Gonzo Weekly #99: Jon meets Carl Blue Wise

Carl "Blue" Wise, Producer/Songwriter/Owner of Blueboy Records in Memphis, TN, the home of Rhythm, Rock and Soul, has been writing and producing music for years. He recently produced an album on the legendary Sun Recording artists "The Climates" and the new band "Highway 51" on Blueboy Records at blueboyrecords.com. These are a labor of love recorded at Royal Studios - this is the same studio that housed Hi Records, home of Al Green, Willie Mitchell, Bill Black, Charlie Rich, and Ann Peebles. Keith Richards and Rod Stewart also recorded their biggest solo records at Royal. John Mayer and Tom Jones have recently recorded there as well.

Carl "Blue" Wise and his son Jordan formed Blueboy Records to exploit all genres of great music including R&B, Soul, Rock and Roll, Americana, and Pop. Carl "Blue" Wise, having been in every facet of the music industry since the Stax glory days, had the good fortune of working with some of the all-time greats in the music industry; Willie Mitchell, Eddie Floyd, Sir Mack Rice, Rufus Thomas, Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zant, The Bar-Kays, and many more.

By anybody’s standards, that is an impressive resumé, but he has now started yet another new project as a concert promoter.

DENNY LAINE is a founding member of THE MOODY BLUES and co-founding member (with LINDA MCCARTNEY) of WINGS. Laine will be performing all his hits from the Moodys and Wings with THE CRYERS in Memphis, Tn. at Neil's Music Room.

"Go Now", "Band On The Run", "Time to Hide", "Jet", "Silly Love Songs", "With A Little Luck", "Mull Of Kintyre" and many more...

Advance tickets are $25 via paypal (blueboysoul@yahoo.com) or $30 at door. Info: blueboysoul@yahoo.com

This is all too exciting to ignore, so a couple of days ago, I telephoned him all the way over in Tennessee to talk about this and his other exciting projects.   Enjoy.
