John Sinclair Radio Show: Please Mr. Foreman

John Sinclair Radio Show: Please Mr. Foreman

Episode 717 is coming from Radio Free Amsterdam headquarters in the Cass Corridor of Detroit for my last show from Detroit this summer before I head to Sweden and the Netherlands next week, so I wanted to play some authentiuc Motor City Blues from back in the day, recorded live at the 1973 Ann Arbor blues & Jazz Festival as the Motor City Blues Revue featuring Mack Collins & The Partymakers Incorporated, Little Junior Cannady, Joe L:, Bobo Jenkins, One String Sam, Johnny Mae Matthews, Washboard Willie & His Super Suds of Rhythm, Dr. Ross, Boogie Woogie Red, Baby Boy Warren, Eddie ‘Guitar’ Burns, Louis “Mr. Bo” Collins, Eddie Kirkland, and John Lee Hooker. Most of these artists have gone now, but I was able to gather them together one September afternoon in 1973 to show what Detroit had created in the urban blues idiom.
