Here’s The WRFG Route 66 Playlist for Sunday, February 28, 2021

This week, Route 66 pays a special tribute to Gene Taylor, a master boogie-woogie piano player and a founding member of The Blasters. Taylor froze to death in his home in North Austin, Texas on February 20, 2021. The home had been without power for five days. According to Taylor’s roommate, “we both stayed in our own beds trying to stay warm. I came out of it OK, and he obviously didn’t.”

Editorial Comment: Taylor’s death was one of more than 70 fatalities linked to a collapse of the Texas power grid after the state was hit by a winter storm. The grid collapse was a man-made disaster caused by the state’s short-sighted energy
policies and refusal to prepare for extreme weather events linked to climate change.

You’ll find songs by Taylor throughout the show.

Art Rupe Talks About Specialty Records And The R&B Scene In L.A. in 1949 -  Pop Chronicles

8:00 AM – A SURVEY OF SPECIALTY RECORDS
This morning, we’re taking a stroll through the catalog of Specialty Records,
one of the pioneering West Coast labels for jump blues, R&B, and gospel
from the mid-1940s to the early 1960s.

Boogie #1
The Sepia Tones
Juke Box Records 1944
Before there was Specialty there was Juke Box Records, a small independent label started by Ben Siegel and Art Rupe when decided to leave Atlas Records in 1944. Siegel and Rupe managed to release just one single in 1944, Boogie #1 by the Sepia Tones.

Kansas City Boogie
The Blues Man
Juke Box Records 1945

Voo-It! Voo-It!
The Blues Woman (Marian Abernathy)
Juke Box Records 1946
“Kansas City Boogie” and “Voo-It! Voo-It!” were the first big sellers for Juke Box Records.

Milton’s Boogie
Roy Milton & His Solid Senders
Juke Box Records 1946

R.M. Blues
Roy Milton & His Solid Senders
Juke Box Records 1946
Siegel and Rupe really struck gold when they signed Roy Milton. They released records by Milton simultaneously in 1946 and both shot straight up the Billboard and Cash Box R&B Charts. But as more and more of Juke Box’s releases were hitting the charts, there was trouble brewing in the front office. Rupe and Siegel added a new partner, Al Middleman in August of 1945 and my mid-1946, the partnership fell apart leaving Rupe with the label, which he renamed Specialty Records. You can learn more about Specialty Records and Art Rupe by following the links in the resource section below.
