I've been rummaging in my photo albums again and found some more music photos from the early 90s.
First, here are two New Orleans R and B legends pictured at Jazzfest in 1992: Chuck Carbo
(left) and James Sugar Boy Crawford
. Chuck, who died in 2008, was a member of New Orleans vocal group The Spiders and went on to record solo R and B and funk from the sixties onwards, including Meet Me With Your Black Drawers On, a copy of which I bought at the time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-RkDndwQjk
Sugar Boy is best known for his recording of Jock-O-Mo in 1954 (better known a few years later as Iko Iko by the Dixie Cups). He died in 2012 and was the grandfather of Davell Crawford. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgOrIar_qGk
Next, here is soul singer L J Hamilton
pictured at the Lion's Den club in 1992. At the time he had recently recorded some soul on the Unity label in New Orleans including this one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zrbd9eSxcss
I believe he was also known as Larry Hamilton, who recorded for Wardell Quezerque at Malaco which were released on Pelican in the 1970s. Larry died in 2012.
Here are Ann Peebles
and Otis Clay
being interviewed at Jazzfest, also in 1992. Two soul greats.
This is New Orleans R and B singer Earl King
. Earl died in 2003. Here he is singing Trick Bag. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJ7IkhdXb7U&feature=kp
Next we have some photos of people who played in London in the early 1990s. Here is Roy Rogers
at the Mean Fiddler in 1992.
at the Town and Country 2, also in 1992. Johnnie, who died in 2005, worked with Chuck Berry for many years, arranging and playing piano on many of his classic tracks.
Here are a couple of photos of members of the Texas Tornadoes, a tejano super group comprising Doug Sahm
(below), Flaco Jimenez
( second photo), Freddy Fender and Augie Meyer. The photos were taken at the Town and Country, London, in 1991. Doug died in 1999.
This is the influential swing and boogie woogie player Merrill Moore

Also at the T and C 2, this is blues singer Charlie Musselwhite
, photographed in 1991.
And this is the very wonderful Ronnie Spector

Another great female singer, this is Betty Lavette

This is Screaming Jay Hawkins
at the Town and Country Club in 1991. Jay died in 2000.
Finally, also at the Town and Country in 1991, this the great Nina Simone
