The Cash Box Kings and other great Blues Songs

February 27, 2012

Curation can take many forms – whether it’s the preservation of digital assets, historical record keeping and archiving, including cultural heritage conversation, indexing and cataloguing, or even healing.

When working late tonight I listened to a few old blues tracks carefully curated by Martin Schäfer of DRS3, a local radio station. He selected tonight a really great selection of new blues tunes, preserving the original Chicago Sound. A curative experience indeed. Listen yourself some of the samples or the full hour.

A good start in to the evening with Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat by Raphael Saadiq.

Simply great songs from the Cash Box Kings: For example That’s my Gal, or Holler & Stomp. And a great Off the Hook.

More of this great band? Sure what about the I-94 Blues or the St.Paul Wintertime Blues?

A little more swing with George Thorogood and his 2120 South Michigan Avenue song. 

And to end a great listening experience a little known Rolling Stone song: The Red Rooster.
