CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

My Time After Awhile - Tiny Powell

Vance Powell was born in Warren, AR. on May 17, 1922. He was known to be a vocalist in the gospel group The Paramount Singers from the mid-1940's up until 1951, when he became a singer with The Five Blind Boys of Mississippi. In the 1960's he decided to try his hand at being a blues artist on the West Coast cutting a few singles for small labels such as Wax, Ocampo, & Earlybird up until 1968. Not getting any recognition in the blues field, he soon rejoined The Paramount Singers as a member until 1973. Powell passed away in Oakland, CA. on February 5, 1984. There is a photo of Powell that was published in "Blues Who's Who" by Sheldon Leonard, but I was unable to find it on the internet. "My Time After Awhile" was later covered by Buddy Guy
