Inspired by Abigail's Folk Rock thread, I thought I'd start a Blues Club to showcase and enjoy everything Blues Music. Be it original Robert Johnson to the hard electric of Led Zeppelin to modern Blues artists like Robert Cray and Beth Hart, the Blues are played and talked about in this smoky basement venue (this Blues Club itself is an ode to the Highway 99 Blues Club in Seattle which had to unfortunately close do to the dismantling of the U.S. 99 viaduct after it was rerouted through a tunnel.). So if you are a fan of Blues music, feelfree to share your favourites!

A few of mine are linked above, and first up on stage is this fine collection of restored recording from the 20's, 30's and 40's....

Billie holiday,Bessie Smith, muddy waters and the king of the blues Robert Johnson.

Yes! All grand Blues artists!
A track from each plays on the Blues Club juke box from Lakota Sioux Warrior's dollar bill...

Billie Holiday
Bessie Smith
Muddy Waters
Robert Johnson


...and if you thought Jimi Hendrix owned it doing the song 'Hey Joe',
I say listen to Otis Taylor's cut. This vid has a lot of vintage photos in it as well.

I love this exchange between Buddy Guy and Samantha Fish back in June! Buddy is looking good for his age!

Play some Etta James.

Yeah! I hear ya baby! We have Etta James in the house tonight! 'Get Down!'

Digging way back here. Robert Johnson is fairly well known. His recording sessions went over a day or two in the 1930's and the wire recorders did a great job of capturing and preserving the legend.

But there were other bluesmen recorded before Robert. Check these two recordings out from the 1920's! They were recorded direct to disk so the sound quality is about what was normal for the day.



This one is for you Lakota!


Now something a bit newer that really is the blues... Love Lightning Hopkins voice and guitar playing!
