Most definitely.  Wow, bokes, thanks for posting—I thoroughly enjoyed that one. I love watching his face while he plays—-so blissed out and in that "zone." He makes it look so frickin easy, doesn't he? I can't believe he can let go and just play with his left hand—since all I've ever played is acoustic, I'm trying to think of how that's even possible! And wouldn't you love to be the guy playing rhythm guitar with him?

WOW. {#Notworthy}

Quote: Prematurely taken from this world, Magic Sam may have had the talent to become the greatest exponent of West Side Blues, perhaps even eclipsing both Otis Rush and Buddy Guy.
We will never know, yet more than 30 years following his death, the music of Magic Sam still remains vital and alive to this day.




Freddie King's Boogie Funk, based on Magic Sam's Boogie. Freddie King played some
time in Magic Sam's band. Both died of a heart attack (age 42 and 32) and didn't live
long enough to know how influential they would become. I read that Freddie King
played about 300 gigs a year, until his death.



Tremendous version of Going Down (5:20), as well, BTW.  No mistake about it, not even in this poor sound quality.

Phils Folk Fest had an acoustic blues workshop on Sunday morning. Tom Rush, Jorma Kaukonen, Bavid Bromberg and Roy Book Binder. Freakin awesome.
 
There were 2 other groups involved, but they didn't belong on the same stage with these gods.

I heard a superb recording of this on XM's "Bluesville" on the way home tonight....I don't think this is quite the one, but close. I absolutely loved the reverb on the guitar as it sings out its little riffs, and the wandering bassline in other parts....and it was very, very crisp.

lol, blues can definitely be more about the music than the lyrics - and I think you've got the advantage on 12a

- but sometimes lyrics don't have to be complicated to smoke:

I don't want you to be no slave
I don't want you to work all day
I don't want you to be true
I just want to make love to you

I don't want you to wash my clothes
I don't want you to keep my home
I don't want your money too
I just want to make love to you

Well I can see by the way that you switch and walk
And I can tell by the way that you baby talk
And I know by the way that you treat your man
I wanna love you baby, it's a cryin' shame

I don't want you to bake my bread
I don't want you to make my bed
I don't want you cause I'm sad and blue
I just want to make love to you


 
You might want to look at rule #8, but if you can get by that, you just might have a hit.

jimmie vaughan is coming in early october. i'm thinking about getting a ticket.

 

He played near me about 6 months ago - could not get tickets for the night I could go - I was bummed.  I think he's an underappreciated guitar player - I bet his show would be great! Hope you can get a ticket.
