Believe it or not, I found that CD at the library.  Haven't found anything like that performance.  Would love to.  Most probably not on CD I would think.  Loads of Best Hits CDs.  Nothing compares to those Blues.  I could make my way through a bottle of wine with those classics.  If you find more, let me know.  Heck, I'd start buying vinyl just for that.  

Big Joe Turner blows me away with his version of Cherry Red.  One of my favorite songs.  Found it on a CD called Evidence Blues Sampler '92.  Picks me right up!  YouTube for Duke's recording of the same.  I was thrilled when I found it.

I like Little Milton.  He's a new one for me.

Making progress now.  Got a camera working finally, though not great quality.  

Found a great Muddy Waters album apparently not available in the US on YouTube.  This is what I'm practicing from.  http://youtu.be/U5QKpsVzndc.

Duke, we need to get him setup on Sonic Junction to teach Blues bass.  My buddy has been looking for a way to slide in lessons somehow.  This is a great modern medium.

I will speak to Mike about that. He would be very good at it!

I went up on YouTube and found someone posted the entire CD of Eddie Taylor's "Ready for Eddie."  It's a must listen and elevated Eddie to my favorites list!

Duke, can you recommend one or more of Eddie Taylor's CDs to listen to?  With all the Blues music I'm carrying, I'm amazed I don't have him.

Duke, brilliant lesson.  This is exactly what I want to learn.  All the little things I'm hearing but can't visualize on the guitar.  I am dedicated to the Chicago Blues vibe!

Duke, just found out you are coming to Chicago October 2 at SPACE.  That's my birthday so I got tickets for a buddy and I (the wife is more of a Symphony gal - she studied clarinet under Larry Combs and Greg Smith).  

Sooo happy to be seeing your show soon!

Sorry to hear about your hand, Duke.  It happens.  Speedy recovery,  I'm here for the lessons and the insights and stories. You directed me to some great music.  Keep up the great recommendations.  If you have other Live recordings, let us know. I am a big fan.

I heard Gatemouth at Buddy Guy's Legends and I do remember his grouchy demeanor.  I recall him saying something to the tune of "you young guitar players watching my playing think you can do it like Gatemouth. Well, that ain't going to happen, because nobody is like Gatemouth. You keep playing that guitar and get to sound like YOU!  But I will always play Gatemouth better than you."  I loved this.  It's exactly how Blues musicians have a right to be.

Thanks Scott, Yeah that's a good Gatemouth story! Yeah that's Gate alright. I'll be back in no time better than ever and ready to go! Duke

Cool stuff!  Funny, a number of years ago I listened to Gatemouth and though eh.  It was because I was burning with what I thought was the Chicago Blues bug and I was just beginning my deep dive research into those who make/made Blues great.  I have evolved!  Last year, really got into him and wow.  I'm hooked. 

I also saw a YouTube vid of you doing a long solo from years back.  Blew me away.  Actually, one from 2010 did too.  That is Blues artistry.

Gosh Duke.  I remember craving to learn B.B.'s early guitar solos.  Makes for bliss listening to it.  Even better playing it.  This is the soul of the Blues.
