Listening to Virgil Anderson's Wild Bill Jones. Beautiful. Now if only I could figure it out.  :P

I've just pressed the repeat button several times on John Dudley's version of Po' Boy Blues. It's a warhorse of a tune, though I usually like whatever version happens to be on. His take on it is really great, not because it's unusual or breaking away from the mold, but he just plays with such ease, flair and energy. He's been mentioned elsewhere on the forum as someone it's sad we don't have more recordings of, since what we do have is so tantalizingly good - the other song being the most Patton-like version of a song out there, Clarksdale Mill Blues. Was there something else I am missing?

Edited to add: Yes, missing Cool Drink of Water Blues. Also here's Po Boy Blues, courtesy Yo' Tube:

"Sticks Over My Shoulder" LP on Mississippi Records
The best of George Mitchell's recorded country blues in GA including Jimmy Lee Williams, Cecil Barfield, John Lee Ziegler, Jim Bunkley, James Davis. Every track on this slab is amazing. I cannot believe Mitchell was lucky enough to find and record these brilliant artists who were all unique from one another. The drum and guitar of James Davis is spirited and wonderous. Cecil Barfield is a master of country blues, with the strangest strained voice and angular fingerpicking. John Lee Ziegler's upsidedown right handed guitar slide and soulful singing frequently ruins my day (in the best possible way). Jimmy Lee is hilarious and amazing.
"Blues Images Vol. 10"
I'm most excited by the Hi Henry Brown and especially the Blind Willie Davis tracks, one of which I'd never heard. Hearing those in better quality is startling. Dark Was The Night will always be the greatest American guitar and vocal piece ever cut. The Blind Blake cuts are good'uns. Everything else is cool, but not quite as fun as those.


Anything by James "Son" Thomas, is extremely sexy. Especially his dirty Catfish Blues.

There's a really nice version of Candy Man that Rev. Gary Davis plays on 12-string on Disc 2 of At Home and Church. Just listened several times.

I'm listening to lots of Pokey LeFarge.  Magnificent musicianship, and great fun.

Its odd- I really enjoyed the gig I went to with Harvey some time ago (very very small venue- 25 people, dinner, sets between courses which were completely acoustic- bass, washboard, harp, rhythm guitar and lead).  For some reason I decided I probably wouldnt enjoy the cds and until a fortnight ago hadn;t got them.

Then I did... Fantastic!
