It's Time For A Break

Don't panic, just a short break of maybe a few weeks to sort some stuff regarding the Boogiewoody mansion plus other matters. I thought it would be fair to announce my temporary absence in advance this time as I can imagine the constant disappointment of R&B and Jazz starved fans dropping by to find neither fresh music nor newly uncovered arcane info posted on the blog.

There's a queue of "new" records to be processed (ebay auctions, yay!) plus Marv has been sending material but at the moment I'm just not in a position to do any blog work so it's "au revoir" but certainly not "adieu" from Be Bop Wino.

In the meantime I recommend that boogsters get a regular ration of blues 'n' rhythm from Matt The Cat's excellent "Juke In The Back" podcast. He's currently on week 5 of a King Records retrospective, so get yourself over to:

Check out Matt's archives for a massive treasure trove of jumpin' R&B and enjoy listening!

Until we meet again in the very near future, keep a rockin'!

So as Ben E King would say, it's Auf Wiedersehen ... hope all goes well.

Thank you, BW -- good luck, looking forward to seeing you back again. Maybe my new, improved speakers will have arrived by then. Meanwhile, now hooked on

Gee, boogster, you coulda at least "embellished" it a bit more... With maybe something a bit more summer time fun-like...

Like: "I'm off to my private Caribbean Island for a few weeks of R and R..... And maybe I will bring along some R and B..."

Whatever it is you do...

Be safe, be happy, behave.
And if you can't be good, be careful.

Smooth sailing to you & yours!
