  • This Is A GREAT Album! William Bell

    If you have any interest in great singing by a veteran blues singer this album will not disappoint. William Bell - "This Is Where I Live" is, in my opinion, an instant classic. Produced by John Levanthal (Rosanne Cash) you know it has to be great. William Bell goes way back, he wrote "Born Under a Bad Sign" and this is his first album in 30 years. He was recently featured in the Memphis music documentary “Take Me To The River,” where William and Snoop Dogg performed another of his compositions.

      I'm listening to this now- the third cut on the first side sounds much like one of the older Robert Cray records. Also, assuming this was pulled from a digital master, it has no negative artifacts. Great recommendation. Thank ya!

          I'm sure I will. And btw...I like gospel and been looking at some Mavis Staples. Any recommendations?

          Go see her live if you can; I missed a show we had tickets for- my wife has heard her twice now--but in terms of recorded catalog, I don't know. Maybe someone else here can help?

                That's because it isn't BLUES. It's R&B/Soul.

              A little CCR on "Mississippi-Arkansas Bridge"?

                It reminds me of alot of Keb Mo's music. I'm going to order some of his other stuff. Any one heard anything else by him?

                  Just watched Episode 3 of Quarry- it's the wind down of Vietnam, a couple of ex-Vets are back home and already in deep shit. There's this guy and his band in a Memphis bar doing Bad Sign. It's William Bell. Kick-ass.
