Soulful, Southern Blues
So many great musicians have worked with Reddog and Friends, both live and in the studio. Donnie McCormick was the drummer, vocalist and treasured friend for many years in Atlanta, Georgia. He is dearly missed but here is a video of Donnie McCormick, Chris Long, Reddog and Wayne “Bear” Sauls. Both Donnie and Bear were former members of the Capricorn Record’s band Eric Quincy Tate.
“One realizes to what extent this album of a gifted guitarist is also that of a singer and composer of the first rank. “Down, Down, Down” where the Reddog guitar expresses all the juices of the South ( even evoking the Freddie King of the Shelter period).” Inside the Canyon
“Once one of the favorite performers in Underground Atlanta. Reddog held court on Monday nights at Blues Harbor during the 70’s and 80’s, fronting an ensemble that regularly included musicians who recorded with Capricorn Records and were major players in the Macon and Hotlanta music scenes.” Blues Blast Magazine
Lots of Soulful, Southern music got recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
Special thanks to Charles Holloman, John Gifford III and East Avalon Recorders.
My favorite ladies showed up to sing! The Southern Shoals Soul Singers: Carla Russell, Mary Mason and Angela Hacker.
What a pleasure to back in the recording studio with my favorite musicians!
