songs of how I met the blues greats

Postby watertore » Fri Apr 23, 2010 12:47 am

Adam, who runs the MBH forum asked me to post some stories about being around the old blues guys. Well, I sing better than I talk. After I read his post, 3 times, the music called me. I recorded some stories about sonny terry, louisiana red, lightning hopkins, champion jack dupree, and the first bluesman that picked me up in his caddy as I blew my harp and delivered drugs in Newark for the mob, wilbert harrison. I am loading them as I type. I will post them as they get to soundclick. I hate having to wait the 5 minutes or so for each to load. It must be a meant to be be because each song came right out one after another and I am not having to hardly do but a few seconds of setting the levels to master them. Excuse any typos, I am on a run here.
Here is the first installment. I will do more when the spirit hits:

That was a good idea Walter. Before you die you gotta get your shit into the hands of somebody who will dig through it all and cherry pick the most interesting stuff and organize it. Now all you gotta do is figure out when you're gonna die. :lol: :lol:
