For me that starts way back in the 20's with Blind Lemon Jefferson, Louis Armstrong, Jellyroll Morton, Papa Charley Jackson etc, but just not in an antique music mood right now, no doubt later because I never go very long without going back in time.

Johnny "Slim" Campbell died young in an accident, as we see here the guy had some serious talent, the scar from a motorcycle wreck, hmmm? He is my Louisiana here.



Townes Van Zandt is all the things good about Texas music, a great writer and performer. You cant talk Texas music with no mention of Townes Van Zandt.






Calvin Russell has hard life written all over him, he does get the job done





Heading back across the border, the great James Booker



This broke my heart....

The Original Dixieland Jazz Band (ODJB) was a Dixieland jazz band that made the first jazz recordings in early 1917. Their "Livery Stable Blues" became the first jazz record ever issued.

.....a few years ago we're in Bakersfield hitting yard sales and thrift shops/junk stores and our fav Mexican restaurant (Oildale) when I spy a CD freaturing....The Original Dixieland Jazz Band, wow,,,,what a find, then I open up the...........no disc, I almost cried.

You’re definitely a music nerd, and that certainly isn’t a bad thing

You may yet have found a home here...

I blame my grandpa, he played every string instrument and a great vocalist, his favorite....Prince Albert Hunt out of Houston. Who was shot and killed by a jealous husband leaving a gig.



He had an incredible record collection of old blues, jazz and country. We'd sit listening to cats like King Oliver, Leroy Carr, The Skillet Lickers, Uncle Dave Macon and on and on with him telling me about who they were. That stuck with me all my life,

Johnny Winter knew them blues, here he is covering a Blind Willie McTell classic from 1928








Technically.....that song belonged to Hank Williams who was from Alabama, let it slide this time.
