Page’s Kitchen...the Swamp Sessions: Larry Raspberry (Episode 7)

Larry Raspberry and the Highsteppers band
Larry Raspberry and the Highsteppers

This show pretty much has all the ingredients that make these sit-downs so special...musicians caught in the act of being themselves, and lots of successful collaboration and congeniality. The Memphis Highstepper himself Larry Raspberry brought Greg “Fingers” Taylor and Greg Redding to the swamp and the late Robbin Thompson hangin’ in on guitar and vocals. And how about Someday I’ll Get Out of These Bars, Page Wilson’s emotional cover of that great Keith Sykes tune, one of his most emotional performances ever.

For your listening pleasure and historical perspective, JAMinc is proud to present the full 35-program season of Page’s Kitchen…the Swamp Sessions as previously aired on VPM Music and The Breeze. These Americana allstars appeared on the late Page Wilson’s Out O’ The Blue Radio Revue some three decades ago. They were all live, one-take recordings made in various Richmond studios at the time and stand as a fitting tribute to those artists and to Page for having the taste, drive and gumption to lure them into his make-believe lair, deep in the Chickahominy Swamp. We’re deeply grateful to Jude Schlotzhauer and Virginia Blue Wilson for entrusting us with these priceless master tapes and to Guy Spiller and Charlie Reilly for carefully converting them from analog to digital. Sincere thanks to our loyal sponsors: Digital Video Group, the Scott Street Family and the members of VPM.
