I thought I died and went to Heaven, Biff your spot on superb great artist.
I like the Harmonica playing of Sonny Boy Williamson "Good morning School Girl" and of course Sonny Terrys " Harmonica Stomp" One of my big favourites is "Cow Cow Stomp" by Jed Davenport.
Cathy, ain't she just great Big Mamma, I have her on a DVD. You guys have made my Day.
Lets have a Blues Section on Gente. lol

Both these guys came out of the Great Folk Scare of the late 50s and early 60s. Too bad there aren't any performances on youtube by the late Dave Van Ronk, the mayor of MacDougal Street, another superb blues guitar player and vocalist.
Turn up the volume so the neighbors can hear!!

South Yorks.Posted: Mon Jul 23, 2007 9:53 pm ---- Excellent again Biff, how I envy you all in the US, the music shops here are limited in their selection of blues artists, and when I ordered some from Amazon. Com. The customs here charged me excise duty on them.
#7: Re: Blues for Carnie Author: Biff83, Location: FloridaPosted: Thu Jul 26, 2007 12:48 am ---- Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee's version of a Big Bill Broonzy tune. Clip from Pete Seeger's 60s show Rainbow Quest. Great stuff. Key to the Highway
Reverend Gary Davis's version of Samson and Delilah aka If I Had My Way Samson and Delilah

#9: Re: Blues for Carnie Author: carnie, Location: Barnsley. South Yorks.Posted: Thu Jul 26, 2007 10:51 am ---- Thank You so much Biff.
Iv'e managed to copy all those Artists clips from You Tube.
I think if they were to pick up a rusty nail and a piece of string they would be able to get a tune out of them.
When there was none of the modern electronic devices in their day, these old guys could make their instruments talk. Absolutly Fantastic.

Another neat acoustic blues.
#12: Re: Blues for Carnie Author: sameoldblues, Posted: Sat Jul 28, 2007 3:35 am ---- Hello. I'm Cathy's daughter. I just thought I'd add some links, too...I hope you don't mind...and by some, of course, I mean a good myriad. Six, to be exact. Sorry if this is too much for one post...these are mostly more popular artists, so sorry for that, as well.
Buddy Guy on electric guitar and vocals, Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones on bass, Pinetop Perkins on piano, and Junior Wells on harp. Song: When You See The Tears From My Eyes. Visual quality is a little subpar, unfortunately...
#13: Re: Blues for Carnie Author: carnie, Location: Barnsley. South Yorks.Posted: Sat Jul 28, 2007 8:37 am ---- Ever since I was able to access the You Tube site, I'm never off it, I'm like a child with a new toy.
Biff & Cathy's daughter thank you, they were some of the great masters of the Blues.
Little Walter is a great harmonica player, I did manage to get one of his CD's "Confessing the Blues" Just love it.
When ever I'm feeling blue, the music just lifts me , right now as I type this I'm listening to "Lonnie Johnson" I'm a Jelly Roll Baker funny 7 great.
#14: Re: Blues for Carnie Author: Biff83, Location: FloridaPosted: Mon Jul 30, 2007 9:17 pm ---- Sameoldblues,
Thanks for posting those. First time I've heard Magic Sam--I really enjoyed him! And Muddy Waters, well, a legend. I've just about worn out my vinyl copy of Fathers and Sons with Otis Spann, Duck Dunn, Buddy Miles Paul Butterfield and others.
Keep 'em comin'!
#15: Re: Blues for Carnie Author: Biff83, Location: FloridaPosted: Fri Aug 03, 2007 8:15 pm ---- Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee and Lightnin' Hopkins Blues For Gamblers
