    The Real Hound Dog

    Willie Mae "Big Moma" Thornton recorded the definitive version of Hound Dog in 1952. As the song's writers Leiber and Stroller said: The song was about a woman telling off a man who was trying to pimp her.  The song didn't make any sense when Elvis sang it.  Big Moma's version...

    Smokey Rooms

    I love the blues. There used to be this little club, hardly more than a corner bar compared to some. But you walked down some steps to get to the door and then down a couple more to actually enter the room. silly jarred candles on all the tables. most were tables for two or four...

    A Love Affair With Music

    It's true that i love the blues- but more true that i love all music.  You see I've spent a lot of time with music- it is frequently my outlet for emotions and feelings, its a good place to feel at home. Ironically enough there are very few actual blues songs that i...

    It just does something to you in here (touching

    Big Maybelle Shaking It

    Whole Lotta Goin' On was first recorded by rhythm and blues artist Big Maybelle in March of 1955. A more "universal" successful version was recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis a few years later.  I can't disrespect Jerry lee's version because even though he changed the song to a boogie...

    Love In Vain

    This is the first Robert Johnson song I ever heard. It was on the Rolling Stones' live album: Get Your Ya Yas out.  Then I found out it was by this shadowy blues legend, Robert Johnson.  This version by Eric Clapton is true to the original.  Eric has certainly earned is right...

    Sisters And The Blues

    Women were practitioners of the blues from the beginning. Their story has largely been ignored and wiped from history for the myth of the Lonely black man traveling the back roads of the deep South. This may be due to the fact that this romantic image was seized upon by the young...

    I had some music industry people take me to a

    blues club the other night, hopefully to watch and listen. After a couple of hours one of the guys offered me his guitar while he took a break. I don't play regularly any more so I was alittle rusty but it came back. I played for over a hour with the group. I'm suprised...
