Notes from YouTube;
The HUGE man with the HUGE bends - Albert King, in great shape at Fillmore East 1970. Listen to his tone, ain't that great?

Albert King at Montreux 1990 - Why are you so mean to me?


Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan - Pride and joy

I call this one guitar porn. That is how good it is. I really beleave that this is better than sex. LOL

She's Nineteen Years Old

I'm gonna say somethin' to you
I don't care how you feel
You just don't realize
You got yourself a good deal
She's nineteen years old
And got ways just like a baby child
Nothin' I can do to please her
To make this young woman feel satisfied

I'm gonna say this to you
I don't care if you get mad
You about the prettiest little girl
That I ever had
She's nineteen years old
And got ways just like a baby child
Nothin' I can do to please her
To make this young woman feel satisfied
(What kind of woman is that?)

Can't ask her where she's going
She tells me where she's been
She starts a conversation
That don't have no end
She's nineteen years old
And got ways just like a baby child
Nothin' I can do to please her
Whoah, yeah!
Whoah, yeah!
Whoah, yeah!
To make this young woman feel satisfied

As performed by McKinley Morganfield a.k.a Muddy Waters

This song is stuck in my head.

And She Could Be Jiving Too...

Right now I have the blues and that famous line by BB King keeps coming to mind;

Nobody loves me but my mother,

and she could be jiving too....
