Some blues for my old friend Neil in Caracas…and for blues lovers everywhere.
Thanks, CG for the “clarification”. I got confused because of Neils’post. Later / after posting and further listening realized that it had to be different artists.
And yes, I thought the photo was Stevie Ray (more because of the outfit than the face).
Anyhow, great stuff, thanks again.
God, this guy is good, any last name or link to buy anything he might have recorded? Was he playing this stuff in Caracas? Where if so? Just curious how big his audience was / is? Is he somebody I should know and since I don’t, am I making a fool out of myself?
I know artists don’t want to be compared to anybody, but he sounds like a great mix between Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan – and I hope he takes this as a compliment, because he is in that league…
Thanks for sharing.
Caracas Gringo response: The photo is Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the tunes are a compilation of different blues artists in my very extensive collection of over 350,000 songs at last count (it’s an addiction), including Cuby & The Blizzards with Eelco Gelling on guitar (Perfect Song) and Julias Sas from Holland, the song “I Got A Woman” is from a CD called Triple Fret (Allison, Peterson, McCray & Weathersby), also Ana Popovic from Hungary and Bernard Allison (the late Luther Allison’s son) doing a duet, plus Gringo bluesmen Steve Thorpe (Little Wing) and Van Wilks (Low Spark of High Heeled Boys), Blue Shaddy (Bury My Ghost) and Dave Hole (Up All Night Thinking) from Australia, Scott Henderson and Thelma Houston (I Hate You) of the USA, Brazil’s Fernando Noronha, Angola/Brazil bluesman Nuno Mindelis, Vargas Blues Band from Spain, Jeff Beck (Goin’ Down), Kasa Choryich from Poland (Polski Blues), and the Rolling Stones (It’s Only Rock & Roll)…all living blues artists.
Yeah, or you can go to i-tunes radio, blues section, and listen to 22 stations for free. Free beats $13/mo any day in my life.
Thanks, Gringo, for the good sounds, and them good times. We _did_ have good times here, for a while, didn’t we?
It seems sooo long ago.
Sweet playlist to enjoy with a glass of Cacique 500 rum, well prepared, and laying on the couch!
