Being a music junkie and working in radio during the '70s resulted in host Geoff Anderson amassing an extensive record collection that he has kept intact to this day. Join Geoff every Tuesday evening at 8pm.

At 8:30pm, during his weekly feature, "The Vinyl Vault,"  - Geoff shares a record from his collection that isn't in the KUVO library.

All Blues

Nov 4, 2016

We've got Blues of every shade & hue: electric, acoustic, vocal, and instrumental styles by all of your favorite legends and new up-and-comers.

The Blues is a feeling. It touches your soul. It goes to the core. The Blues will make you cry. The Blues will make you rage. The Blues can create great joy. It can make you dance. It can make you party. The Blues can turn you inside out. All shades. All hues. All Blues.

This week’s Vinyl Vault features a 1979 album by guitarist Robben Ford, “The Inside Story.” Ford was a veteran of both blues and fusion bands by the time he recorded this and the music draws heavily from both genres. As a teenager, he played in the straight ahead blues band, The Charles Ford Band with his brothers.

This week’s Vinyl Vault features Ben Sidran, “On the Live Side” which includes the hilarious “Good Travel Agent,” an extended riff on the three key things it takes to play jazz. Hint: the first two are a bad romance and a good travel agent. You’ll have to tune in to learn the third key ingredient.

This week on the Vinyl Vault, it’s a Duke Ellington album KUVO doesn’t have! Yes, strange, but true, it’s a hole in the KUVO library, but the Vinyl Vault has it and we’ll hear it tonight at 8:30 pm.
