A slide guitarist with a passion for the blues and the hard-hitting sound of a rocker, Mark "Porkchop" Holder first made his name as a member of the raw and rollicking punk-blues trio the Black Diamond Heavies. Holder joined the Black Diamond Heavies in 2004, and appeared on their debut EP, You Damn Right. By 2006, Holder had left the band to strike out on his own, and he traveled across the country and around the globe playing ferocious slide guitar in a one-man-band format. Years of touring took a toll on Holder, and after years of struggle with depression and chemical dependence issues, he returned to his hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee to focus on his health and getting a fresh start. In 2016, Holder began gigging locally with a new backing band he called MPH, featuring Travis Kilgore on bass and backing vocals and Doug Bales on drums. Holder wasted no time taking the band into the studio, and in February 2017 Holder released his first solo album, Let It Slide, via Alive Naturalsound Records.

For most of the time since his last album, he's been an actor (stage, film and television) including a role in the sci-fi cult classic, Space 1999, and a radio presenter on the BBC. Jones is best know to music fans outside the UK as the lead singer of Manfred Mann's hits like "Do Wah Diddy," and "Pretty Flamingo". He's also fronted The Blues Band (they have 17 albums to their credit since their founding in 1979!) and The Manfreds (which features most of the original members of Manfred Mann). He even co-composed the signature tune for Ready, Steady, Go!
The disc is released in the US by Collector's Choice Music and distributed in the UK and Europe by Continental Record Services of The Netherlands.
Produced by Carla Olson, Jones' studio band includes guitarist Jake Andrews, drummer Alvino Bennett, Tony Marisco on bass and Mike Thompson on keyboards. Eric Clapton joins him on two tracks "Choose Or Cop Out," and the title track, "Starting All Over Again." The disc also includes a cover of Van Morrison's "Philospher's Stone.". Soul singing legend Percy Sledge also guests on "Big Blue Diamonds." This track was initially released on Sledge's 2004 solo CD, "Shining Through The Rain."
In 1966, Paul Jones and Eric Clapton - along with Pete York, Steve Winwood, Ben Palmer and Jack Bruce - were part of the studio one-off band, The Powerhouse. A few of the tracks were released on What's Shakin'.

'Remember Me' - Jools Holland wrote this one and Todd Wolfe contributes some dirty delta slide courtesy of his resonator guitar. 'Soul To Soul' - A latter day Temptations anthem with trumpet, sax and trombone, Gregg Sutton's background vocals and guitar by former Bee Gee Vince Melouney. 'Trouble In Mind' - Another standard, here performed by Paul and Jools. 'Straighten Up & Fly Right' - When first hearing this Nat King Cole tune you will think you stumbled into a big band concert hall.

10. Staying Away From Joe - 3:34

Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release. The Hooten Hallers have been busting vans and playing blurry back room bars for a decade but on their self-titled album they come out swinging with new life and a healthy balance of freneticism and focus. Having toured for years as a garage-blues duo, the band has recently evolved to include baritone saxophone player Kellie Everett, who has had stints recording and gigging with the likes of Pokey Lafarge, J.D. Wilkes, The Legendary Shack Shakers and William Elliott Whitmore. Everett's background in jazz standards and music theory are spliced with the unhinged showmanship that have built the Hooten Hallers' rapidly growing national following to create an album that can be at times be wild, in your face, party music while still leaving space for a tender ballad with soul and classic country influence. This type of versatility has allowed The Hooten Hallers to expand their already varied audience. It's not uncommon to walk into one of their shows to see outlaw bikers dancing next to some college kids dancing next to an aging hippie or a couple of parents whose kids are at home with the babysitter. This album, recorded in a repurposed Masonic temple owned by Johnny Walker of the garage-blues band the Soledad Brothers, features contributions from Ryan Koenig (Pokey LaFarge, Jack Grelle) and was produced by Kristo Baricevic of Big Muddy Records.

Very few musical artists achieve a true signature style -- one that makes comparisons to other musicians impossible. But Texas guitarist Eric Johnson arguably comes as close to this echelon as any musician from the past quarter-century. Like fellow Lone Star State guitarists Johnny Winter, Billy Gibbons, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnson blends the rock style of Jimi Hendrix and the blues power of Albert King. Yet Johnson's wide array of additional influences (from the Beatles and Jeff Beck to jazz and Chet Atkins) makes for a guitar sound as unique as his fingerprints.
"When I first heard Eric," Winter recalled, "he was only 16, and I remember wishing that I could have played like that at that age." Former Doobie Brothers guitarist Jeff "Skunk" Baxter said, "If Jimi Hendrix had gone on to study with Howard Roberts for about eight years, you'd have what this kid strikes me as." The Austin prodigy appeared on the cover of Guitar Player magazine while working with Texas jazz/fusion band the Electromagnets and as a session player (Cat Stevens, Carole King, Christopher Cross), and a 1984 performance on the TV show Austin City Limits set his recording career in motion.
Johnson's 1986 debut album, Tones, certainly proved that the hype was warranted. Playing with the ace rhythm section of bassist Roscoe Beck and drummer Tommy Taylor, Johnson mixed blazing instrumentals ("Zap," "Victory") with Beatles-influenced vocal tunes like "Emerald Eyes" and "Bristol Shore." Johnson used the same half-and-half format on his 1990 follow-up, Ah Via Musicom, but a trio of the album's tunes surprisingly made him the first artist to have three instrumentals from the same album to chart in the Top Ten in any format (with "Cliffs of Dover" earning Johnson a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental).
But, if Johnson had a perceived weakness, it was the perfectionism that caused four years to pass between recordings. Even in concert, he would painstakingly tune his guitar between songs, by ear, for minutes on end. With the success of Ah Via Musicom, the guitarist admitted to feeling pressure to raise the bar again. But Johnson's studio nitpicking delayed Venus Isle until 1996, and the disappointing CD contained fewer instrumentals and sounded forced.
A stint on the 1997 G3 tour with fellow headlining guitarists Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, and its resulting live release, breathed new life into Johnson and sparked the idea of a live album. Overhauling his band for the 2000 CD Live and Beyond, Johnson brought in bassist Chris Maresh and drummer Bill Maddox, and concentrated on more of a blues feel. The guitarist still blended instrumentals with his vocal tunes ("Shape I'm In," "Last House on the Block"), but perhaps realized that his thin voice was too one-dimensional for guttural blues or R&B. Guest vocalist Malford Milligan ignited "Don't Cha Know" and "Once a Part of Me," helping Johnson's blazing debut on Vai's Favored Nations label and reestablishing the versatile virtuoso's status for the 21st century. As Vai himself testified, "Eric has more colorful tone in his fingers than Van Gogh had on his palette."
Souvenir, an album available only through Johnson's website, appeared in 2002, followed by CD and DVD versions of New West's Live from Austin, TX and Bloom, the second album for Vai's Favored Nations imprint, in 2005. Johnson returned in 2010 with Up Close, a studio album that slightly emphasized the guitarist's Texas roots. A collaboration with jazz guitarist Mike Stern, Eclectic, appeared in 2014. Two years later, Johnson released EJ, his first-ever all-acoustic album, which he supported with a solo tour. ~ Bill Meredith

Heaven & Earth is rockin’ Americana & hill country blues with melodic harmonies and rhythms that groove … turn it up and take a trip through southern America … here are some great songs of love, faith, friendship, wandering and longing and beauty. From the mountains of Appalachia to Biloxi, from Clarksdale and Otha Turner’s farm to Tupelo and then to the hills and mountains of Tennessee this work is in the true American songwriting tradition.
Some artists just cannot be kept down they are irrepressible. Their years of traveling the roads of the South, playing anywhere they can and writing and performing some of the best tunes that two people can possibly put together eventually will show even the best critics and record labels that they are truly a force to be reckoned with. So it is with Blue Mother Tupelo, the husband and wife team of Ricky & Micol Davis of Hendersonville, TN. With this CD, self-produced and laden with a couple of friends, they have made one of the finest CDs I have heard this year. For the blues fans out there you will take the Blues wherever you find it and realize that this music is true and, also, a product of the Southern fried tradition ... they are true indie singer-songwriters that have put forth a thing of beauty. I predict some great things for Blue Mother Tupelo. --Gary W. Miller, BluesSource.com (C) 2009
The end result is like a meal of homegrown vegetables -- technically, they're the same as the stuff you've eaten before that's come from a grocery store, but there's something so much fresher, so much more authentic, about ingesting something that's been lovingly cared for and hand-crafted. It's a slurry of sound from a grab-bag of Southern soil -- rich silt from the Mississippi Delta ... thick loam from the cotton fields of north Alabama ... wet peat from Louisiana ... red clay mud from East Tennessee. It's earthy and gritty and celebratory -- it's the sound of two people who aren't afraid to get that dirt beneath their nails, who recognize that callused hands and muddy jeans are hallmarks of a hard-working man or woman to be worn with pride. --Steve Wildsmith - The Maryville Daily Times (May 8, 2009)
