I think I saw some old man and he was real good on the guitar, on the chords, and he didn't sing that good, just play something like that, and I copied some of that and put the words to it. And Blind Blake used to have something kinda in that style. He would play in that style and I thought he was a real good guitar player. Nice chords. Played finger style. - Jesse Babyface Thomas explains how he wrote Blue Goose Blues, interview in Shreveport, La., ca. 1989

 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:

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

Bro Taylor was/is from Fitzgerald, Ga. (he was still alive, in his 90s a year ago). This tracks is from a no-label-name, no-issue-number LP titled "Georgia Grassroots Music Festival", recorded in 1976 or 1977. Bro Taylor did quite a bit of recording through the mid-to-late 1970s, and was musically active at least into the 1990s when he was part of a gospel program at Carnegie Hall. He made several singles on the Pitch label, from Savannah, Ga, plus a privately-issued LP that was picked up and reissued by Fat Possum. Fat Possum also a few years ago did a three-CD reissue set of Pitch gospel (the label didn't issue anything else) recordings on its Big Legal Mess subsidiary. Modesty prevents me mentioning who wrote the notes to this set, but if you have any questions about Pitch...

Hi all,
Here's a great one from Bill Monroe, "Get Up John".  He has the mandolin cross-tuned so that not all of the pairs are in unisons.  What a sound!



All best,
Johnm
