Dave Specter
Message In Blue

Delmark DE 836

Dave Specter's 10th album, Message in Blue, is a soulful and compelling blend of Specter's original instrumentals along with powerful blues/R&B vocals. Soul legend Otis Clay makes his Delmark debut as special guest on three songs including a re-make of the classic "Got To Find A Way" with Willie Henderson and the Chicago Horns, The Falcons' "I Found A Love" (complete with Specter nod to Robert Ward playing through a Magnatone amplifier) and a tribute to the late Bobby "Blue" Bland, "This Time I'm Gone For Good". Brother John Kattke is on keyboards and vocals while harp ace Bob Corritore guests on two Specter originals. From tough and tone-full Chicago blues guitar to soul-jazz grooves and funky R&B, Message in Blue is sure to satisfy! "One of the few top-tier guitarists." - Down Beat

Steve Freund / Gloria Hardiman Set Me Free
Delmark DE 837

Born and raised in Brooklyn, blues guitarist Steve Freund was reborn a Chicagoan when he relocated in 1976.  The list of people he's played with reads like a Who's Who of Chicago blues legends including Sunnyland Slim, Luther Allison, Lonnie Brooks, Otis Rush, Koko Taylor, Johnny Littlejohn and Big Walter Horton. Originally issued on the Razor label this 1983 album was Steve's debut as leader. It teams him up with vocalist Gloria Hardiman whose voice was one of the richest, toughest blues voices on the Chicago scene at that time...a voice that'll steal your soul and take it right up to heaven. Contains four bonus tracks including the previously unissued "Homework" and "Kiddio" and two by Ken Saydak, keyboardist for the whole album, from a rare '83 Razor single.

Giles Corey's Stoned Soul
Delmark DE 834

Giles Corey's credits include being in the bands of Billy Branch & the Sons of Blues and Otis Rush. Giles also played and recorded with Syl Johnson, Mississippi Heat and Buddy Miles. The talented singer/guitarist was a founding member of the funk/blues/rock & roll powerhouse Lubriphonic. When Lubriphonic stopped touring in 2011, the seed was planted for Stoned Soul, Giles' debut as leader. The band features Marty Sammon on keys, Joewaun Scott on bass and Rick King on drums. The album features eleven new originals and covers of "Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You", a 1971 hit for Wilson Pickett and Gary Clark Jr.'s "Bight Lights". Stoned Soul features a unique blend of roots music, rich in history yet contemporary and forward-looking.

Sleepy John Estes
Live In Japan `74 with Hammie Nixon DE 835

Tennessee blues poet Sleepy John Estes made his recorded debut in 1929 with the song ""Broken Hearted, Ragged and Dirty Too"". In '35 John teamed up with Hammie Nixon and they went on to record many classic sides together until WWII. After a twenty-year absence Delmark's Bob Koester rediscovered John and presented him to the new blues audience in `62. This led to a series of LPs and a reinvigorated career. This album was recorded in November of 1974 at concerts in Japan, one of the very first tours of that country by a blues artist - preceded only by a B.B. King State Department appearance. The Estes tour was a great success and even resulted in an Estes track appearing on the Japanese Top 100 chart! 73 minutes.
