Good morning bb... So sad... :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05am doctorjazz:

Sad is right-love his early stuff, when the guitar tone hadn't mellowed yet!
  9:05am Jack:

Best guitar playing lesson I learned from BB King:
Play one note at a time, and play it perfectly.
  9:08am Ruuf:

Loose eel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15am purpleknif:

Getting chills from this New Colony Six song. Like a ghost from the past it's been so long since I've heard it. Thanks Bobert.
  9:15am the soul brother:

BB KING, there is nothing else to say. RIP

  9:41am freddy:

Ronnie Tutt is the drummer maybe ? He's great
  9:41am William:

Sounds like Hal Blaine. Recorded in Hollywood?
Avatar 9:43am Bob Brainen:

Yup H'wood. Hal's a good guess.
Avatar 9:44am SmokinJ:

Ahhh... Spanky! :)
  9:44am freddy:

Ya. Too early for Tutt.
  9:45am David in ATL from NJ:

Great track!
  10:00am freddy:

Afro Moods reminds me of "St. Thomas"...
  Swag For Life Member 10:14am tadpoles:

Hi Bob. Good friend is writing a biography of Wilson Pickett. Hopefully out later this year.
Avatar 10:17am Bob Brainen:

Look FWD to Pickett bio Tad!
  10:22am William:

Man you're really layin' some nice stuff on us today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24am purpleknif:

Such timing, it just started raining in oHIo.
  10:38am David Redbranch:

Is it just me or is The Kinks "Rainy Day in June" an obvious ripoff of Dylan's "Gates of Eden," which was release six months earlier?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46am Ken From Hyde Park:

Rain (much-needed rain) came and went here this morning. I hope the dry people in California get enough to help their situation.
Avatar 10:47am Bob Brainen:

Hmmm, I'd have to relisten to Gates, David
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59am Ken From Hyde Park:

Chance to see Bob Dylan on TV coming up May 19 on Letterman's program.
