Today’s Music to keep me SANE in Isolation – Hounddog Taylor

I only managed to see Hound Dog Taylor once. He was on the Blues package that came through in 1969 or 1970 – I forget which. Sadly he did not stand out. I was more smitten with Son House, Bukka White, Skip James and Big Joe Williams, who were all outstanding. So I did not take much note of him after that – until I heard the Natural Boogie album.

It knocked me out!!

I like music that is raw. I like good slide guitar. I like it rockin’!

Natural Boogie had it all – overamplified, distorted and mean. There was none of that overproduced commercial rubbish – all processed down to the lowest common denominator – this was the real thing!

So I went and bought all his albums!! Today I will be rockin’ with Hound Dog!!!

I'd like to hear from you...
