When is sound choice going to come out
with an all blues cd? music maestro has a few of them but the quality sucks and I like rock and country BUT the karaoke scene is
literally saturated with it. I am passionate
about the blues, and I think it is about time sound choice makes a series of just
blues discs!

Yes, another blues disc would be great...

Maybe even a three-of-a-kind with people like:

Stevie Ray Vaughn,
Allman Brothers,
Robert Cray....

That would certainly get my attention

So, Cliff, I take it this notion of a Blues disc has your attention, huh? Maybe we could get your Stevie Ray fix in there.

Actually, Courtney brought up the very idea of another Blues disc about two weeks ago, so we're headin' for the crossroads together.

So let's hear the song requests, both personal and from customers of the KJs.

I agree with Lonman: KWS is rockin'..
For blues, may I recommend some more Blues Brothers hits? Yes, All Hits did a couple of them, but not so well that they couldn't be done better...there are too many to list-
however...a couple that come to mind off of "BB2K" are "Maybe I'm Right" by Blues Traveler and "Funky Nassau"- definite grooves...(although "Nassau" doesn't quite fit the blues format...still..)

I've had requests from my customers to get Susan Tedeschi songs but there is none available that I know of.

I had no idea who she was until one customer brought in her latest CD. She's got kind of a Janis Joplin quality to her voice. Isn't she around 15 years old or something crazy like that?

I don't know what the popular songs of hers are but I think she would be a good addition to any blues disc.

Susan Tedeschi is young, but not that young...you're probably getting her confused with Shannon Curfman, who is still a teenager. Susan Tedeschi who's in her 20s, I'd guess does have a very Janis-esque quality to her voice, and the two songs that got airplay (off her debut album) were "Hurts So Bad" and "Rock Me Right." Both excellent choices for karaoke release (hint, hint, BC).

Shannon Curfman has a deeper voice, with a little more of a grunge rock sound, but still very bluesy. Supposedly, she was "discovered" by Jonny Lang. I know a few of her songs have already made it onto karaoke, but maybe if SC did a contemporary female blues disc, they could be compiled, along with songs by Tedeschi, Bonnie Raitt, and possibly other artists like Ricki Lee Jones, Shelby Lynne or Lucinda Williams...

Is this a test or request?

SC has already done a Willie tune or two on the previous Blues discs. Additionally, "I Can't Quit You Baby" (listed above)would arguably qualify as the most famous of all the great Willie Dixon tunes.

This would be due to the fact that the big man had to sue the frilly-cuffed-dandies to remind them (!?!) to list his name as the songwriter on this specific song (along with "You Shook Me") when their first album was released back in 1969 (!?).

Also, SC has already covered the Doors version of "Back Door Man".


But Willie is right up there with Muddy, Howlin' Wolf, B.B. King, Sonny Boy Williamson, Robert Johnson, Son House, John Lee Hooker and many, many others as a "father of the blues" and 'without-him- they-couldn't-have-done-it" link between the Mississippi Delta, to Chicago, to-white-boys-can-play-it-too.

This is a fun disc to make. My early prediction: the lyrics on the Little Milton tune make it a fun favorite for karaoke.

B.C., How about considering Bonnie Raitt's "Women Be Wise" and "Louise" for one of your future Blues discs. Also, please find a place for "Give It Up Or Let Me Go" by Bonnie Raitt. You once mentioned doing a disc of originals and remakes. This song would fit that CDG. The original is by Bonnie Raitt and the cover is by the Dixie Chicks. I know I already started a Bonnie Raitt category, but as you pointed out to me, her early stuff was straight blues so I wanted to put her in here as well. Thanks.

Hey, blues fans!

It was great to join this board yesterday and find a lively exchange on music near and dear to my heart.

In general, I am not much for the modern, look-at-me-I'm-a-guitar-wizard-who-belongs-in heavy-metal-but-I'm-playing-blues-to-show-everybody-what-a-self-absorbed-maestro-I-am variety of most modern (and mostly white) blues artists. I also don't really appreciate Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi,et.al.and most other female performers. Etta James, Koko Taylor and Janis Joplin can sing the blues. Shamikia Copeland can also hang in there. Otherwise, there is not a woman I've heard who does not resemble a midget in an NBA game. JMHO. (Midgets have every right in the world to play basketball; they'll just never cut it in the NBA). Some of the women doing blues might qualify as tall midgets but they remain "vertically challenged" metaphorically speaking.

For those who have asked about Stevie Ray, there is a MM blues disc (dare I mention it on this board?) that has "Looking Out the Window", "Texas Flood" "Tightrope" and "Love Struck Baby" on it. MM also has a disc with "The House is Rockin'" and "Pride and Joy". "Pride and Joy is also on one of the two SC blues CD+G's. Of course, a lot of SR's music leans to rock more than blues.

Anything by Taj Mahal would be the bomb. His cover of "Leaving Trunk" is just about my favorite. Junior Wells is also the bomb.

There were a number of calls for the Allman Brothers. There is a ton of their music on SoundChoice already. There is also a fair amount of Led Zeppelin, although only one of their blues covers--- "I'm Gonna Quit You Babe", I think--is on their SC compilation disc.

Let keep turning the squeeky wheel. Maybe we'll get some action.

Ever hear of Bob Cousy, Mugsy Bogues, or Allen Iverson? I wonder if they know they can't play?


PS - "Corrina, Corrina", "You're Gonna Need Somebody On Your Bond", and a dozen others from his 30-year career are great records - but they won't pay for themselves in the karaoke world.

It would be nice to have Taj on a blues disc.

My metaphor referred to actual midgets (a/k/a dwarfs) not relatively short NBA players. I hope it didn't come off as mean-spirited. I didn't mean it that way.

I, too, am a big fan of Taj and was fortunate to be in the front row when he performed at the San Diego Street Scene in September. I agree with your suggestions. I also like his cover of the reggae song "Johnny You're Too Bad". The original was on the soundtrack from "The Harder They Come" in the early 70's.

One thing that really surprises me is that there is not a lot more karaoke covers of the 60's r&b from the Stax/Volt label. Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Rufus and Carla Thomas, William Bell and that great stable of great artists. Anytime anyone does one of the limited Stax/Volt songs that are on karaoke discs, the house usually gets cookin'. This must be a problem with acquiring rights, who knows.

I would also like to see a few more Southern Rock discs. It's not technically blues, but it's pretty close. I think Sound Choice has three out now. They are all great. A few more Black Crowes songs would be just about right.

Jake a minor correction

I'm A Man by Muddy Waters is Actually called Manish Boy I'm hoping that it is on the upcoming disk. I have the MM version of the song and it is really bad.

I also would like to see some Albert Collins out there Mastercharge would be great but I think I Ain't Drunk would just play better on Karaoke. I like both song though.
