If you like Blues played Chicago style then this album is for you. In fact I was amazed to discover it was recorded in The 'Toe Rag Studio' circa London in 1995!
The line up features Jamaican born Big Joe Louis on vocals, guitar and mandolin. Little George Sueref on brilliant vocals, harmonica, guitar and double bass, Matt Radford again on double bass and Brian Nevill on Drums. Also guest musicians Carl Sonny Leyland on Piano and John Primer and David Purdey guitars.
The bulk of the tracks are also originals written either by Joe Louis or George Sueref. This album is well worth a punt and I recommend it highly.
Indeed, as their first record producer the legendary Mike Vernon said
"Working with Big Joe Louis And His Blues Kings was a real experience and one I would not have missed for the world. Take it from me - this is as tough as it gets this side of the pond!"
Yes indeed! a Wow Factor.
The rythm section is solid, add the Harp playing of little George S and you have a great, simple blues band. They don't overcrowd their songs, it's very refreshing.
Joe had replaced mile sanchez. Mikes band have a very similar 50s blues sound. Also carl sonny leyland who guests on big sixteen had his own band in the early 80s. The Krewmen, klassic tracks from 1985 can be found on lost moment records.
