FTX- 037 - LONDON BLUES & BOTTLENECK

SKYPORT ADE & HIS ONE-MAN BAND

 

10 Blues, 2 Rags and 1 Bottleneck, with a steel guitar, mouth-harp, kazoo, cymbal & drums. Ever since hearing Muddy Waters, Adrian TUCKER has been a Blues addict. Born under the flight path of London Airport, Heathrow, "Skyport" has taken a cynical view of urban life. He sings the Blues, because that's the way he feels and, however the Blues booms come or go, he's just going to stay that way. From 1966 he ran the Angler's Folk Blues Club in Teddington, Surrey. Here are some "Crane River Delta Blues", about people encountered in the Thames Valley, backed up by mouth-harp (harmonica), steel guitar and drums, with each blues introduced by Adrian - recorded by Peter Kennedy at Dartington Ciderhouse, Devon in 1975
