Encore (Pre-Order)Encore, the highly anticipated new album from acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Anderson East, is set for release via Elektra Records.
Encore was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio along with additional production at House of Blues and Farmland Studio. The album features eleven songs, including "All On My Mind" (written by Ed Sheeran, Johnny McDaid, East and Aaron Raitiere), "King For A Day" (written by East, Chris Stapleton and Morgane Stapleton), "Girlfriend" (written by East, Cobb, Raitiere and Tim Bergling) as well as renditions of songs by Ted Hawkins and Willie Nelson.
The release of Encore culminates a breakout series of years for East following his widely praised debut album, Delilah, which NPR Music called "an eclectic, fully formed debut " Additional critical praise included The Wall Street Journal who described, " highlighted by Mr. East's raw and raspy vocals and a backing band that channels the urgent rhythms and gospel-flavored sounds of '60s R&B and Southern soul music," while American Songwriter asserted, "New artist debuts don't come with much more industry buzz than the first release from singer/songwriter Anderson East For better or worse, that sets expectations higher than those of most new artists. Thankfully, East meets them in 10 tracks and 33 minutes."1. King For A Day

Be Kind To A Man When He's DownDrawing from the vast spectrum of traditional American country and blues music from the 1920s and early '30s, Eden & Johns East River String Band (Eden Brower & John Heneghan) create some of the most authentic sounding renditions of these songs today.
Their fourth release, Be Kind To A Man When He's Down, contains songs from Frank Stokes, Pink Anderson, Big Chief Henry's String Band and many more. It features special guests Robert Crumb (underground comic legend, Cheap Suit Serenaders) on mandolin, Dom Flemons (Carolina Chocolate Drops) on guitar and old-time music legend Pat Conte (Canebreak Rattlers, Otis Brothers) on fiddle, banjo, guitar, harmonica and vocals. It features an amazing cover by Crumb as did their last two records, Drunken Barrel House Blues and Some Cold Rainy Day.
Eden and John's East River String Band cover black country blues from the 78-rpm era with crisp fervor and a natural flair that suggests loving study and a respect for the hard lives and flight for joy on the original records. - David Fricke/Rolling Stone1. Gonna Tip Out Tonight

Rough Guide To The Blues SongstersBefore there was the bluesman there was the songster and it was these traveling troubadours who helped lay the foundations for the development of the blues. In the decades preceding the phonograph and radio and before the American national entertainment industry had reached into the deepest parts of the South, it was these wandering musicians who provided the musical entertainment for all manner of social events.
In order to be able to scrape a living together, the songster had to be incredibly versatile and come up with something for everyone. Armed with a banjo or guitar they performed every form of popular music of the day from folk songs and ballads to rags and spirituals. Priding themselves on their huge repertoires, they could be described as the human jukeboxes of their time.
Along with the many musicians shrouded in mystery, this collection boasts tracks by legendary bluesmen such as Leadbelly, Charley Patton, and Mississippi John Hurt. Aside from the blues, these great performers would have been able to play everything asked of them at local bars and rural dances, and it is said that Leadbelly could draw on a repertoire of over 500 songs from many different genres. Likewise, the 'Father of the Delta Blues', Charley Patton left glimpses into his songster roots and true musical versatility with songs such as the featured 'Mississippi Boweavil Blues'. Henry Thomas's projected birthdate of 1874 predates that of Charley Patton by a good 17 years and gives us an idea of what rural black music sounded like before the turn of the twentieth century. He was 53 years old during his first recording session in 1927 by which point much of his music was already a representation of a bygone era. The same could be said of Richard 'Rabbit' Brown from New Orleans who worked as a ferryman on lake Pontchartrain and whose recorded legacy of just five songs includes 'James Alley Blues' which has been covered by Bob Dylan. Also from New Orleans, Papa Charlie Jackson accompanied himself with a banjo guitar and became one of the first songsters to record from the mid-1920s. His unique brand of hokum, used comic, often sexually suggestive lyrics and lively, danceable rhythms.
This selection features several variations on traditional ballads about legendary characters such as Frankie and Johnny, Stagger Lee, John Henry and Railroad Bill. These became standards in the repertoires of songsters, both black and white, who shared a similar colour-blindness when it came to the racial origins of a tune. Frank Hutchison and Dick Justice were both white performers whose styles were heavily influenced by black musicians, in particular, Luke Jordan whose featured track 'Pick Poor Robin Clean' is a gambling song masterpiece. Like Jordan, many other well-known East Coast songsters such as Blind Blake, Pink Anderson, and Peg Leg Howell worked with traveling shows, which became a major factor in the spreading of the blues. Many of these shows were operated by vendors of patent medicines who would attract crowds by putting on a performance.
As these shows began to disappear and recorded music and dancing in juke joints became popular, so the older songster style became less fashionable. Apart from the few waxed recordings which leave a tempting glance into a world before the blues, many of the featured artists faded into obscurity, as the songsters were overtaken by blues singers whose music was heavily promoted by record companies. Those songsters who were able to embrace this new music such as Charley Patton and Leadbelly became seminal figures and the rest is history.1. Pick Poor Robin Clean - By Luke Jordan
