What are you listening to?

Recommended Posts

I do suppose it's time to expand my prog/art rock palette beyond the usual Yes, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, and ELP. I've never really listened to much Genesis before, but apparently it is "essential prog". From what I've heard so far, it's pretty decent. I just finished "The Musical Box" from Nursery Cryme. I'm not a huge fan of Peter Gabriel's voice, but eh, maybe it'll grow on me.

I don't ever inject my tastes here, but if you like blues, check out:

  • Blues With A Feeling by Paul Butterfield Blues Band
  • Driftin' and Driftin' by Paul Butterfield Blues Band
  • Texas by Electric Flag
  • Gibson Creek Shuffle by Charles Ford Band
  • Runnin' Blue by Boz Scaggs

They aren't vintage (all from 60s) but all are awesome. Thinking about them gets my juices flowing to put them on right now!

Definitely.  But, there is a theme behind these posts.

All musicians involved with Leonard Chess at Chess Records in the 1950s and 1960s.  If that is your link, I am expecting to see Chuck Berry, Etta James or Muddy Waters next.

BINGO !    36_2_68.gif.adb83a3674d73c04bfb08e77ee25eb1b.gif    You got it.

 

The real roots of Rock and Roll. 

The Rolling Stones, Elvis, Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, Clapton, Cream and many others  all used songs written by Willie Dixon under Leonard and Phil Chess' (Lejzor Shmuel and Fiszel Czyż ) "Chess Records" label.  Recorded by some of the badest Blues Men out of the deep south but brought to Chicago for the world to hear.
