Amrap's AirIt | Australian Music Radio Airplay Project :: Blues :: John McNamara - Bad Reputation

John McNamara - Bad Reputation

John McNamara - Bad Reputation
The latest album by regional Victorian Soul/Blues artist, John McNamara, features some of Memphis’ finest musicians.

Recorded at legendary Ardent Studios, the line up includes Steve Potts (Booker T & The MGs),
Michael Toles (Bobby Bland, The Bar Kays), Lester Snell (Albert King, Isaac Hayes) and the cream of Memphis Soul/Blues studio musicians. Lester Snell did all arrangements.

The album features 6 John originals, alongside songs made famous by Otis Redding, Bobby Bland and Little Willie John. Also featured is John’s stinging electric Blues guitar.

John began the journey to record this album in late 2015. After looking at various recording options, he contacted legendary Producer/Arranger Lester Snell. Lester has worked with a bevy of artists from Keith Richards to Isaac Hayes, John Mayer to Cyndi Lauper. A genuine Stax Records original, his career spans more than 45 years.

Lester agreed to do album and supervise the musicians and recording at the famous Ardent Studios in Memphis. John worked up his material, and submittted it to Lester, who then wrote the horn arrangements and assembled the musicians.

John then completed the album back here in Australia, working at Bald Hill Studios with experienced engineer, Mark Woods.

About this track...

Recorded at Ardent with legendary Memphis musicians this original by John perfectly captures the vibe of his heroes - Bobby Bland, Little Willie John, Sam Cooke. The song lyrically details the change wrought by love - from bad boy to lover.
