Blowfly Discography ===> https://urlgoal.com/2trwLH
Reid was born in Cochran, Georgia, in 1939 and moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, in his adolescence (c. 1949). His stage name was given to him by his grandmother who he would visit in Georgia occasionally. During this time, Reid would make explicit parodies of the country music that was popular on the airwaves in Cochran then, prompting his grandmother to brand him a \"blowfly\".
\"In hillbilly, you'll find some of the best lyrics and morals. I used to listen to Homer and Jethro, and they would rap most of the time, only they didn't call it rap then. They used to call it soul talkin'. As a form of revenge, I would take songs like \"The Twist,\" and I would change it from (sings) \"Come on baby, let's do the twist\" to \"Come on baby, and suck my d-!\" My grandma would say that's terrible, you're a poor excuse for a human being. Child, you're nastier than a blowfly.\"
Weird World was a TK subsidiary entirely dedicated to releasing the \"works\" of Blow Fly (a.k.a.Clarence Reid), notorious musician, soul singer, composer and producer (for Alston records and BettyWright) whose obscene rap over current disco and soul anthems could be seen by some as the originaldirty rapper. And to be fair, some lyrics could be quite funny. At the time, these albums were filed under\"Adult Comedy\", sometimes behind the counter due to the nudity on many covers.Many of these are sexually-oriented parodies of hit songs. Reid had been doing off-color parodies sincehe was quite young. His grandmother overheard one of these and exclaimed he was nastier than ablowfly. After singing his parodies for friends, he finally recorded an album in 1971 and started his ownWeird World label.Some of the titles below may be offensive to some, so if you are easily offended, please hit yourbrowser's\"back\" button and go elsewhere. The Weird World label (far left) is a yellow or green (very) cheap one with black lettering and \"WEIRDWORLD\" written on the top half of the label. There is no mention whatsoever of the T.K. connection onthe label and it is rarely mentioned on the record sleeves. Blowfly did have an instrumental 12-inch discosingle on the T.K.

Recorded in Dortmund, Germany, in 1980, for the television series Rockpalast, Live at Rockpalast captures Albert Collins & the Icebreakers in the midst of the career revival the singer-guitarist experienced when he recorded a series of albums for the Alligator label. The iconic Texas bluesman is in top form, and he really soars with a powerful, super tight band behind him. This two-CD, one-DVD set is a welcome and valuable addition to his discography/videography. 1e1e36bf2d
