Our other blog, The Midnight Tracker, has been around for three months, and only now are we figuring out how to do it right.
We post a vintage side of vinyl over there roughly once a week.
Over here, we’ll post a little sample of that side, in the hopes you’ll head over there for more.
Tonight on The Midnight Tracker, it’s Side 1 of “Lou Rawls Live!”
Recorded before a room full of music industry folks in Los Angeles in 1966 and produced by David Axelrod, it has everything you’d want — jazz, blues, soul and Rawls’ trademark stream-of-consciousness patter between some of the songs.
This tune features Rawls, of course, and Tommy Strode on piano.
“Tobacco Road,” Lou Rawls, from “Lou Rawls Live!” 1966.
One response to “Midnight Tracker sampler, Vol. 1”
Hey, thanks a lot for posting. Just discovered Lou Rowls and was looking out for something like this.
I’ll keep watching your blog.
