Bryan Lee is your Braille Blues Daddy:

When I was a teenager I had an electric guitar. I was never very good, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. Sometimes when I would be playing it, I would get really focused on what I was trying to do and all of a sudden….plop…a big ol’ dollop of drool would fall outta my face. That’s what it feels like listening to these two Bryan Lee live albums I got. I keep expecting to just let a puddle of drool come out somewhere in the middle of one of the guitar solos.

I’ve spent the past month or so with Bryan Lee’s live cds, Live and Dangerous and Live at the Absinthe Bar in the car cd player. Aside from being perfect music for the work commute, they are just terribly fun albums. With Bryan being on one of my favorite tracks on Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s Ten Days Out cd, I was really interested in checking out his music and then he came to town with Kenny on the Ten Days tour, and I knew I needed more.

If you wanna check out some nice electric delta blues and some performances that you can’t help but to turn up and roll the windows down to, check out these cds. Just don’t drool on your shirt.

From Live and Dangerous:
Bryan Lee – Hug Me Till It Hurts
Bryan Lee – Gave You What You Wanted
Bryan Lee – Six String therapy

From Live at the Old Absinthe House Bar: Friday Night
Bryan Lee – Braille Blues Daddy
Bryan Lee – The Sky is Crying
Bryan Lee – Going Down

  2. Hello Bryan,
    It has been an awfully long time since I last saw and spoke to you. Darrel Mand of Sheboygan here today. I don’t know if you will remember me……..but I used to book some gigs for you back in the 60’s. Plus, you used to play at some of my night clubs that I owned, like the Fawn outside Two Rivers, and the Wood Shed outside of Manitowoc. I also was the drummer with Father Time. I also played in a band with the late Al Jebavy/guitar and Kim Christianson/bass. I hope I am sparking some memories here. (smile) I plan to see you in person at a concert coming up in the near future at Sheboygan’s Weille Center/Theater. It will be great to experience your super music once again, just like the old days. Stay cool and see you shortly.
    My very best,
