Clapton put out "From The Cradle" in 1994.

That is a great blues record. You can't recognise his voice at all. And the playing is dirty, dirty, dirty.

And nobody has mentioned Rory Gallagher? On a U2 site?

Stevie is my tops. He was from another world.

carrie...

no one paid him (except maybe of Ernie Oertel and Don Law?)

he paid, in lifetime and death

did you know that when Johnson was 17, he married the 15 yr old Virgina Travis? She was pregnant and died the following year; the child did not survive. That´s when he went away.

hellhound on his trail, he did that deal at the crossroads.


and I forgot to mention Big Bill Broonzy, who performed istead of Johnson at the "From Spirituals to Swing" concerts organised by Hammond at Carnegie Hall.

As far as I’m aware that would be the case.

Also in regards to Clapton I never really gave him much validity as a bluesman, a great player yes but I’m not so sure of his credentials.

In reply to Brau:

In my original post I didn't mention Rory or Hendrix due to the fact they were predominately blues-rock players at the start of their careers although it is quite blatantly obvious that they became more conventional bluesman as they both progressed through life.

Well Voodoo Child is something of a standard nowadays anyway.
