My 6 Songs are:

Crossroads - Robert Johnson
Sweet Home Chicago - Magic Sam
Double Trouble - Otis Rush
Worried Life - Otis Spann
Last Night - Little Walter
It Hurts Me Too - Elmore James

How can I leave out Wolf, Muddy, the Kings, Peter Green, .......

My book would be:
The Story of the Blues by Paul Oliver.
Reading this I'll be able to 'hear' everyone else as I read it.

My luxury item:
My guitar, amp and a slide
If I'm on the island long enough I might even get play properly!

If you guys have followed some of my other entries , you can probably guess a couple of 'em .

1. Johnny Shines--Too Wet To Plow......This struck me down with the sheer force of his vocals and tasty slide work ... A massive dose of the pure blues .......Perhaps my favorite vocalist.

2. Furry Lewis--Shake em On Down........Old guy , old songs , pure magic....one of the treasures of the 60's rediscovery period....

3. Mississippi John Hurt--The Vanguard Sessions......See above reason..........3 discs of the mellow genious of MJH..a gem

4. Otis Rush--Ain't Enough Coming In.....Stinging guitar as only Otis can play......great songs...soulful vocals.......a comeback of epic proportions......

5. Muddy Waters--Hard Again........the first Muddy I remember hearing......Johnny Winter really inspired Muddy to jack it up a few notches.......you can really tell these guys were having a ball recording this one......



I got a rich mans woman ...livin on a poor mans pay.........

1, 2, and 3) All three "Genesis" volumes (each volume is a four-LP set of absolutely briliiant stuff from the 1940's and 50's)

4) "And This Is Maxwell Street" (a three disc set of Nighthawk, Big John Wrencher, Johnny Young and others, all 'live' from... well, Maxwell Street)

5) I'm leaving open in hopes that my sentence will be commuted to "blues community service." If that doesn't happen, perhaps a complete boxed set of the West Side's booming years will finally come out before I head for the island. Then, I can have all of the Magic Sam/Shakey Jake/Buddy Guy/Otis Rush material from Artistic and Cobra. If that doesn't happen, I'd have to take "Screamin' And Hollerin' The Blues" with me. Since the judge allowed box sets, I get to take all 7 discs plus the notes and label stickers and other goodies that come with it!

Since the Genesis sets were issued separately, they constitute my first three picks. The sets were so massive, they included Muddy, Little Walter, Sonny Boy, Jimmy Rogers, Elmore, Arthur Crudup, John Brim, Memphis Minnie, Big Bill Broonzy, and countless others. Besides, I get to read all the liner notes.
