I was lucky enough to see the Paul B.B.B. during their "East-West" album era. Incredible.
  8:16pm markr:

Would've loved to have seen them then...
Avatar 8:18pm TDK60:

At Café Au Go Go in the Village, so you were right up there with them in that skinny club. (I was a young teen with a hep jazz dad.)
  8:19pm markr:

Very very cool.

Hello Matt, errr, Mark Rrrr. Hello all!

Welcome, mb.

Love Hooker 'n' Heat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Franco Twinkie:

TDK,You were one luck pup. That album is one of my all time faves from the era when I was in bed right after The Flintstones.
Avatar 8:29pm TDK60:

F.T. Yes I was lucky. "East-West" had great blues *and* also one of the very first psychedelic-Eastern jams (*before* the San Fran rock crowd). I remember well the electricity that night.

Stopping by to say hi!
Avatar 8:31pm TDK60:

The world lost a great when "Owl" Wilson left. Wish he hadn't so soon..
  8:33pm markr:

Mike Bloomfield said the inspiration for "East-West" came to him during an acid trip while listening to Ravi Shankar, and he imagined a tune that could combine the raga sound of Indian music with blues-rock sounds.
  8:33pm markr:

Thanks for stopping by, Kim!

Hi, blues lovers. Saying hi from Argentina
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Franco Twinkie:

However, I did see Canned Heat and John Lee Hooker at The Fox in Veniice with a salad oil light show show behind them. After it was over I went into the mens room which had vomit spattered all over the walls, ceiling and floor...kinda like the light show.
Avatar 8:34pm TDK60:

Ha hee F.T.!
  8:34pm markr:

Hola Argentina!
  8:34pm markr:

Yeah Blind Owl was really a special talent.
Avatar 8:37pm TDK60:

Hola fede-kida: Just finished my last sip of yerba mate for the evening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Franco Twinkie:

Legend has it that Alan had a total aversion to soap and water.
Avatar 8:40pm TDK60:

It's possible Sandy Bull mighta been a bit (1 yr?) ahead of "East West" with his folk-raga-jazz-rock mix. Peter Walker too. Either way, all those artists were ahead of the curve.
  8:41pm Lothianman:

My man jonny!
  8:42pm Lothianman:

Progressive blues experiment was a killer blues album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm steveo:

Hey Mark, great show. Thanks for filling in.
  8:46pm markr:

My pleasure, Steve. I've been looking forward to this one for weeks. You're right Lothian, and that was one of his first albums, too!
Avatar 8:46pm TDK60:

Was just in a rekkid store yesterday and an older couple nearby said loudly "There's no Johnny Winter albums!" A minute later they found some. // Hats off to Otis Rush.
Avatar 8:49pm TDK60:

And thank The Goddesses for Vanguard Records back then!
Avatar 8:49pm On the Yazoo:

Hey all.. I've almost missed the whole show.
  8:50pm markr:

Yazoo you're not from A2 by any chance?
Avatar 8:51pm TDK60:

The Hypnotist in Chief is on the stand.
Avatar 8:53pm On the Yazoo:

No.. I'm in Mississippi
  8:54pm markr:

Just checking--used to know a cat in Ann Arbor who used to (still does) host a blues show every Saturday afternoon I think it's called Yazoo City Calling. It's ALMOST as good as Matt Fiveash's show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Dominick:

Thanks for a great show Mark
Avatar 8:58pm TDK60:

Yes, gratitude extended to the disc spinner!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Franco Twinkie:

One more bragging moment: I saw Howlin' Wolf opening for Alice Cooper. When Chester introduced this song he said, in that voice: "Spoonful full...I know alots of you knows alots about that...heh ,heh."The band was wearing suits. I had never seen musician who wore suits!
Avatar 8:59pm On the Yazoo:

Yazoo City.. That's where Jerry Clower's from.

LOL.. I'm upstream a ways.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Haha ... my family used to say "pert near," too.
Avatar 8:59pm On the Yazoo:

I still say it.
