Big legged Woman / Medley - Robert Ealey

Robert Ealey (December 6, 1925 – March 8, 2001) was an African American electric blues singer, who performed Texas blues. Among other releases, he recorded a couple of albums for Black Top Records in the 1990s, having earlier formed a duo with U.P. Wilson. Ealey also worked with Tone Sommer, Mike Buck, and Mike Morgan. Ealey's best known work included "One Love One Kiss" and "Turn Out The Lights". He variously worked with the Boogie Chillun Boys, the Juke Jumpers and the Five Careless Lovers. Robert Daniel Ealey was born in Texarkana, Texas, United States, and in his teens sang in a quartet in his local church. Following service in the Army in World War II, Ealey moved to Dallas in 1951, having been singing professionally from the age of 20. In Fort Worth, he formed a duo, the Boogie Chillun Boys, with the guitarist U.P. Wilson. The Boogie Chillun Boys provided inspiration to fellow Texan singer and guitarist Ray Sharpe. The Bluebird Club in Fort Worth was Ealey's musical base for more than thirty years. His involvement was such that he co-owned the club from 1977 to 1989. His 1973 live album, Live at the New Bluebird Nightclub, was billed as by Robert Ealey and the Five Careless Lovers, and included contributions from Mike Buck. It was produced by T-Bone Burnett. By the 1990s Ealey, and his guitarist Tone Sommer, started touring more widely, and their authentic Texas blues found a wider audience in the US and Europe. Television advertisement work also expanded the recognition of Ealey's music. His 1996 album, Turn Out the Lights, issued by Black Top Records, saw Ealey work with blues accompanists including Mike Morgan and Sommer on guitar. The 1997 follow-up, I Like Music When I Party was similarly successful. Ealey died in Fort Worth on March 8, 2001, of undisclosed causes following an automobile accident the previous December. He was aged 75. He was interred with military honors at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery. In 2003, Aristokraft issued the compilation album, Robert Ealey: Blues That Time Forgot.

The Texas Bluesmen European Rhythm & Blues Revue stars consisted of Texas blues veterans Curly 'Barefoot' Miller (92 yrs.), Robert Ealey (71 yrs.) and Joe Jonas (59 yrs.). So, what you're holding in your hands here is piece of Blues History. This is the Texas Bluesmen Revue recorded live at the Floz in Berlin, Germany on 22 February, 1995.
