Thanks! He's all new to me!

@ Soulpapa, Hi-Tide seems to be an underrated artist even though he made the crossover to John Mayall in the 70's. I've posted, as far as I know, everything except his CD Baby Cd download.

Thank you ..!!

@Xyros. He was big news back in the mid 1970s, playing alongside heavy hitters like Charlie Musselwhite, John Mayall, Larry Taylor. Then he went to Japan and pretty well vanished overnight from the international blues scene. Guess he met and fell in love with a Japanese gal and decided to make a new home and life there.

Bob Mac, this one I've never seen or heard of before and it looks interesting.
Coming 2 weeks I'm lazing around on a beach and recuperating on a sunny terras and I hope that when I get back you have a nice surprise for me.

Xyros. I've been doing some research on Hi Tide Harris.


"Slow Down Baby" & "My Conscience Is Bothering Me" (Sea Side #9555-0110) Recorded at San Francisco, California In 1965.
4 Tracks: "Messaround", Charlie Stone", "Tipitina" & "Never Will Forget Your Love" on the Blue Bay LP (Messaround Records 001) 1976.


Also appears with Paul Jackson & Marty Bracey on the album "Black Music from Jirokichi" (P-Vine Records PCD - 5708) Released in Japan in 1996
And there is another album titled "HiTide Harris Blues Band" - I can't find any info on this album and don't know which lable it came out on but I do have a small image of the cover, so it does exist.

@Xyros: I managed to track down a copy of The Hey Day Of Hi Tide Harris (TEZU Records 0002) Maple Blues kindly posted it for us @160kbps. You can find it in HGR Basement.

I now have a copy of the Seaside 45 (from Gerard)

So now searching for the other 2 albums.
