The thread for Western iconic Blues music...blues in my system...feeling good.
ERIC BURDON & THE ANIMALS
Excellent rendition from the man Brian Jones from the Rolling Stones said was the best blues singer to ever come out of England
Eric Burdon has one of the most powerful voices yet......here's a little something from Pinkie Rideau, one of our favorites down at Lou's Blues in SF. The harp player is a wild man!

David, somehow I missed your John Mayall post. Brings back amazing memories.
We played occasionally as his back-up band when the Blues Breakers were on other gigs . He was a brilliant musician and a wonderful person.
You must be young if you think 81 is past its use-by-date. My youth is still in my head, though, sadly, not in my fingers. Out of practice.
I look at my keyboard daily but don't touch it often. My guitar is hidden away in the attic.
I do still have my Djembe drum close, though, to annoy the neighbours.
There are no Youtube memories of our band that I can find (although there are still a few albums out there).
Dave Peabody was our lead and is the only one who pursued a musical career. Here is one of his performances:

You and I have got to get together to talk and listen to blues John. You probably checked out a bit of my blues collection when you attended our TB Get-together. If not, get ready to be surprised.
Seeing Cyril B Bunter Band with Chris Wilson tomorrow night.
About to commence my Blues Highway blogs from a few months back...check them out...must talk soon.
This one recommended by littlewing...OK Cindy...let's see what it is

Dave, I have blues recordings going back to the early 1900s. My problem is listening to them using modern phono equipment as it is too sensitive and all I get is crackles with a very reduced voice/music background.
Want to hear the originals of:
Robert Johnson: "From four until late"?
Sonny Terry "Harmonica Stomp" with Oh Red and Blind Boy Fuller?
Vergil Perkins "Trouble in mind"?
Blind Willie McTell "Southern Can Mama"?
Brownie McGhee "Sportin' Life Blues"?
Skip James: "Little Cow and Calf is Gonna Die Blues"?
Ham Gravy: The original "Mama Don't 'Low it"?
Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell: "How Long, How Long Blues
Are you enticed? Figure out how to screen out the background crackles and I'll donate the records to you.
In the meantime here are Sonny and Brownie in all their glory. Enjoy...
You are on John...this one for you
