A study in deities. Paul Butterfield Blues Band, featuring Michael Bloomfield on guitar (1965)
Michael Bloomfield moves on to the Electric Flag. Many great songs, but this is a good one featuring Nick Gravnites on vocals (he's still around!!!)
Albert King had no tolerance for any man who he thought was mimicking his style, until he heard Stevie Ray Vaughan. Here is one of Albert's best, and one that was hard to come down from when experiencing it live. Thank you Albert!
If you like this, and you like SRV, look for the IN SESSION show where they played together. The master and the student, with ultimate respect going both directions. I almost cried!
Almost back to where I started, with Stevie Ray. This may be the ultimate blues guitarist song, and it was captured for all to see and hear later. No single man could possibly be that good, so if I could just play that guitar once, could I be maybe half as good? A story, a fantasy, a dream....who knows! Enjoy.
You MUST watch the last two minutes of the song. You will not believe what you see.
P.S. One more to go, then I'll shut up ... maybe.
My last one, maybe. Here's some story that you can probably do without. I was going to college and working at a southside Phoenix liquor store. It was a real nice place, so we locked the front door at sunset. Drive-through windows on either side, but one was locked at sunset so you couldn't get broadsided. All business conducted in one window (thank God). I was running the show, when the show wasn't running me. Because the doors were locked, I could turn up the music. One night, this song came on, and.....screw the customers! Plywood up, and music louder. THIS WAS AWESOME! It was way too short, but I later found it. It turned out to be a bunch of kids from Ukiah CA (where the weed grows best) who had a blues band, played, split up, and were asked by a Berkeley record producer to come back together just once because their music was too good to be lost forever. This album was recorded, and two of the four participants (Mark Ford and Robben Ford) went on to become major artists in the music scene (in their own bands and as session musicians). To me, this is the best they had to offer (bias obviously taken into account), but I hope you like it.
OH NO...he's back. He left Chicago and ended up in Statesboro, Georgia. Then, he found Dickey, Duane and Gregg and look what happened as a result,,,
I have had my headphones on all night, and something is telling me I should go home and sleep. There was SO MUCH good music back then.
One of my all time favorites from way back in 1991, long before "Nu-Metal" or any of the other Hip Hop/Metal blends/genres emerged on the scene, Public Enemy and Anthrax were getting down and dropping Thrash Metal with a Hip Hop beat and hardcore lyrics to match:
Bring the Noise, 'nuff said!
