The Blues
« on: August 11, 2011, 08:26:30 AM »

After learning yesterday that one of our own just discovered Slim Harpo, it's apparent that we've been delinquent in this area.

To that end, for novice bluesmen, start with:

Any Chess artist
Blind Willie McTell and Robert Johnson, for the roots.
T-Bone Walker, and his musical sons, Albert Collins & Johnny Copeland
The Three Kings (Freddie, Albert, B.B.)
Elmore James
Johnny Winter

Any other good starting points, add here.

Clapton is the most boring guitarist alive, but his crossroads festival has some incredible blues going on.
Not sure if he's having it again, but if he is, go. It's that good.

The DVDs have a lot of legends on it.

I get it, it's Clapton - but nothing in the world could make me listen to that asshole's music on purpose.

Chicago reader is doing their own version of Groupon apparently.  Yesterday, the deal was $25 to spend at Rosa's for $12.  Fuck yeah.

That is absolutely staggering."
