Tad Robinson – Last Go Round
Delmark DE 722 (1998)
Tad is a singer/songwriter extraordinaire whose blues have been influenced by many sources including Chicago blues, R&B, soul, and pop, and then there’s his great harmonica playing! Robinson’s main man was the late Arthur Alexander, and Tad’s high-quality songwriting reflects Alexander’s story-in-song emphasis. As on Tad’s first album, One To Infinity (Delmark 673), long-time friend and musical partner Alex Schultz is on guitar. Alex is best known from his work with Rod Piazza and the Mighty Flyers but he also recorded with William Clarke on Alligator and toured with Hank Ballard & The Midnighters.
