Johnny Dyer - And The L.A. Jukes

Born 1938, Rolling Fork, Mississippi, USA. Dyer took up the harmonica when he was seven and as a teenager sat in with Smokey Wilson in a local club. He moved to Los Angeles in January 1958 and formed his own band, the Blue Notes, backing visitors such as J.B. Hutto, Jimmy Reed and Jimmy Rogers. He later formed a duo with George Smith, at that time still working as Little Walter Jnr. He recorded a couple of singles for Shakey Jake’s Good Time label before cutting an album, Johnny Dyer And The LA Dukes, for Murray Brothers in 1983. Some of the tracks were later issued in Japan by Mina Records.

Great share, many thanks. I had heard of this LP, but could never find it.

Nice new look, man. It is a pleasure for me to visit your blog once in a while as time permits. I always find something of interest as, obviously, we share common tastes in music.
Please keep on posting. I do love discovering things that I didn't know about or previously could not find.
THANKS, ralph11

I recorded with Johnny Dyer and Shakey Jake around 1982, I wonder if this is that session? I always wondered what happened to the tapes...hmmmm...I guess I'll see here shortly. Thanks!

The recordings are from February 1983 so this could be some of the tracks you're on. Maybe you could share some of your memories of the sessions with us. I'm sure it would be appreciated.
