2020 release. Prove It On Me is the second album from Rory Block's Power Women of the Blues series.
This recording presents Rory's unique take on songs from phenomenal female performers and songwriters: Arizona Dranes, Elvie Thomas Merline Johnson, Madlyn Davis, Helen Humes, Rosetta Howard, Lottie Kimbrough, Gertrude 'Ma' Rainey and Memphis Minnie. Rory's goal for this release was to spotlight some of the more obscure names of the genre, some of whom did not become widely known 'despite their immense talent'.
All songs are given the Rory Block Band treatment, while showcasing their own individual style and contribution to the genre. Prove It On Me was produced by Rory Block and Rob Davis. All vocals on the new disc are by Rory Block, who also played all the guitar and bass parts on her Signature Model Martin Guitars. In addition, all drums and percussion heard on the new disc - guitar bongos, hat boxes, plastic storage tubs, oatmeal boxes and wooden spoons - were played by Rory.
