R.I.P. Bobby Blue Bland

Another piece of the musical history of my youth has passed. He will be missed, though his music and his magnificent voice will live on.

A nice short piece on his life…BLUES GREAT BOBBY BLUE BLAND DEAD AT 83.

My deepest appreciation to Mr. Bland for sharing his gift of music with us, and my deepest condolences to his family and loved one’s.

*Post Script-This was my 300th post*

Thursday Open

In the end (it doesn’t even matter, does it Mrs. Clinton?)

The Blues is Alright

I grew up in Jackson, MS aka the Crossroads of the South, the home of MALACO Records and their homegrown label, Chimneyville Records.

King Floyd’s “Groove Me” was a huge hit for the label in the early 70’s, and it was kind of cool to know that R&B hits were recorded just down the street, and even cooler to say one of your friends played background horns for King Floyd, or Jean Knight’s “Mister Big Stuff”, Little Milton’s “The Blues is Alright”, and my personal favorite — any of a half dozen tunes from ZZ Hill including this nugget “Someone Else Been Stepping In.”

The magic behind Malaco, the “Creole Beethoven”,  passed away almost two years ago. RIP Wardell. You made a difference

Jones

Momma didn’t care much for George “Possum”  Jones.

His songs were about bars, honky tonks, women of questionable virtue, and (gasp) drinking.  Eddie Arnold was more her type.

But, I liked me some Jones.  That unmistakeable voice that was Jones.

This is one of many songs by The possum, and it’s one of my favorites.

RIP.

Sunday Night Synthesizer

Emerson, Lake & Palmer …   one of the great ‘headphone bands’ of the 70’s.

 

I had never heard of the Moog synthesizer before this song.  When it comes in towards the end of the song, it really makes you want to turn it up loud!  And, having a good set of headphones makes that possible, without waking up th neighborhood.  Heh.

 

This is Lucky Man.
