    Default The real deal...

    After discovering Big Joe Turner, Little Richard, and Chuck Berry by playin with the radio dial (escaping "How Much Is That Doggie In The Window?")...

    John Hammond, Paul Butterfield, Blues Project and this took me to the next level of Blues passion:

    I met Steve Katz in an elevator once.
    Nice guy...he had a booth at the Philly Craft Show.
    I think he has a little Irish Music label or something in the outer 'burbs of NY.
    Killer player.
    I knew some folks who took lessons from Danny Kalb...wasn't he part of that gang?
    It was all over for me when I took my Jr. High girlfriend to see BTO around 1975 or 6 and Elvin Bishop warmed up.
    That and an album called "The Blues World of Eric Clapton."
    I think Shim Sham Shimmy (Champion Jack Dupree) was the first REAL Blues singing I ever heard and it knocked me dead!

    I was going through my old records recently and rediscovered that Blues Project album - great stuff, with a slight psychedelic and jazzy tinge. That instrumental "Flute Thing" is particularly good.

    Yeah, "Flute Thing"'s beautiful. Thanks for the reminder Gareth. Your appreciation for their mix of Blues, Rock, and Jazz...you may well know that they became Blood Sweat and Tears.

    BTW, I happen to have a strong Wales connection. When I was at University of Manchester my dealer (ancient history, I've been in recovery 29 years now) was from Cardiff. Me university mates and I have our reunion this April...in Ballycastle, south of Sligo County.

    Slainte,

    Doug
