And of course John Mayall
British 1960's groups is a good way to dip yer' toes in to the blues and then check out who they ripped it from. Pinetop Perkins and Jimmy Reed did it for me..but depends on my moods and if i have had some sauce...
Here's a stoop tapper.
Sonny Boy Williamson - Don't Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide.
Lennon said he "pinched" Love Me Do from Hey Baby by Bruce Channel...but on hearing this-
Maybe some Sonny Boy Williamson.
A harp, mic and pure talent.
We must never forget fellas like this..when i hear Beefhearts China Pig...it's just a Delta extension...this is fantastic history.
Son House - Death Letter.
John Mayall is without a doubt an important figure in the development of the British blues scene from the 1960s and having at various times during the 1960s Eric Clapton, Peter Green & Mick Taylor passing through his Bluesbreaker's and later on during the 1980s Walter Trout but unfortunately John's vocals are an acquired taste to say the least.
