The Real Blues

        "No disrespect to the electrified Chicago version of blues music - things always change - but in my humble opinion, true blues belongs to the Delta. It doesn't boogie, it doesn't shred - that is a different thing. True blues is on the porch. It slinks and lurches and moans. It comes from a place and time that thankfully and hopefully will not come again, yet it can't be reproduced or faked...not a style but a piece of history and time."

  1. I agree electric blues make me sad. Delta blues is just more rough and raw. I'm in Arkansas just a 45 minute drive from the delta. Cool site. Good job.
