Oriental death
These "throwing stars" are oriental weapons which are unlawful to possess
but not to sell. They have become the current fad among some

schoolchildren who don't realize that they can be arrested and possibly
jailed.

i the past si* years the blues has had a resurgence in, of
all,places, Texas. Groups such as the Fabulous Thunderbir-
ds, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, Anson Funder-
burgh & the Rockets, and now Ronnie Earl & the Broad-
casters are playing the blues like they were born in Chicago.
14ere's a case when you can judge an album by its jacket.
Cigarettes, some with lipstick traces, smoldering in an
ashtray. Glasses full of Johnny Walker on the rocks. A deck
of 'naked-lady playing cards. A woman's red nail-polished
bej weled hand. A negligee dropped in the corner., A color
pfioto of Earl hard at work-pompadour, shades, goatee, and
a cigarette-hunched over his guitar. This guy looks like he
can play.
It was Kim Wilson's name on the Broadcasters jacket that
caught my eye. Anything he'd lend his considerable talents to
was worth a try and I wasn't disappointed. Wilson plays
harmonica/harp in the Thunderbirds along with current
drummer and ex-Ann Arborite Fran Christine (in the early
1970s Fran played drums in The Boogie Brothers with Steve
Nardella and in The Vipers with Nardella and George
Bedard).
Side A starts and finishes with an instrumental. The latter,
"Baby Doll Blues," is a contemplative, lean number. If
you've got troubles in which you'd fike to wallow, this is your
cut. The preceding song was written by Clarence
"Gatemouth" Brown, a Texas guitarist, and features boogie
woogie style piano. All four cuts are tight numbers that
feature Earl's guitar but, alas, no harp playing.
Side B starts with "Ridin' in the Moonlight," by Howlin'
Wolf. Wilson's harp opens the tune. This is more like it! Basic

no frills blues-bass, drums, guitar, and harp. Just as you're
recovering from this, you are hit with "My Home is a
Prison," again featuring Wilson's harp and vocals in-
terestingly done in slight echo. Now you know why decent up-
standing folks have always disdained the blues with its
driving, slow, copulating rhythm. This ain't Huey Lewis
harmonica, this is earthy southside Chicago harp playing.
The next number sounds Fats Domino-inspired with, some
tasty piano. "I'll Take Care of You" is reminiscent of early
James Brown with a great saxophone solo right out of a 1950s
detective movie. This side closes with a Freddie King stan-
dard, "San Ho Zay," here an uninspired instrumental. Side B
is more interesting from a pure blues standpoint although it
closes weakly.
The album and band show good range in the blues/rhythm
and blues spectrum. They have a tight sound and, although
Earl is the bands' leader, they blend well together as a unit.
Earl does get a chance to stand out especially on
"Gatemouth" Brown's "She Winker Her Eye." and "Baby
Doll Blues."
The band consists of: Earl on guitar, Michael "Mudcat"
Ward on bass, John Rossi on drums, Kim Wilson and Sugar
Ray on vocals and harmonicas, and three, sax players and
two keyboardists.
If you like this, I recommend any of the other Texas artists
mentioned, as well as Slim Harpo, The Nighthawks, and
Muddy Waters.
There's such a dearth of blues being played and recorded
these days that the songs highlighted alone are worth the
price of the album. - Leslie Pettis
