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.

ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis – Smokestack Lightnin ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis – Dust My Broom
Here are another couple of download singles for KuvVer Records, again featuring the Mississippi bluesman, singer and harmonica blower Boo Boo Davis. He is in excellent form on Howling Wolf’s classic, ‘Smokestack Lightnin’, taken at the same tempo but with a slightly different accompaniment (though not too far away from the familiar version). This has a ghostly echo-like sound in the background; for those who remember cassette tapes, it is a little like when the reverse side used to “bleed through”. Boo Boo’s vocal is of course first-class! Similar comments can be applied to the cover of the Elmore James classic. There’s no doubt that’s the original inspiration for this rendition, with Jan Mittendoorp broom-dusting away on electric guitar, though even more to the fore is Boo Boo’s excellent, wild blues harp playing, making for another wonderful recording.
It is the fifth track from a recording session that ElectroBluesSociety did with Mississippi blues man Boo Boo Davis in October 2018. Together they went back to the classic Chicago blues and here is another Howlin Wolf classic with a little ‘electrofication’
The track is released digital only and available on all stream and download platforms

ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis – Tell Me (KuvVer Records 605)
Mississippi born singer and drummer Boo Boo Davis goes back to his roots on this “digital single” from KuvVer Records. He used to sing this Howling Wolf song with The Davis Brothers Band when they played in a juke joint in Saint Louis. Maybe the tough vocal and wailing harmonica were more or less the same, even the loping rhythm, as the electronics are not really in evidence here, meaning that this is just a very fine, down-home blues performance. More please!
There is no better night of the year to return to Sweet Home Chicago than Christmas Eve, Xmas in Chi-town during the Reign of King Richard (Daley) the First (“Too ra loo ra loo ral…”) was a joyous fulcrum week at the bottom of the year filled with food, spirits, parties, singing, crying and fighting. Even now I can close my eyes and fill my sinuses with the heavenborn heat of clean steam rising from the boiled fresh meats which would then swirl and fight with the ancient greasy smoke of the grilled meats at every restaurant vent on the block as I cruised alleys on foot homeward from Maxwell Street on Christmas morning fingering the night’s haul and minding the curves, always minding the curves. Or was it Taylor Street? Too old to care now. Musical giants Jan Mittendorp and Jasper Mortier form ElectroBluesSociety and this week they have teamed with Mississippi bluesman Boo Boo Davis to revive another great song. This time it’s the Elmore James classic, “Dust My Broom,” Enjoy.
