Music Row - This is the place to post music clips and films, and to talk about music, rather than just guitars. Any interesting footage or recordings found on Youtube, or anywhere else on the Internet, please post them in this section. No commercial advertising.
Anything by Kent Duchaine(I think the live ones are the best) Ian Siegal(studio and dare i say bootlegs"live in Bremen") he`s great sounds just like "Howlin Wolf" check him out! playing here in Leicester in December! also Snakeboy great player best regards and a merry xmas to all Diablodan
Danny Gatton's "Fun House" (If you can "play" and secretly think yourself good, tell me what on earth this guy was doing! Seek out "Sleepwalk" by Danny on you tube. Have the PC wired to your stereo. OMG. End of. Also, The Mars Volta. Anything by them but after a very long burn in time, their latest album, "The Bedlam In Goliath" Does that special "makes the hairs on my arms stand on end" for me. You wont get it in a couple of listens. Took me at least 15 and I'm a convert! Is anything worth that much persistence I wonder? I'm no great fan of Frusciante but kudos to you John on this (these) recordings. (included for the sake of eclecticism) Stevie.
Paul Geremia - Guitar Artistry DVD from Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop: excellent! John Hammond - The Paris Concert DVD: recorded live in 2004; a little uneven, but his version of Tom Waits' Fanin Street is superb! Tom Waits - The Heart of Saturday Night Randy Newman - Rednecks Ry Cooder - Boomer's Story, Into The Purple Valley, Paradise and Lunch: listening all afternoon during a post-Christmas kitchen clean-up! Bliss!
Also started reading Delta Blues by Tom Gioia: it comes highly recommended (by Stefan Grossman, no less) and the first couple of chapters are very good...
I must have been a good boy this year, 'cos Santa has been very kind. ;D

Danny Gatton was a great musician. It was very sad that he took his own life. His version of Santo & Johnny's Sleepwalk is excellent. He had both virtuosity & velocity. Wonderful. There is a great film of Danny on You Tube playing slide with a full beer bottle and then a guitar solo with a towel. In this film his playing and tone reminds me of Earl Hooker. And that's no bad thing! I have a live recording of Danny Gatton & Buddy Emmons which is pretty good too.
Gerry - along with everything else I have been listening to over Christmas; Boomer's Story, Into The Purple Valley and Show Time, are out by the CD player. They are great albums.
Many will no doubt already be familiar with it, I but only became aware of Buddy Guys Sweet Tea album yesterday, browsing around the web as you do, bought it as a download on the off chance and ain't hardly stopped playing it yet So, thought it worth a mention.

BJ's new album, Lushlife, is wonderful. I went to the launch party a few weeks ago. They did a great show. It is such an unusual combination of instruments (pedal steel, vibes and double bass) and they are playing unusual pieces for those instruments. Good stuff!

Forgive me if this gets too much like a list but -
I was recently been blown away by the Adriano Adewale group perfect if you have forgotten that music doesn't have to have boundaries, or definitions. Great album and DVD which includes 'Pipe Song' played on drain pipes slapped over the end with flip flops. that lead me to ToumaniDiabate's Symetrical Orchestra just cause its great, Time the Revalator by Gillian Welch for the tracks My first lover and Elvis Presley Blues, a one chord number which I am 'working up' at the moment. Thanks to Dan who reminded me that I am very fond of Little Milton - Kansas City. And from him to Little Willie John - Person to Person. Another track that has been played a lot recently is Mavis Staples - Will the Circle be Unbroken (Lew London slide ), If a version could beat Maybell Carters version this is it. Because I have been Listening to a lot of Little Feat recently 'Get out my life Woman' & 'From a Whisper to a Scream' by Allen Tousaint. which lead easily to Dave Bartholmy - Who Drank My Beer (while I was in the Rear), The Kidds - Drunk Drunk Drunk Smiley Lewis's- Shame Shame Shame From the Cosimo Matassa Story. Staying in the deep South - Spider Gris by Sonny Landreth and because Steve Winwood was on the telly last night Freedom Rider by Traffic I've also been watching Steve Mariott - on DVD To my annoyance what I am not listening to at the moment is anything by Carmen Souza. Despite thinking that she was great live! I haven't tracked down a CD of her yet!

From playing with piano players back in the dim and distant I developed a real regard for Jimmy Yancy. Amongst other stuff - remember all those wonderful magpie albums - I had an album (vinyl) of him doing a whole bunch of stuff with Mama Yancy. A Gem.
I must dig it out scrape off the mildew and play it again.
I got used to playing their version of 'Make Me a Pallet' which doesn't have the changes I associate with the Doc Watson version and got tripped up whenever anyone suggested we should play it.
I am truly tempted to buy one of those Disc cleaners. - I am getting so lazy..... How will I justify the £250? Maybe the makings of a new thread. "What to say to the other half and when?'
