380 – Dave Fields – All In

by A1 Mark on August 28, 2014


I’m very happy to do another interview with Dave Fields. In 2012 I named his last CD Detonation as best Blues Rock CD of that year.  His new CD All In has a lot of great guitar playing with well-crafted songs. Some of the more impressive songs you’ll hear in this show are “Not Gonna Let You Get Away”, “Let’s Go Downtown” and “Voodoo Eyes”. This is a CD you’re really going to love so push play and let the fun begin.

This weeks interview is with Selwyn (Sell-Win) Birchwood who is a new member of Alligator Records.  His new CD is upbeat with a lot of great guitar playing.  I’ve woken up several times with his song “She Loves Me Not” playing in my head. Despite it’s title it’s a very beautiful song to start your day off.  The song everyone will love is the slow blues “Brown Paper Bag” It’s a nine-minute song that’s worth every second of it.  If Selwyn keeps putting out CD’s like this we will be hearing a lot more from him in the future.

This weeks interview is with the new Delmark recording artists Giles Corey.  Giles is a young man but has been on the Chicago Blues scene for over 20 years. He’s been in the bands of Billy Branch and Otis Rush and the band Mississippi Heat among others. The CD is grounded in Chicago Blues but also has elements of Rock and R&B. It’s a cool CD that keeps growing on you.
