Some of the Hooker I Promised

without comments

Over the weekend, I tried to put up a live stream of some John Lee Hooker tunes I have stashed in my iTunes playlist (8 hours worth!) using a program called Nicecast. It didn’t work, despite my best efforts to figure it out. So here’s the next best thing, a couple of live tunes from my bootleg holdings. So here at least is a sample of what I had in mind. The first track, Serves Me Right To Suffer is taken from a 1976 session in Chicago. The other is a 13-minute rendition of Boogie Chillin’ from a performance in Montigny Les Metz, France in either 1981 or 1983. So, at least now you have an idea of what I had in mind. And yes, it still seems like a good day to play the blues.

Seems A Good Day To Play The Blues

without comments

I got your blues right here. How’s about a heaping helping of Hooker?

Just for the weekend, I’ve created “Serves You Right To Suffer Radio.”

Tune in here. It should work in iTunes.

Update: No it didn’t work. See above.
