"Blue Monday Blues," #8 (part 1 of 2), undated (continued)
Time Content
Start Pete Welding (PW) makes an opening remark and advertises the Big John's club in Old Town Chicago where featured bands perform live on the stage. PW: This evening we will focus on the recorded music of Elmore James and his cousin Homesick James Williamson.
00:03:56 "Dust My Broom" by Elmore James; Sonny Boy Williamson II on harmonica.
00:06:42 PW: In "Sunnyland," Elmore James's electric guitar is more of a Chicago style, a more modern approach. The riff pattern and very heavy, explicit rhythm are much more in keeping with the Chicago modern styles of blues that became quite prevalent in the middle 50s.
00:08:04 "Sunnyland" by Elmore James
00:11:20 PW: In "Blues Before Sunrise," the guitar accompaniment pattern on this number is almost exclusively on Robert Johnson.
00:12:04 "Blues Before Sunrise" by Elmore James
00:14:45 PW: Now another number by Elmore James, in the more modern style of the Chicago blues. The guitar playing is much more in line with the jazz approaches.
00:15:20 "I Was A Fool" by Elmore James
00:18:05 PW: Tonight's final selection is Elmore's remake of Robert Johnson's "Standing At The Crossroads." Several horns have been added to the rhythm section. The band picks up the phrases following Elmore's guitar, echoing in a call and response pattern. This format becomes the trademarks of Elmore's blues in the 50s.
00:18:58 "Standing At The Crossroads"
00:21:45 PW: Let's hear Robert Johnson's original "Crossroad Blues" recorded in November 1936. We will see how much Elmore got from it, and how much he parted from it.
00:22:07 "Cross Road Blues" by Robert Johnson
00:24:35 PW: Homesick James Williamson was also a man who was influenced by Robert Johnson and his powerful music. We hear a recording titled "Homesick" made by Homesick James in 1952.
00:25:42 "Homesick" by Homesick James Williamson
00:28:28 PW makes a closing remark for the program.

Start Pete Welding (PW) makes an opening remark and advertises the Big John's club in Old Town Chicago where featured bands perform live on the stage. Tonight's program continues the discussion of the modern blues style with selections by Chester Arthur Burnett, better known by his stage name Howlin' Wolf. This selection, "Crying At Daylight," is notable as much for his powerful singing as it is for his interesting harmonica playing.
00:04:20 "Crying At Daylight" by Howlin' Wolf
00:08:10 PW: This next number is influenced more by jazz guitar. It is much more in line with the kind of blues that were being recorded during the mid-40s and right after the war years.
00:08:44 "Worried About My Baby"
00:11:40 PW: In early 1950 Howlin' Wolf left Memphis and moved to Chicago. Here is a segment of his recording before the move.
00:12:24 "House Rockin' Boogie" by Howlin' Wolf, with comments by Howlin' Wolf
00:14:26 PW: Before moving to Chicago in 1952, Howlin' Wolf recorded a few numbers in Memphis. Here is one example.
00:14:48 "Moanin' at Midnight" by Howlin' Wolf
00:17:40 PW: Wolf continues to record a number of traditional tunes, one of most interesting is "Forty Four," recorded after he moved to Chicago.
00:18:58 "Forty Four" by Howlin' Wolf
00:21:45 PW: Howlin' Wolf's singing of "Forty Four" was very similar to Charley Patton, the great Delta Mississippi blues man. The phrasing is remarkably alike. The next number is recorded in Howlin' Wolf's Chicago era.
00:22:17 "Evil (Is Going On)" by Howlin' Wolf
00:25:08 PW: Now we hear another example of Howlin' Wolf's use of traditional Mississippi materials and modern blues context. "Spoonful" was originally recorded by Charley Patton.
00:25:22 "Spoonful" by Howlin' Wolf
00:28:07 PW: "Spoonful" by Howlin' Wolf was recorded in 1960. Since that time Wolf's music has gone to a decline as he is concentrated on the performance of rather cheap material that have been manufactured for him by professional blues writers. However Howlin' Wolf was still one of the most powerful and strongest of all Chicago blues man.
00:29:02 "Three Hundred Pounds of Joy" by Howlin' Wolf
00:32:05 PW makes a closing remark for the program.

Start Pete Welding (PW) makes an opening remark and advertises the Big John's club in Old Town Chicago where featured bands perform live on the stage. Tonight's program will be about a few numbers about 78's music from PW's collection. Junior Wells achieved a great deal of success, commercially and artistically, after leaving the Muddy Water's band.
00:02:21 "'Bout The Break Of Day" by Junior Wells
00:04:55 PW: We will hear artists who achieved great fame before the pre-war years, but who happened to record after World War II. Their style changed in order to accommodate the prevalent Chicago sound. The first selection is music by Walter Davis, who is an expressive singer and pianist.
00:06:35 "So Long Baby" by Walter Davis
00:09:10 PW: Another artist who tried to make the switch from the pre-war style to the modern post-war style was Big Bill Broonzy. He was a prolific recording artist, and was identified as the "Chicago sound" before World War II.
00:09:50 "Southbound Train" by Big Bill Broonzy
00:12:45 PW: Now, another artist who scored success in the pre-war years, Hudson Whittaker (Tampa Red), a very fine singer and guitarist. He also recorded a few successful numbers in the post-war years.
00:13:40 "But I Forgive You" by Tampa Red, with vocalist and pianist Johnny Jones
00:16:30 PW: The final pre-war artist we hear with post-war transformation is Roosevelt Sykes from Louisiana. He is artistically the most successful of the four artists we hear this evening.
00:17:10 "Walking the Boogie" by Roosevelt Sykes
00:19:35 PW: Now we will hear one of the best zydeco players, Clifton Chenier, a singer and accordionist. Zydeco is a combination of French music and Negro blues, and it's associated with the Gulf coast region around Louisiana and Texas.
00:20:20 "Where Can My Baby Be" by Clifton Chenier
00:23:00 "The Big Wheel" by Clifton Chenier
00:25:45 PW: Andrew "Smokey" Hogg is one of the finest of the Texas bluesman.
00:26:05 "Gone Gone Gone" by Andrew "Smokey" Hogg
00:28:25 PW makes a closing remark for the program.
