Not much difference between the blues and church songs but the words. The blues is a natural feeling and a true feeling. The blues is the truth, you hear them singing that 'you done broke my heart' and this and that - that's the naked truth - Pop Staples, Chicago Tribune article

Long Train Running: The Story of the Oakland Blues
« on: September 02, 2021, 02:48:32 PM »
Hi all,
If you go to www.criterionchannel.com scroll down the page and look under Leaving This Month, you'll find "Long Train Running: The Story of the Oakland Blues", a documentary film that I think is worth watching. I enjoyed it and got to see a number of musicians I'd never heard or heard of before. The narration is minus a lot of the normal "blues talk" mumbo jumbo, and is refreshingly clear-headed and right down the line. I'm pretty sure you can watch the movie for free as part of an introductory offer. If you're interested, you should check it out.
All best,
Johnm
