Dark Cloudy Blues
Posted in 1920s,Country Blues,Honey on 11.28.06

Thanksgiving here at Honey HQ went well – and no turkeys were hurt in the process. Several pumpkin pies weren’t as lucky. Locust St. Has made it up to 1986 in his latest series of time traveling posts – and posted one of my favorite Mekons songs in the process – the whole series has been great – and the last few posts are still up.

Sometimes I get a certain tune stuck in my head for days on end – and today its Dark Cloudy Blues by Sam Collins – one of the greatest blues singers and guitar players this world has ever known. It’s really sad that both collections of his songs are out of print and fetch silly prices on the ‘net. I’m thinking about making it a download on the site – but I’m not sure if the lawyers would be chopping at my bit for that.

Now I know why they called him “cryin'” sam collins, it sounds like he’s gonna start crying when he sings. This is GREAT stuff.

See ya!

I’m pretty sure you could get away with it – who would be looking to sue you?
