Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Shake Your Hips” by Slim Harpo


This record’s got it all! An insinuating groove that doesn’t quit…otherworldly vocals that spook and caress at the same time…laid bare stripped down production, and the stellar harp playing that gave Slim Harpo his surname. There’s good reason why ‘60s British Invasion groups like The Who, the Yardbirds, the Kinks and the Rolling Stones borrowed […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Take A Giant Step” by Taj Mahal


There is no rhyme or reason as to how I come up with the songs I choose to write about every day. They usually spring out of something I’ve been listening to or something I’ve read. So, if you regularly follow this column, you’ll get a pretty good idea of some of the stuff I […]

Music By The Letter On The 3D RadioActivity

As technology has diversified, posted letters have become less important as a routine form of communication; they however still remain but in a modified forms like email.  The development of the telegraph around 1792 shortened the time taken to send a letter by transferring the letter as an electrical signal between distant points, which is […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Burn In Hell” by Junior Kimbrough


Like his good friend R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough hailed from northern Mississippi and didn’t find fame until relatively late in the game. Kimbrough recorded sessions in the 1960s and 1970s that went mostly unreleased. It wasn’t until music critic Robert Palmer produced his first record for the Fat Possum label in 1992 that Kimbrough attained […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Snake Drive” by R.L. Burnside


Along with fellow musician Junior Kimbrough, R.L. Burnside didn’t see any fame until he was well into his ’70s. He spent much of his life living in poverty playing the blues in his native Holly Springs, Mississippi. It wasn’t until he was signed to the Mississippi independent Fat Possum record label in the early 1990s […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Had You Told It Like It Was (It Wouldn’t Be Like It Is)” by Albert King


Like Jimi Hendrix after him, Albert King had a unique guitar sound due to his playing of a right handed guitar upside down with his left hand. In King’s world, he was pushing up on the strings a righty would normally push down on. His style was an inspiration to the likes of Robert Cray, […]
