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!

What Your Lover Means To Me-Larry Dale

Larry Dale (January 7, 1923 – May 19, 2010) was an American blues singer and guitarist. He was born in Wharton, Texas, United States. During the early 1950s Ennis Lowery (his legal name) took initial inspiration on guitar playing from B.B. King, soon making his first recordings as a sideman for Paul Williams & His Orchestra (on Jax Records) and for Big Red McHouston & His Orchestra, and under his then chosen moniker "Larry Dale" (for the RCA subsidiary Groove Records) with a band that included Mickey Baker and pianist Champion Jack Dupree. Dale worked the New York club circuit with the pianist Bob Gaddy. He also was a frequent session guitarist in the New York studios, playing on all four of Dupree's 1956–58 sessions for RCA's Groove and Vik subsidiaries, and on the best known Dupree LP, 1958's Blues from the Gutter, for Atlantic. His playing on that album inspired Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones. Dale made most of his best sides as a leader when the decade turned from the 1950s to the 1960s. For Glover Records he recorded the party blues "Let the Doorbell Ring" and "Big Muddy" in 1960, then revived Stick McGhee's "Drinkin' Wine-Spo-Dee-O-Dee" in 1962 on Atlantic. He died in New York in May 2010, at the age of 87 If you support live Blues acts, up and coming Blues talents and want to learn more about Blues news and Fathers of the Blues, Like ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page!
