Picked this up earlier in the week from a local shop. Had the order form to boot.
HAPPY FATHERS DAY
Haven't spun this one in a while.
I'm Ready - Muddy waters
When Negroes Walked The Earth
pretty sure I posted this before. Otis Taylor has an unusual style, primitive rhythms with trippy guitars interwoven in. This release has OT on acoustic and electric guitar as well as banjo and mouth harp. Eddie Turner on lead guitar and Kenny Paasarelli on bass, no drums.
Local blues giants from the 70's. The cool kids would sneak into their shows under-age at the colleges nearby. Easily my first exposure to live blues/rock.
I've got that one on vinyl! It's a good one.
I've seen Thackery live a few times. Highly recommended for anyone who likes their blues guitar on the loud, Hendrix influenced side of things.
I got to see a (really) young Johnny Lang jam with him one night in the mid 90s.
Indeed a great band, Have never seen them live though!
The 'Hawks are still at it but the only original member is the singer/harp player. There is a documentary about them titled "Blue Highway"
They still jam but the original lineup was my favorite. Might be because I was a lot younger and the rock n roll blues was more my style. Everything was better at 18...especially the girls
Some master of the telecaster. Going to Dallas/FTW next week. Looking forward to some hot weather and HOT blues.
