RE: The Blues Thread




Anyone remember Jimi for his blues? Although he's usually remembered as the rocker setting fire to the strat at monterey, he's a fine bluesman...

Music is my religion

Here's Son House's more or less original Delta version:





And here's what Cassandra Wilson does with it:
Enjoy!

I can't do what ten people tell me to do, so I guess I'll remain the same, listen ...




Wow, Girly! That's why you're my hero (well, if I had heroes Wink) And here I was, convinced this song couldn't (and shouldn't) possibly be covered. But man, am I glad I was wrong! Words don't do it justice. Thank you so much, Girly, for helping me discover Roger Ridley and Grandpa Elliott... (even if it makes me want to weep that I live in a world where the likes of Rhianna and Miley Whatsherface are millionaires and household names and those guys are street performers... and then again, maybe it's better this way...)

"Look like nothing's gonna change
Everything still remains the same.
Sittin' here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone..."

Truer words have rarely been spoken. Or sung.

RE: The Blues Thread
No, I don't want to do it slow either, Nina...




"They keep on saying "Go slow!"
But that's just the trouble
"do it slow"
Washing the windows
"do it slow"
Picking the cotton
"do it slow"
You're just plain rotten
"do it slow"
You're too damn lazy
"do it slow"
The thinking's crazy
"do it slow"

Picket lines
School boycotts
They try to say it's a communist plot
All I want is equality
for my sister my brother my people and me

Oh but this whole country is full of lies
You're all gonna die and die like flies
I don't trust you any more
You keep on saying "Go slow!"
"Go slow!"

But that's just the trouble
"do it slow"
Desegregation
"do it slow"
Mass participation
"do it slow"
Reunification
"do it slow"
Do things gradually
"do it slow"
But bring more tragedy
"do it slow"
Why don't you see it
Why don't you feel it
I don't know
I don't know

You don't have to live next to me
Just give me my equality...
