Thanks Marty, It’s great to be here on Arkansas Roots with a song from KASU Bluesday Tuesday.
Reba Russell was definitely a favorite with the Bluesday Tuesday audience and one of my favorites as well. When she was booked for November 13, 2012, she was glad to come and play but she wanted someone on sound so I got recruited. I ran my recording deck and the mix board which isn’t as hard as it sounds when the band is as good as the Reba Russell Band.
They played great and I got many good recordings. I’m playing some fantastic contemporary R&B on Something Blue this Saturday so I picked “At Last”, the Etta James classic. A great song and a great performance from Reba Russell, here she is now singing “At Last”.
And that’s the Reba Russell Band playing “At Last” recorded at KASU Bluesday Tuesday in Newport, Arkansas, on November 13, 2012.
