Lowell Fulson & Lloyd Glenn have today’s almost forgotten track

a little blues for you today, featuring a song that’s been covered successfully by dozens, without most remembering where it came from…here’s the man, Lowell Fulson, performing his classic in Los Angeles in 1984…I can’t remember how many times I’ve heard this song performed by others, live or, as in the case of Eric Clapton, on record. Lowell recorded for Checker, a label that was owned, not surprisingly, by the same people who owned Chess…and, just for the record, the Chess Brothers also had a “pop” label called Cadet. A lot of great stuff came out of that studio on South Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.author of ‘Today’s Almost Forgotten Track’
