@cicerone imposter,


Yeah, that's a great Muddy Waters classic, sho nuff, Al. By the way, if you want to imbed the video, just put [youtube] before your link, and then put [/youtube] behind it. Then you get this:

@layman,
Nick Katzman and Ruby Green did a version of Charlie Patton's "Moon's Going Down". Can't find it on U Tube. It was published on a compilation record called "The Best of Country Blues" by Kicking Mule Records.

Here is Thomasina Winslow doing that song. It's awesome, but I like Ruby's voice better.

@TomTomBinks,
Great tunes, sho nuff, Tom. Here's Charlie his own damn self doin that first tune. Like a lot of other delta bluesman of that era, he uses his guitar to double as a drum.

Muddy Waters also did that Magic Slim tune (first), as I'm sure you know. It's sometimes just called "Two Trains Runnin."

Here's another JB tune. An extended live "jam," if ya like that kinda thing. I usually don't, but this is good. JB is a little like Elmore James on acid, sometimes, ya know?

@layman,
I first noticed that with JLH, how he would slap the guitar body with his hand. And he seemed to be playing rhythm and melody at the same time. One man with one guitar and he sounded like a whole band, F***n amazing!

@farmerman,
Lucky Peterson's last album (Son of a Bluesman) comes highly recommended. :-) It's an auto-biography of sorts, as it tells about Lycky's childhood, his father etc. AND gorgeous musac.

From that album: Still Here

@farmerman,
I'm no big blues fan either, but about its use in travels:

I spent a few years in Afghanistan, way back when the USSR was still a thing and the moudjahedin were seen as freedom fighters. Pre-Taliban times, music was everywhere and particularly in cars. I would be exposed to hours of Pashtoon musac during car trips, and it struck me as being closed to the blues: simple harmony with standards and predictable chords; not much virtuosity in the instruments but a chorus here or there; a lot of emphasis on the voice and on the emotion the voice can carry; and the fact that all songs would sound pretty much the same.

So I recorded a couple of blues tapes at home, and during subsequent travels I played them again and again instead of the Pashtoon thing. Afghans just LOVED them...

This Chuck toon was later stolen by the Beach Boys (Surfin USA). At the very beginning is a brief shot of a very young Johnny Carson (on drums)

@layman,
I never dreamed that this wasn't original Beach Boys. I guess everyone was stealing music back then.
Layman, you seem to be VERY knowledgeable on this subject, and I've learned a lot just looking through this thread. If you would be so kind, give me your opinion on this: Who is doing blues now? I don't mean blues classics or covers of classics, I mean real modern blues.
Have a listen to this chick. I wouldn't call her especially talented but she seems to have the right idea, at least the spirit of it. (not bad to look at either!)

Well, Tom, I'd be glad to help you if I could, but you're asking the wrong guy. I don't try to keep up with modern performers. There's enough blues accumulated prior to 1960, or maybe 1980, to keep me entertained.

I haven't listened to this Babe yet, but I will.

PS. I like her! I wouldn't necessarily call this blues, but I agree with you that she has the "right idea."

@layman,
Her "Greatest Hits" compilation would consist of just the one song I guess. I'll continue to scour the internet for some real modern blues, and if I find any, I'll post it here.
