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'!
Do what you gotta do, take care, and (we hope) hurry back.
Enjoy your break BW and stay safe. We'll miss you and look forward to your return.
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 http://www.jukeintheback.org/
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!
Enjoy your well-deserved break!
Here we are in October. I do hope all is well with you. I do miss the blog. However with all that's been going on I am really hoping you are OK. Take care!
A break of"a few weeks" turned into a few months. I'm fine thanks, though probably beginning to get lockdown fever. There's been some re-up requests plus a few interesting emails and comments so I'll try to get the show on the road again this weekend.
Not looking for music, just here to say we miss you!
I'll keep checking hoping you can manage to get back in the groove-as others have already stated we miss you and the authoritative notes regarding the music
There must be a lot of action on that little island! Hope you'll be back someday. Either way, thanks for sharing such fine music.
Hey, I guess you’ve decided to retire. So thanks for all the great stuff you’ve shared here - must have been a whole load of work. Have a happy rest of your life
I'll be back! Sometime ...
The Waverley and Wee Cumbrae in the background. Nice one!
Well spotted, Greenockian!

Good to hear! I was beginning to question the "Don't panic" message.
Hope you get this message BW...Just want to wish you a Merry Xmas, stay safe. Looking forward to your return.
Hope all is well with you this new year. I check to see if you're back at the old turntable again, and I hope to see you again. Stay safe and enjoy your break.
Hoping for a return soon. Checking daily. Hope all is well
What Gino said.
Getting a little concerned, actually.. That "few weeks" is now nearly a year.. Maybe, if you can.. post a comment that all is OK?
Short break... What do you consider a long break? :-)
You OK BW? Long long time no see, no hear...hope the damn virus hasn't got ya. Anyway, if you read the messages we hope you are well and will be returning soon.
Will add myself to the list of well wishers- hope all is ok. Just wanted to say thank you! I came across this blog a while back last year looking for a Lightnin' Slim album and finally have gone through all of it. Not all the links work but all the mega ones still do so I still got a treasure trove of new names and things I've been missing from my favorites. So thank you for your hard work from a young musician that loves the hell out of this stuff!
I hope all is well BW. You are missed! Thanks for all of your previous efforts.
Happy Anniversary! It's been a year, Woody. Still hoping that you're OK. Please let us know.
How soon is now? Guess no more boogie woogie from boogiewoody then?
Long time no see. Hope you are fine!
Reckon the old boy has snuffed it and is now looking down on us from above.
I hope that you are well Boogiewoody. We miss you!!
My favorite music, my favorite blog.... I still miss it
Hope all is well. Miss this
site and your contributions!

Seems to me to be most unlikely there will be any return to activity hereupon. So let us give thanks for that which has been posted and the hard work that went into it. Whatever the reason for the silence I'm sure there must be something serious behind it.
Ah'm no deid yet! Apologies to everyone especially my collaborators. I just totally lost the taste for music and a few weeks rest has turned into ... er, how long? I've had the dreaded Covid but have recovered and who knows, I may well be back. Keep on chuggin'
Any news is good gnus boogiewoody . . . there are many here who await with baited breath and keen anticipation in hope of your will return. But whatever your decision, it is good to know you are still among us and have recovered from the dreaded Covid. May your health continue to be good and may your interest in music return. Cheers.
Good to read you're ok. I've wondered for awhile why the silence. Always enjoyed your blog, altho' i got the impression it was very time consuming to compile.It was good while it lasted, but hey ho, all the best for the future. Atb, Jeunet.
Good to hear you are alive and well. Oracle.
Very glad you're okay.
Thank you for the entertainment and education.
Stay well and may you find new passions.
