Ooh baby, how timely can you get… a fabulous R.L. Burnside song played by my Goddess, the Mistress of Blues. Check out her performance. Did you go, ‘Whoa!’?

I know I’ve posted this before, but I felt it needed to be posted again. John Richardson captured a piece of Music magic here almost three years ago. I love all that Samantha Fish has recorded have all the albums, watched countless youtube videos, but to me this is her at her raw best. So much passion, energy and drive. Slide blues summed up in ten glorious minutes.

Right on, Ian!


Yeah Heah!

Fabulous talent.

Please read this excellent article, Forgotten Heroes: R.L. Burnside, by Ted Drozdowski, over at Premier Guitar.

It is eye-opening, that’s for sure.

Ever so sweet.

These folks were the integrators, they managed to mesh my loves of blues, bluegrass, country and rock into something wonderful and unique.

Daddy Told Me

This struck me as interesting because I can actually relate to this story.

And that is a Top Level Weirdness.




Billy Boy Arnold – 99 Lbs.

Reminds me of someone special, it does!

Fabulous performance, too!

Just wonderful… powerful and punchy.

Packed with deep emotion.

Cream – Rollin’ and Tumblin’

Clapton, Baker and Bruce performing Rollin’ and Tumblin’ @ the Royal Albert Hall on May 4th, 2005.

Ooh yeah, Blues my Blues away, boys!

Thank you kindly.

I swear that is what happened to the timeline after the cosmik navigator took that left at Teterboro. Must be. Madonne. What am I on about?

The damage I did to my motor’s motor is perfectly inexcusable. That was a long time ago, too. The thing I was worried so much about was not real, as usual. But so many other things are. Oh Lord.

I feel like I am flailing and tumbling through an eerily dark part of the Verses. Hence the Title which led to picking the song on the tube to go along with this gibberish, which is the reason for this post, unlike most other music posts. This zone is weird in that it has some good things in it. Very good things. Which is great. But… I get the feeling my out of control, misguided audio type building trip needs to pause real quick and the wagen needs to get sorted.

I hope I can get through, because we are headed for the weirdest zone of all the notorious Q continuum. Wuzzat? Thought it was just on telly, huh? Oh, how we wish it was.

But – my mind. Shot. Scary af. Whoa.

I had to get a tacks number to collect Sayles tacks for doin’ the magazine. Sigh. Cost o’ doin’ bidnis. At least it lasts five yarn. They’ll probably come and lock me up though, you know, just on general principals.

Oh God MY MOTOR!  

 I ordered the parts, because I have to make it go, but, the poor tortured thing needs retiring in the worst way. But I can’t afford to get a car. Even an old very used car. Damn, Jake, I probably can’t afford frikkin’ Uber, either! Fuck.

 I need to stop thinking about it for a bit. I’ll go even more insane.

How about a picture of a meteorite on Mars? Okay, here you go…


And here is another pretty pic, this one of Titan in Infrared showing the very alien hydrocarbon sand dunes that there are apparently quite a lot of.

And one more pretty pic. A lovely old sea turtle with plants on, looking rather like a pic of the globe…

Okay, I better go.


Too Slim and the Taildraggers – Blue Heart

Too Slim and the Taildraggers’ new release, Blue Heart, was recorded in Nashville with producer Tom Hambridge. Tim ”Too Slim” Langford also utilized Nashville studio aces and current former Delbert McClinton guitarist Rob McNelly, bassist Tommy MacDonald, Tom Hambridge on drums and Reese Wynans of Stevie Ray Vaughn’s Band on Hammond B3. Former Wet Willie frontman Jimmy Hall also makes a guest vocal appearance as well as lending his harmonica talents. Too Slim’s previous CD, Shiver, was nominated for Blues Rock Album Of The Year at the 2012 BMA awards. His last four albums have charted in the Top Ten on the Billboard Blues Charts.

This is most excellent!

Quite sure you’ll agree!

Amazing this is only on an auto-generate.

Do you agree? I see it a lot for some very great talents, but I don’t understand it.
Butt Naked Free is a great name for an album, isn’t it?

A wonderful way to be as well.
