Snooks eaglin - blues from new orleans vol. 2 - Snooks Eaglin | Biography, Albums, Streaming Links - AllMusic


Just about all the artists featured on this program have passed, so it's not often I do tributes of that kind anymore. Lately the notable passings have been the early generation of blues historians, writers, scholars, label owners, producers and promoters who added immeasurably to our knowledge of the blues. We have lost several such men recently including Mack McCormick and Steve LaVere who I paid tribute to last year. This time out we pay tribute to two more, Tony Standish who passed  December 17th of last year and belatedly, George Paulus who passed on November 14, 2014. I never had any interaction with either men, but their recordings on their respective labels were certainly and influence on me and have been featured on several past programs.

This file includes lists about bays , bayous , beaches , creeks and streams , drowning , ice and melting , islands , lakes , ponds and pools , rivers , sand , seas and oceans , ships and boats , surfing , swimming , the tide , water , waterfalls , and wells .

Eaglin burst on to the international folk scene in the early 1960s with a handful of astonishing albums, drawn from tape recordings made by the folklorist Harry Oster and issued on folk "documentary" labels like Folkways, Folk-Lyric and Heritage. They revealed him as a kind of human jukebox, dispensing blues, country music, gospel songs, hits from the recent R&B charts, jazz standards and even exotica, all played in rich, orchestral arrangements for six- or 12-string guitar and sung in a husky voice seamed with emotion.
