You Don't Love Me Blues - T-Bone Walker (1945)


Jump Blues! You've tapped a big vein! Could easily fill a long thread by itself. Dance music, fun music, often with playful double-entendres, a blend of emerging urban blues and big band jazz, swing, boogie-woogie, big in 40s-50s, big influence on emerging rock and roll. My parents loved this stuff.


1949: Saturday Night Fish Fry - Louis Jordan & his Tympany Five

Evolution of the blues.

Catfish Blues to be exact.

Which dates back to 1920s Mississippi.




Yeah, this is based on 'Catfish Blues':



There is neither Hendrix 'CB' version from his 'Blues' album nor 15 min long 'Vodoo Chile' on mighty Youtube.. I'm very surprised..

..hence 5 live versions of the former song:



..and this (both songs based on 'CB'):

In such case one more VC by the guy who sooner or later has to appear on this thread.




well, lookie here:  Catfish Blues Part 2


Catfish Blues”/”Rollin’ Stone” “ ... seems to have originated with a group of players based in and around Bentonia, in the southern part of the state”.  This group would have included Skip James who was born in Bentonia, Miss. 1902. “Catfish Blues” was evidently “already traditional when Petway recorded it. Skip James having performed the same song in the 1920s.”




 and at the other end of the narrative:

too bad Seasick Steve was such a fraud. Sometimes his sound was really raw in a good way, sometimes an empty shell. He fooled a lot of people, including me ( and maybe JPJ).


So, this post was spot on, no problem.  Cigar box variations.  Thanks.


Does it matter that he was a fraud?




something about subjectivity and its significance is involved. I can barely listen to this. What does that mean? I don't care, **** him.




but he's just a musician trying to get on. Nobody wants to suffer. Everyone wants to be happy. The guy got lost in some kind of unhealthy ambition, maybe.
