The Blues

Glen Campbell on Austin City Limits “Wichita Lineman” (1985)

The one and only Glen Campbell performs his signature tune “Wichita Lineman” during his only Austin City Limits performance, taped and aired in 1985.

Oh my, what a wonderful man. A wonderful guitarist and singer and musician with tributes flowing in.

Love him, I do, for the lovely influence this guy had on me and yes, continues to.

 

Peace

 

Joe Bonamassa & Tina Guo – “Woke Up Dreaming”
From the New Album: http://joeb.me/JBCarnegie

 

Wow man, Joe’s really on a roll!

And Tina! WooHah! Never heard her before.

A cello is awesome – not so common in the Blues, eh!

This is good. Yup. The world needs more of these collaborations.

 

Peace

Power

I’ve known Doc online for ages from when he did an online video education type thing. It was a pleasure finding out he’s even more skilled as a blues keyboardist of some repute. This is his current gig—before Good Cookies he was with the Vincent Hayes Project. Hey here’s one of those for you : )

Samantha Fish | “Gone For Good” Live at Telluride Blues & Brews Festival

Samantha Fish is a force to be reckoned with. She blends polished guitar work and engaging vocals that cross genres from Blues to Rock to Country. Her guitar riffs are like flint on steel and her vocals go down smooth like a fine shot of whiskey. She delivered a stand-out performance on the Main Stage which many consider to be a highlight from the 2016 Festival. Watch her perform “Gone For Good” live from Telluride Blues & Brews Festival earlier this year on Sunday, Sept 18, 2016.

Oh God… Ms. Fish… is… wonderful.

This one was posted to a non-musical post I made on fb by my dear friend Frank, I think to soothe my battered soul!

He got me all excited of course, Miss Fish has that effect on me : )

She is so very good, a true master of the blues at such a young age and so very scrumptious to boot, what more could anyone ask for in a Goddess?

Hmmm?

Enjoy

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!’?

This is passion, this is power and this is drive. Oooh! Like this fella said on facebook’s Samantha Fish Fans page…

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!

Right?

Yeah Heah!

Enjoy,

Peace

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.
