Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

An Aladdin's Cave - May 31

What to do on a glorious early summer's day? Let's go for a wander. An hour or so later, stumbling across Fern Avenue Antiques Centre in suburban Newcastle, what a delight! A decommissioned post box on the forecourt, terracotta plant pots, wrought iron this, wrought iron that. Inside, a veritable Aladdin's Cave. You name it, it was in there - vintage toys, vintage typewriters, vintage street signs, posters, pottery, stuffed animals, an endless list of the collectible and not so collectible. 

Items of musical interest included a board advertising some of the artists contracted to the Philips' record label. Famous names all, Doris Day and Winfred Atwell among them. For Brownie points only, no prizes, name the Tyneside based guitarist who recorded with Ms Atwell. Russell

And which local based musician had an altercation with Doris Day in a record store in LA?
