Log in Registration. This is just the latest of a growing number of live recordings featuring Magic Sam that have surfaced over recent years. While the sound quality of these are variable, the performances have been uniformly excellent. Thankfully we get the best of both worlds here; a committed and energetic performance from a top-drawer Chicago Different Dreams - Ya Ho Wha 13 - God And Hair (Box Set) trio and a sound that captures the atmosphere of the intimate setting.
Not that Jim Charne, who engineered and produced these recordings is having any of it. In the informative notes to this release, Charne writes that the recording equipment was primitive and the layout of the room meant there was no place to put the tape machine except against the bandstand. The only thing he had to compensate for the limitations was his experience of working the room and knowing where to place microphones to best effect. Personally I think he is being unduly modest as what he has captured, which to me is delicious and delirious late 60s Chicago blues at its best.
Some 45 years after his premature, unexpected and fatal heart attack at the tender age of 32 a mere year and a bit after this hot night in Milwaukee the untapped genius of Magic Sam continues to captivate the minds of blues fans across the world. These 16 tracks provide further evidence that these fans know a thing or If I Had Any Sense (1954) - Ruth Brown - Taking Care Of Business: Singles As & Bs 1953-1960 + Bonus.
Their banter is more than just enjoyable however, it acts as an enlightening guide to the music they are playing, incorporating eleven rare and littleheard sides from the If I Had Any Sense (1954) - Ruth Brown - Taking Care Of Business: Singles As & Bs 1953-1960 + Bonus s anda year at which Crumb entertainingly but adamantly states his interest in recorded music does not extend beyond.
Elsewhere, as well as obscure, the unearthed treasure presented here is also marvellously varied, from the beautiful Guenene Tini by Cheikha Tetma, recorded in Algeria inthrough to excursions into sacred and religious recordings. And for more secular blues, the deeply affecting Last Kind Words by Geeshie Wiley is claimed by Crumb to be one of the greatest sides ever recorded.
Not that it is essential to be briefed about this music to appreciate its various charms. All told, a fabulous way to spend an hour, all presented in a lovely digi-pack featuring nice notes and an original Robert Crumb illustration on the cover. Not only are they the best around in researching, re-mastering, compiling and Fantasy - Perturbator - Nocturne City great music, they also have a keen eye for a concept.
The most influential involvement however is that of Ike Turner, who was the Biharis go-to-guy for supplying booked sessions with artists, supporting musicians, arrangements and songs. Ike only appears once here as a featured artist but he casts a giant shadow over most of these sides especially those recorded for Flair rather than licensed. There are also lots of fine little-known artists featured, many now on CD for the first time. So a great start to what will undoubtedly be a highly-prized series.
The venue for this amazing performance was a nightclub in a less than salubrious part of downtown Bamako, capital city of Mali. In front of a raucous but appreciative and good natured audience, the music smoulders and hypnotises, helped in no small part by the acoustics and atmosphere of the club. This track alone is sufficient evidence that we are listening to a major artist and is worth the admission price alone. For the remaining eight tracks, Lobi is joined by a rock solid band, allowing his spectral electric guitar riffs and solos to float and shimmer.
The influences on these tracks take in much more than African blues, amply demonstrating why Lobi fought against attempts to tightly pigeonholed his music into a pre-defined category. Unfortunately Lobi passed away in aged on 49 but this newly-released live set from reminds us of a unique talent that is well worth investigating.
