On Sale Now! John Clifton – Nightlife

On Nightlife, Clifton ramps up his game by multiple notches, seamlessly translating his onstage blend of West Coast and Chicago Blues, ’50s style hard R&B and Soul, and high energy vintage Rock’n’Roll to the studio for a dozen tracks that sizzle and shake to perfection. “The new record is the live band, the guys who I play with every night,” says Clifton. “So it definitely has more of a live feel to it. These songs have been a part of our live set for some time now, so when we went in and recorded them, we just turned on the tape machine and let it roll.” The album is already being hailed in the US, Europe and Australia as one of the year’s best, and has also begun to appear on blues, roots and rockabilly charts worldwide.

“Nightlife’ is a fine and varied blues album with five original Clifton songs that proves he is an excellent musician / harpist. We look forward to hearing more!“

On Sale Now: Kid Ramos – Old School

A lot has happened since the last record, Greasy Kid’s Stuff in 2001. Since then I’ve fathered two small boys into young men, beat cancer…It’s been about 17 years. I figured it was about the right time to put a Blues record out. My youngest son Johnny has joined the family business. This is his singing debut on this album and he was only 17 at the time of the recording. I’m excited to still be playing guitar, happy
that people still want to see and hear me, and haven’t thrown any rocks at me yet. This album was made in two days at Big Jon Atkinson’s home studio in Hayward, California. It was recorded live to tape on two tracks using all analog equipment, vintage microphones, and the brilliant technique of Jon Atkinson’s recording. The album includes the expert playing of Kedar Roy on bass, Marty Dodson on drums, Bob Welsh on piano/organ, Danny Michel on 2nd guitar, the great Johnny Tucker on vocals, and the legendary Kim Wilson performing vocals on one song.
