I haven't heard any other albums by them, but this one is smoking. You get 7 minutes of blues healing with upbeat harp and guitar jams in "I Don't Want You To Be My Girl," and another 7 minutes in "Hush, Hush," hee hee hee. Not that "Leavin'" should be overlooked because it is only 3 minutes long - that song smokes too. Yep, this is a good CD to help forget some woman. The CD ends with the best version of "Got My Mojo Working" that I have ever heard.

A great live album by a fun and talented band, luckily brought back together and recorded. Jim Schwall and Corky Seigel front a talented and honest band that puts out down home music the way it's supposed to be played.

I really enjoyed the clear, cool sounds produced at this 1987 reunion of the Chicago Blues band. It was thirteen years since they broke up and it was great to see this reunion. They still had the richness of sound and easy-going style that was steeped in inspiration from some of the greatest blues musicians of the genre.

Corky Siegel and Jim Schwall first met in 1964 while members of their college jazz band. When the pair discovered their mutual interest in the blues, they started playing as a duo in local Chicago night clubs like Pepper’s and The Quiet Knight. Corky was adept at the piano and Jim had developed a distinctive, clear sound on the electric acoustic guitar. They worked hard to cultivate vocal abilities, and Corky threw himself into the development of one of the all-time greatest harmonica sounds. At the advice of the clubs’ managers, they expanded to a four piece band with the addition of a drummer and bassist. They switched those positions around until 1969 when Rollo Radford became a regular fixture on the bass. Rollo had experience playing for the famed Dinah Washington and then Martha and the Vandellas. Sam Lay became their regular drummer/vocalist. Sam had a plethora of work experience having played with the Thunderbirds, Willie Dixon, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, as well as Bob Dylan. The band produced several more albums and toured the U.S. and Europe before breaking up in 1974.

We are fortunate that the band reunited for the celebration of Chicago’s WXRT’s 15th anniversary. It was recognition that Siegel-Schwall was the first band to receive a live broadcast from the station. We are also lucky that Corky and Jim each have their clear, pure voices – voices that appear to be full of both youth and wisdom.

I was surprised to find that outside of the midwest, a lot of folks have never heard of Corky Siegel (of the Siegel-Schwall Blues Band). That's a crime. Corky's one of the truly great masters of the blues harmonica.

On this album, you'll hear him in a traditional blues context - where he excels - but if you really want to be blown away, check out his work on 'Street Music' with William Russo. Here's the link to the CD: Russo: Street Music; Gershwin: An American in Paris and it's available from Amazon as an MP3 download as well. Check out Corky's playing on "Three Pieces for Blues Band & Symphony Orchestra".
