    For us blokes in the US this song was not available until the release of the "Golden Eggs of the Yardbirds" bootleg. It was originally released in the UK on "Roger the Engineer," one of the many songs that were not included on US release of "Over Under Sideways Down." Here is a link to "Roger The Engineer" in its entirety:



    Springboard Records released an LP with outtakes from the "Roger the Engineer" sessions which were basically instrumentals with Jeff Beck overdubbing leads on the rhythm tracks. Very interesting to hear the ideas going through Jeff's head back then.

    That is Sonny Landreth the slide guitarist from Louisiana with that swampy sound. "South of I-10" was his breakthrough album- it is a good one to start off with. He wrote "Congo Square" for the Neville Brothers. As far as I know he is the one who invented the revolutionary new slide guitar technique of fretting BEHIND the bar, which for example would allow you to change a major chord to a minor chord. Between him and Derek Trucks slide guitar has been changed very radically over the past 15 years or so.

    So what Blues Station?

    Tommy's really great- local boy does good. You may have seen him on Comedy Showcase in the mid-90's right after Saturday Night Live- his band was the house band. I remember listening to that show while working on the Torres' SuperTexan mod of an old Fender Pro Reverb that I had hacked up in the early 80's trying to turn it into a Mesa Boogie running the Normal Channel preamp into the Vibrato Channel (something that I read about in an electronics magazine) knowing absolutely nothing about guitar amps and the proper safety procedures.

    Has anyone mentioned Mick Taylor yet? I was just listening to him on the CD of the John Mayall Bluesbreaker Reunion concert in Russia in 1982- incredible slide guitar and regular guitar. His vibrato is to die for, going all of the way back to him playing Love In Vain with the Rolling Stones in 1969:



    "My Time After Awhile" is a real showcase for him from the 1982 concert:

    JOHN MAYALL From the LP-RETURN OF THE BLUESBREAKERS--MY TIME AFTER AWHILE. - YouTube

    And here is the whole album one side at a time:

    JOHN MAYALL LP-RETURN OF THE BLUESBREAKERS SIDE-1. - YouTube

    JOHN MAYALL LP-RETURN OF THE BLUESBREAKERS...FEATURING MICK TAYLOR SIDE-2. - YouTube

    If you like that you can order it from Amazon well worth the price for a used copy:

    Amazon.com: 1982 Reunion Concert: John Mayall & Bluesbreakers: Music

    Getting back to Mick Taylor he is one of the members of the British Blues explosion who has stayed faithful to the blues for all of these years and just keeps getting better and better (I think that he smoked the other guitarists at the John Mayall 70th Anniversary Concert.) Although there haven't been very many studio recordings of him in the past 30 years he has been very popular with the trading community- I just checked over at DIME and they have 103 live shows with him on guitar.

    While everybody knows about "Crusade" (Mick's studio album with Mayall) he was also on the "Diary of a Band" live albums volumes 1 and 2 which were originally available only as imports. Kinda boring as I recall but you might need to know that in a trivia contest.

    I did get to see Mick with John Mayall at a one-off blues festival in SF in 1968 (I think that Albert King was the headliner.) Watching him play I was surprised that he hardly moved at all from his spot on-stage but sure as hell played up a real storm.

    Here is another version of The same song, guitar solo is by Mick Taylors replacement!
    Ronnie Woods and the Faces, Featuring Rod Stewart on Vocals.
    IMO A fantastic group, with more of an underground following.
    I love the tone of the Ron Woods Armstrong plexiglass guitar.

    I really liked Ron Woods in the Faces and on bass with the first Jeff Beck Group but never thought much of him in the Stones- he was the guitarist who wasn't Keith Richards... But that could just be from my pro Taylor bias.

    It was a shame how Jagger and Richards hogged all of the very lucrative songwriting credits (most bands never get much from royalties on album sales but if they write a song that gets covered and played a lot they might even be able to quit their day jobs. ) Mick Taylor didn't just play guitar solos on the Stones songs- in many cases it was his guitar arrangement that made the song a big hit, a part that he added to the song which became an integral part of the song. I might even go so far as to suggest that without Taylor's contributions I really doubt that the Stones would have never reached their 10 year anniversary.

    I was looking for the version of "Have You Heard" from the Mayall Russian concert album but found this bootleg audio version from 1983 which is pretty amazing. No slide on this one, just really good playing which is not a derivative of the original version with Clapton on guitar.

    Mick Taylor is great, but I'll take Ronnie anyday.
    Jagger and Richards, always kept Ronnie Woods on a tighter leash than they did the other Lead Axe Men of previous days.
    Ronnie Doesn't care.
    Don Henley and Glenn Frey did the same thing with the Eagles.
    Everyone in the Eagles were a legend, but it all revolved around the decisions of Don and Glenn.
    Everything is around Jagger and Richards with the Stones.
    Ronnie can play with anyone if he is let loose.
    Speaking of the BloosBrakers, I liked this Lineup!

    Has anybody mentioned Matt Scofield? Reminds me of Robben Ford but I think that he has a better blues sensibility, something that Ford had in the 70's and 80's before he got so obsessed with his Dumble tone...



    Same video but this is his last solo 7 minutes into the song, channeling Albert King and every other great blues guitarist known to mankind...

    Matt Schofield Band - Lay It Down - Bluesfestival Gaildorf 2009 - YouTube

    Best.blues.guitar.solo.ever is what I think every time I listen to that song!

    A quote from a forum about that video and Matt:
    "Matt was doing exactly what the blues needs. Giving it a breath of fresh air without going too far into rock or jazz. That idea of tradition being keeping the flame alive instead of worshiping the ashes. The more people hear the truth in his playing, the emotional content (as Bruce Lee would say), the better off the blues will be. I hope he gets into the festival circuit soon and shows people where the music is."

    Steve Ahola

    P.S. There are a million live videos of Matt on YouTube but this is the one that really knocked me out in 2010 before he was so well known outside of England. Speaking of millions of videos I wish that we could filter out the crappy ones recorded on cell phones! In audience recordings you do expect to hear the audience but when you can't hear the band clearly- it being just like mud-why even bother uploading it to YouTube. (The only way I could find this particular video was by looking up a link on another forum posted in 2010.)

    Here's a guy that can plays the blues with anyone.
    He gets off on some fairy dust tangents from time to time, but when he wants to he is a rock solid blues player.
    John Mayer.

    Heard this on the Blues station, so it's got to be Blues right? lol
    I guess we will call it New Orleans Blues.
    I like the beat in this one, but not much guitar.
    Dr. John. "Qualified"
    I liked the version on the blues channel Better than this one, but this is the one I could find.

    Blues used to be "a much bigger tent" than it is now. Live recordings of Muddy Waters shows from the mid-60's have his band members singing songs at the beginning of each set- more often than not current soul hits. There was a live James Cotton album from the late 60's which had them playing Frank Sinatra's hit, "It Was A Very Good Year." The general idea was that if you played a song with a blues sensitivity it was blues.

    New Orleans music is its own genre. Like the Meters. "Cissy Strut" is a popular song at blues jams. New Orleans music has that "second line" beat which refers to the brass band playing in the streets on the way back from the cemetery after a funeral which was a joyful occasion (the music was very sad on the way to the cemetery.) You can hear that beat going back to Fats Dominos singles in the 50's. A very relaxed yet very tight beat...

    The Meters and Neville Brothers are not known for playing 12 bar blues but their music is dripping with that blues sensibility- as in Rhythm and Blues from the 40's and 50's which had a much different feel than the jazz of that time period...

    For a different take on "Qualified" here is a live version by the Tedeschi Trucks Band from October 2011...



    Thanks for the post!

    Back to the Electric guitar blues, I've been on a Allbro Kick lately.
    Duane played the slide before it was cool and an everyday thing.

    Albert King- Personal Manager (recorded May 17, 1967 during same session as "Born Under A Bad Sign")

    This song was very special in the singles sessions he made for Stax Records because he got to take an extra chorus for his solo- he was so hot how could you flag him down to stop playing and return to the vocals? Or maybe they tried but he just ignored them. In any case there is real spontaneity when he jumps into the second chorus because I am sure that it was unplanned.



    Steve Ahola

    P.S. I wore out my original mono copy of "Born Under A Bad Sign" and on this song it'd get stuck on "can do for you, do for you, do for you..." I can't listen to the song today 45 years later without wanting to get up and nudge the tone arm.

    Whining

    Is it just me, or do these pages with a lot of videos inserted take forever to load?
    Does it have to do with using "video" tags?
    For Youtube videos, I generally copy and paste the url, inserting a link to the video page.
    That does mean it takes 2 clicks to play the vid, but I think it also makes the page load faster.
    Does anyone know for sure?

    Works great here. You must be using the 2 Cans and the Waxed String and a 14.4 Dialup!
    Another way to do it is to click on the enbedded vid, then when it starts, click on the youtube tab at the bottom of the vid.
    That takes you direct to Youtube, and away from the forum, on my box, in a separate Tab.

    Here's a English Blues band from the 70s, that I always thought was underated.
    Savoy Brown. "It Hurts me Too"
    I love the Guitarist Controled Feedback, sounds Marshally to me.
