98 out of 100 Patrick. Unless of course, U2 started paying people to attend. Perhaps then, something could be negotiated, but otherwise, I'd have no trouble steering clear.

Hi Scott,thanks for your support for the Duke/non support for U2.

Being Irish I should be supportive of U2,and because of that I did buy their first Album "Boy" when it came out in 1980,which still sits in my vinyl cupboard.
I haven't played it for 25 years.

Apart from that album I am not familiar with any of their material.
I'm neither pro nor con them,just not interested.
When I read that there are people in sleeping bags lining up to buy tickets to a U2 gig,I know it is a "Must To Avoid."

Presently in the CD player is another Mogo purchase,the sixth Roomful of Blues recording "Dressed Up To get Messed Up'' released on Rounder in 1984.
It's got some great RnB,Soul,Swing and Jump.

Seven out of the ten tracks are exquisitely penned by Vocalist/Tenor Sax Player Greg Piccolo.

"Yes Indeed" with its RnB New Orleans feel, Alibi's Boogie with Duke Robillard's co founder Al Copley on piano,and "The Last Time[Not to be confused with the Stones track].,featuring Kim Wilson on vocals,being highlights for me.

And then there's "Oh Oh",a 2.48 uptempo number with three vocalists,and Ronnie Earl doing an awesome guitar solo accompanied by Preston Hubbard's very identifiable Double Bass.
This track has to be repeated a number of times for true appreciation.

I am curious as to the identity of the"Oh Oh" writer, one "E Borage",who I find from the internet is Edwin Borage aka Eddie Bo,born 1930 in New Orleans,a piano player who is clearly an underrated genius.

I am very confident that "Repete" will be able to provide some further commentary on this great unknown.

Hehehehe...thanks patrick for the opportunity for a mild rant! Actually, it's Edwin Bocage.

I had the absolute privilege to see Eddie Bo perform with the Bamboos at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne not too long ago. A sold out gig, they were hanging from the rafters...desperate punters outside were offering $100 for a ticket to get in! To this day, it is criminal (and embarrasing) that an artist of his stature could only command one gig in Australia - promoters in this country should hang their heads in shame (and regret a stupid decision as they would've made a killing). But thanks to Mohair Slim for bringing him to Melbourne! The young'uns, of course, were right on the money, and I was hopelessly outnumbered by punters half my age who knew exactly what they were turning up for and why. And their respect for this unknown great was heartwarming. Along with Art Neville, Eddie Bo is one of the most profound influences on funk still alive. From the piano playing school of Tuts Washington and the great Professor Longhair, he had a lot of hits in the 50's - true New Orleans r 'n b. But there was an edge to Eddie's playing, and a beat, that was instantly picked up by modern hip hop artists who have sampled his music to the nth degree. Well into his late 70's, Eddie can still cut it live, and an Eddie Bo show is still all about shakin' your arse and diggin' the groove.

His club was wiped out during Katrina. One of the most moving bits of video I have seen was when an artist of no less a stature than Marcia Ball presented Eddie with a new keyboard to replace his destroyed pianos and keyboards - his eyes lit up with joy. It was the same keyboard he played during that memorable gig at the Corner Hotel.

If there is any way to bring this great artist to bluesfest, then I for one would wholeheartedly support his appearance!!

Well, going solely off the posts by Patrick and Pete, I for one hope that these posts have been noticed by Bluesfest management and that they can make it happen :-)

Well thank you mr beard, flattery will get you everywhere.
I first heard Marianne Faithfull around 1980 haveing a listen to Broken English .A mate of mine liked her music & she would play it all the time till i got a taste for it myself.
Back then my taste in music was rather narrow but over the years i've developed a somewhat more ecclectic taste in music.
As for the song Why D'Ya Do It, with lyrics like those ...how could one resist a listen?
& thanks for the clip.

woops. Tried to tidy up post a bit due to being less innebriated.
Today though I listened to The Jungle Bros (best of) and they rock. St Germain is another awesome recent one (album Tourist). Saw "so flute" on you tube which is plain cool.
I like Xavier Rudds new album A Darker Shade Of Blue. Saw the other night and had a blast.

Super Chikan "Sum' Mo' Chikan"

What's that like? I'm still annoyed I missed him in the US due to a bus mix-up. We can always do with someone from Mississippi at BF and if we can't get Bobby Rush or Chikan's uncle Big Jack Johnson, maybe some Chikan would go down well.
