I know you guys don't get excited much with these "new" blues guys but I thought of sharing anyway. I was testing some new mics for recording.

Smooth and nice touch, deltaslim. I like how you go long and don't even things out, part of the charm of the original for me, too.

Yeah, I agree this new fangled Robert Johnson is way too recent and "new". To be serious, once again a nice job and the mics seem very fine.

Big fat mouth, I followed her home
She pulled a gun and broke my jaw
Didnt leave me hard on, I didnt get sore

Good job!
A little known fact is that "the crossroads" was a major trucking route and a Robert Johnson, not necessarily THE Robert Johnson, was repeatedly struck by thundering Macs, Peterbuilts, Kenworths, Volvos, Fords and other trucks (lorries? for youse across the pond) traveling at high speeds. He was pummeled beyond recognition too many times to count,but was always able to reassemble his molecules long enough not to look like a squashed porcupine. he could also bounce back and play "Red Hots" after each squashing. Mrs. Etheria Smop, who lived up the road expressed wonderment at this phenomenon. "We just couldn't figure out why he'd keep going there to get hit by those trucks. Seemed ridiculous to us frankly." This seems to have been the general feeling at the shopping center adjacent to the crossroads. "He'd come in here get a cup of Black Coffee,said Oscar Norwich of Oscar's house of sandwiches, with two sugars, a tuna sandwich and a bag of chips (crisps, Brits) and go get hit by trucks, and then play his guitar, nice too. It was the damnedest thing"
So there you have it. Traffic safety and the Blues.

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

... and Mr.O'Muck - That's legend--wait for it--dary! Brings to mind, "the blue light was my blues, the red light was my mind." LOL
