I really want to keep the action going on the Blues Piano Forum here. Do any of you have any songs you want to learn but can't figure out? Do you have any problems or suggestions on learning and playing blues piano? Several here can help and I always want to learn more or help a budding blues piano player.

Hi Fred ~ Sorry, I don't even know the song "Next Time You See Me." Who are some artists that did it? Who did the original?

Hi Doc! Don't know where ec fit in to this--maybe w/his next time you see her--lol, I dunna know--quite a stretch to say the least huh!
Anyhoo--a bunch of folks recorded this ole JP tune--I used to play GDead's early 70's version baktobak w/Casey Jones--HA!

Anything from jump to traditional on this one though--wade thru what you like, & you can't help but pick up a true blues lesson to help charge up the ole playin/singin/&groovin chops! Best Regards!

Chick, I think Fred is saying Junior Parker did the original and The Grateful Dead did a cover and Fred did a medley with this song and "Casey Jones" by The Dead.

Fred, who do you think did the definitive version of this song? I don't think I have ever heard it. Would it be a good song for us all to learn?

I just did a search for "Next Time You See Me" and Little Junior Parker is all that came up that appears to be this song. Barry White and some rappers came up too but the title didn't fit.

By looking at a few CDs this is available on I DO HAVE IT and must have listened to it. It is on a Stax greatest hits package I have and is at the store. I'll give it a listen.

BTW ~ My favorite all time album cover is by Junior Parker and is called "You Don't Have To Be Black To Love The Blues" with an oriental looking kid eating a watermelon. I have that cover on my wall and it will be on display in the store.

Doc!---sounds like a prize artifact! I couldn't find it in any of the JP discogs, so it may have been one of those obsecure or limited/regional type releases! Gee, if you have/could get hold of the LP--probably worth some $$! Look forward to hearing more about your budding enterprise! Good Luck!

I have a Mike Bloomfield album where he does Next Time You See Me.

One song I would like to have the sheet music to is the original version of Mead Lux Lewis classic Honky Tonk Train Blues, one of the most original and intriging boogies ever made.
Some stuff he does are amazing and has a lot of rythmic challenges too, between left and right hands.

Fred ~ I have that Junior Parker album, "You Don't Have To Be Black To Love The Blues." All the memoribilia is packed away for the store but when we unpack and the website is up and running I will feature that album cover on a page. It is that good!

Pelle ~ I don't know where you can find that sheet music. I sure enjoy hearing you play from the sound clips I've heard.

I liked MLL's 1927-39 recording of HTTB(I don't know which version was being ref'ed). What LH voicing/pattern(s?) does he use for the I(&IV&V) bars?

Great tune! I don't know where it's from but it's a great shuffle with great lyrics:

well you lied, (*boom*) you cheated (*boom* *boom*)
uh-oh for so long
well you lied, (*boom*) you cheated (*boom* *boom*)
uh-oh for so long
you're just a wrong-doin woman
another queen is on your throne

yeah!
