Blues....

.... when I was a senior in high school, I used to tune the tape deck to this song and then race to town (to pick up my little brother from school) and see if I could make it back home before the song ended....... it was an 8-mile round trip, and I usually made it....... just as long as the local copper was still managing the school traffic where it merged onto highway 411, that is......

.... enjoy.... hey, it is one of those songs that sounds all that much better the louder that you turn up the sound....... Ry Cooder at his best.......

.... funny, really..... I always imagined the ebb and flow of his notes almost like the sensation of "breathing"..... I can still close my eyes, listen to this, and feel my chest reacting to the changing notes......

Bullshit So Far

Blues just do not get more awesome than that. I love the sound of a resonator so badly it hurts.

... I could not agree more, Erica... the louder you turn that song up, the more intricate it becomes because of the slide and the constant feedback.... I just love it...

Ry Cooder is the man. I'd love to see him live one of these days.
