With a couple of exceptions, this is shaping up to be a heavy blues week, or a blues-heavy week, with Roosevelt Sykes, Elmore James, Little Johnny Jones, and Sonny Boy Williamson on tap, blasting their way through a couple of bluegrass and country diversions. Apart from Mr Sykes, this is raucous, overamped postwar blues, not a one of them recorded after 1955, so stay tuned and don’t touch that dial! First up, John Lee Hooker (Booker on the original 78 label) and Little Eddie Kirkland. . . .
