Blues and Rhythm Show 223 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)R

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, March 29th (1:00 to 2:30pm)

The History of Soul label is a soul music-dedicated label that we have been waiting for. All kinds of vintage soul music has been reissued over the years on LP and CD–artist compilations, label compilations, regional and studio collections. History of Soul appear to be attempting to present the history of the music in their various album releases from gospel and R&B to the earliest soul recordings up to the beginnings of funk. This week on the Blues & Rhythm Show we are looking at the three double album sets from H.O.S. that carry the title Where Southern Soul Began, Volumes 1,2, and 3, the collections covering differing periods of time but together spanning the years 1954 to 1963. While other H.O.S collections have documented the gospel records that the compilers suggest lead to the emergence of soul music, these collections are focused on blues, R&B and the earlier examples of southern soul music on record. It’s a serious undertaking although there is no attempt by the compilers to explain their approach, so the music is left to tell the story by itself. There are pretty extensive liner notes providing profiles of the artists but usually without explaining their place in the development of southern soul. We’re going to play a selection from the 6 CDs. We’ve tried to present a balance of styles and of the different recording centers and record labels represented in the collection.

Blues and Rhythm Show 141 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, August 5th (1:00-2:30 pm)

We play a pretty broad variety of blues and blues artists on this program but a hurried survey told us we hadn’t played a number of significant blues artists from Chicago in not quite three years on the air. We decided to devote one of our midsummer specials to correcting the situation so far as we could in 90 minutes. Blues recordings began to disappear from the R&B charts in the late fifties. In Chicago, a number of clubs closed and blues performers retired or took on full-time employment. For all the disruption that occurred in the club scene and to the lives of individual performers, blues continued to be a source of entertainment in Chicago. It retained an audience in south and west side clubs and a new audience helped support blues in places it might not have been heard before. Some performers not only met the challenge of soul music but made elements of soul part of their style. Our special will feature a selection of blues performers from the 1970s and ’80s. We’ll try to present a fairly representative selection of the blues styles that could be heard in Chicago in this twenty years span, featuring music mostly from blues specialist labels.

On the Show:

Hound Dog Taylor – Willie Williams – Mighty Joe Young – Good Rockin’ Charles – Luther Allison – Big Time Sarah – Artie “Blues Boy” White – Gloria Hardiman

Listen to the program at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.mcmaster.ca. The program will be available to stream or as a podcast until September 2nd.
