review by me

Oh do I love this texas style swing boogie. You can tell right away that this release from 1971 influenced some great guitar players over the years and if 55th street boogie does not get one of your body parts moving to the beeat, then u must be dead.Most of houldogs songs are original but he does do covers of songs that are not his but are by one person only, James and he may be honmesick. Hound Dog Taylor's debut album and the first release for Alligator Records, is named and has no title. Its just a down right excellent version of what Mr. Taylor music was all about. the same

Buddy Guy-Heavy Love

The details and history of this album is not in my mental data base at the moment but i wanted to pass on my feelings about this. Buddy really can strut his stuff. Now I may not have the best listening system but I can tell sound engineering styles and even though the engineering is samm time, the musicianship is big time. Buddy usees his guitar to sing the words and if the songs have funk feels, then he funks it up and is its a slow heart breaking lead blues you really only hear the guitar and the back beat is definetly in the back ground. Buddy is a master.

maybe i will keep this up and my health will allow me to

agin I am sorry for the long delay but life has been hard on me. I GOT THE BLUES AND I AM LIVING THE BLUES. I have so much to share and my only wish is that I can keep it going better.

Mike Bloomfield - Live at Bill Graham's Fillmore West(1969)

boy does this bring back memories. I had the fortune to see this show live. We had no idea that it was going to be recorded and amongst the dancing, the drugs and the excitement, it is even amazing that I even remeber it. However, what i do remember one fantastic concert that i was pleased to be able to say that I saw Mike play live.
His history in the Chicago blues scene is well known and his respect in that same blues community put him in a class of some of the greatest white american bluesmen of his time. RIP Mike, his passing is a loss to blues lovers around the world and is an ungly example of what the sex drugs and rock and roll world that the 60-s brought forth and also put him in another class. The clas of dead great musicians fallen from grace and this planet but we still have great music to remind us of the better side to that world he/we lived. I cannot get the feeling out of me that when I listen to his music, I know John Belushi is singing with his band since there is a great comparisison between his music and the music the Blues Brothers made famous to the world
thanks for this goes to the torrent uploader, whom ever it is.
although I am using rapidshare this time, it is not my preference and until I find one that feel does not want to grab money from its users by restricting limits, it will post different updoading site until u the user let me know which one is best for us all.
