Big Bill Broonzy – Key To The Highway (cover)

With my new Gibson Keb Mo’ Bluesmaster.

Any good acoustic songs? I’m an acoustic person but I’m not into country. I like stuff like Chase Coy. Stephen Jerzak. Christofer drew stuff. Songs that have meaning.

Going to California, by Zepplin. And Bob Dylan has very meaningful acoustic songs. Like Tomorrow is aLong Time, Masters of War, Blowing in the Wind, etc. Neil Young is also great. His album Rust Never Sleeps is half Folk, Half Alternative, and some stuff in between. My My, Hey Hey (Into The Blue) is a good accoustic song by him. As his Heart of Gold and Old Man. His best Album is Harvest, which is accoustic. Johnny Cash is realy good, but his songs can be rather country ish. Van Zandt is amazing in general.

What are some good blues songs? since my baby left me
“Hard Time Killing Floor Blues,” by Skip James. Chris Thomas King covered this song for the movie, O Brother Where Art Though, and he did a wonderful job with it as well.If you want modern blues, I like “Alone,” by Susan Tedeschi.

Soul Man The Blues BrothersThe Thrill Is Gone (1969 Single Version) B.B. KingRiding with the King B.B. King & Eric ClaptonBorn Under a Bad Sign Albert King

Anything by Big Bill Broonzy,Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee,Charley Patton,Tampa Red ,Memphis Minnie,Howlin’ Wolf,Bo Diddley,Big Mama Thornton.Songs like Key to the Highway,Baby Please Don’t Go,Bring it On Home To Me,Sail Away,Hound Dog,Killin’ Floor,Smokestack Lightnin’.Sonnyboy Williamson,Willie Dixon,Muddy Waters..Some of this is country blues and some is electric or Chicago blues.If you listen to Big Mama sing “Hound Dog “,the lyrics make a lot more sense than when Elvis Presley sang them.If you listen to Sonnyboy Williamson singing “Bring It On Home To You”,the lyrics make sense as compared to the incoherent babbling in Led Zeppelin’s cover intro.

the thrill is gone: B.B. King TEXAS flood: Stevie Ray Vaughn Crossfire: the Vaughn Brothers Tuff Enuff: the Fabulous Thunderbirds and, anything by Muddy Waters.

Geez, where to begin. “Spoonful”, “Boom Boom”, “House Rent Boogie”, “Dimples”, “One Bourbom, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Smokestack Lightning”, “Hoochie Koochie Man”, “Crossroads”, “Me & The Devil Blues”, “Got My Mojo Working”, “44”, “Juke”.

But, of course, bands and artists such as Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and so forth can and is considered to be the blues.

You know Baby, the Blues are a personal thing. We all have our favorites but it has to be what the song says to you. Personally, the old Black Blues from the 1920’s are my favorite, leading into Billy Holiday’s time period, then Ella, BB King.Can’t recall who first sang “Make Me a Pallet On Your Floor,” but t’ me, now, that’s a perfect Blues number. Taj Mahal released his own version in the past few years, I believe. What a sweet, sorrowful sound – like that rich, brown, oozy sap sliding down an Autumn sugar maple. Let your ears tell you what Blues numbers are the best. They will never lie to you. Love to you.

Try some Buddy Guy.Damn Right I’ve Got the Blues is an excellent album! Back in time a bit, I love Willie Dixon, Robert Johnson, and Son House. Cream did Crossroads, an arrangement of Robert Johnson’s Crossroad Blues. Gov’t Mule has covered some of Son House’s material. Great stuff!
