Bods, too bad Gary Moore left us quite early.

Now his songs have taken on a deeper meaning to his followers. RIP.. Gary Moore...




What happened to the thread?
Not much bluesmen, I guess...

Been listening a lot lately to Jeff Beck's CAUSE WE'VE ENDED AS LOVERS. Wow..the magic never wears off.....
Then segued to SRV's LENNY. Anybody who visits the house, I play this song to during inuman and it never fails to totally
floor them, kahit ngayon lang nila nadinig.

And of course my all-time favorite, keeps coming back like a theme - Gary Moore's STILL GOT THE BLUES FOR YOU.....

Among the rarest and most treasured albums I have are three blues albums: one each from Leadbelly, Mississippi John Hurt, and LightninG Hopkins.

The liner notes from the Leadbelly album go this way:

"Leadbelly is the hard name of a harder man.

On Dec 31, 1934, a forty-nine year old Negro ex-convict who was born in Louisiana, arrived in New York City. His first forty nine years were spent in the deep South, where he learned to play the twelve-string guitar. He was friends with Blind Lemon Jefferson, and they traveled around together for about a year singing and playing. But at that time Hudie Ledbetter got into a brawl that resulted in a killing. His prison sentence was thirty years at hard labor.

The parole came in January, 1925. In 1930 he was sent to Angola Penitentiary in Louisiana. His sentence was ten years.
John Lomax, American folklorist, found him at Angola. Leadbelly sang, and John recorded:

If I had you, Gov'ner O.K. Allen/ like you got me/ I would wake up in the morning/ let you out on reprieve....

The governor did'nt respond but Leadbelly was released in 1934 becuase of "good time". He then came to New York and worked for Moses Asch. He recorded his songs, which have become as widely known as any in the history of American folk or popular music, among them Rock Island Line, Good Night Irene, Old Cottonfields at Home, Take this Hammer, Pick a Bale of Cotton, Boll Weevil, Midnight Special.

Leadbelly died a pauper in Bellevue Hospital in 1941. His fame is posthumous; his songs and singing are a powerful part of American folk music."

Bods:

Been playing a lot of Rolling Stones these days. Nice thing is, Keith Richards used many open tunings for their songs-- like "Open G" in Brown Sugar. I can be wrong but these Open Tunings were mostly employed by many Delta Blues men.

I got hooked now with open tunings using a slide. Very interesting as i seldom played in open tunings before.

Here's a sample.



Cheers!

16track:

I got about 150 Rolling Stones songs on my ipod shuffle - an all- Stones ipod. I got hooked on the Stones about 3 years ago when I discovered that the body of work of this band is such a magnificent collection of pure artistry. In fact I now rank the Jagger-Richards songwriting tandem on a par with Lennon-McCartney. They just have a bad rap, but if you consider that they've been churning out excellent music consistently for almost 50 years now, you gotta admire them. If you go past the usual suspects like Satisfaction, Honky Tonk Women, and Jumpin Jack Flash, you'll discover a great wealth of really good songs.
In fact my top three favorites from them now are of the country/blues mold:
Dead Flowers
Sweet Virginia
The Spider and the Fly.

Recently saw a dvd of SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL, a 1968 (?) documentray by the legendary filmmaker Jean Luc Godard, where a recording session by the Stones is interspersed with footages about the political atmosphere of those days. Weird film. But anyway, seeing the Stones create the song Sympathy for the Devil in a recording studio is just plain delicious. From Keth and Brian and Mick laying down the basic guitar line to the song and Charlie making initial false steps in making out the backbeat up to the point where they finally put the song together complete with a bongo player and a backing chorus of vocals is just riveting.

RIP Johnny Winter.

Your incredible version of Highway 61 Revisited was one of the listening highlights of my teen years.

The blues must be scorching the heavens now.

Hey, pwede na kayong jam dyan nina Stevie Ray Vaughan at Gary Moore. That's a literal heavenly All-Star Blues Band!!!

Again, playing a lot of blues lately. Downloaded quite a bit.
Never fades.

Surprisingly been hearing blues as background music in eating joints. How incongruous can that be?

Parang sa inuman lang to bagay dati. But I've heard it in Linguini Fini each time we're there. Lately in the Gypsy Gourmet, a new place in Roces. Went well with the favadas.

16track! Musta? Jam? Hehe

Wow.

 

uhmm this thread is not exactly jumping. lol!

 

anyway to get this thread back on its feet, I made a blues playlist on my phone. Sometimes I listen to it on my daily hikes/jogs. It's not exactly that edge-of-your-seat blues or what, but it works for me. Gonna add more in the future:

 

Statesboro Blues - Allman Bros Band

 

When Love Comes to Town - U2 with B.B. King

 

I'm In The Mood - John Lee Hooker and Bonnie Raitt

 

Parchment Farm - Hot Tuna

 

Going Down To Mobile - Savoy Brown

 

Bowlegged Woman, Knock Kneed man - Hot Tuna

 

Johnny Guitar - Johnny Winter

 

The Blues Keep Me Holding On - Savoy Brown

 

Steamy Windows - Tony Joe White
