the audience enthusiastically applauds. One can hear Matt Murphy itching to crank it up a notch right before they launch into Rocket 88, a song of praise for the Oldsmobile, originally recorded by Ike Turner's Kings of Rhythm and often cited as being a prototype rock 'n' roll song. The slow burning blues of Born In Missouri follows with a passionate intensity.

    After introducing the band members, Cotton pays tribute to his mentor, Sonny Boy Williamson, while dipping way back into his own repertoire for Don't Start Me Talkin'. The recording concludes with Georgia Swing, written by Jelly Roll Morton, a seminal figure in the development of jazz in the early decades of the last century. This swinging jazz-inflected exercise features a blazing guitar solo from Matt Murphy, who displays impressive dexterity. The rhythm section of Calmese and Johnson are never less than propulsive, proving them to be equally adept at blues, jazz, rock, or virtually anything in between. Although the tape suffers from deterioration, this performance is a testament to the instrumental prowess of these five musicians.
