BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 3/20/16

TOMMY BROWN INTERVIEW

This week on BBS we note the passing of Atlanta’s Tommy Brown by presenting a rebroadcast of the interview we did back in 2003. Tommy had quite a resume – James Brown acknowledged his debt to Tommy by co-opting Tommy’s stage routines for his own act. Tommy worked with Billy Wright, The Griffin Brothers and Bill Doggett, with Roy Hawkins and was married to Tina Turner(!) Tommy’s career was better than fiction – Don’t miss it! PLUS we’ll listen to highlights from the 4 CD Jimmy McCracklin set on JSP 1945 – 1955. It all adds up to great listening… (PS If you can’t stay awake download it and listen at your leisure)
