On this Tuesday's edition of That Righteous Jive we'll be listening to some of my favorite blues-rock bands. We'll start off with The Black Keys--a band at the head of the soul/blues revival--from their 2008 album Attack and Release. Then we'll hear from The White Stripes, off of their debut self-titled album. After that I'll be featuring The Word, an instrumental blues-rock super group formed between organist John Medeski (of Medeski Martin and Wood fame), pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph, and all three members of North Mississippi Allstars. We'll be hearing from their self-titled debut album. Though there are a few original tracks on the album, it is mostly composed of covers of old gospel songs (but I can guarantee you've never heard any gospel songs performed like this before!). After that we'll hear from the Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation. Of all the British rock groups that started pumping out new renditions of old blues songs in the 60's/70's, the Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation has to be my favorite. We'll check out some tracks off the last album they released before splitting up, Remains To Be Heard. Last, but not least, we'll be listening to The Dead Weather, another blues-rock super group, this time between Jack White, Alison Mosshart (of The Kills), Dean Fertita (of Queens of the Stone Age), and Jack Lawrence (of The Greenhornes). Out of all of Jack White's projects I definitely dig this one the most. Fingers crossed that they'll soon reunite to release a third studio album. We'll be hearing from the last album they released (back in 2010) Sea of Cowards. Check it out this Tuesday (05/21) 5-6pm CTZ right here on KRUU radio.
