    A little more Magic Sam...



    and some more "risque blues"





    I know this is an Elmore James tune but we should have at least a couple more pages of Freddie King...



    What else you got people? We're off to a great start here...:D

    Can't believe I forgot this one!



    She's my ****-eyed consumption, Sarah Jane
    Oh, she's my darlin', my daisy
    She's knock-knee'd an she's crazy
    She's bandy-legged, pigeoned toed
    She don't wear no under clothes
    Some folks say her breath smells sweet
    But I would rather to smell her feet
    She's my darlin' consumption, Sarah Jane

    She's a puffin' an blowin', Sarah Jane
    She's a puffin' an blowin', Sarah Jane
    She's a puffin' an blowin' an-a sweatin' an-a goin'
    She's my darlin' consumption, Sarah Jane

    She's all pushed out, Sarah Jane
    She's all pushed out, Sarah Jane
    An her head pushed out, an her belly pushed in
    She looks very well for the shape she's in
    But she's my darlin' consumption, Sarah Jane

    She's a puffin' an blowin', Sarah Jane, yeah
    She's a puffin' an blowin', Sarah Jane
    She's a puffin' an blowin' an-a sweatin' an-a goin'
    She's my darlin' consumption, Sarah Jane.

    Was doing some more research and found out that Pat Hare (mentioned earlier by Big Mike) actually did murder his girlfriend.

    "Yes, I'm gonna murder my baby (yeah, I'm tellin' the truth now) 'Cause she don't do nothin' but cheat and lie".

    "Usual run-of-the-mill blues lyrics, you might be forgiven for thinking. And you'd be quite right... were it not for the fact that guitarist Pat Hare, who wrote and recorded "I'm Gonna Murder My Baby" in May 1954, then took the song's message a step further and killed his girlfriend in mysterious circumstances eight years later." Refence link: http://www.rockabilly.nl/references/messages/pat_hare.htm

    I'm Gonna Murder My Baby


    Well in that case, how bout some more Lightnin' Hopkins:



    And here's a REALLY AWESOME tune that shows a bunch of different guitar styles and pays tribute to several of the guys we've already mentioned. A Course Summary in one song!

    "a four seconds piano intro straight into the strangest potpourri of styles I ever heard on a blues record: Jimmy Reed boogie on the guitar, 2 saxes playing the same riff over and over no matter what the changes were, a drummer playing totally offbeat with the rest of the band, except for the rolls, and a singer that sounded like the bastardson of Big Boy Crudup and Litttle Anthony, from the Imperials" Cub Koda

    Great posts guys! Bunch of stuff I'd never heard of...

    Urizen - That Blue Smitty track is awesome.

    EllroyJames - Superb sir. I need more of that.

    twintwelve - great stuff that hasn't been posted yet..keep it up!

    Chris Clemens - that whole album is awesome.

    dmarg1045 - "body and fender man" has to be one of the best song titles ever.
