GUEST,Steve Latimer Watching Scorsese's PBS Blues series? (69* d) RE: Watching Scorsese's PBS Blues series? 08 Oct 03


The Buffalo station returned to the series last night. It was the Red, White and Blues Episode. I found the Blues through British Blues/Rock bands and I really enjoyed this episode. It reminded me againg that Van Morrison can flat out sing. I was surprised at just how much Tom Jones knew about the Blues, but I didn't really enjoy his take on the songs he was singing. I would have liked to hear more of Jeff Beck, it's not often that you hear him in an acoustic setting. Eric Clapton was something in the Cream days, I think he has lost the edge that he had then. Lulu was a pleasant surprise.   

A few surprises. Joe Cocker and Led Zeppelin weren't even mentioned and the Stones were passed over pretty quickly.               

I'm looking forward to the Eastwood Piano episode tonight.
