LocoBop L2I-172

 

Volume Two of LocoBop’s new Shake the House series will shatter your glasses and topple your chimneys. The lineup here includes Albert King, The Bar-Kays, J. Blackfoot, Eddie Floyd, Luther Ingram, Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers, and more.
 

Curtain raisers, the Barkays romp through one of their glorious funk anthems of the 1980s: “Traffic Jammer”. Then Eddie Floyd steps up with an equally rousing performance in a live version of “On A Saturday Night” from his late 1960s repertoire.
 

One of Louisiana’s top swamp-poppers - G.G. Chinn leads his big band through a regional favorite with “She’s a Big Fat Woman”. Yan C, a Memphis rapper who was under-appreciated at the time is happily repersented on this album with two tracks: “Shake What You Got (Part One)” and “Shake What You Got (Part Two)”.

 

Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers race through their steamy track “Got My Mind Gone” from the LocoBop album Up In Flames. Keeping up the pace, Houston swamp-popper and blues-harmonica virtuoso Tommy Dardar gives us “That's What Keeps Me Rockin'” from his album Blues Fool.
 

Our favorite barrel-house queen, the late Di Anne Price takes us deep into a dark, smoky roadhouse atmosphere with “I’m Not Drunk, I’m Just Drinkin’”. Next up, J. Blackfoot of Taxi fame, sings one of his typically funky Memphis soul classics, “City Slicker”. The Jumpin’ Chi Chis, (the Memphis answer to Joe Butera and the Witnesses) storms the stage now with “Chicks 4 Chi Chi”.
 

Wrapping up, are two former Stax stalwarts: Luther Ingram and Albert King. Luther’s soulful plaint - “It's Too Much” is one of his finest uptempo recordings. Albert’s live version of “Finger On The Trigger” is definitely a show closer.
