Music & Songlist


 

These recordings come from three sources. The first is from The Blues Kings studio recording of the album “Keep on Rollin'”. The second is from a Rectifiers gig in Duluth at the Club Saratoga. Those songs were recorded on a very small portable recorder with two small mics set out front (D. Schwalbe – guitar, G. Shuck – drums, J. Taylor – bass, B. McCabe – piano). The third was recorded live from the board at the Minnesota Music Cafe for the Blues Harp Fest 09 (J. Johnson – drums, B. Black – bass, D. Schwalbe – guitar, P. Schmid – guitar, B. McCabe – piano).
