Turns out I start a lot of blog posts with "Oh." How great is the bloc party full length? Man, I gotta see these kids live soon. I fell behind with sending mix cds out again, but everyone's will be in the mail Monday morning, hopefully it hasn't been too much of an ordeal. I should of charged more money, so less people would have ordered or something, but I'm not sure how I feel about charging for someone else's work.


(Roosevelt Sykes and Big Mama Thorton)

Roosevelt Sykes is often considered one of the happier blues musicians, but I think for my first Sykes track I'm going to post a sadder track "Henry Ford Blues." Sykes was one of Decca's biggest recording artist which enabled him to travel across America as well as Europe. His style however, is very much rooted in the Boogie-Woogie style of piano playing that Meade Lux Lewis, Albert Ammons and himself (as well as others) help develop out of more traditional St. Louis style piano blues. Sykes is really alone in his piano playing skill, he's one of the absolute best, and unlike Lewis or other great piano players has a wonderful voice and is a very clever and original songwriter.

    I once saw her perform at a Howling Wolf show in Waterloo, Ontario. She arrived late because she took the Grey Coach from Detroit and it got stuck in snow on the highway. All she had with her was a large knit handbag...full of harmonicas!11/18/2005 07:39:39 AM|||Anonymous|||Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!
