I always loved BB and thought of him as a kind of ambassador for the blues because he'd kinda crossed over into popular culture.

If you like the blues there are some excellent books about the subject and history of this great American musical tradition: Got the Blues: The Best Blues Books (from Amazon)

On this day in 1930, Son House made his first recordings for the Paramount Label in Grafton, Wisconson. Recorded that day were "Dry Spell Blues", "Preaching the Blues", "My Black Mama", "Mississippi County Farm Blues", "Clarksdale Moan", and an unissued test pressing of "See That My Grave is Kept Clean."

Re: Blues Blues Blues: Redux

Louis Jordan - Saturday Night Fish Fry: released in 1949. I consider this the 'first' rock and roll song. You can hear the simple but plain guitar licks that are classic R&R under the boogie-woogie beat of the song, as then called.



Of course we could all go back and forth on this, but it is acknowledge by many that Louis Jordan was instrumental in developing what became known as R&R, from his Jazz, Blues, big band swing, and boogie woogie styles (sometimes called jump blues) that he merged during and after WWII. Though others of course contributed. Ike being one.

The Stones - The Back of my Hand






I hear a preacher on the corner
Ranting like a crazy man
He says there's trouble, troubles are coming
I can read it like the back of my hand

I see love, I see misery
Jamming side by side on the stage
In the wind some mournful melody
I can read it like the back of my hand

The back of my hand..... Oh yeah

Oh yeah....

I see dreams, I see visions
Images I don't understand
I see Goya's paranoias
I can read it like the back of my hand

Well, read it like the back of my hand
Oh yeah, wow yeah
Wow yeah
Read it like the back of my hand

I can't stop listening to this.

Did you see SRV in his early days?

I would have loved to have seen him with Lou Ann Barton singing.

Saw him countless times. I used to manage a bar a few doors up from where Stevie had a regular gig, so on slow nights I'd walk up and catch a set. My hearing was already destroyed by that time, but I'd still stand behind the stage and (more importantly) behind the speaker banks. They were loud.

Im sure that I heard Lou Ann with him at that time, but my memories are somewhat hazy. My memory also has an unfortunate tendency to conflate Lou Ann the Barton with Lea Ann the Bizarro.

I also have a memory of Stevie playing with his brother in 1974 with Keith Ferguson in Storm, an event that has been proven to me to never have happened. I know I did see him a little later with the Cobras.

Doesn't mean you weren't there. You where certainly somewhere. This sort of thing happened to me also, many times. In Alaska and elsewhere, strangely enough, around the same timeframe. Last days of the raw "60's" before Disco and Fantasy Island ruined the Universe and send everyone into a Quaalude tailspin.

This is the exact sort of positive affirmation I have come to rely on from my fellow 2+2ers. In fact, I repeat it out loud 15 times every morning, and have done so for the last 40 years.
