LOL! Pretty sure that's a Star Trek gif! 
I heard this little piece of a musical marvel for the first time here, on Radio Paradise. It is by far the most hypnotizing tune I've heard for quite some time and the only one here (at least for now) I rated "Outstanding".

You love Star Wars, do you?

The Blues and Mr. Manx have a future, even in Star Trek, as seems obvious.

Removes all the grit from this song, and yet it sounds great.  Blues works however you do it.

You need to be more specific; is it the high E string or the low E string?
Bills been rolling out some great tracks one right after the other this fine October Friday evening! Thanks Bill!
Harry is playing Merrickville tonight.

Mr. Manx himself, using one of those Dylan-style harp holders.
Isn't this just "Bring That Thing Back Home" with different lyrics? Or is it the other way around?

All scotches, bourbons, and ryes are whiskies but not all whiskies are scotches, bourbons, and ryes.

True, and apparently Rye (whiskey) didn't get invited to the party?
Tasty tune, btw.

Really?  Almost too real for Archer.  Doesn't most of their music have to be somewhat shallow and self-absorbed?   Not a diss; I love Archer.

live or Memorex, manx is majic.......{#Guitarist}
I've had the good fortune to see this man on a couple of continents and he has the ability to slightly change the song every performance without altering its essence.
He is indeed a serious musician.

Of all of the different music that's in the world, and of all the different kind of blues played on RP, i don't think I've heard a Johnny Winter song played. Let's hear any Winter brother song.

Funny, was thinking the same thing the other day but hard to squeeze in amongst the 81 x U2!! {#Cheesygrin}

This album is phenomenal.  A desert island entree for sure, and that's all thanks to RP.
Groovin while drivin in slow traffic...perfect

It's OK.  Not nearly as good as other versions I've heard.
I'll be dog.  What an interesting take on the old classic.

Good Evening, Bill.   umm, what he said. Specifically the 3 sided album "Second Winter" that he did with Edgar.The coolest track is  'Hustled Down in Texas' on side three (sandwiched in between 'I Love Everybody' and 'I Hate Everybody').

It takes a brave individual to admit to having owned such a thing

Yes, please. Johnny's DNA is in every Texas Blues artist's work.


I think this has to be listened to in context. So many (blues) artists don't play by setlists, they just play whatever they feel like. So when you're attending a concert it's always pretty cool when an artist comes up with a cover of a cool song, it's always surprising.

For radio purposes, i agree these covers aren't always suitable...
Though i really like Harry's take on this one...

Sorry, don't think this version adds much to previous efforts. As much as he gets reviled on RP by posters, how about Van Morrison's version? Also, Muddy Waters does a pretty good little version hisself!
 
Agree, VM created a timeless effort of this song.

There is so much weak white boy blues played out here yet for some odd reason we never hear the best in breed, Johnny Winter.

Different—- Versions that I am familiar with are usually a driving boogie! 

I personally like Harry's second CD "Wise & Otherwise"   What he does with the blues is unique to say the least. He alone has brought Indian music together with the blues. No small feat and not to take anything away, but to contribute. To breath new life into it, I personally love it. High marks to this guy for originality. I'm a recording engineer, I dig the hell out of his playing. 
I like this...Does anyone have a recommendation for which album to buy?

That is exactly right.

I'd never heard of Harry Manx before listening to RP. This guy is cool. I will definitely check out his CDs.
So much for the urgency the lyrics suggest. Must be the qualude version...
I could use this song sometime :guitarist:
