    Lil Ed must get his exquisite sense of fashion headgear from his uncle J.B. Hutto.



    This one rocks...

    Oooooh, those were good! Yes he talked about JB in a barely concealed reverence.

    Who knows (we make another run for it here as I am more passionate about Blues than I am Trad Country:twisted:)
    I was trying to find "Story of My Life" on youtube and couldn't. I'll make one. First heard that by Canned Heat with the Sunflower on sizzling guitar; and then 20 years later I heard the original and it was bliss.
    Meanwhile....back in the jungle:)


    And someone else who I always thought of Muddy's sideman until I heard his music after he left the greatest blues band that ever lived.

    Little Johnny Taylor

    Born Johnny Lamont Merrett in Gregory, Arkansas,[1] he is frequently confused with his contemporary and near namesake Johnnie Taylor, especially since the latter made a cover version of the song that Little Johnny Taylor was most famous for, "Part Time Love" (1963), and the fact that both men began their careers as gospel singers.

    Little Johnny Taylor moved to Los Angeles in 1950, and sang with the Mighty Clouds of Joy before moving into secular music. Influenced by Little Willie John, he first recorded as an R&B artist for the Swingin' record label.

    However, he did not achieve major success until signing for San Francisco-based Fantasy Records' subsidiary label, Galaxy. His first hit was the mid-tempo blues "You'll Need Another Favor," sung in the style of Bobby Bland, with arrangement by Ray Shanklin and [[record producer|produced by Cliff Goldsmith. The follow-up, "Part Time Love", became his biggest hit, reaching #1 in the U.S. Billboard R&B chart, and # 19 on the pop chart, in October 1963.

    Those look good, I'll get to them at sunrise:lol: Otis Rush is among my top 5 blues guitarists. He seems like an anachronism because he still plays and sounds like he did years ago; most people sound decidedly different when doing hits from their past.

    Little Johnny was cookin! BB Bland was nice too; his blues is a different kinda blue, don't you think?

    Here is a guy that I will post a lot more of, if this thread maintains some level of interest: The One Man Band:

    Thanks for that StephenX. And how 'bout some more slide guitar playing? I think this is a fine cut.

    This guy walking to the porch is more entertaining than many people on stage.

    Since I was 17, this cut from Mick Taylor has stayed high on the charts for me.

    Great Mayall tune; I've always been a big fan of John Mayall and his many lineups.

    Earl Hooker

    I really like the standard tuning slide of Earl Hooker, this may be the only valid use of a wahwah pedal in blues...

    Unfortunately there are 2 songs in this clip and it loads slow so you may have to start it and hit stop and come back in a minute.

    Magic Sam playing Earl Hooker's guitar... What's up with that?

    I been working on the break in the Magic Sam Boogie, I got some of it down but that certain stacatto phrasing escapes me. It is a boogie in A.

    What the heck was that guitar to the left of him with the crazy angle on the neck pup? Then there was the guy sitting next to him with what looked like a double neck Danelectro...WOW!!!
