Bull Halsey

“One listen to Bull Halsey throws the rock-n-roll mind into reverse, to a time when young British kids like The Yardbirds, The Animals, and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers were teaching other Brits (and Americans) how much the Delta blues had an impact on rock music. This isn’t today’s disposable garage-rock re-hash, this is a textbook from Music Appreciation, and class is in session.”

“…next song up is another hold over request from last week, called the Guv’ness. A man calls after the song ends. He wants me to play it again. I say will do. He says now. I say next week. He huffs and asks, “would you call it Rockabilly, Blues, or Rockabilly-Blues?” And as I wondered what button to push next he said, “It’s just real music and that’s why you should play it now.”
