IMO one of the best blues songs ever.




This song should have been called "The guitar is crying" cause he sure makes it cry in this song.

I'm not much of a blues guy but thought this might interest someone. R.I.P. Gary, shouldn't have had so much to drink that night.

Mellow My Mind---Simply Red
As the years go passing by---Jeff Healey Band

Sultry and soulful made me think of that Simply Red song immediately. Don't know if you'd call it Blues tho...

I posted this in another thread originally but the OP might be interested.

Very few people in the blues/rock arena play out of the same bleak spiritual landscape as Robert Johnson, but Roy Buchanan was one of them.

The introductory singing portion of this piece makes that point, but the instrumental excursion that follows is an encyclopedia of some of the sickest blues tones you will ever hear in one place and is very much in keeping with the idea of a man on the edge of sanity.

Roy's Bluz (From the album Livestock)

Roy Buchanan is a giant of American guitar. He's like the white Robert Johnson. His life story is pure Americana. He could be a character in a John Steinbeck novel. Why Hollywood has not made a biopic of this legendary guitarist's guitarist I don't know. There is so much drama in his life. I think PBS did a biography of him and there are parts of it on YouTube.

Here's another Buchanan cut, Sneaking Godzilla Through the Alley. I don't know if it is blues so much as a scream from the window of the insane asylum, but it is great music.

Son House! One of the founding fathers of delta blues; taught Robert Johnson at one time. Was rediscovered in the 60's by beatnik intellectuals, he had been sweeping up at a bus station for a living. At that time, he was one of the true heroes of the likes of the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. Also an obvious big influence on Jack White. He had a unique, mostly uneducated way of playing, stomping and singing, but it all comes together in the most amazing way. A real legit preacher of the blues, and I'm convinced that without Son House there would be no rock and roll.
