If your into grassroots blues, one of my favorite artists is Blind Wille McTell from the late 1920's-1940's

This is what I listen to when I play poker, keeps me in an even temper! I got hooked on him in my teens and had, a rare album (before you tube lol) that I wore out! Youtube has alot of his songs, great to have access to so much.

Not bad stuff there....and yep,thats far back grassroots alright.....nothing wrong with that.

I have some cd's with some old stuff fromm B.B. King,Etta James,Buddy Guy,Junior Wells,Sippie Wallace,Albert King,Hubbert Sumlin,.....to name a few.

I enjoy all ages of the blues.

B.B.King ( along with Lucille ) my all-time fav....had the privilege to see him twice.....never will forget his performances.

Forever Habs #10:

Are you familiar with the work of blues artists John Lee Hooker and Howlin' Wolf (Chester Burnett)?

They were highly influential on Jim Morrison and the Doors. I can still hear them doing "Back Door Man," one of Burnett's most famous songs. The original versions of the songs the Doors covered were much different sounding, but fun to listen to.

Bayfest has really grown since it's humble beginings. Stokely, a local resturant owner who passed away last year, started the event. Each year the names get bigger and the venue gets larger. Originally it was a two day event, now it is eight days spread over two concecutive weekends. (Rock and Country). Held in Centenial Park on the Sarnia Bay, these shows are attended by over 20,000 people per show. This is amazing for our small city of 75,000.

I have a friend (habs fan extraordinaire) who is part of the sound crew and one year he got me a crew pass to assist him (getting his beers). For my trouble I got to see the reunion of Max Webster up in the security row, stage center! What a blast.

There is also a Labour Day Bash September 3,4 & 5, 2010. Some of the artistist attending are 54-40, The Trews, Doc Walker, Hinder, and Default.

Anyone who is intrested in this show can use this link to find out more.

alka seltzer, tang and a 50

it's all over ..........

I worked maintainance at a cafe years ago, On Father's day one year Kim Mitchell came in with his son and dad. My manager allowed me to take a break and ask for his autograph. He invited me to sit with then for a coffee. Down to Earth guy!!! We mostly talked about Bob Dylan because I was going to London, ON. that weekend to see him, and his boy said Dylan was one of his favorites. I wish I had told him that he was one of my Idols as a teen, but he likely caught on to that.

Double vision when the bars close down... B)

I have a box set of John Lee Hooker and a box set for Chester Burnett (Howlin' Wolf), but nobody else, although I'm somewhat familiar with some of them, especially BB King.

The Doors are a guilty pleasure of mine, but I haven't listened to them too much lately. I have most of their music, as well as all of Jim Morrison's poetry books. I actually met Ray Manzarek, their keyboardist, in 1990 or something like that, with Michael McClure, a poet friend of Morrison's. They did a poetry reading with Manzarek providing the musical background, and I got to talk to them afterward.

That being said, I will always be a huge Chicago and Dusty Springfield fan. Check her out - she was really into the African-American soul music of the 60s and 70s, and is definitely the inventor of the Blue-Eyed soul singer. Chicago also credits some of those artists, as well as blues artists, for being some of their earliest influences. Many of the greatest blues artists moved to Chicago from the South to live and record, and they were an early impact on the band, much like the classical composers were - Chicago woodwinds player Walt Parazaider credits Benny Goodman, James Pankow, the trombonist and brass arranger, credits Bach and Stravinsky. Matter of fact, the Ballet For A Girl In Buchannon, which yielded their first hit, Make Me Smile, also produced Colour My World, which was based on Bach's Brandenburg Concertos. The whole Ballet was based on Bach and other classic composers. You can find this on Chicago II.

Have you listened to An American Prayer - Jim Morrison (with the Doors furnishing background music)? It actually won a Grammy Award in 1976 - awards in 1977 for the previous year (I believe). It got lost in all the hoopla over Chicago's winning that year for If You Leave Me Now. Just about everything did that year. And there was lots of great music released in 1976. An American Prayer won in one of the lesser-known categories. It will blow your mind. Some of the stuff on that recording also appears in Morrison's poetry books.

At any rate, Manzarek and McClure appeared at a coffee house in Ann Arbor, and I got a copy of one of the Doors videos, and McClure's current poetry book at the time - Rebel Lions. Great stuff, if you get a chance to read it.
