A new single from the experimental electro blues duo and this time it is a new and original song.
ElectroBluesSociety; two guys and a bunch of junk with a broad taste and an open mind mixing the old with the new. Modern technologies combined with 30+ years of live stage experience in the European blues / roots music scene. The musical input ranges from Alan Lomax to Roxy Music and from Charlie Parker to Led Zeppelin. Since September 2017 they have performed live in Holland, Belgium and Germany.
This new track is released digital only and available on all the download and streaming platforms. Here are the links to a few popular ones:

We made these recordings with Burton Gaar in 1997 and since Black and Tan Records didn’t exist at that time we licensed them to CrossCut Records. Now is the time to release them on our own label. Besides Burton on vocals and bass the recordings feature Roel Spanjers on keyboards, Frank Bolder on drums and myself on guitar.
The tall Louisiana blues man Burton Gaar started playing bass guitar at age fourteen and at age eighteen Burton started singing on stage. As a young man, Burton was invited to join Slim Harpo’s band as a bass player. In the 60’s Burton and his band (Boogie Kings) were very active in the Louisiana R&B circuit. As the 70’s Burton was forced to take a normal day job for a year. After this experience he was determined to be self supporting as a musician. He joined the band of Rockin’ Sidney and he managed to make ends meet by either backing-up this zydeco superstar or playing with his own band. After recording his first CD “Still Singing The Blues” for Lanor Records Burton became firmly resolved to pursue his number one goal; making a name for himself.He did a few European tours during which he performed in Holland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Norway. Burton passed away in 2011 after a brief battle with cancer.
This single is a little appetizer for the upcoming Boo Boo Davis album. After a string of single releases of famous blues covers on KuvVer Recors it’s now time again for Boo Boo to release a new and ‘all original’ album. Like most of the previous recordings with Boo Boo we captured everything live in one room without any overdubs. Ten brand new songs and one new version from a song that was released earlier in 2002. The title of the upcoming album is TREE MAN and it will be out on Black and Tan Records later this month just before Boo Boo’s upcoming European tour in March 2019.
Will be released officially in a few weeks but you can already order your copy now and we will ship as soon as they get in.

It is the second track from the recording session that ElectroBluesSociety did in October with Mississippi blues man Boo Boo Davis. Another classic Howlin Wolf song with a little ‘electrofication’. This song was another regular in the Davis Brothers Band repertoire in the 60’s and 70’s.

For this recording session ElectroBluesSociety went back to basics and teamed up with Mississippi blues man Boo Boo Davis. Together they revisited classic Chicago blues. For Boo Boo this was also a trip down to memory lane all these songs were regulars in the Davis Brothers Band repertoire during the 18 years that they were the weekend house band in Tabby’s Red Room, a famous juke joint in East St Louis.
They recorded seven songs and they will be released as individual singles during the coming months. We start of with a classic Howlin Wolf song.
There are a few ways to do a cover version of a well known song. David Philips really enjoys taking the song to another genre completely, changing the feel and context of the song. It’s a fun game to play and can yield some surprising results. Another way he likes is to stay a little more true to the original but strip it down to the bare bones i.e. acoustic guitar and voice. A combination of these ideas is what these recordings are about. Freedom (Wham / George Michael) and Heart Of Glass (Blondie) are upbeat 80s pop hits turned back porch, country blues style numbers. (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay and Hit The Road Jack are songs he has always enjoyed a lot and this is his attempt to strip them down and add whatever of himself he can in to the mix without ruining the original feel. It’s a fine line we walk when covering classics and some say it shouldn’t be done, but David sees it as a fun musical challenge that requires a different type of musical kung fu than when performing his own original songs.
