More photos from the album

Here are some more of the photos I've taken of great acts over the years. First up, here's Clarence Carter at the Grant Street Dance Hall in Lafayette in 1995. One of my spine tingling moments. Rock and roll pioneers Don and Dewey played the 100 Club back in the mid 90s. Great show. Don Sugarcane Harris died in 1999 and Dewey Terry in 2006.
Doris Troy also appeared at the 100 Club around the same time. Just One Look was just one of many great tracks she recorded. Doris died in 2004.
This is Joey Dee and the Starliters playing for free at the Riverfront inNew Orleans in 1995.
And here's Wilson Pickett. The Wicked Pickett played the Grand at Clapham Junction memorably in 1996. He died in January 2006.
Swamp pop legends Cookie and the Cupcakes reformed to play Utrecht in 1995 (another spine tingling moment) and the following year played at Jazzfest. Huey 'Cookie' Thierry died in 1997, putting an end to the group's revival.
Here's the late Eddie Bo at the Jazz Cafe. Eddie died earlier this year.
Also at the Jazz Cafe, here's Edwin Starr. Stop Her On Sight was one of the greatest ever soul records. Edwin died aged just 61 in 2003.
Rocker Dale Hawkins played the Tennessee Rock and Roll Club in good old Wood Green. Another great night.
