Day 110/365 Got the blues

I love Delta Blues.  These old guys sang like no other.  If you weren't depressed when you walked into the place, you were going to be when you left.  Of course, this all happened way before I was born, but I like to imagine:

Here is a picture of a juke joint I was in recently.  This guy was Dr. Feelgood Potts.  He was kind of crazy and was about as close to good old fashioned Delta blues as I was going to get in 2011.  He kept on yelling, "Everybody screeeeeeeam!" all night, but kicked some harmonica butt.

I think I've got the blues right now.  I've been listening to this kind of stuff for about a week now trying to work it out.
exif: f5, ISO 3200, 44mm, 1/25 second.  It was dark, but I think the picture still came out pretty good.

  1. This looks like a great evaning. Hope the blues don't have you too too far down. See you soon and help you work some of that stuff out.
