""After This Cigarette" cd review"

Ewing sings about our crazy mixed-up modern world in a way that listeners can easily identify with and latch on to. That may be Ewing's greatest appeal -- his songs are more like a wise buddy talking to you at a bar, devoid of any didactic "I'm the singer, you're the listener" separation.

"Herzog Studio Benefit"

August 3, 2009
Music marker fund drive begins
By Lauren Bishop

Cincinnati soon could get another historic marker showing its contributions to the music industry.
On Monday, the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation and others who helped erect the King Records historic marker in
Evanston last fall announced a fundraising effort for a marker at 811 Race St., downtown, where Herzog Recording Studios
operated from 1945 to 1952 on the now-vacant second floor. The building's current tenants include ArtWorks and CityBeat.
Late WLW engineer Bucky Herzog ran Herzog Recording Studios, where Hank Williams Sr. recorded "I'm So Lonesome I
Could Cry" 60 years ago this month as well as seven other classics. The first R&B King Records sessions were cut at the
studios with Bull Moose Jackson, and country acts including the Delmore Brothers, Grandpa Jones, Cowboy Copas and Patti
Page also recorded there.
"There's so much incredible history (in Cincinnati) that we're just trying to figure out ways to better preserve and celebrate it as
we continue to make new music," said Elliott Ruther, a founder of the nonprofit Music Heritage Foundation and the director of
development at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College.
Ruther made the announcement about the marker at the former studio site Monday along with musician Bootsy Collins and his
wife, Patti; Bud Herzog, son of Bucky Herzog; Hazel Davis, who met Hank Williams after his August 1949 session, when she
was 13; and former City of Cincinnati councilmen John Cranley and Jim Tarbell.
"It makes me proud to be related to the guy who was involved in the beginnings of an awful lot of music," said Bud Herzog, 72,
of Finneytown.
The marker could cost $4,000-$5,000, depending on its size and placement, Ruther said. The foundation wants the fundraising
effort for the marker to be grass-roots, while the King Records marker at 1540 Brewster Ave., was paid for by the City of
Cincinnati and the Cleveland-based Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Nineteen Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, including James
Brown and Bootsy Collins, made music at King Records, which operated from 1943 to 1971.
To celebrate the Herzog recordings and raise money for the marker, local musicians are lending their talents at a benefit show
on Aug. 22 at the Southgate House in Newport. Bands scheduled to perform include the Hiders, Straw Boss, Magnolia
Mountain, The Crick Gypsies, Mack West, Billy Catfish Orchestra, Katie Laur, The Comet Bluegrass All-Stars, The Kentucky
Struts, Elliott Ruther, Marvin Hawkins and Nashville-based Joey Allcorn.
The show starts at 8 p.m. and is $8 for ages 21 and older and $11 for ages 18-20. For information, visit www.myspace.com/
