"Junker's Blues" -- that one lick is all over in someone like James Booker's playing, almost a foundation. Same thing pretty much as Fats Domino's "Fat Man" record.

He almost reminds me of fingerstyle blues guitar because of all that interplay between the fingers. Kind of like one of those paintings made up of tiny spots of paint -- looks smooth from a distance, but everythings distinct and discreet when you get in close.

One of them was recorded in the 60's and had Paul Kossof and Stan Webb on guitars - on different tracks.

Great stuff.

2005-10-01T07:55:50+00:00 <![CDATA[RE: Champion Jack Dupree]]> I saw Champion Jack about 15 years ago, I also have one lp I bought 25 years ago which is the only record I have had to stop playing as it was just too intensely sad. No wonder when you read his biog, him and Jazz Gillum are two wonderful blues survivors.

Anyhoo, Champion jack made his home in Yorkshire and there was a recent BBC documentary abou all these stride + boogie woogie players springing up in this heartland of the brass band ( Think "The Full Monty" !)

Amazing man and his likes will not be seen again. ... pree.shtml

2005-09-23T15:54:32+00:00 <![CDATA[RE: Champion Jack Dupree]]> to checking him out. (There's so many great ones out there and just so
many hours in a day!) -I was wondering if you or anyone else on the
forum have heard of Charlie Booty of Tennesee. He is an older player
who's bio is quite interesting. He plays Blues, Ragtime, and Boogie
Woogie. He was in a plane crash several years back and suffered
a trauma to the head which caused him to forget everything he
had ever done on the piano. All he could remember is that he
used to play. Amazingly, he worked his way back to his
former level of performance within a year! He also has his own
little label featuring solo piano players.
Worth a look.. later....Mike K.
