Blues Currently Spinning

Recommended Posts

Couldn't find a BLUES Currently spinning thread, so thought I'd start one here.

WILLIE DIXON and MEMPHIS SLIM - Willie's Blues

Some BB KING up next, not sure what. Hope all is well with him in hospice care...

And sadly the news has arrived of his passing .... EC & BB " Riding with the KING " seems appropriate tonight.

The timing is interesting, but this has just gone up on the A.F. site. I heard the original CD all those years ago, and was not taken with the mastering; too clean.

I think Steve or Kevin will find the breathing heart of this one, and give it another lease of life.

A.F. are currently in an amazing phase with recent SACDs of Earth, Wind and Fire, and Labelle absolutely cooking.

ZM.

Not having any BB to play in tribute (I know, a bit of a gap in music collection, there) I decided to play some blues anyway. This came to me yesterday and I put it on. Damn fine album it is, too!

 

Disclaimer: I know Mr. Rowe's sister from when I lived in Bermuda but only recently heard she had a muso brother.

Rough Guide To African Blues LP

Will definitely be following up on few of these artists. Some really interesting and new sounding (at least to me) stuff here.

3 LP boxset of Robert Johnson - King of the Delta Blues Complete Recordings

 

Great stuff Citroen. I re-read Bob Dylan's Chronicles Volume 1 a couple of weeks ago. I had forgotten that it finishes with him discovering Robert Johnson. He gets signed by Columbia and John Hammond gives him a test pressing of King of the Delta Blues Singers. It blow his mind and he reflects on it as though this was the last piece of the conceptual framework, subconsciously assembled, that allowed him to find his own grasp on song form and language and so open the way for his transformation from a young sponge soaking up folk and blues songs to a prolific writer of original songs. I hope we writes Chronicles Volume 2 before his time is through.

 

Currently spinning King of the Delta Blues Singers on CD.

It is quite interesting to see how blues has travelled the full circle.

 

The Americans 'discovered' blues through the Englishmen who were 'trying' to emulate the delta sound........then in turn discovered that it all goes back to West Africa via Diddley Bow and Jamaica ......... :)
