Featured on UbuntuFM World Radio Band of Gypsys is a live album and Jimi's first without the Experience. Recorded at Fillmore East NYC - dec 31 - jan 2, 1970 with a new line-up of musiciians.

#BoG is regarded by some fans and critics as Hendrix's least important album. This may be a matter of personal taste and preference. An album may not appeal to a certain segment of an artist's following, it still may leave it's mark on music history. Such is the case with #BoG

The recording is clearly more rhythm driven and less Blues oriented. Working with different musicians - Billy Cox on

British Blues Rock at its bestLONG PLAYER was the second album by the British rock group Faces with Rod Stewart, Ronnie Lane and Ronnie Wood amongst its members. On a good day, Faces could wrestle the title of greatest rock & roll band away from the Rolling Stones.

LONG PLAYER was the second album by the British rock group Faces. Among the highlights are a live cover version of Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed", the wistful "Richmond" and "Sweet Lady Mary", the rave-up "Had Me a Real Good Time" and the opening "Bad 'n' Ruin". "Maybe I'm Amazed" and "I Feel So Good" were recorded live at the Fillmore East, New York on October 11 1970.

Eric Bibb | "Migration Blues"

UbuntuFM | Eric Bibb | Migration Blues (2017)

#Releases #Blues Eric Bibb

Whether you’re looking at a former sharecropper, hitchhiking from Clarksdale to Chicago in 1923, or an orphan from Aleppo, in a boat full of refugees in 2016 – it’s migration blues...On "Migration Blues" Eric Bibb draws a parallel between the former African American sharecroppers leaving the segregation and misery of the South for the industrial cities of the North and the current migratory movement to Europe of the refugees from the Middle East.

This album features a trio comprised of Eric and two stellar guests: JJ Milteau (harmonica) and Michael Jerome Browne (guitar, fiddle, banjo…) and, occasionally, a few more classy performers.

Migration Blues will certainly be considered one of Eric Bibb’s major albums as he was nominated for a 2017 Grammy in the 'best traditional Blues album' category.

#Reviews #Blues Stevie Ray Vaughan

Stevie Ray Vaughan, Life Without You Once you gave it all, you wouldn't have any problem, because you already had it...  (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Life without you - Live Alive (vinyl & cassette only)) (1986) A legendary sentence from a legendary artist on a legendary double album...

In order to give, you've had to have.

It makes no sense to give, what you don't have.
It is sensible to give, share with others, what you have, 
because in this way you make good use of the Source,
from which you have received... 

From the Abundance of the Heart, that never runs dry.

In this sense, giving means adding, contributing. 
In this sense, giving is receiving, not taking.

Who carried the legacy, who made us live alive again. 
Who gave it all, full well knowing that,

Once you gave it all, you wouldn't have any problem,because you already had it... 

For this deep feeling, wisdom
and knowledge about Life, Love and Truth,

We salute you...
