Not quite country blues- but i recently took delivery of Seasick Steve's "Dog House Music".  Great fun- hilbillyish / hill countryish slide / shuffle stuff.  Sometimes with a battered 3 string guitar.

This guy made a massive name for himself appearing on Jools Hollands New Years Eve show a year ago and brought the house down.

I first encountered him a couple of years before that on Charlie Gillett's excellent radio programme on BBC London. At the time there was also a great video on the internet, which I believe had been produced by his Norwegian record company.  It had great footage of him reprising his former role of vagrant.  The guy really rocks and would not be out of place on the Fat Possum label.

Dare I mention these two CDs after the previous posts! But here we go, the new transcriptions of RJ and say what you will they are a revelation compared to all the old LPs and other previous CD issues  :P

I've really been getting back into Sylvester Weavers first Document volume, I really like his song "Poor Boy Blues" which dosen't seem to have any/much of a relationship to the traditional "Poor Boy Long Ways from Home", I think it's one of those songs where he plays the song out a bit too long as he only manages to get a couple of verses in there (constrained by the 3 minuite limit it would seem).

Well errr..... 1950s Buddy Rich is certainly not CB and neither is Sam Ku West but they can both play that's for sure  ;)

This album has been laying untouched on my shelves for a long time and as soon as I turned it on I recalled how great Furry really is.

The Furry disc is excellent. His Document recordings and his stuff from 1959 are priceless! I have an extra copy that I could sell on Amazon.com and get 30 dollars for, but I just don't want to sell it!

I'll keep an eye out for that one somewhere.


I just got back from Borders Books & Music Store and picked up this great 1961 Roosevelt Sykes album. Produced by Memphis Slim

That set has been sold at my local Borders store twice now before I could get enough money to buy it for myself.

I've been enjoying the "How Low Can You Go?" Anthology of the String Bass. A very nice set.

I've also had my head deep inside the
"A Richer Tradition" Country Blues and Stringband Music collection from JSP.
