If you like blues form white dudes check out Kenny Wayne Shepherd's new CD, one of my fav albums from last year.

Thanks, but I've long known about KWS (and I have one of his CDs, which no longer gets any play from me). Despite his meeting and being inspired by SRV as a kid, KWS is even more soulless than Joe B, in my opinion. It takes more than technique to play the blues. It takes soul, inspiration, feeling, heart. Eric Clapton has it. Stevie Ray Vaughn had it. Kenny Wayne Shepherd does not. Not an ounce.

I appreciate the recommendation anyway.

What's the phrase... vive la différence, I don't care for SRV in the least. I like Joe, not so much specifically for his playing, but the whole package, the sound of the band, songs, playing etc.

I'm glad there are so many options for each of us to find some we like.

I take it you've never seen Joe live, i've seen him twice on this tour and there is no one else playing today that can top his live shows. He plays for over two hours non stop and gives it his all. I own all of his studio recordings and agree that some songs sound just alright but played live they are transformed into some of the best blues/rock masterpieces that stand up to anything SRV or Clapton ever performed.
Sample anything from Live From Nowhere In Particular or the Royal Albert Hall concert to get an idea of what he is capable of, and yes, I pre-ordered Live At The Beacon on Wednesday. Now the long wait till I get hands on it.

KWS soulless... well I guess everyone has an opinion.
I'm not sure how you are defining soulless, I live in Chicago and have listened to tons of the old school guys.

I haven't seen him "live" live, but I've seen him in a live performance at Clapton's Crossroads Festival from the 2010 Blu-ray. I couldn't wait for his gig to end and for the next act to come on. Thanks for the recommendations. Maybe I haven't given him a fair chance.

I've been listening and watching the Mississipi Sheiks Tribute Concert



It's got some really good performances and the sound quality is decent. The stand-up base on Sweet Maggie goes really deep and is a great test for your sub system. Also allowed me to find a lot of the rattles in my room and brace them.

The DVD is not an immersive concert and the video is pretty plain vanilla but the song and performances are very good.

Well now, since you bring up the Blues, here are some pics of the Johnny Winter show I went to last week at The Granada Theater in Dallas:

Have you heard his collaboration with Beth Hart? If you have and still call him soulless then something is wrong. By the way, the same thing was said of Clapton in his early years. Look it up, Rolling Stone panned him as not being authenic. I do think Joe can be a bit derivative, but hell who isn't. As far as KWS, he is intense for sure. Whether that counts as "soul", I don't know. Having seen some of the greatest guitarist in their prime (Duane Allman, Dickie Betts before alchohol took over, Clapton with early Cream ), Joe ranks up there with them all AND he can sing.

By the way, the Clapton 2010 Crossroads show was not in any way represenative. I was at the show, and Joe was just "doing his duty" as he wasn't given much time at all. Frankly, most of the Crossroads show is more a brief representation of an artist rather than how an artist does in their own concert setting.

Finally, one of the great unsung guitarist is Leslie West. Pick up any of his blues albums (solo only, I am not a fan of Moutain) especially his latest. It is awesome. In the last year, he lost his leg to diabetes, got right back up and is touring again. Now that in my opinion is "soul". If in doubt, read some of the things people have said about his jamming with Hendrix.

I have that on Blu-ray, and it's a pretty potent document of NIN in action. I recommend it for anyone who has seen them (but doesn't own it yet), and for those who wish they could have seen them lately.

There would be some that may say that for KWS ot Joe B to have the same "soul" in their playing as the great blues/rock legends, they also would need to truly live the life & have years of said life infect their playing.

Of course, I doubt either KWS or Joe B wish to enhance their soulfulness via years of waking up to a shot glass of whisky mixed w/ cocaine (SRV) or go on months long heroin benders (Clapton).

So, I ordered it. Along with 2 other "People also view" blues DVDs

Watching my Mississippi Sheiks tribute CD, the second song is "Things about comin' my way" sung by Oh Susanna (apparently she goes by this name). Anyway, it got me in the mind to buy some more strong woman blues singers. Any suggestions?
