Hi all,
Here is pianist/singer Nellie Lutcher doing her song, "Fine Brown Frame", reputedly written about the great drummer, Big Sid Catlett.  Boy, did she have great time!



All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
Here is Dave Edmunds with the amazing Albert Lee on lead guitar for "Sweet Little Lisa".  And just in case you don't believe it's possible for someone to play that way, I've also attached video of Albert in the studio.  It's great how unassuming he is and to see the reactions of the other musicians to what he is doing.





All best,
Johnm

Thank you, John. It's always a pleasure to have the "Guitar Consciousness Bell" rung. I had to go out to YT to watch the second one and this followed (a few people having fun on stage, Albert among them):



An here's Scotty Anderson playing a show piece:

Hi all,
Here is Lulu, doing "To Sir, With Love", from 2007.  Boy, can she sing!



All best,

Thanks, John--That's a good one for sure. Like many of us in the U.S., my only exposure to Lulu was to her Top 40 hits in the sixties. But when I lived in Taiwan and did transcriptions and translations for Taiwan Television, one of the shows I worked on was "Let's Rock!," which prominently featured Lulu (as well as many other talented artists). I was very, very impressed by her talents. "Let's Rock!" was a Jack Good production for teenagers in the UK and beyond. The MC doing the intro for the famous Howlin' Wolf appearance on Shindig! is Jack Good.

I'm sure that our UK members can provide more info.

That augmented triad/whole tone lick at around 3:41 is too cool! I've heard some gypsy jazz players do similar things, but rarely a blues player.

Cheers.

An interesting song by British "indie rock" band, the Wave Pictures. The subject matter will be familiar to Weenies. The guitar style is straight out of Africa. The band's guitarist David Tattersall is a very good fingerpicker in the style of Rev. Davis, John Hurt, Fahey, etc. and has released an LP of acoustic guitar instrumentals called "Little Martha" (that Allman Bros. tune being one of the tracks).

It might be a bit too quirky for some folks, but I have come to like it.

Hi all,
I always loved this song--what a great lead singer.  In the States, I think most of us had no idea who the Foundations were, who comprised the band, etc.  I don't know how many other bands there were in England at this time who had this kind of sound, but they just seemed so much more groovy than the typical Rock bands of the time.



All best,

Dom Flemons has a new record out. I found this very soothing. [edit, later - actually it's been out a while]

Hi all,
I became aware of this duet recording of Shirley Collins backed by Davy Graham when a student asked me to transcribe Davy Graham's guitar part.  He sure was an inventive guitarist.  I figured out out that he played his accompaniment here for "Jane, Jane" out of E position in standard tuning.  Here is "Jane, Jane":



All best,

Davy Graham was arguably the acoustic guitarist who "started it all". Subsequent star players all looked up to him. I once saw him on a train from London to Leeds in the early 1970s, but I suppose I was too shy to talk to him, and he was already engaged in conversation with an elderly lady who clearly did not know who he was. This was at a time when not many people would have recognised him, but being a guitar nerd I did.
