I was sad Amy Winehouse passed on because she had R+B soul in her soul. Perry sent me this link of the Trucks - Tedeschi Band and I have played it every day because it's beautiful:



Please slather this thread with Warren Haynes, Drive By Truckers, Nashvile Pussy and anyone else you can think of !

To my ears, the Satellites were the best rockNroll band, southern or otherwise, ever to make it out of a garage. At some point they prepended "Georgia" to their name and their gimmick tune hit the big time for a few minutes. I can't really justify my claim and I'm biased, having more or less learned how to drink while watching them in dive bars. I think maybe you had to be there.

Still, this sounds sort of like it.

Yes, Nita

Los Lobos - I tend to think outside The Box, like Riley. They've got the feeling - Southern (California) Rock and Blues - see what I mean?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjCdt2s74Zs&feature=related


David Hidalgo - surely one of the most talented virtuosos out there - fiddle, classical guitar, accordion, steel string, Telecaster blues, Mariachi, vocals. The guy's a giant among musicians.

Somebody brought up the question of just what "Southern" means. Does the South Side of Chicago count? If so, then you just gotta listen to Hound Dog Taylor. Not much available on YouTube, cuz the Hound passed on in 1975, and there isn't much good video available. You can get a taste here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdXdsyDJC5Y&feature=watch_response

Absolutely inimitable style, and, interestingly, the reason why Alligator Records came to be in the first place.

**And just as sweetly stating the case of an Angel From Montgomery:

**

Ooo, I gotta check this out when I get home. Angel from Montgomery is my favorite John Prine song. Bonnie Raitt also does a very nice version.

Love the bands that have been mentioned here, especially Drive-By Truckers, Son Volt (Jay Farrar, you are the man) and Lucinda (she is the single greatest female artist since Aretha -- you want a rockin' tune, check out "Seeing Black" from her latest album, an ode to Vic Chestnutt, with Elvis Costello playing guitar). Would add the Old 97's, Uncle Tupelo, The Knitters, Dave Alvin, The Gourds, Old Crow Medicine Show, Jason Isbell (& The 400 Unit), Dave Rawlings, Ryan Adams (esp. the Whiskeytown stuff) and the Mac Daddy of them all -- I don't care if he is from Canada -- NEIL YOUNG.

One last thing -- on Warren Haynes: not long after 9/11 (I was in lower Manhattan at the time), he was in studio at a local NYC station with DJ legend Scott Muni, and played a solo acoustic version of "Soulshine." Still gives me goosebumps recalling it.

Susan Tedeschi played in a local bar here way back in 91, after playing in Atlanta the night before. A mere 21 year old wailing on that blue telecaster and singing like an angel. I've seen her twice since then. Each New Year the Trucks & Tedeschi Band leads the celebration at the Fox in Atlanta.

Nita: actually 13 rows back, to be exact...something about being on the side makes it look like we're closer than we were, but still = lucky me.

Tobia: it was at the Bank of America Pavilion in Boston. Quite possibly ranks #1 on my list of shows, all time...I was absolutely blown away by Tedeschi & Trucks. And, the venue is fabulous, even more so than I previously knew because...

We "lost" the printed copy of our tickets -- they were sitting on the kitchen table when we got home -- and for a few minutes we were really feeling the blues before they even started playin' the blues.

I remembered my iphone, however. And, the folks at the gate let us in after I showed them the e-ticket. But, what made it even cooler was that they still let us in when their little scanner thing kept rejecting the bar code on the ticket image.

When we got to our seats, we discovered why the phone image was getting rejected. A couple had been sold the exact same seats as us! It turned out that the folks at the pavilion were VERY cool and, in fact, said that we were far from the first people to have encountered this problem. The other couple volunteered to move, presumably to just as good of seats.

It's crazy to think we could've missed that show -- super huge props to the ushers and gate folks at the pavilion for taking it all in stride and letting all enjoy!!!

[Side note: We bought the tics from Ticketfast@ticketsnow.com, where we were directed from the venue web page. Never gonna use that service again.]

I've seen that statue to the Boll Weevil in Enterprise Ala. It's just outside of Fort Rucker Alabama, where I went to air traffic control school in 1974.

While we were there we hitchhiked over to Mississippi to see an outdoor concert of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker, and the Allman Brothers (sans Duane). I was standing right up front when Marshall Tucker took the stage and watched Toy Caldwell do his magic with that thumnail of his.

Here's a vid of him, later with Charlie Daniels doing Can't You See.

Yes klk, my great great gandaddy invented the blues.

http://jasobrecht.com/blues-origins-spanish-fandango-and-sebastopol/


Kidding of course, but he did have a strong influence according to Ry Cooder and John Renbourn


From the article:

Credit for this research goes to John Renbourn, esteemed British fingerstyle guitarist and avid student of American parlor guitar. In 1992, John sent me the copies of “Spanish Fandango” and “Sebastopol” shown in this blog, along with these revelations: “I have many other parlour pieces in open tunings from around the same time. I am in the process of comparing these with early recorded ‘folk’ versions to see how much of the originals have been retained. It looks as if a great deal has been retained, so much so that these old pieces seem to me to have laid the foundation for the emerging blues and fingerpicking guitar styles. ‘Sebastopol’ and ‘Spanish Fandango’ were both outstandingly popular solo pieces and their availability in print continued beyond the turn of the century. It seems clear that these pieces lent their names to the folk terms ‘Spanish,’ for open-G tuning, and ‘Vastopol’ for open D or open E. But the connections are not limited to the tunings, they go on in terms of harmonic content and even specific right-hand patterns.

I only learned this from internet research recently, as my grand father died when I was young, and my father left the family when I was even younger. I have played guitar since I was 8 yrs old, and only just discovered this nearly 50 years later.

Henry Worrall also carved the Kansas State seal, and has many illustrations of early life in Kansas in the Kansas State Historical Museum.

my grandma was a music teacher-- piano, guitar, and hawaii'an guitar before the southern baptists made her quit the devil's work. but my mom still has a hawaii'an guitar. it's usually in vastapol d.

it's funny, I always had a good feel for those tunings, not unusual I know, but it does feel like it's in my blood.

when I learned the story, I got an extra amount of pleasure learning those two songs.

I read he sold the music for about fifteen dollars, and the publisher made about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars selling them around 1875. if true, I also inherited Henry's business acumen....

Good material for a blues song perhaps?

Tobia,

Thanks for the links to Sean Costello and Tinsley Ellis. I've got Pawnbroker playing right now and will enjoy Wet Willie next. This is all new tunes to me.

The Johnny Dowd song Easy Money is about a kid who idolizes his evil Viet Nam veteran uncle. It's pretty intense and not like Rickie Lee Jones' song. I just tried Dowd's own website and I think it's on one of his albums but he doesn't have a search option by song title. If you can find the compilation CD - Tom Waits' Jukebox from Uncut Magazine, it's track 13.

This is a set up of mine from one of the Skynryd shows I did back in the mid 90's with my first rig; the JBL Concert Series, the gray fiberglassed boxes and the double 18" subs. This was the second location on Big Mountain we had for concerts, all of them problematic with the lack of level ground at that resort. I remember them coming on and in the first or second song, one of the front fill boxes that you can barely see attached to the lighting truss burst into flames as the front of house engineer toasted all the 15" low frequency drivers in those fills, which were not electronically limited in those days for speaker protection. Oh well, we didn't need those fill boxes anyway with the Concert Series stacked high.

I bought this album in high school. Loved it. Still listen to half the songs.

I recently saw an on-line comment that nailed it. "This album is Charlie Daniels best music... before he decided to redneck it up".

Hi all! I've been looking into blues/folk/bluegrass festivals around SoCal and looks like there are several going on this summer. Does anyone have any recommendations for specific festivals to attend to help narrow down the options? Thanks in advance!

Sentimentality is the critic’s enemy, but it was an emotion impossible to avoid a week ago Tuesday at what had been announced as the Allman Brothers Band’s final show. Even for a marginal fan like me, the finale was a powerful affirmation of how, at two stages of its disjointed 45-year career, the Allmans were rock’s pre-eminent live band, marrying electric blues, modal jazz and what came to be known as Southern rock.

The concert took place at the Beacon Theatre, where the group had played some 230 shows since 1989, and it was filled with fans for whom the Allmans could do no wrong. But even the band’s most rabid supporters have to acknowledge the Allmans’ spotty history. It began in 1969 in Jacksonville, Florida, with a band comprised of Duane and Gregg Allman and four other musicians, and continued over the next several decades with the deaths of some members, the integration of new members, break-ups and reunions, and a number of memorable recordings.

I began following them in earnest in ’70, but lost interest in ’73 after the release of “Eat A Peach,” which contained great guitarist Duane Allman’s last work prior to his death two years earlier. Afterward, the bite and daring that had been abundant under his whip-crack leadership was only an occasional presence, as second guitarist Dickey Betts moved the group toward country rock.

In ’89, Warren Haynes joined the Allman Brother Band, giving it a guitarist who approached Duane Allman’s talent; and as a vocalist, he was almost equal to Gregg Allman, an exceptional blues singer who continued to man the keyboards. Mr. Betts departed bitterly; and with Mr. Haynes and Derek Trucks, who joined in ’99, the band’s core was once again a formidable guitar duo. I would entertain the thought that this generation of the Allman Brothers Band could challenge the original. That final lineup, which also featured drummers and founding members Jai Johanny Johanson and Butch Trucks as well as bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quiñones, was together for 14 years, the longest tenure of any Allman Brothers’ lineup.

I began to look forward to the Allmans’ Beacon runs, and after each concert would tell friends about what I’d heard. When they would ask what had been the best song that night, I’d reply that that was like asking about the best frame around a picture in an art gallery. No matter how well crafted and feverishly sung by Messrs. Allman or Haynes, the songs served to introduce dazzling instrumental improvisations, with melodic solos building at breakneck speed that were supported by exemplary communication among Mr. Burbridge and the percussionists. Though I had savored Weather Report and the best Santana bands in concert, I would listen in amazement during the whirlwind at Allmans shows and think, “This kind of music cannot be played better than is being done right now.”

Though long departed, Duane Allman was present at the Beacon Theatre finale. Three of his guitars were on hand for Messrs. Haynes and Trucks to use, and the band’s opening medley kicked off with his composition “Little Martha.” As if his spirit was driving the band—at that moment, such things seemed possible—they ripped through three sets. The interaction between the guitarists was uncanny, and a fierce, friendly competition emerged, especially in a reading of “Black Hearted Woman” that included a section from the Grateful Dead’s “The Other One.”

Young Mr. Trucks took the first solo during “Blue Sky” before stepping aside for Mr. Haynes, who played tight, bop-like notes before concluding with a repeating motif so Mr. Burbridge and the drummers could move percussion to the fore. Revisiting its familiar renditions of songs by Willie Cobbs, King Curtis, Elmore James and Sonny Boy Williamson, but with added heat, the band cemented its place in the pantheon of great American blues artists. Sitting at stage right behind the Hammond B-3 organ, Gregg Allman growled and excelled on his classic compositions including “Midnight Rider” and “Melissa,” the latter a Duane Allman favorite that on this occasion was performed with the lights out.

Fittingly, the show pushed into the early hours of the 43rd anniversary of Duane Allman’s death, ending at 1:25 a.m. It was pure coincidence. The finale had originally been scheduled for March but was postponed owing to Gregg Allman’s bronchitis.

After the third-set encore closed with “Whippin’ Post,” Gregg Allman addressed the audience from center stage and made it clear the long journey of the Allman Brothers Band was over. The musicians hugged behind the drum kits, and then returned to play Muddy Waters’ “Trouble No More,” the first song the original lineup had performed in rehearsal on March 26, 1969.

And then the end. Too soon the luscious warmth of the experience gave way to the realization that never again would the Allman Brothers Band make incomparable improvisational music. I realized then that the glow of memory would not suffice: I wanted to hear them do it again.
