Gonna murmur low.

For hound dog there was never a bad song only varying degrees of great. There are also some good brewer phillips albums out there

Was fortunate enough to have seen Bukka back in the day
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Watson come here - I need you!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/27/19 8:30pm Michael 98145:

Geez. Great show again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:30pm coelacanth∅:

i'll guess back in the day was during the "revival", not during his first recording period!
and...a bit envious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/27/19 8:32pm Michael 98145:

@coel, probably late 1960s
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:35pm coelacanth∅:

damn, if i could start my life over, knowing what i know now, how would i convince my parents to let me go see Bukka White?!
(and Skip James and John Hurt and Hound Dog -etc...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:35pm coelacanth∅:

(...the ones still alive, doing the college circuit)
  Tue. 8/27/19 8:37pm Wilson in South Orange:

I was sentenced to a summer semester at college and I asked one of my dad's friends who was heavy into blues to lend me some CDs. He gave me two big boxes of tapes and CDs and that's all I did besides get A's so I could get the hell out of there. Sonny Boy Williamson... Lightnin'... Bukka (Bukka reminded me)... everything
  Tue. 8/27/19 8:38pm Peter from Dover NJ:

First time I've been able to tune in to your program from the start. Nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:39pm coelacanth∅:

Wilson that doesn't sound too painful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 8/27/19 8:42pm Michael 98145:

Oddly enough, our local Friends Center hosted some great blues shows. Gotta love those Quakers.
  Tue. 8/27/19 8:42pm Wilson in South Orange:

the universe opened up and shat seventy blues albums on me... it was great
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:45pm coelacanth∅:

i would've been scrambling to create my own copies of every one of them! (that i didn't have already)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Good bit about Patton & his AmerIndian heritage in the movie 'Rumble'.
  Tue. 8/27/19 8:48pm Wilson in South Orange:

I was 19 so I made mixtapes? Tragic flaw... but it was 1995. The only thing I recorded cover to cover was Hooker Endless Boogie
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:49pm coelacanth∅:

Michael those friends meeting house shows were the ones in the late 60s? that's awesome!
my sister's a quaker and her kids went to quaker schools. only show i ever heard about was an african (don't know the region) drummer who i'd never heard of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

2019 & still being schooled on Blues behind Rawk I know like my own name...
Avatar Tue. 8/27/19 8:49pm JakeGould:

I went to some blues club on the Upper West Side in the late 1980s that was… Okay… But I mainly remember the overpriced fruity drinks they served.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:51pm coelacanth∅:

1995 i was still rebelling against all digital media, so i can relate! i bought probably around 600 cassettes in the 90s, because records were no longer available.
Avatar Tue. 8/27/19 8:51pm JakeGould:

I bought LPs in the 1990s because they were still cheaper than CDs… Then I went all CD… Then I went all digital.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They got Slavery & we got the Greatest Thing There Ever Was. It's too much...
Thx MFA !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:53pm Matt Fiveash:

I did some things in the 1990s too but I can't remember any of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:54pm Matt Fiveash:

Anyway thanks all and maybe we'll try it again next week.
Avatar Tue. 8/27/19 8:54pm JakeGould:

If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:55pm coelacanth∅:

shanachie had already phased out vinyl for the most part by 1995, and that's where i bought most of my music at the time.
(distributor of matchbox, yazoo, etc....they did still have many of the blues comps on vinyl, fortunately)
  Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/27/19 8:56pm Jinx:

enjoyed the songs, Matt. thank you.
