Hailing from the outskirts of the Motor City, Dirty Basement Blues is a band comprised of 5 guys who are as hard working and gritty as the town they represent. The group was initially formed in late 2011 by drummer Mike Conley and guitarist Joe Stanley after teaming up for a studio project to record some of Stanley's new tunes. The two had played together in another project together for nearly ten years, and they were eager to embark on a new musical adventure…
Popa Chubby plays loud blues-rock, plain and simple. The songs on this 1999 outing are almost all originals from his pen, with Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long" and Jimi Hendrix's "The Wind Cries Mary" being the only covers aboard…..

This band has an attitude - a BLUES ATTITUDE.Hailing from Olympia Washington, BLUES ATTITUDE perform a raucous, style of blues that combines traditional blues, classic rock and new country resulting in an highly entertaining and very danceable style that goes afar from the typical “blues-rock” sound. BLUES ATTITUDE has been hosting a weekly blues jam in Olympia for over 3 years as well as performing throughout the south sound area…….
The addition of bass and special guests Left Hand Frank and Lefty Dizz only distract from the chemistry between Cub and the Houserockers (even more obvious on their belated live follow-up), but this is a strong session, with the ex-stadium boogie boy sounding totally at home with these blues veterans. His vocal duet with Brewer Phillips on J.B. Lenoir's "Talk to Your Daughter" is a joy, and thankfully not every note is perfectly in place — or in the case of Brewer's guitar, in tune. Added treats: Koda's big-toned harp on "Rockin' This Joint Tonight" and humorous dialog with Frank on "Dirty Duck Blues."
Preserving newly written Bob Dylan songs for copyright is the reason why the Band's Garth Hudson rolled tape at Big Pink but The Basement Tapes were something much more than songwriting demos. Greil Marcus dubbed it a celebration of the "Old, Weird America" in his 1997 book Invisible Republic, connecting these songs to Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music, adding an extra layer of myth to tapes that were shrouded in mystery from the moment bootlegs started to circulate. The Basement Tapes Complete strengthens portions of that legend while simultaneously puncturing it. Certainly, the six-disc box – its first five discs assembled according to Hudson's numbering system, with the sixth disc collecting sessions discovered later – feels substantially different from the LP released in 1975, where the overall picture was distorted by Robbie Robertson adding sometimes significant overdubs and including Band recordings that weren't cut during those seven months in 1967.
