I've heard that Poker was his thing.

Agreed,  Jesse Ed Davis  was a great player,  some people think he copied Duane Allman  on Statesboro Blues,  it was the other way around,  Allman admitted it, he was a big fan of Jesse's.  Jesse

Nope.  And you don't even have to be black to PLAY the blues.   And that guitarist is ELVIN BISHOP, a decade before he fooled around and fell in love.   Whitefang  

Freddy was a great.  One of my faves from him also has a great cover done by Mick Taylor( on the Mayall's Bluesbreakers  "Crusade" LP)

Rabs,

I got to see Eric Clapton actually flub a note, I didn't think that was possible!

When you do that its now called Jazz.

I mentioned this earlier, so let's hear it now!  )Mick Taylor's cover of the Freddy King tune)

Y'know, I always liked Mick just a TAD more than Eric.  [wink]

Lot of Leon Russell on that one, too.

Leon produced that (and Gettining Ready) for his Shelter Records label.  It's good stuff.

Almost forgot about them, You just don't hear their stuff on the radio anymore.  As a teen, I played Grand Funk 8 tracks cruising up and down Broadway.

AC/DC blues

 

 

I always loved Ballbreaker. Not too many people seem to like that album, but I thought it was way better than The Razors Edge (the album before it) and better than the albums that followed it. Probably the last great AC/DC album in my opinion, although I do like Stiff Upper Lip, Black Ice and Rock or Bust...they're just not as good as Ballbreaker. I haven't heard the latest one yet though.

Good morning, I was up late getting everything done. Very busy day and we are leaving for South Dakota early this morning so I will do posts when I get back. Have a lovely week to all. After doing 100 yards of hedges yesterday, I need a break, Especially doing them in 84 degree weather and that super hot humidity, Lol.
