The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 64

Legends Mix

In today's mixed bag of goodies the stories are as varied as the music is. You'll get the child prodigy sensation of the mid-forties but also artists who were in their mid-forties or fifties when they recorded the song I play. You'll get one of the earliest Decca Rhythm & Blues records and one of four songs of Ray Charles that he recorded in Miami, after his succesful time in Seattle with Swing Time records, and before he signed with Atlantic. Blues that have been overlooked and long-time forgotten until the on-line music services re-released them - as soundfiles.
