OK, I admit it...I'm addicted to YouTube. :D

Here's one I just found...Chicago "I'm A Man", ca 1970. Incredible performance.

Great stuff, tks.

Great performance, could use a little more cow bell though. :D

Rob Z 06-23-2007 08:43 AM

Dave, don't get me started on the cowbell thing! :D

Im addicted to the Blues, so when I saw Rob's post, I thought it was someone from the Chicago Blues scene doing this song.....

Thanks so much...I'm glad to find a fellow blueshound. :) I went through a period in college where I wouldn't listen to anything else other than blues. The white guitar player in that video is Bob margolin-I saw him in college in a little tiny bar. I never got to see Muddy , however. :( I saw a few other legends before they passed on to the big BluesRoom in the sky. My favorite was John Lee Hooker, who I saw twice. :clap1:

Muddy still had the stage presence even as an old timer. And so did one of my favorites, Willie Dixon. I saw him with this band in another hole-in-the-wall bar while in college. After two pitchers of beer I got enoguh courage to go talk to him for a minute while he was off stage. :D

I was introduced to the Blues when my brother was recording Otis Rush at a club in Manhattan for a public radio show. I sat on the side of the stage while he performed, and BS'ed with him in the dressing room while he and his band got completely stoned between sets. I've never seen anyone smoke so much pot.

Ummm... I didnt inhale? :loaded:

Otis isnt really one of my favorite's however... The Mississippi AllStars are great, Derek Trucks is another good one, and for the old timers, I'd have to say Muddy and John Lee Hooker are my favorites.

Mark me down as a big blues fan - especially Chicago style.

Hamilton 06-24-2007 12:12 PM

Ive been a big fan of the blues since i was a kid. Then again i like all kinds
of music. I really like percussion, play congas and other assorted drums
and instruments myself. Some day i hope to be as good as David 'La Mole' Ortiz

For Fathers Day I received a CD "Bluesville" one of the Starbucks collection sold in the stores. It is real good with cuts from Albert King, Jimmy Witherspoon, Willie Dixon, Lightnin Hopkins, Big Jo Williams plus many others.

I think Lightnin Hopkins is on the top of my list right now. I just took a blues guitar class and I sure would like to be able to play just a little in his style.
For my birthday I got a Robert Joyhnson CD with every one of his recordings

ddmoit 06-24-2007 02:21 PM

I've got that Robert Johnson set - good stuff. And Lightning Hopkins? His playing can be unconventional - also good stuff.

I tried to find a YouTube clip of Muddy Waters performing Can't be Satisfied, but I couldn't find one.

Here's the treat for the day: Miles Davis with "So What", from my all-time favorite jazz album "Kind Of Blue". This was filmed in 1958.


ddmoit 06-25-2007 05:48 PM

Dang, Rob. I'm starting to sense a pretty big overlap in our musical tastes. That was a brilliant album.

Bri 06-25-2007 07:11 PM

Here's one for you guys. Canadian content of course. ;)


Rob Z 06-25-2007 07:17 PM


I chose that one because it is a wonderful performance of a great piece of music, but also because it was so interesting to see everyone standing around and watching whle others were playing.

One thing about that album is that all the songs except one were recorded on the first take, no rehearsal, and very little planning about what the musicians were going to do during the song.

When I started this thread I had no intention of anything other than sharing that great Chicago song, but after Splinter posted his link the Muddy Water's song it made me think how nice it would be if everyone posted links to their favorites at YouTube.
