Spanish Fandango originally from his album "Back Home in Sulphur Springs" A great collection.

Blind Blake mostly fingerpicked ragtime not much slide that as far as I know. That was Blind Lemon Jefferson.
Avatar 6:20am

Best slide player alive. Says Clapton

Real bones playing on that Blake tune.

just wunderful --- who needs coffee --- two more cups of this please

...Always glad to be exposed to some more Sonny Landreth. I think of him as like the Jeff Beck of slide (somebody said that to me I'm sure) - in that it comes down to his touch & what he's doing is kinda mysterious !...

I saw Fahey in small club in Pasadena in 1981 the small audience kept bringing beers up to him and he was quite inebriated by the end of the evening.

Hey, this some song here by Butch Hancock and Mae Lacouture. Great lyrics and a tune Dylan could have written in one of his eras.

Good morning Steve and all.
I was supposed to see Vieux Farka Touré in a couple of weeks, but he canceled his appearance

At work trying to catch pieces of the show on three different radios. What I'm catching sounds great.

@SmokinJ, whats a good album to get?
Avatar 8:36am

They're all pretty good. I like his earlier stuff: 1964: Just Dave Van Ronk
1966: No Dirty Names
1967: Dave Van Ronk and the Hudson Dusters
Avatar 8:39am

I had the opportunity to see him in 2002. He played solo and was greeting people and selling his own CD's at the door. Fantastic guitar player! People forget that. Two months later he was dead. :(
Stuart Rose:

Van Ronk was kind of the Alexis Korner of the Village folk scene.
poor guy bat himself up with drink.
Stuart Rose:

Yikes! I meant "beat" himself up with drink.
