SON HOUSE – (Paul Butterfield Blues Band / Mike Bloomfield)
Uploaded on Jul 27, 2009
” Eddie James “Son” House, Jr. (March 21, 1902 – October 19, 1988) was an American blues singer and guitarist. House pioneered an innovative style featuring strong, repetitive rhythms, often played with the aid of slide guitar, and his singing often incorporated elements of southern gospel and spiritual music.
House was an important influence on Muddy Waters and also on Robert Johnson. A seminal Delta blues figure, he remains influential today, with his music being covered by blues-rock groups such as The White Stripes.”

Muddy Waters : My Home Is In The Delta
Uploaded on Oct 14, 2010
” Folk Singer is a unique album by Muddy Waters, recorded in September of 1963 during the ‘folk boom’ period when a lot of blues artists were being ‘rediscovered’ – Son House and Skip James, to name a couple. Foregoing his electric sound, Muddy played acoustic guitar on the date, backed by Willie Dixon on string bass, Clifton James on drums, and Buddy Guy on acoustic guitar. Current reissues of the album include bonus tracks from two subsequent sessions in April 1964 and October 1964. In 2003, the album was ranked number 280 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. “My Home Is In The Delta” is the opening track.”

” In all, the original Allman Brothers Band lineup appeared together on The Allman Brothers Band, Idlewild South, The Allman Brothers Band at Fillmore East, and portions of Eat a Peach, released after Duane’s death in a 1971 motorcycle accident.
My conversation with Dickey Betts took place on July 16, 1981. Dickey understood that this interview was in honor of the 10th anniversary of Duane’s passing, and he told me he was happy to focus totally on Duane. I admired him then — and still do today — for doing it. Later on, I did do an in-depth interview with Dickey about his own playing.”
A teaser :
Would you describe how he played slide?
Duane played slide guitar more like a harmonica than he did a guitar. Like we were talking about him listening to Elmore James, he also listened to all the harp players – Sonny Boy Williamson and all that. He really played a lot of harmonica licks on slide guitar. He used glass, a Coricidon bottle. That’s before you could buy ’em in music stores – you can buy ’em in music stores now. And he wore it in his ring finger, which is so unorthodox. Most people who play slide either wear it on their middle finger or their little finger, so you can fret the guitar. But that was the way he wanted to do it, you know. He wore the slide on his ring finger, and he didn’t use a pick. He’d use just the thumb and the first and second finger, kind of a fingerpicking style, which is the same style I’ve adopted on slide guitar. As I say, he influenced my electric slide immensely.

Robert William Gary Moore (4 April 1952 — 6 Feb. 2011), was a Northern Irish musician, blues singer and guitarist.
In a career dating back to the 1960s, Moore played with artists including Phil Lynott and Brian Downey during his teens, leading him to memberships with the Irish bands Skid Row and Thin Lizzy on three separate occasions. Moore shared the stage with such blues and rock luminaries as B.B. King, Albert King, Colosseum II, George Harrison and Greg Lake, as well as having a successful solo career. He guested on a number of albums recorded by high profile musicians, including a cameo appearance playing the lead guitar solo on “She’s My Baby” from Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3.
Moore died in his sleep of a heart attack in his hotel room while on holiday in Estepona, Spain, in February 2011.
“Red House” is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and originally recorded by The Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1966. The song, a slow twelve-bar blues, “is one of the most traditional in sound and form of all his official recordings”. It was developed during his pre-Experience days while Hendrix was performing in Greenwich Village and was inspired by earlier blues songs. Hendrix recorded several studio and live versions during his career. “

Tampa Red is best known as an accomplished and influential blues guitarist who had a unique single-string bottleneck style.
