WHAT. A. TRIP. We took the 61 Blues Highway through the Mississippi Delta & loved every bit of it💙 So much history and gooood music!!! Went to the 47th Annual Bentonia Blues Festival put on by Jimmy Duck Holmes, went to the Blue Front Cafe which is the oldest standing juke joint to this day, Robert Johnson’s grave and Caleb left his tomato he brought from our garden at home, went to Dockery Farms where the blues began by Charlie Patton, went to Reds in Clarksdale where all the greats played, got to talk to Red himself, Met a couple from Liverpool who we danced the night away with, went to The National Military Park in Vicksburg which was so beautiful, && soo much more! So thankful I have someone that loves the blues and the history behind it🥰 We cannot wait to go back! I love you @madman_mccutch 😘😘 #welovetheblues#mississippidelta#clarksdale#redsbluesclub#bentonia#bluefrontcafe#jukejoint#bentoniabluesfestival#robertjohnson#dockeryfarms#everythinghastheblues#lovelovelove

Which came first The Blues or Robert Johnson? Here the pursued by a Hellhound, self-proclaimed King of the Delta Blues plays his EVH Strat and tube head combo like a demon. Johnson was murdered by a jealous husband and impersonated for 20 years after death by his cousin. Momentously on the 23rd, 26th, and 27th of November 1936, sixteen songs were recorded in the Gunter Hotel, where ARC had set up equipment to record a number of musical acts. "Kind Hearted Woman Blues" was the first song recorded. Also captured in San Antonio were "I Believe I'll Dust My Broom" and "Sweet Home Chicago," both of which became post-war blues standards. "Terraplane Blues," known for its metaphoric lyrics, became a regional hit and Johnson's signature song. Most of the selections were released on Vocalion 78s, but three songs and several interesting alternate takes remained unissued until they appeared on the Columbia albums. Six months later, on the 19th and 20th of June 1937, other recording sessions took place in a Dallas, Texas warehouse where, once again, ARC had set up its recording equipment to capture many different acts. This time 13 songs were recorded and 10 were released during the following year. #robertjohnson#crossroadsblues#ericclapton#rollingstones#cream#disrealigears
Kadıköy’ü Kadıköy yapan Kesmeşeker dün gece şahaneliğiyle zamanı unutturdu. Öyle ki konserden sonra herkes çıkınca, bir de baktım, karşımda Robert Johnson. Zamanın unutulabildiği güzellikteki şehirlerin peşinde bir dünya turnesinde olduğunu anlattı. Bu duyguya müptela kişileri en zamansız hissettikleri anda bulup, onlara konser veriyorum dedi ve sırf benim için çalıp söyledi.
