    Good choice with Percy Mudshark...here's a cover of one of Percy's best.



    Plus I dig Amos.

    Sunnyland Slim and Nicky Hopkins both tear it up. And I'd almost forgotten what a good blues singer Rod used to be. Thanks Mudshark.

    Here's one on horse racing...usually don't hear Willie sing so that's different.

    Country Meets Blues.

    I've often heard that Country and Blues are kissin' cousins.

    Great post Justatwanging-I believe that's Wayne Bennett on guitar. He played on all Bobby's releases on the Duke/Peacock label, including Here's the Man! from 1962.



    This is the version that turned Duane and Dicky's head.

    I once heard your fellow Texan Bugs Henderson say something like " Merle Haggard is a great Blues singer and if you don't get that then oh well".

    Totally agree.

    Mudshark, Elvin Bishop played some mean-a$$ guitar. Thanks, I've never heard that.

    More Snooks- I just love this guy's tone.

    Gatemouth Brown put on one of the best shows I've ever seen.

    Dave Mason on the other guitar

    I thought that was him,at the end the show a good face shot. Dave does not get enough respect around here I tell you what. An excellent guitar, singer , songwriter. He played acoustic on Hendrix's all along the watch tower. Played on countless great albums and with the very best Beatles, Stones, Jimi, Eric, CSN&Y beside being one of the members of traffic.

    I saw him in 74 I think and little feat opened for them. First time I heard of Little Feat. They were great but Dave brought the house down in a smoking heap with his own version of Watchtower played on reverse fire bird with mini buckers. Some of the VERY Best guitar tone I have ever heard.
