The Ricky Lawson Collection Vol. 2

Ricky Lawson Collection 2

A couple of weeks ago I posted the first part of the two-part anthology of the great session drummer Ricky Lawson, who died on 23 December 2013 at the age of 59. This is the second part.

Peruse this tracklisting, revisit that of the first mix, and then look at the list of artists for whom Lawson drummed, but do not feature in the mixes. The man had an impressive CV.

When you look at the tracklisting for this mix, you”ll see a cryptic clue. The gruff-voiced singer”s people has DMCA-happy handlers. Or, who knows, maybe he spends the heart of Saturday nights trawling through music blogs. He (or, indeed, she) who waits will hold on to see how it”s going to end.  I usually don”t post that singer”s songs, but in view of this being a tribute to the drummer on the featured song, I will make an exception.


As always, the mix is timed to fit on a standard CD-R and includes home-bassdrummed covers. PW in comments.

    Thanks you for posting great quality music. Gems such as these would’ve been forgotten if it were not for you and your great generosity.

    If it wasn’t for compilations like these or bloggers like you, then I wouldn’t know or even think about who was playing the great drums on these songs. All power to you! Many thanks.
