BB King & Tracy Chapman The Thrill is Gone

Of all the songs on the CD Duces Wild, this is my favorite.

Son House, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, & Mike Bloomfield

Comment @ YouTube for this video;

Son House and Bloomfield - whiskey and speed - casualties of the 60's lifestyle - Wolf had good words to say in his documentary I'm paraphrasing: "you done had a chance to do something with your life, now all you want is some whiskey"

So sad and so true, it almost gives me the blues.

I feel like going to Mississippi...

And on my way there I got Mr. Mississippi John Hurt on my mind ...

Mississippi John Hurt - Lonesome Valley Blues

Mississippi John Hurt - Spike Driver Blues

Mississippi John Hurt - Goodnight Irene

The story that he tells before playing is delightful.
