Blind Connie Williams – “Take My Hand, Precious Lord”

Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 9:00pm

Blind Connie Williams, born in south Florida in 1915.

A street musician who was based in Philadelphia for most of his life, Williams could play blues standards, folk songs, and pop tunes, but preferred spirituals. Here’s his version of “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” featuring his signature bass string slapping.

I love finding folks I’ve not heard of before and Mister Williams is a great one.

He is a fine player and  great singer well-versed in the traditions of the old days … back when the music was just startin’ out, so to speak. An innovative fella, too, eh.

Savor it, brief though it may be.

John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers

John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers were a pioneering English blues band, led by singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist John Mayall, OBE. Mayall used the band name between 1963 and ’67 then dropped it for some fifteen years, but in 1982 a ‘Return of the Bluesbreakers’ was announced and the name began to be re-used. The name became generic without a clear distinction which recordings could be credited just to the leader or to leader and his band. The Bluesbreakers have included luminaries such as: Read more on

The Blues Magoos – (We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet (1966-67), Revised

Published on Jan 16, 2018

Perhaps one of the giants of the early psychedelic hits, for some years my only video contribution for this song until now was an old slideshow I did originally back in 2012. Finally, it has been given the sort of treatment I have done for other such rock classics. “(We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet,” a song by the American rock band Blues Magoos, and released in October 1966, became a chart hit in the United States in February 1967. It peaked at Billboard at #5 on February 11, 1967 and at #6 on Cash Box on February 18, 1967.

Ooh such good memories.

Those days were so sonically rich and nutritious…

Love you, Blues Magoos!



Desmond Dekker & The Aces – Israelites (1969) HQ

Published on Nov 21, 2017

A surprise hit for the spring and summer of 1969 … released in October 1968 by Jamaican singer Desmond Dekker, the single was the first UK reggae number one and among the first to reach the US top ten. Most of us in the US had never heard of reggae yet and the sound was strange, yet the tune seemed oddly familiar with the lower register harmonizing vocals during each chorus reminiscent of those heard in early 60’s pop rock ‘n roll songs. That aspect of it made it sound a bit out of time and had many of us thinking we were hearing an early 60’s “golden oldie” we had somehow forgotten. It was hugely popular all the same, a catchy song with elusive lyrics that were difficult to understand except here and there. Despite “Israelites” being recorded and released in 1968, the Uni 45 discography shows its cataloguing in 1969. It debuted in the UK in March 1969 and soared to #1 for one week. It also reached #1 in Netherlands, Jamaica, South Africa, Canada, Sweden and Germany. In the US it debuted on the singles charts in May, reaching #9 on Billboard and #8 on Cash Box on July 5, 1969 (CB date). Very danceable, if you know how to dance to it … and the young lady in this video appears to know just how, with a little help from Korla Pandit on ghost organ.

I have loved this song since the second I heard it back when I was 14 and I love it just as much today, yessirree.

Gorgeous and so well played… a treasure.

I have never seen this film before, though. Chick’s pretty slinky, eh?

Donovan – Hurdy Gurdy Man (1968) HQ

Published on Aug 4, 2016

MONSTER psychedelic hit time! At least I think so. Most psychedelic bands began as folk rock groups (just ask Marty Balin of Jefferson Airplane who said so in an interview). Even Sean Cunningham of garage/psychedelic rock band Music Machine began as a folk singer. For that matter, so did Blondie vocalist Deborah Harry. Add a little fuzz guitar and some feedback, amp up the vocals and — voila! — folk rock suddenly is transformed into psychedelic rock. Mr. Balin, by the way, cited the Kingston Trio as an early influence. For that matter Arthur Lee of Love decided quite intentionally to take psychedelic music back to its folk music roots on his third LP, Forever Changes. I have always LOVED folk music, especially the Kingston Trio, but also Peter, Paul, and Mary, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, and this iconic 60’s performer and songwriter, Donovan.

Donovan, perhaps, is the most radical example of someone who went from folk to psychedelic rock in practically no time at all. He’s the proof in the pudding of psychedelic’s folk and folk rock beginnings. And his was a success story.

Enter this GIANT psychedelic classic from 1968: “Hurdy Gurdy Man.” This is one of those hits that actually came to personify psychedelic music and the era. It is one heavy tune. It is one of many reasons I think 1968 was a bigger year than “the Summer of Love” year, 1967. Of course, some of the major music of 1968 was recorded in 1967, so let’s keep that in mind too.

Some famous musicians played on this song, but I will quote from Wikipedia now because there appears to be some disagreements as to who:  “In the booklet that came with Donovan’s 1992 double CD, Troubadour: The Definitive Collection 1964–1976, Allan Holdsworth and Jimmy Page are listed as the electric guitar players and John Bonham and Clem Cattini (spelled as “Clem Clatini”) as drummers on the recording. However, according to John Paul Jones, who arranged and played bass on the track (and also booked the session musicians), Clem Cattini played the drums and Alan Parker played the electric guitar. This line-up was confirmed by Cattini. In Donovan’s autobiography, he credits Cattini (spelled as “Catini”) and Bonham for the drums. On Jimmy Page’s website, he lists this song as one on which he plays. Donovan said that Page was the guitarist in Hannes Rossacher’s 2008 documentary Sunshine Superman: The Journey of Donovan, where he also asserted that the song ushered in the Celtic rock sound which would lead to Page, Jones, and Bonham forming Led Zeppelin soon afterwards. In Donovan’s autobiography, he credited both Page and “Allen Hollsworth” as the “guitar wizards” for the song. However, he also says that “Hollsworth” had played with Blue Mink, which was a band that Alan Parker had played in. In the autobiography, Donovan said that perhaps this session inspired the creation of Led Zeppelin.”

“Hurdy Gurdy Man” was recorded April 3, 1968, and was released in May 1968 (UK) and June 1968 (US) as a single. It reached #4 in the UK, and peaked at #3 on the US chart Cash Box (#5 on the Billboard Hot 100) on August 10, 1968.

Donovan … is fabulous !
