    I hate when I make a post and loose it, lol..

    Anyways some funky and sloppy HDT joints...these are some of my favorites by this cat. I hope no-one is visiting this thread looking for refined blues (a la Clapton, Rory, etc.), because this is the Delta stuff. Ruff and ugly.

    Wow! This man knows how to slide. Great stuff Phil. I've read about Hound Dog but never have heard any of his tunes. "Ruff and ugly":oyea: That sums it up.

    This is great stuff!

    I have an intense love of SRV, but only a slightly-more-than-passing-fancy as far as the rest of the blues.

    This kind of raw stuff is my favorite. Just feel it, play it, production be damned.

    I don't know if you've ever seen this doc, but it's a good one:

    Speaking of which, I just spent 10 minutes looking for the soundtrack down in my fort...and I can't find it!! Damn! A code red situation.

    Thanks for the recommendation on that documentary! I think I have seen it recommended on another site as well. I guess I will have to pick it up now. :grinthumb

    I agree with you about the loose production values. When it comes to blues, I have always placed higher value on passion and intensity.

    If this is Delta blues, then sign me up! Being relatively new to the joy known as 'the blues' - it's apparent that I have a misguided notion of Delta blues. I am definitely getting Vehicle's Last of the Mississippi Jukes to further my blues 'education'. Thank you Phil for this introduction to Hound Dog Taylor, and to Vehicle for your documentary suggestion. :bow:People like the two of you makes crf a wonderful and educational experience.
