 You're both welcome - I found this researching from the MOtt Willis selection John Miller just posted in his Miller's Breakdown

Here's one of Lonzo Burkes selections - but youtube only had posted the track as it appeared another disc. I found the "Blues at home" series on Amazon  Never heard of these bluesmen either and was surprised that they slipped through the cracks.

Here's a link to the series on Amazon, and there's also two discs with interviews in the collection of some of the bluesmen... https://www.amazon.com/s?rh=n%3A163856011%2Ck%3ABlues+at+Home%2Cp_n_feature_browse-bin%3A625150011&keywords=Blues+at+Home&ie=UTF8&qid=1538792636

Hi all,
I just found this footage of John Jackson.  I sure love that move he does on "Cindy", starting around 1:11.  Those of us who had the opportunity to spend time with him certainly were lucky.



All best,
Johnm

Thanks for finding that clip, Scratchy.  Boy, it's a good one for seeing Joe's left hand and seeing where he did a lot of his moves in Spanish.
All best,
Johnm

Don't know why I suddenly got an urge to watch/listen to old T-Bone Walker recordings this morning, these whims are common in the age of YouTube.

Briefly skimming through a couple of bio pages on the Web--a doubly dangerous practice for finding "facts," I know--I read that T-Bone's family had Blind Lemon Jefferson over for dinner occasionally, that T-Bone was Lemon's "lead boy" for a while, and that T-Bone and Charlie Christian did a guitar/bass/dance street act, I'd definitely pay a dollar to see that.

Probably common knowledge for many of you. Here's T-Bone's first two recorded sides:

"Lovely stuff" as Alan Partridge might say.

Two fine players having fun:-)

What is this musician doing? Inventive lead guitar from Little Son Joe!

Hi all,
Here is the very great Frankie Lee Sims.  How could he sing like that?



All best,
