Cappuccino Blues on TV (28) RE: Blues on TV 28 Oct 18


The comment in this show that I really enjoyed was when they were showing the well-known clip of Sister Rosetta playing that strange live show on a northern railway station platform (with an electric guitar - in the rain!). Cerys wondered what the blues artists thought of being brought to play in this weird scenario, and Val replied, perceptively, 'to them, it was just another gig...'

With regard to T-Bone Walker, I recall an interview with BB King in which he was asked about the rise of electric blues guitar playing, and he replied along the lines of : 'some of us were talking about this the other day, and we decided it all began with T-Bone Walker...'
