    So what I did when I got old enought was find out who influensed them. Which took me back to the 20's.
    Your parents were cool as ****. I didn't find the blues until my teens.

    Yes they are.

    I do listen to most everything but I always come back to them old blues. I own all that prewar stuff, yep, primitive. A lot of these guys only recorded a record or two, then....poof!

    Love some of those names....

    Boweavil Jackson
    Peanut the Kidnapper
    Jaybird Coleman
    Ramblin' Thomas
    Black Ivory King

    Yep, it's a pretty cool journey back in time.

    Ha yeah. Lightin Hopkins is my fav as far as names. I know he's a bit played for most blues fans, but John Lee Hooker is my fav of all time. Love Muddy, Howlin Wolf, etc. but JLH has that especially grizzled voice that I never get tired of.

    Hopkins is right there with Hooker and Wolf when it comes to postwar blues. Waters and BB King the top wrung of the ladder.

    But....I'm with you on Hooker, that dark, gruff.....cool.

    I;m a bit of an historian (if reading 12 big books on them blues makes ya one and owning all the music) and what is the most interesting aspect is those cats not found in any of those books. Those shadowing characters with but a record or two, yep...obscure.

    As you know them blues made a huge impact on country, rock, jazz.

    Pink Floyd got that name from old bluesmen PINK Anderson and FLOYD Council.

    The Rolling Stones got that name from an old Muddy Waters tune.

    I ****ing hate Blues music for the most part. Country, blues, and southern rock are nails on a chalkboard to me. As is most top 40 past around the year 2000.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    My dad had two walls in the living room that were floor to ceiling vinyl. He listened to everything, far louder than neccessary, all the time. I appreciate it now, but it blew when I was a kid

    The "Benny Lava" video with dub over is amazing..

    The dude in it (Deva?) is actually a pretty boss dancer.

    My dad liked folk music and neil young... Went to go see bob dylan and neil a bunch of times when I was in high school. Since then he's really taken on modern stuff... Wilco, the flaming lips, Gogol Bordello, Radiohead, REM, Courntney Barrnett, Etc.

I remember thinking the Sgt Pepper cover (and the picture disk) was the coolest thing ever, and the color disks (red and blue set) from the Beatles were amazing. The Wall had a lot of scenes from the movie. I think It was a Stones album where you could pull an insert from inside the cover and it would change what was in the cutout windows. They also had the Skynard "Street Survivors" album that came out I believe right before the plane crash and a couple members who died had fire coming out of their heads... They eventually released an edited version after the controversy and I think the original has decent value.

    So many cool records I remember.

    The record album covers were often part of the musical experience.
