I don't want this ever published while I'm alive, because if I did get any money for it, I would just drink myself to death - Blind Willie McTell On His 1956 Recordings

I'm seeing Juan martin at a local venue this Sunday night...



Should be good.  One of these days I'll figure out how to combine some flamenco ideas with the blues.

A track on a sampler CD that comes free with UK magazine "R2" has really caught my attention. It's a version of Bob Dylan's "Mississippi" by highly respected Scottish performer, Rab Noakes.

On this video he sports a "proper" Gibson, but on the recorded version (which you can find on his website - rabnoakes.com) he seems to be playing a Kalamazoo KG-11.

Noakes is a fine guitarist and blessed with a great voice.

Nosby, Stills, Crash & Young with Jones The Voice singing lead in a strangely perfect time machine trip back to 1969, when just about anything seemed possible:

This web site has been a real education for me and has exposed me to lots of great stuff I'd barely heard before. In particular - I'm really enjoying discovering what older Black fiddle music remains. Saw an old thread where Johnm mentioned this excellent modern player and was taken back to seeing this intense combo in '82 or so. Really love these guys and now think of Peg Leg Howell and Eddie Anthony when I hear it....  :)

Blood Ulmer - Charles Burnham, and Warren Benbow -

Saw somewhere that they'd played together recently for something in Europe - but no money/interest in the USA for tour apparently..... :(

Thanks to all Weenie people hipping me to great music....

Great raw cajun fiddling:

Ciro's Club Coon Orchestra was, according toe Dixon & Godrich,  the 1st recorded African-American string band. They recorded in England as early as 1916.

Wow!  Just look what lamb chops and a nylon string guitar can do.  Stylistically, a cousin to you, to my ear anyway.

Thanks for posting that Johnm!

Jerry Reed was beyond categorization, a true guitar savant, left us way too soon. Listen to that improvised chord melody backing the vocal, wowee!
