Released 2009

Alvin Draper is one of the finest blues guitarists on the planet with vocals to match
NOTES
You just can’t keep Alvin Draper down. Even through his recent battle with throat cancer he has never stopped playing his great music. Now Alvin has been awarded
Best Male Blues Vocalist of the year by the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame (2008).
Beatrecords is pleased to present his new CD with what we feel are some of Alvin
Draper’s best performances.
Alvin Draper was born in Lubbock, Texas, but raised in Goree where his grandmother
had a cafe. Local farm workers would come into the cafe on weekends for a good
time and some great music. Lightnin’ Hopkins, Sonny Boy Williams,

Little Walter

,

Gate Mouth Brown, and John Lee Hooker were just some of the legendary musicians
who would show up regularly. Alvin’s Father, Richard Draper, was a guitar and voice
teacher to these giants of the blues, and Alvin is directly related to Lightnin’ Hopkins.

Over the years, Alvin Draper has played with Little Willie John, T-Bone Walker, Sam
Cooke, Gate Mouth Brown, and the Chilites, among others. Alvin moved to Palo Alto,
California, in 1968. With a sound reminiscent of B.B. King-Freddie King-Albert King
all rolled together, Blues aficionados can catch him playing on Sundays down at J.J’s
in Milpitas, CA.

This music is an eclectic collection of original rock songs. Variety of influences from Brit Pop to Country to Funk to just plain scary. Good melodies with harmonies and great beats. Just what you'd expect from Mike Shapiro.
NOTES
Get some real 60s music by a real 60s guy. This is Mike Shapiro's second CD of great music for Baby Boomers and kids that like 60s music. Just listen to a little of each song and I am sure you will like it. Mike was the lead guitarist and Songwriter for William Penn and His Pals, during the 60s and wrote the music for the cult classic, Swami, of Pebbles fame.
