Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, September 15th, (1:00-2:30 pm).

Our September 15th program showcased some late-modern blues from Junior Parker, newly available Otis Rush recorded live, solo Magic Sam. We took a couple of tracks from a recent reissue of the important R&B singer Varetta Dillard, one each of her Savoy and RCA recordings. Also, a track from last year’s double CD set Native North America, Vol. 1. Track from CFMU’s Everybody Dance Now #10 by The Vaudevillian led us into the Allen Brothers and we featured a variety of tracks from the collection Work Hard, Play Hard, Pray Hard, gospel tracks from Goodbye Babylon and obscure and “raw” gospel 45s off the collection This May Be My Last Time Singing.to round out the show.
