This is the same, remarkable music which earned Clay both global media recognition & raving hoards of near-rabid fans who now eagerly gobble up each & every available recording unearthed from Clay's pleasure chest of archived tracks.
This batch is composed of seamlessly-interwoven, boogie woogie blues-based tracks, marked by Clay's rich, sexy, vocals.
Most of these tunes are from the legendary "Santa Fe sessions of 1989", recorded just before Clay contracted the crippling Multiple Sclerosis which plagues him to this day and prevents him from ever again playing piano.

Mischo explains: "I was at the King Biscuit Blues Festival watching a performance of Anson Funderburgh when the vision for this album came to me. I knew the drummer Wes Starr lived in Austin, Texas. I asked him right then and there if he would be interested in working with me on this project." Joining Starr on the Austin sessions are guitarists Nick Curran and Johnny Moeller, bassist Ronnie James Weber, and pianist Nick Connolly. Drummer Richard Medek, and Mischo's old pal, guitarist Jeremy Johnson, are also on board for a couple of lowdown tracks recorded in St. Paul, Minnesota.

11 - Who's Gonna Be Your Sweet Man
For many years Eddie Bean, who died in 1985, hosted informal music and gambling gatherings at the family’s house on 'Bean Hill' in west Pontotoc. He also worked as a sharecropper, enlisting Terry and other of his fourteen children to pick cotton in the surrounding fields.
Terry began playing guitar and harmonica as a child, and eventually his father began featuring him at the home gatherings and taking him along to other house parties. Terry decided to 'get serious' about the blues in 1988 after visiting the Delta Blues Festival in Greenville. Every weekend for three years Terry traveled to Greenville and its environs to play harmonica with James 'T-Model' Ford as well as Asie Payton at various juke joints. He also played across the Delta with artists including Lonnie Pitchford.
These days Terry travels the world solo and with his band bringing Hill Country and Delta blues to every growing authentic blues loving fan base. His live performances are an amazing example of what it means to have fire and raw power. He is one of the best living bluesman in the world and would have held his own in any generation. Terry is hands down at the top of the heap as a Harmonica and Guitar player.
On this live album, Terry "Harmonica" Bean and the Cornlickers take you back in time with "Rock This House Tonight", an incredible recording that captures the sound and furry of the house parties Terry grew up with.

11 - When You Got A Good Friend
Hernan Senra "Chino" has proposed to pay tribute to one of his historical references. This album recorded by 16 August (day of his death) contains 13 of the 29 songs recorded by Robert Johnson. In this adventure is accompanied by Rod Deville on bass, Marti Elias on drums, and Victor collaborations doors on harmonica and ukulele Albert Bello.
Getting out of the lane along the shoulder and avoiding the use of trying to copy note fornote,"Chino" revisits the teacher, as they did at the time who electrified the music of "Delta" during the first half of the twentieth century.
Keeping the essence, but by appropriating the issues and impregnating them with his character, "Chino" delights us with a record that simply tastes like Blues ...

Andy grew up in a house with a piano and a lot of Dixieland Jazz records, amplified after a while by a cornet that his dad got him. At about fifteen, he got bitten by the Folk Music bug, and soon got to hear records by Big Bill Broonzy and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, both of which reminded him of the music he grew up to. At sixteen, he saw Rev. Gary Davis, and his course was set. He knew he had it in him to follow, study, perform and promote the music of the southeast quadrant,America's musical mother lode.
A list of Andy's musical friends and acquaintances would fill several pages. He has studied the music
of hundreds of blues guitar players and piano players. Here is a list that hits the high points:
Willie Walker, Lemon Jefferson, Lead Belly, Davis, Broonzy, Skip James, Bukka White, Rev. Robert Wilkins, Brownie McGhee, the list goes on. He's been "lead boy" for Jim Brewer, Rev. Dan Smith, and Brother Daniel Womack and briefly, Rev, Davis himself; hung out with John Jackson, Phil Wiggins, John Cephas, Hank Duncan, Honeyboy Edwards, Mad Dog Lester, Big Joe Duskin, Pigmeat Jarrett, Howard Armstrong, Carl Martin,Ted Bogan, Elizabeth Cotten, Etta Baker, John Dee Holeman, Fris Holloway, Larry Johnson, Eugene Powell, Johnnie Shines,Will Dukes and many others. He has given support when he could to deserving players, and arranged work for many more, organized festivals and small venues for them and others to play in, written about several of the old guys and studied their work in a systematic way, and taught a couple of dozen players who are now professionals.
Andy salutes Tony Piedade, who sold him his first fiddle half a lifetime ago.
"Ragtime" Jack Radcliffe:
Jack also grew up in a house with a piano and a lot of Dixieland Jazz records.Another barber shop figured prominently in Jack's early musical development. Next door to Romie's Barber Shop on
Mechanics Lane in New Bedford was the Windsor Music Store. After every haircut, Jack would take a few quarters into the music store and buy sheet music, mostly Dixieland arrangements for small combos. Matt Perry, who occasionally subbed on piano for the late great Frankie Carl, was Jack's piano teacher and between the Bartok and the Brahms he'd slip Jack some pointers on boogie woogie and big band.The folk music revival of the 50s came along just in time, as well, and by the time Jack ran into Larry Johnson he had a pretty good understanding of country blues. At that time Larry was being touted as the next generation of country blues players. Prestige even released an album titled "Blues:The Next Generation," produced by Sam Charters. Jack and Larry worked at a few gigs doing a Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell kind of thing. After hitting the road on the folk music circuit during the coffeehouse surge of the 60s, Jack settled in very musical Newport, R.I. Jack's band,"The New Viper Revue" roared and stomped throughout the Northeast in the early and mid-70s, preaching the joyful gospel of the fusion of New Orleans Jazz, Rhythm and Blues and Piedmont Blues.
But it was his 15-year, 2,500-plus-gig partnership with the late clarinetist Al Oliveira where
Jack sprouted his own roots in traditional American jazz and blues.
And the funny thing about this new partnership with Andy Cohen is that Tony Piedade and his barber shop were the cause of it all. It was time for Andy to get back to New Bedford and pick up another of Tony's wonderful instruments ... and Jack just happened to have moved back to his native city.

Max Mauro and a monstrous show versatility in playing any type of rope (probably also would be able to play a drying rack of clothes!), Their voices are full, rich and well intersect with the beautiful Veronica, capable of addressing the larger genera different, really a singer every day more flexible (also note: his performances with more rock Rusties) and Cecala also surprised at hand, how can we appreciate its workhorse, the traditional lead to success by J. Leadbelly version here in the very western, titled Out On The Wester Plains.
