Clarence Edwards

Biography

Louisiana swamp blues veteran Clarence Edwards was rediscovered within the ’90s following a long hiatus from saving, and started to garner a number of the reputation he deserved before his unfortunately timed loss of life. Edwards was created March 25, 1933, in Lindsay, LA, as you of 14 siblings. When his family members shifted into Baton Rouge, the 12-year-old Edwards started to learn your guitar by hearing older Charley Patton information. Sometime in his twenties, Edwards started playing the neighborhood blues circuit, primarily joining a music group known as the Boogie Beats, which presented his sibling Cornelius, Landry Buggs, and drummer Jackson Acox. Edwards also used the Bluebird Kings, but his perhaps most obviously (or, a minimum of, frightening) experience for the circuit arrived one night time when he was shot within the calf during an altercation beyond your Silver Moon Golf club in Alsen. Aside from playing music, Edwards backed himself with plantation function, and eventually got employment at Thomas Scrap, where he worked well for over 30 years. Edwards’ 1st recording sessions had been undertaken from 1959-1961, when he, his sibling Cornelius, and violinist Wayne “Butch” Cage documented collectively for folk chronicler Harry Oster (start to see the Nation Negro Jam Periods album). As opposed to the traditional strategy of those periods, Edwards’ following recordings — performed in 1970 for manufacturer Mike Vernon — had been more aware of modern trends; they are released on compilations like Louisiana Blues and Swamp Blues. Edwards continued to be largely silent before middle-’80s, when bluesman Tabby Thomas’ membership the Blues Container helped to revive the Baton Rouge blues picture. Because of Thomas, Edwards started finding regular functionality function again, not only locally but over the blues celebration circuit aswell. In 1990, Edwards finally documented his first full-length record, an acoustic/electrical affair for Sidetrack entitled Swamp’s the term (it had been afterwards remastered and reissued on Compact disc by Crimson Lightnin’). 1991 noticed the discharge of another record, Swampin’, this time around for New Rose, and 1992 created Louisiana Swamp Blues, Vol. 4, a compilation of mainly Edwards sessions offering him both single and with a little group. The grade of Edwards’ function gained generally high compliment in blues circles, but unfortunately, just like he was starting to gain wider identification among aficionados, he passed away in his longtime hometown of Scotlandville, LA, in 1993, at age 60.

#Quote
1 [on Julie Andrews] It's marvelous to direct her. She's enormously professional and understands that in the final analysis the last word is mine. Actually, working with Julie on a film is a whole lot easier than working with many people that I'm not married to!
2 Peter Sellers became a monster. He just got bored with the part [Inspector Clouseau] and became angry, sullen and unprofessional. He wouldn't show up for work and he began looking for anyone and everyone to blame, never for a moment stopping to see whether or not he should blame himself for his own madness, his own craziness.
3 Make 'em redecorate your office. That's primary, to let them know where you stand. Then, when you're shooting interior sequences, use your own interior decorator and set dresser. That way everything on the set will fit your house when you're finished.

#Trademark
1 Frequently worked with Peter Sellers
2 Scores by Henry Mancini
