Another Joe West band a gospel group called

Bethleham & Eggs

Unscrambled: The Gospel Truth

Lydia Clark - - - - - - - -- Joe West ------------- Margaret Burke
http://www.bethlehamandeggs.com/

Track List

1 Twelve Gates to the City
2 This Little Light of Mine
3 John the Revelator
4 Nobody's Fault But Mine
5 Standin' In the Need of Prayer
6 Freedom Road
7 King of Kings
8 House of Gold
9 This Train
10 Children Go Where I Send Thee
11 Angel Band

This band, featuring Joe West, Margaret Burke and Lydia Clark, started out a good-time gospel brunch (Sundays at the Cowgirl restaurant) side project for these veteran Santa Fe musicians. It seems only right that they committed some of their material to CD.

And with three strong vocalists and some of Santa Fe’s finest instrumentalists (guitarist Ben Wright and bassist Josh Martin, two thirds of the late lamented Mary & Mars for starters), there’s no way this could have turned into anything less than a blast.

This is a country-tinged, blues-informed album featuring several familiar gospel tunes (“Angel Band,” “John the Revelator”) and some you may have never heard of.
The album starts off with a West original, “Twelve Gates to the City,” featuring some true Westian lyrics you aren’t likely to find on other gospel records. (“I knew a girl she came from France/She took off her clothes and she liked to dance ...”)

Other standouts include Clark’s brassy of “Standin’ in the Need of Prayer,” Burke’s sultry version of Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s “Nobody’s Fault But Mine,” and “House of Gold” an obscure Hank Williams song sung by West.
And there’s a showstopper by guest vocalist Terry Diers.
Diers sounds like a sage here on the old spiritual “Children Go Where I Send Thee.Great stuff!!

At their CD release party at the Cowgirl, Bethlehem & Eggs did a bunch of songs that aren’t on this album, including covers of Lucinda Williams’ “Get Right With God” and Bob Dylan’s “Slow Train Coming.
I’m already looking forward to Bethleham’s next album.

Some voodoo blues

The Devil & Abbe May - Hoodoo You Do

Track List
1.Hoodoo You do
2.Call Me Back or I'll Unleash Hells Hounds
3.Oh Sweet Jaysus!
4.You Gonna Get It
5.A Wail of Sirens
6.My Heart It Struck Sorrow
7.I've Been Thirsty, I Haven't Found Any Yet
8.The Soul of a Man
9.Howard Moon
10.Wang Dang Doodle
11.The Ballad of Ignatius Elliott Archer
12.Goodnight Irene

Abbe May and company certainly sound like they’re having a darned good hoedown.
For a project May has described as a home for her slower stuff, it opens with some fairly rocking (not to mention catchy) numbers, despite the acoustic setup.

The accompanying musicians, feature members of The Kill Devil Hills, The Lazy Railway, and The Rockin’ Pneumonia.

Saffire The Uppity Blues Women
**Havin the Last Word**
The farewell album, just released
great song range 16 tracks, from the desperately
defiant Bald Headed blues re Gaye's
cancer to the usual bawdy romps and
on Blue Lullaby you'd think it was a
Linda Ronstad CD


Heading out for the East Coast / Lord knows I've paid some dues gettin' through, / Tangled up in blues.

Well, Ive got a stack of new stuff but Guy Davis' new release "Sweetheart Like You" is grabbing my emotions

Its new on Red House records through Only Blues Music

Anybody who saw Guy last year would be all over this. One cover each from Dylan, Son House, Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Big Joe Williams and Leadbelly, 8 beautifully written and played originals with Guy's honey on gravel voice way out front

Check it out!!

Caught solo Abbe supporting Bob Log in Newcastle Sat nite and was most impressed...reminded me of Mia Dyson a few years ago. I think Abbe will also 'lift' with experience. She came across 'raw' but was nonetheless enjoyable. Bob, as ever, is a great entertainer and will be alot of fun at BF.

Was most unimpressed with punter - seeing me enjoy her cover "Jesus gonna be here" - say "so you are an Ash Grunwald fan". Betcha he'd choose Ash over Tom should he ever play at BF. ("Tom who? Naaah, looks like some sort of Seasick Steve rip off...lets get front and centre for Ash, Man!!)



Buddy Guy is without doubt the best guitar player alive.......the way he plays is beyond anyone. Amen

I was very interested to see that Ed has replaced Mick Harvey in the Bad Seeds. Between you an me, I'd rate Ed as twice the musician that Nick Cave is...but then i'm just an iconoclast.

Hi pete.
I was given the dvd by a mate after his return from Melbourne to see Neil Young.
I was expecting only a t shirt but he added the dvd (after we were chatting about the fact we both like Ed Kuepper) plus some super sized rolling papers-not sure what he expects me to do with them as i only smoke tobacco in taylor made form but im sure i'll find a use for them.
I'd rate Ed as twice the musician of Nick Cave or Tom waits but that's just my personal view.
Let the howls of derision begin.

I think the strength of the Bad Seeds lies in Nick Cave picking a helluva bunch of musicians around him. But with the possible exception of Warren Ellis, I don't think any of them could lead the charge from the front of the band with as much fire, charisma and raw testosterone as Nick Cave. So adding someone like Ed to the band just continues a great tradition for a great band. And probably means that the hole left by Blixa Bargeld's departure 5 years ago is better filled (with much respect to Mick Harvey).

Just listening to a great band from Melbourne called "Mammal" with there first studio album The Majority. Wicked sound but probably too heavy for most blues lovers. Its like a cross between Rage against the Machine and The Tea party with an aussie twist. Check it out on there Myspace site. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=73868067
