Blues Man’s Ball Volume Two is the second release in LocoBop’s series showcasing southern blues at its best. While Rufus Thomas, Tommy Tate, and Eddie Floyd made their mark as soul singers, they reveal here their genuine blues credentials. Ivory Joe Hunter sold millions of records as a crossover crooner, but his early blues roots are on full display here. 

Eddie Cotton is a rising, dynamic young bluesman in the tradition of Little Milton, Howlin’ Wolf, and Muddy Waters.  

Di Anne Price’s stride piano is so old-fashioned it's refreshingly new. Close your eyes, and it’s like stumbling into a 1940s barrelhouse. 

Brenda Patterson’s rendering of “Memphis At Midnight” shows why she’s a solid favorite of Memphis blues aficionados.  

The Uptown Allstars a.k.a. Di Anne Price’s Boyfriends (Jim Spake, Tim Goodwin, Tom Lonardo) are featured on Di Anne’s seven album releases via LocoBop.

Go to tracks:  PIG MEAT by DI ANNE PRICE, SHE'S GONE by EDDIE COTTON, and I’LL BE A GOOD BOY by RUFUS THOMAS.
