Mark Hummel - Retro Active

CD Information

Mark Hummel has long been a major force in shaping and defining West Coast Blues and is now back with a truly stellar 16 track blues collection featuring not only his own dynamic harp & vocal work, but also the talents of his special guests Charlie Musselwhite, Steve Freund & Rusty Zinn. After hearing Retroactive British blues legend John Mayall raved "The spirit of Little Walter lives on!" If you miss the sound of those great early Chess Records, this one's for you. Mark blows harp like no one else I know, plus plenty of tasty guitar from Rusty Zinn keeps the grooves sizzling'. Retro-Active seems destined to become of the years most talked about Blues CDs.

Artist Video

MARK HUMMEL @ Green Parrot - Key West (09:51)
Mark Hummel & the Blues Survivors perform a crowd-pleaser at the Green Parrot in Key West, FL. 5/17/2007 This song has a long history of pleasing crowds. The riff is most often attributed to Bo Diddley. Various recordings abound of "Willie and The Hand Jive." Myself, I relate this to the Rolling Stones. "Not Fade Away" was originally recorded in 1957 by Buddy Holly & the Crickets, released as a B-side to "Oh, Boy!" In 1964, the Stones' cover became their first U.S. single. Others have covered the song over the years. The Grateful Dead reportedly played it over 500 times in concert over the years. Most recently, Sheryl Crow covered the song for a hair color commercial that ran during Super Bowl 2007.
