Mel Brown & The Homewreckers Under Yonder -Live At Pop The Gator '91 -2016

Under Yonder -
Live At Pop The Gator '91 

The tracks presented here were recorded during two shows in March 1991 and Denny Freeman, the Austin-based blues guitarist flew in for the gig with his old friend Mel Brown. Freeman and Mel had played together for years in the house band at that most famous of Austin blues institutions – Antones. With Mel and Denny are John Lee on keys, Leo Valvasori on bass and Randall Coryell on drums — the original members of the house band at Pop the Gator.

This is a recording of classic-electric blues. It fuses the old, musical traditions of mid-20th Century Mississippi, the soundtrack of Mel’s childhood in the Flowood section of Jackson, with electric guitars. This recording is a vivid, living reminder of the wonderful years (1989-1994) when music fans lined up outside Pop the Gator to see some of the greatest in blues, R&B and barrel house – Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Eddie “The Chief” Clearwater, Otis Clay, Etta James and Marcia Ball, among many others.

10/10 for sound quality   and 12/10 for the show!

Leo Valvassori - Bass
Randall Coryell - Drums
