Rock H-Bomb Rock! by Rafael Alvarez
As we wind down–Wait, what week is this? They are all blending together!–As we wind down another week of physical distancing while trying to remain social, we turn to the life and music of Robert “H-Bomb” Ferguson, who recorded on the Savoy label of Cincinnati’s King Records. His low, gravely voice was “like raw honey; honey, baby, from the blue buzz’ bee.” Read about his life and artistry in this article by Rafael Alvarez, from the winter 2019 edition of Pathways. And treat yourself to a few of his most famous songs.
And just try to sit still.
