RE: That H. P. Lang recording = "Alongside The Blues" ... I'd like to get it = the backup band is very good. If I can't find it in DVD-A or SACD, then I might like the LP ... (when my new Rega P3 turntable finally get here ;>)
I am not sure they made anything else than the CD. Did you find it on vinyl, somewhere? Here is a pic of H P Lange with his trusty old and worn slide guitar He uses several others too ofcourse, the National Steel being one of them. The bottleneck is in this case replaced by a piece of brasstube.

I have that CD. It's been a while since I've heard it, I'll have to dig it out and give it another spin.


One of my favorite blues guitar players is Buddy Guy. I've met the man in person at the NAMM show years ago and seen him play live.

Here's an album that I like alot. Buddy Guy and Junior Wells - Alone & Acoustic. No electric guitars, no bass, no drums. Just acoustic guitar and harp. Good stuff!

Hey Guys,

"It's hard for a white guy to do the Blues" ...

Guess y'all forgot about Lonnie Mack from Cincinnati.

I consider his "Oreo Cookie Blues" to be a classic.

That "Folk Singer" album by a very old Muddy Waters has a very young Buddy Guy playing ..."Muddy's supporting cast includes Buddy Guy on guitar, with occasional visits by Chess veteran drummer Clifton James, Otis Spann's piano and Willie Dixon at the upright. ..." 24bit DVD-A version: http://www.classicrecords.com/item.cfm?item=HDAD%202008

With a backing section like that, it can only be good BTW Willie Dixon wrote a lot of the great hits for Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf. They were competing to get the best stuff from Dixon.
Wasnt Buddy Guy supposed to be one of the few guys, that could actually take over from Muddy Waters?
Sonustree: That guy Seasick Steve is magnificent I bet its worth every penny to see him perform. Better watch if he comes to play anywhere near Great videos.

Jesse Mae seems to have performed pretty much to the end.

I was just about to post the same thing as I'm listening to it right now. Excellent stuff!

I'm glad Kenny's doing this CD/documentary (on the DVD). It's a great homage to the old school blues guys that may not be around too much longer. Hopefully, it will expose and inspire the younger generation to the blues.

Check these out:
