Bernard Allison was born in Chicago, Illinois, United States. His father, Luther Allison, was a Chicago blues musician. Allison moved back and forth between Illinois and Florida, but remained close to his father's music whether with him or not, listening to his father's albums when they were apart. He accompanied his father to blues festivals in the early 1970s. There he was introduced to Muddy Waters, Hound Dog Taylor and Albert King, amongst others.Allison taught himself to play in Florida while his father was touring internationally and displayed his early skills to his father when he was 12. His father brought him a Stratocaster guitar but required him to remain in school, although he did allow his son to join him on stage at the age of 18 at the 1983 Chicago Blues Festival. A week after his graduation from high school, he was invited to join Koko Taylor's touring band. During that time, he furthered his skills under the tutelage of Johnny Winter, whom he had met when younger, and Stevie Ray Vaughan whom he met in the first year of his career.

John Lee Hooker was an American blues singer, songwriter, and guitarist. The son of a sharecropper, he rose to prominence performing an electric guitar-style adaptation of Delta blues. Hooker often incorporated other elements, including talking blues and early North Mississippi Hill country blues. He developed his own driving-rhythm boogie style, distinct from the 1930s–1940s piano-derived boogie-woogie. Hooker was ranked 35 in Rolling Stones 2015 list of 100 greatest guitarists.

Singular "American Swamp Music" stylists The Black Tongued Bells perpetrate an accomplished, yet subtly hazardous, brand of Spiritual Mayhem. Working a sound imbued with Deep Blues menace, soul-stirring Gospel and hopped-up Rock & Roll desperation, The Bells' blend of musical vernacular perversion, offbeat expression and intoxicating atmospherics infects with a flash-bang fever from which there is no recovery.

Eclecto Groove Records #EGRCD512 | Unofficial Release
Texas Blues / Blues Rock / Southern Rock

Since hooking up with the Eclecto Groove label in 2008, roots/blues rocking guitarist Mike Zito has been honing his craft, shifting his focus from a hotshot blues six-stringer to a literate songwriter and soulful singer who just happens to be a badass guitarist. On his third release for the imprint, he brings along the talented Anders Osborne (who appeared on his previous disc) as producer/second guitarist/backing vocalist, and together they craft a tough but introspective Southern rock set with strong roots in the swampy sounds that have clearly inspired Zito. Instead of entertaining multiple guests as on his last outing, Zito pares his band to a backing trio featuring Osborne, drummer Brady Blade, and bassist Carl Dufrene, the latter who, like Osborne, has worked with the similarly styled Tab Benoit.

The ideal gift for a music lover is for sure a nice compilation. Rock & Folk released this year a compilation of the best rock songs of the 50s and 60s. A person who is a fan of rock, it is very easily. A person who still listens to CDs in his car is easy to find too. A person who prefers to have a beautiful object rather than an iTunes prepaid card, there is a shovel.
Here is a gift that can please a person who mixes these three aspects. Indeed, Rock & Folk releases its traditional compilation of end of year and looks this year on the origins of rock.

Excellent Live disc by this great blues/rock band from Holland featuring axeslinger Sjors Nederlof on guitar and the soul-powered vocal mojo of Phil Bee. King Mo rock the blues on the "Live In Holland" disc with a strong Stevie Ray Vaughan @ Texas blues vibe. Includes several extended Hendrix jams complete with a superb encore version of "All Along the Watchtower" featuring Special Guest Guitar Legend Jan Akkerman.

This was the last of the six albums John Mayall originally made for Blue Thumb/ABC Records between 1975 and 1978, about which he has said, "ABC released six of my albums as a tax write-off. A week after they were released you couldn't find them in any store." It's a live album on which Mayall fronts a quartet consisting of guitarist James Quill Smith (who sings lead on several songs), bassist Steve Thompson, and drummer Soko Richardson. The approach is rock-oriented, and the set list includes such Bluesbreakers favorites as Mose Allison's "Parchman Farm," and Freddie King's "Hideaway" (taken at a frantic tempo), along with the usual complement of generic Mayall originals, among them, a remake of "The Bear," from Blues From Laurel Canyon.

Niafunke, a city in Mali along the Niger River near Timbuktu is where Sankare continues to live with his family. He, Bocoum, and Cisse were contemporary collaborators with Ali Farka Toure whose home was also there; they can be heard on many of Farka's albums. Sankare's spirit engages everyone he meets. He has absorbed musical influences from around the world which he brings to these ten tracks.

Smokin' Joe Kubek's third Rounder album juggles blues-rock originals with faithful, exuberant covers of Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters and Little Walter Jacobs, among others. Kubek is a good, sometimes captivating guitarist and entertaining singer, if not the greatest pure vocalist, and the band rips through the 11 cuts in a relaxed, yet passionate fashion. But it's hard for any longtime blues fan to get excited over hearing another version of "Little Red Rooster" or "Mean Old World"; it's impossible to reinvent Delta, urban, Texas or West Coast blues. The solution is probably to make the best music you can and hope you hook those willing to listen to contemporary blues rather than spurn it for the originals.

Wily Bo Walker teams up with guitar maestro E D Brayshaw again to work on a new album 'Stone Cold Beautiful' for release in 2015. Wily Bo weaves an album of cinematic storylines and EDB lays down magnificent and timeless guitar solos. Some fine guest musicians make appearances on the album tracks including the beautiful backing vocals of Kareña K. “Just do yourself a favour, go out and get it, I'll be playing tracks from it forever I think… it's one of those album that just grabs you. E. D. Brayshaw's guitar is phenomenal, Wily Bo Walker's vocals are to die for and the musicianship on it is astonishing. Just a fantastic album!" ~ Richard Dunning, Blues on the Radio.

Not a bad compilation - 13 songs cut by Bull City Red over a four-year stretch, which include gospel-tinged songs as well as country blues in the Blind Boy Fuller mode. The sound is reasonably good throughout, given the rarity of some of the records, and the analog-to-digital transfer fairly clean given the age of the source material - Red's guitar comes through in startling clarity, and surface noise is generally held in check, or at least to manageable levels. Among the highlights here is Red's version of "I Saw the Light," and which, in another form, entered the repertory of Hank Williams, among others…
