(2018/Ruf Records) 12 tracks - Starting the blues calendar with a bang in January 2018, Let It Go feels like a homecoming. After all, this latest studio album sees Bernard return to Ruf Records: the iconic German label that was created in 1994 to serve as a home for his father, the much-missed Chicago heavyweight, Luther Allison. Just as significant, Let It Go also found Bernard recording in the birthplace of the blues – Tennessee – and returns his sound to ist raw fundamentals, on 12 songs that hold up without embellishment. Let It Go was recorded at Bessie Blue Studio, Stantonville, Tennessee, with legendary music producer Jim Gaines, recalls Bernard. We made the decision to not flood the CD with keyboards or horns, to go back to the true basic rhythm section sound – and to show more mature songwriting.

(Collector´s Choice) 13 tracks - rare transcriptions from 1944 to 1955 (including her last performance at the Jimmy Durante TV Show) - In listening to the radio and television performances that comprise this release, one does not see Miranda´s wild getups, her famed hats or her dancing. The focus is on her excellent vocal abilities, her warm voice and her knack for singing rapid lyrics. Among the highpoints are Tico Tico, I Made My Money With Bananas and a version of Chattanooga Choo Choo in Spanish that serves as a worthy tribute to the great Carmen Miranda. (Scott Yanow)
Taschenbuch - 268 pages - Nova Books Nashville - Revised. edition - Englisch This book continues the story of a North Carolina country boy, who tried to serve his country in war-time and wanted to play on The Grand Ole Opry. While in the Navy, he suffered a nervous breakdown after being gassed, but overcame adversity to realize his dream of playing steel guitar with six of the big-gest Opry stars. He married a Nashville native, who worked inside the industry, including radio, record labels, music publishing, side-by-side with notables like Porter Wagoner on Music Row, and authoring several music books.Theirs is a true story of the mu-sic scene, then and now, touching the lives of numer-ous country stars, their sidemen, and session play-ers, and sharing their lives and road stories while traveling every highway out of Nashville. Because I have been a ´´sideman´´ and a slightly well-known person, I find How-ard White´s book to be very interesting. A lot of so-called stars have written their biographies, but I don´t remember any significant books written by accompany-ing musicians. I think it will be welcomed by interested people, because of this different perspective. I met Howard when he first arrived in Nashville, around 1951. We have shared many laughs and good times, and he has more friends than anyone I know. I am proud to be among them. Chet Atkins My friend, Howard White, has written this book of stories and tales that have happened to him and his friends along the way. I have a feeling that you might find them interesting. I suggest you read the book. Eddy Arnold The highway goes on forever. In Ruth White´s engrossing new book, Nashville is a place where real people succeeded and failed and overcame, all for the sake of a dream machine called the music business. 7141e4 Michael Streissguth author: ´´Johnny Cash, The Biography´´
