All the blues all the time. An antidote to the moribund, corny and/or humorless blues programming generally found on the radio.

Isn't marching with the blues asking too much of the depressed?

Imagine going to war to this? You’d just want hang out and do nothing. Like Beetle Bailey.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:19pm geezerette:

Hah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Let's all hang out in the USO tent!
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:20pm JakeGould:

Instead of actually going to war and then hanging out day drunk all day like Motley’s Crew.

Where was the live version of “Blues March” recorded?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:21pm Matt Fiveash:

En Paree!
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:21pm JakeGould:

The album is “Paris 1958” so hey.
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:21pm Brian in Charlottesville:

I’m guessing Birdland. Matt?
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:22pm lothianman:

I have yet to find a Lightnin Hopkins cut that wasn't awesome !!
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:22pm Brian in Charlottesville:

Duh

Po' Lightning was always having trouble with the high sheriff of Texas
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:25pm ultradamno:

Did Howlin' Wolf ever sing any songs named after these guys?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:28pm ultradamno:

Don Van Vliet, in spite of having covered Evil, used to swear his singing wasn't influenced by Wolf. Which is my go to example of craziest thing ever.
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:28pm huomenta:

was an ear opener for a swans fan like me to realise the influence howlin' wolf had on their music
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/8/20 7:29pm G:

...where dead air lives! no prob
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:30pm JakeGould:

Led Zeppelin owes their career to the blues.
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:30pm Brian in Charlottesville:

Turntable number four to the rescue
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:30pm huomenta:

speaking of don don vliet the first captain beefheart peel session is among his best music!
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:31pm huomenta:

Led Zeppelin is a guilty pleasure due to all the thievery
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:32pm huomenta:

this big boy spires track!
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:32pm geezerette:

The best American Msic came from Africa. ALL of it.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:33pm geezerette:

...music.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:34pm JakeGould:

Msic is a great new startup. Give me your social security number and I’ll hook you up.
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:35pm lothianman:

not to mention the rolling stones..just caught Robert Wilkins which the Stones turned into Prodigal Son on Beggars Banquet. In any case a great source !!
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:35pm Mailman Tom:

Blue is the warmest color
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:35pm geezerette:

Ha! Jake.

I don't know...I don't send my SS# to a startup that retains any vowels of the original word.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:39pm geezerette:

Hahaha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:39pm ultradamno:

Hey a Van Halen cover...
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:41pm JakeGould:

Van Halen is a band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:42pm ultradamno:

I thought Van Halen was a brothers and Blondie is a group.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:42pm JakeGould:

No, brothers make movies nowadays. And if they make a good movie they have trilogies.
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:45pm lothianman:

Great theme....time for Butterbeans and Susie !!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:45pm ultradamno:

...or one movie broken into two parts. Followed by two more also broken into two parts each.
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:46pm lothianman:

Nuthin like nasty stuff that only blues fans can follow
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:47pm JakeGould:

Just imagine of “The Maltese Falcon” was directed by the “Hughes Brothers” and spawned sequels like… “The Persian Falcon” or the “The South Seas Falcon”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:48pm ultradamno:

The Maltese Falcons
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:49pm JakeGould:

“One falcon to rule them all!”
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:49pm JakeGould:

And in each film the falcon itself is either lead, wood, or stone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:51pm ultradamno:

Only one has the real jewels in the third installment: Three Falcon Monte.
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:52pm Archie:

You have got to be falcon kidding me!
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:53pm JakeGould:

That’s why Steven Soderbergh is no longer making films. No brother to form “The Soderbergh Brothers.”
Avatar Wed. 1/8/20 7:53pm JakeGould:

@Archie: And that is what the comedy starring whoever that guy is from “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” is would say.
  Wed. 1/8/20 7:56pm Archie:

Falcon right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 1/8/20 7:57pm Matt Fiveash:
