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.

I going to take a journey back in time to 1924 and one of the first male blues cat to record Papa Charley Jackson from Louisiana.



The first male "STAR" of them blues Texan Blind Lemon Jefferson who first recorded in 1926.

The classic Black Snake Moan and he ain't singing about no snake.

Former governor of Louisiana



When it first started recording in the early 30's he recorded with guitarist Oscar Woods, a black bluesman. Which at that time in the south was a bit edgy

Alright, a few from one of my favorite singer/songwriters coming out of the Texas/red dirt scene, and then Iím going back to my film noir fest.

Here is a true classic in American musicology. Richard "Rabbit" Brown's "James Alley" which is somewheRe in New Orleans. Sad thing is Brown only recorded 3/4 records, that just don't seem right.
