Burnside Album Details
Omar and the Howlers, Blues Bag
Blues Bag was originally released in 1991 as an acoustic session of tracks featuring Omar Dykes on vocals and acoustic guitar and his good friend, Fingers Taylor, on harp. Several tracks are just Omar and Fingers playing classic blues. Omar decided to bring in the Howlers on a few tracks to give the album additional depth. Gene Brandon, an original Howler drummer, recently passed away. Bruce Jones on bass still plays with Omar today. Omar himself plays harp on Big Chief Pontiac. Many of the songs are some of Omar’s favorite tracks from his entire career in the music industry. This cd is being released again as a tribute to Gene Brandon.
