    Snakefinger Who? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snakefinger https://www.discogs.com/artist/142962-Snakefinger https://www.discogs.com/Snakefinger-Snakefingers-History-Of-The-Blues-Live-In-Europe/master/622807 Wow! Just discovered this was rereleased with extra tracks in 2013! https://www.amazon.com/Snakefingers-History-Blues-Live-Europe/dp/B00EJYGLXS < This is an album that will surprise die-hard experimentalists, delight blues aficionados, illuminate newcomers, and please just about anyone with a pair of ears. In 1983, Philip “Snakefinger” Lithman was in the middle of a promising career as the go-to guitar player for all things weird. His totally original helter-skelter guitar lines graced many of the records released up to that time by the eyeball-headed Residents as well as a few albums under his own name, and he was collaborating with artists as diverse as The Mutants and ex-Captain Beefheart keyboardist Eric Drew Feldman. In his liner notes to the original vinyl release (newly expanded by promising music to include nine previously unreleased cuts) he bemoans “…our present situation, where technology is art and the artist just the poor slob that pushes the buttons” and calls our attention to the blues: “Music full of the life force, that stands on its own, crude and powerful, and played by musicians, not mechanics.” The blues was Lithman’s first love, and the lessons he learned from masters like Robert Johnson, Buddy Guy, and the three Kings (Freddie, Albert, and B.B.) always informed all his work, no matter how outside he may have taken it. Every note he played dripped feeling as well as technique, tradition as well as originality. > and here it is! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nChsRC4wuc
