    Default Early Blues and heavy rock

    Welcome AB. When I listen closely to Robert Johnson I hear Led Zep.

    Of all the old guys I think I like Son House the best for his recordings in the 30s/very early 40s before he disappeared. Back then his Parmount recordings are awesome. He had a rhythmic drive that Robert Johnson and Charlie Patton didn't have. He was a very good player, especially compared to what he did after rediscovery in the 60s.

    Favorite song: Last Kind Words by Geeshie Wiley. Check it out if you aren't familiar with it. It's not a straight 12-bar and it is as emotionally deep as you can get.

    Amazing....what's she got? 6 recordings, or something?
    Maybe 9...I forget.
    Great singer and equally great mystery!
    Loves me some Lucille Bogan, too!

    Maybe four songs total, with two sung by her and two sung by the other woman who's name I can't recall here away from my collection. The other song sung by Geeshie is Pick Poor Robin Clean or something like that. I just think Last Kind Words is so haunting; it draws me back to that time the way no other song does. I think the story is the two women were singing partners to some degree and traveled together to Paramount and each got two sides. Back then Son House and Charlie Patton and other Paramount artists went to a studio in Wisconsin somewhere.

    Been loving the couple of Poor Bill tracks that are floating around recently, his guitar is very Son House. And also Arthur Petties, love the way he finds space in between his vocal lines.
