slim harpo/jimmy reed inspired

Hi all: I have been listening to jimmy reed and slim harpo all day(and most days) inbetween recording. I love the sounds on those recordings. They are what I bounce my mixes off while I am waiting for them to convert to wave and mp3 files. The warmth and top heavy (vocals/harp/guitar) and discreet backing ( rhytm guitar/drums/bass) plate reverb, is the way I like my music to sound. It is more akin to the live playing I did with just a mic for the singer and nothing else going through a PA. Todays blues stuff is usually way heavy on bass and drums. I don't think my music sounds like either of these guys, but their sound sure influences me. Walter

Show me all you love or nothing at all
silence, space, and music
I'm just me
the turtle and rabbit
memories come so quickly
