Tad Robinson has made a filler-free quality soul-blues record that faithfully follows in the stellar tradition of Hill, Bland and Little Milton.
JJ Grey and Mofro started out as a very good band. ‘Georgia Warhorse,’ released on August 24, 2010, catapulted them to greatness.

Live Aid, held on July 13, 1985, was more than a great cause for Hall and Oates. It was, as John Oates tells us, a chance to “come full circle.”
Here is a sneak peek of a track from the great lost Isley Brothers album, ‘Wild In Woodstock: The Isley Brothers Live At Bearsville Sound Studio 1980.’ It’s a funky, uptempo number called “Here We Go Again.”
