Spacepig Pig | 1401 comments And to close off this round of Fav Artists, some Blues for a change.

Let's keep this as open as possible and allow anything that has Muddy's name on it. He has done so much that there is bound to be at least one song for everyone.

Wiki has listed 14 studio albums, don't restrict yourself to them, live versions, collaborations, remixes, anything you want is acceptable.

Sorry for the late start, but let's get things back on schedule and keep the same closing time of 10 pm Sunday night for the noms.

So far we only have 7 noms for the next round, so let's see more coming in:

Enjoy the weekend folks, no gigs for me this weekend, then next week, it all goes a bit mental.

.I prefer this 1977 version with Johnny Winter to the original Chess one.

They knew how to use apostrophes in them days!

But presumably cos they didn't know how to pronounce words correctly!

Lez | 7490 comments Born in 1913 and brought up in a cabin on a plantation it would be surprising if he could write at all. Probably someone else from his church transcribed his songs.

Thanks to everyone who has nommed, the playlist looks great.

theDuke | 5605 comments Just an observation Spacepig (ohhh the irony... he says!), might be a good idea to change the thread heading to 'voting'.

Nah...just that I thought it would let everyone know, it's time to vote. I forgot to do it on the themes thread one week, which someone pointed it out..so I guess it's important! :-)


message 21: by Rob (new)

Rob Campbell | 458 comments Wow, that resonator guitar sound makes "I Can't Be Satisfied" the winner (even though it wasn't MW playing the guitar)

4 - I Can't Be Satisfied
3 - Rollin' and Tumblin'
2 - Bus Driver
1 - Mannish Boy

Side Note: Ever since I heard Chris Whitley's "Living With The Law" album (see nomination in the wildcard round), I've been looking for contemporary players who play the resonator guitar and have recorded an album with the sound and atmosphere of Whitley's masterpiece - I've yet to find one that is as good.
Recently listened to Eli Cook's "High-Dollar Blues" album which is pretty good, as is Keb Mo's debut, but if anybody
has any other suggestions, I'm all ears.

Brass Neck | 3619 comments Don't know Chris Whitley but I know a few resonator players. Have you tried Doug Macleod? Saw him late last year and have been picking up his stuff ever since.

Then there's Eric Sardinas

The inimitable Dave Arcari;

Hull's own Half Deaf Clatch (which his mum, who'd chauffeured him to a last minute stand-in gig, told me he is .... half deaf that is).

Can't leave out the Rev Peyton's Big Damn Band
