Boo Boo Davis/BLu ACiD song used in Canadian movie

If You Ain’t Never Had The Blues by Boo Boo Davis / BLu ACiD (2014) was used in THE RECALL, a Canadian movie produced by Minds Eye Entertainment in association with Bridgegate Pictures.

The Recall is a SciFi thriller about five friends on vacation at a remote lake house where they expect nothing less than a good time, unaware that planet Earth is under an alien invasion and mass-abduction.

The film was released on June 2 this year and they used more then two minutes of the song right at the beginning in one of the opening scenes of the movie.

interview Boo Boo Davis with David Baerst (France)

here is the complete text of an interview Boo Boo Davis did wiht David Baerst last month before his show in Strasbourg (France):

Nda : Quelques jours avant l’entretien qui suit, Jan Mittendorp (le manager de Boo Boo Davis) m’a gentiment prévenu. Interviewer ce bluesman du Mississippi n’est pas une chose aisée, c’est une véritable aventure dont on ne peut jamais connaitre l’issue à l’avance. L’artiste ne suit pas règle précise et peut répondre par un sujet tout autre que celui sur lequel on l’a questionné.C’est donc avec une certaine appréhension que je me suis rendu à notre rendez-vous…
Là, je me suis retrouvé face à un être charmant, doté d’un grand sens de l’humour bien que marqué par de profondes stigmates, inhérentes à une existence pour le moins difficile. D’emblée, le bonhomme m’avertit lui aussi : « ce ne sera pas facile pour toi, je ne parle pas anglais…je m’exprime dans le langage des bluesmen du delta, un « dialecte » que seuls les gens tels que moi peuvent saisir ». Chose parfaitement compréhensible, tant la vie de cet artiste né en 1943, semble éloignée de celle que nous pouvons connaitre, aujourd’hui, en Europe. Travaillant dès son plus jeune âge dans les champs de coton, il a souffert de la ségrégation raciale et s’est réfugié dans la religion ainsi que dans la musique. Harmoniciste dès l’âge de 5 ans à l’église, puis guitariste et batteur se produisant au sein du groupe familial Lard Can Band (nommé ainsi car, ne pouvant se permettre d’acheter une batterie complète, le jeune homme s’exerçait sur des seaux métalliques contenant de la graisse de porc), Boo Boo s’est lancé dans une carrière d’accompagnateur avant d’être repéré par le fondateur du label Black & Tan. Depuis, il a signé (en tant que chanteur-harmoniciste) une bonne douzaine d’albums qui rendent grâce à son immense talent.
Quelques heures après notre entretien, sur scène, Boo Boo Davis a démontré à l’occasion d’un impressionnant concert qu’il était l’un des derniers représentants du blues originel…un diamant d’une rare pureté…

Boo Boo Davis live review / Passau (Germany) last week

Wow – so wenig braucht es, um Delta-Blues in maximaler Intensität zu spielen, denkt man zu Beginn des Konzerts, auf das Bluesfans schon lange hingefiebert haben. Als einer der letzten Überlebenden der Ursprünge des Mississippi-Blues wird der 73-jährige Boo Boo Davis angekündigt. Und auch die Niederlande bringen Deltafeeling hervor, wie Blues-Gitarrist Jan Mittendorp und Schlagzeuger John Gerritse beweisen. Mittendorp ist ein Meister des Grooves, beherrscht in stoischer Gelassenheit markige Bassläufe, zwischen die er melodische Akkorde setzt. Jede Nummer erhält ein um wenige Maschen abgeändertes Bassmuster, für Boo Boo Davis stets das genau Richtige. Davis verbindet Gesang und Harmonikaspiel reibungslos und geschickt Akzente setzend. Seine Stimme bietet er in zwei Lagen an, mal gepresst, mal unverhohlen klagend. Auch die lautere Variante behält durchwegs einen geerdeten Grundton. Ohne je am Mississippi-Delta gewesen zu sein, wo Davis aufgewachsen ist, glaubt man: So singt nur, wer von dort kommt. Nach jedem Stück dankt Davis erst dem Publikum, dann – gen Himmel schauend – “Dave”, seinem guten Geist . . .

review Boo Boo Davis from Italy

Prendete un locale sperduto nel Nord dell’Olanda, infilateci un pubblico partecipe (cosa ormai rara) e un trio che suona un blues sincero e che gli piace farlo. Risultato? Un onesto disco di blues che ti viene vo- glia di riascoltare immaginando di poter essere stato tra i fortu- nati presenti. Questo trio è capitanato da Boo Boo Davis, un mississippiano DOC, nato e cresciuto a Drew nel cuore del Delta, e questo lo si capisce alla prima battuta. Certo che aver avuto a casa propria personaggi come John Lee Hooker, Elmore James o Robert Pete Williams, intenti a suonare col proprio padre, non dev’essere un’esperienza da tutti i giorni e, forse, qualcosa di quelle magiche atmosfere deve per forza esserti rimasta dentro. Sia come sia questa magia emerge da questo “Live And Almost Unplugged” e ci rega- la una sana lezione di blues, dove quel che conta è quel che si dice e non quel che si fa. Lezione che dovrebbero imparare tutti coloro che si approcciano al blues come se fosse una competizione col diavolo o più semplicemente con gli altri “colleghi”. Partita persa prima che inizi, cari miei e il settantatreenne Boo Boo Davis ve lo può dimostrare. Un solo microfono al centro della sala del piccolo Cafe de Amer, il pubblico a due passi e il concerto ha inizio. Boo Boo con la sua armonica e voce è sostenuto da un ottimo Jan Mittendorp alla chitarra e da John Gerritse alla batteria. Non serve altro. Il loro blues fa tutto, dall’iniziale “Ice Storm” via via fino alla conclusiva “St. Louis Woman”, tutti brani scritti da questo trio. È difficile stabilire quale sia la miglior canzone, l’abilità di questi musicisti è quella di aver creato un tappeto sonoro capace di coinvolgere il pubblico olandese come l’ascoltatore a casa, portandolo con l’immaginazione nelle terre piatte del Mississippi dove le ombre al tramonto si allungano sui campi come fantasmi e al crocicchio gli alberi la notte si trasformano in diavoli tentatori. Allora, non esitate, fatevi ten- tare da Boo Boo Davis, qualcosa da insegnarvi lui ce l’ha.
