Review for Still Standing from Peter "Blewzzman" Lauro
Mary4Music
"Still Standing" Features Bobby G on Vocals; Curtis Grant Jr. on drums; Larry Gold on guitar; Johnny "HiFi" Newmark on bass, and Johnny Rawls on keyboards and guitar. With Johnny Rawls - the perennial nominee and often winner of many soul blues awards - having written or co-written all of the disc's ten tracks, you'd be correct in assuming that this one's loaded with soulful blues.

YEAH THAT'S RIGHT our own Bobby G with Curtis Grant and the Midnight Rockers charted nationally on the Blues Charts for June, coming in at #23 (see charting stations below #25 for sure).

Big Jack Reynolds

This story begins some time ago, in 1982 as a college freshman at the University of Toledo, I signed up for a shift at the college radio station. I was assigned an 8am show on Monday mornings (guess I didn’t have much seniority) and told to play these stacks of Jazz albums and I was to host a morning Jazz show.


Big Jack and John Henry

I loved music but didn’t know anything about Jazz Music and apparently neither did the station Program Director as these albums turned out to be stacks of old Blues Albums. It was there that I discovered the greats like Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf and John Lee Hooker. Thus, my lifelong love affair for Blues Music began.

This lead to countless live shows and records buys and a journey that would lead to meeting Big Jack Reynolds a local Toledo Blues Musician in the mid 1980’s. That meeting would change my life and many others as you see Big Jack Reynolds was our Bluesman and although we had heard and had seen all the greats, he was there right in front of us playing his deep soulful blues and telling us stories that would become that of legend.
