Hello all. This is my first attempt to post to the list rather than an
individual, so please correct me if I do it wrong.
For those in the Boston area: Mai Cramer, host of "Blues After Hours" on
WGBH FM 89.7 (I think that's the right number) will have Kim Fields in
the studio next Saturday, October 15. Her show (as I'm sure all locals
know) goes from 10-1 a.m.
Also, gotta tell you--I saw Bluestime at The Underground in Chelmsford
(about a mile from my apartment) several months ago. The club is, shall
we say, a "dog"--usually a Thrash venue. But the band must've been there
for a tune-up before the current tour? Anyway, they were fantastic!
Magic Dick was fine on the harp, of course, and sang well. But the thing
that impressed me was the groove the whole band maintained. I've never
heard a better drummer; the bass player used a lot of accoustic bass; the
rhythm player was superb (stayed on rhythm instead of stealing the
lead); and J. Geils played when he was supposed to--no ego trip here. I
couldn't believe my fortune at catching these guys that night--it was
like a Christmas gift!
So, if you get a chance, see them. They're a solid unit, and you won't
be able to sit still listening to them.
BTW, the reason that the singer from the J. Geils Band isn't with them
(sorry, I forget his name) I'm told is that he and J. are on the outs. I
didn't miss him anyway.
