Kenne At Large
saturnalia 9 July 2022. WHRB blues show. "take It easy baby' by "The Yardbirds". actually it's Sonny Boy Williamson and the yardbirds recorded 8 Dec 63, crawdaddy club, richmond. Ten Years After, "head's in '73", i was swapping all my ole country records to Solomon gruberger (in brooklyn?!?) for his British Invasion records so when I heard Sonny Boy Williamson SOLO AND on harp with "bye bye bird' on this 7 jan 66 album i was enthralled and began trying to ape him! take note of a young Eric Clapton's guitar solo: same scales but no Cream-type Marshalls, so Even Dwarves Started Small!"....

Modern country tho BUT "and now here's an oldie; "all my exes live in texas" (George Strait, 1987) and yes that IS true of the "Princess of the Trailer park!" ( Mach bell is superb on that song on "not fade away" maracaaas and Keith Relf harp. DO buy both books The Gospel According to Saint Mach"!"..
