Gatemouth (1924-2005) & Burnside (1926-2005)

Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown - Street Corner (1977)
Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown - Chickenshift (1977)
R.L. Burnside - Shake, Little Baby (1980)

Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown (pictured) passed away recently, as did R.L. Burnside. Burnside's passing happened awhile ago and has been covered by a number of blogs. It's Magic! would've featured a post awhile back, but Burnside has never been a personal favorite, and as for the recently passed Brown--well, he just started to grace the collection. I do know that, before he passed, Brown was living in New Orleans and evacuated to Texas to live with family.

Both deserve (at the very least) an in memoriam post. The two tracks from Gatemouth are off an album called Blackjack (1977--both are smokin'!) and the track from Burnside is off of Sound Machine Groove (1980). If you know of a blog that has posted on these two legends, drop a line in the comments section and they'll be placed into the main post. Enjoy.
