Once again it's my aim to share my blues LP's that are hard to find, bloody expensive or a waste of time. I have the naive hope that it will get you interested enough to buy some new releases and support the blues.
If I've missed giving credit for a review, rip, photo or whatever just leave me a comment and I'll correct or remove it ... no problem.
That been said enjoy the music as long as it lasts and any help is always welcome.
William "Willie" Lee Perryman (October 19, 1911 – July 25, 1985, usually known professionally as Piano Red and later in life as Dr. Feelgood, was an American blues musician, the first to hit the pop music charts. He was a self-taught pianist who played in the barrelhouse blues style (a loud percussive type of blues piano suitable for noisy bars or taverns). His performing and recording careers emerged during the period of transition between completely segregated "race music" and "rhythm and blues", which was marketed to white audiences. Some music historians credit Perryman's 1950 recording "Rocking With Red" for the popularization of the term rock and roll in Atlanta.His simple, hard-pounding left hand and his percussive right hand, coupled with his cheerful shout brought him considerable success over three decades.
