    Hey Joe, wanna visit? Come to me in the night and we'll smoke one together. In the silence and in the darkness, we'll smoke one together. Wanna howl at the moon? Let's do that. Come to me in the night, and we'll smoke one together. In the coolness of the darkness, let us escape. You are not and I am no longer a part of this thing. Let us smoke one together.

    Blues and white liquor, slowly approaching Paradise, go slow so you don't miss it. Don't pass it by. That would make you cry. Seems I hear a resonator guitar. It is so sad.

    And the list goes on and on.

    These are America's forgotten heroes.

    People will talk on and on about how much rock'n'roll means to them. Now ask them where the rock bands got their inspiration. Some may know a tad, "Well, I hear that the Mississippi Blues had something to do with the origins." Now ask them to name some blues artists. Crickets. They'll be lucky to be able to name one or two.

    To me, that is deeply troubling.
    ====================================

    Here's a history read that all rock'n'roll enthusiasts need to read -- lot's of info. I've only included a handful of paragraphs. Read the whole article if you love Rock'n'Roll. Had a relative who recorded early bluegrass music, but he also recorded Black Spirituals (a.k.a. Black Gospel) -- now that is true spiritual music. That is from the soul.


    "The Overlooked Roots of Rock N Roll"


    https://thejhsshow.com/articles/how-the-delta-gave-us-rock-n-roll

    "This article is a walk down Highway 61, arguably the most iconic stretch of highway in music history. Heck, Bob Dylan even named one of his most famous albums, Highway 61 Revisited, after this road. Basically, the Delta is a two hundred mile range of land that starts in Memphis, Tennessee (it technically starts at the Mississippi state line, just south of Memphis) and goes down through Clarksdale, Mississippi. It’s the namesake for the Delta Blues, a musical genre that influenced some of the greatest rock and roll musicians in history: PJ Harvey, Jimi Hendrix, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton and tons of others. No big deal.

    "Translation: that is a monumentally big deal.

    "The Mississippi Delta is the region where we see the first seeds of rock and roll. We can listen to Led Zeppelin and say, 'That's the first form of metal,' but it started in the Delta. Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were obsessed with Delta blues artists, and that inspired them.

    "Robert Johnson may be the most influential American guitarist ever, when you weigh the circumstances and the history surrounding his legacy.

    "I definitely encourage you to check out his compilation recording released in 1961, King of the Delta Blues. How important is it? That album becomes the record that young Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Bob Dylan hear and are inspired by. Then in 1970, they put out part two of Johnson’s compilation, which had alternate takes. Then in the nineties, they released a two-CD set that sold about a million copies. It's really astronomical how well it did.

    "In closing, I want to read a quote from Bob Dylan out of his biography about Highway 61 and the way that we think about songs in America: “Highway 61, the main thoroughfare of the country blues, begins about where I began. I always felt like I'd started on Highway 61. I'd always been on it and I couldn't go anywhere else. Even down to the deep Delta country, it was the same road full of the same contradictions, the same one-horse towns, the same spiritual ancestors. It was my place in the universe and always felt like that highway was in my blood.”

    "Basically, if you ever have a chance to come to the Delta, do it. Start in Memphis and just go south. And if you see the Devil standing at a crossroads, I’d advise you to keep on driving."




    ===================================================================

    Years ago I was listening to an interview with Mick Jagger. He said when the band members (who eventually became the Rolling Stones) were young/teenagers, they would buy what they could afford in Delta Blues albums, all the artists recordings they could afford. They were utterly obsessed with the Mississippi Blues and wanted to be able to play like those artists. Jagger said that they would play these albums over and over, constantly they were soaking-up the Blues.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rolling_Stones

    "Keith Richards and Mick Jagger became classmates and childhood friends in 1950 in Dartford, Kent. The Jagger family moved to Wilmington, Kent, five miles (8.0 km) away, in 1954. In the mid-1950s, Jagger formed a garage band with his friend Dick Taylor; the group mainly played material by Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Howlin' Wolf, and Bo Diddley. Jagger next met Richards on 17 October 1961 on platform two of Dartford railway station. The Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records Jagger was carrying revealed to Richards a shared interest. A musical partnership began shortly afterwards. Richards and Taylor often met Jagger at his house. The meetings moved to Taylor's house in late 1961, where Alan Etherington and Bob Beckwith joined the trio; the quintet called themselves the Blues Boys."

    Old Gzr: White rock'n'roll is essentially an extension of, a permutation of black Rhythm'n'Blues. Rhythm'n'Blues simply jazzed-up the Delta Blues / Mississippi Blues. Ray Charles caught all manner of heat from his community because his music was thinly disguised Black Gospel music.

    If you want to hear the real soul of this music, go back and listen to recordings of the original black artists.

    Though it has been years and years since I spoke with this olde timer in the shipyard wherein I work,,...we spoke one day about music and I was astonished to hear him say that todays Rock and Roll goes back to a form in the olde days called "Rockabilly."

    I'd never heard the term until that day but have never forgotten it.

    Here from Wiki..

    Rockabilly - Wikipedia

    And yes...it incorporated all those various music disciplines from those areas Olde Geezer mentions.

    Apparently many younger folk today know nothing about that history and think Rock and Roll is a new and original thing...it is not.

    in Britain we had "Skiffle" in the 1950s , with the likes of Lonnie Donegan, which predates Rock and Roll.

    Scots-Irish Bluegrass musicians incorporated the banjo into their instrument armaments. The banjo has its roots running back to Africa, being re-adapted by African slaves here in the South. Understand that in East Tennessee, the poor whites had sympathies with the blacks (aided mightily the "Underground Railroad"), opposed slavery (violently so), and hated -- actually loathed (i.e. wanted them dead) -- the rich Southern land-holders.

    May seem odd, but you gotta know the local history. Hillbillies, Blacks, and Cherokee = a trio created by poverty and mutual enemies. This trio didn't always get along; but then, welcome to human nature, welcome to semi-functional families.

    ============================

    Anti-slavery passions

    It was 1820 = 40 years before the breakout of America's first civil war.

    "The Emancipator"

    https://tennesseeencyclopedia.net/entries/the-emancipator/

    "Published by Elihu Embree at Jonesborough in 1820, the Emancipator was the first newspaper in the United States solely devoted to the abolition of slavery. Embree had previously published a weekly newspaper, the Manumission Intelligencer, in 1819, and it was followed by the Emancipator from April to October 1820. According to Embree, the purpose of the Emancipator was 'to advocate the abolition of slavery and to be a repository of tracts on that interesting and important subject.' ”

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Appalachian people had sympathies with the Five Nations. They also intermarried. It was all complex. History's lessons are always complex, even downright confusing, strange, difficult to believe. Go figure.

    I have certain tastes in music to which I have learned to identify over the years.......and not just go with the latest flow or fashion.

    I do not like music which overtakes me and moves me to another beat or tempo...not my own...

    I prefer music which aids my labors or even my relaxation and does not overtake me or try to re route my thinking or direction.

    I do not care for jazz per se...light jazz yes..and certain R&B...most of it no... Same with country...it is becoming rock and roll and even rap...same for Rock and Roll. I have no use for rap....as it comes across as trying to herd me....overtake me and make me march to a tune and or tempo in which I am not interested.....and country too today. Rock and Roll....no thanks.

    Some where over the years ....I learned to identify that....fingerprint about music.

    If you can think outside the box...you can even see this extended into advertising...to put you on a treadmill not your own...by preying on perceived inadequacies. A type of seduction ...Herding..

    Be very very careful about music used in movies and videos....often designed to put you on someone else's threadmill.....someone else's emotions...thoughts and ideas....puppet strings.....not your own by grabbing you by your unthinking and unawares unguarded emotions.

    Be Warned these Ishmaelites....using and misusing music to control you...herd you ..

    I'll go my own way ...and for my own reasons as well. And so too it is with Music....

    I like all kinds of music, from classical to hard rock and everything in between. Depends on my mood and what I'm doing at the time. I don't let anyone control me.

    I don't know what music is happening at the moment. Other than Taylor Swift, which I haven't listened to. I've been listening to Pink Floyd (another brilliant UK band) and have just switched to Bob Dylan as we speak. Haven't listened to him in years. I actually don't know if he's still alive, to be honest.

    I can't stand Eurovision, The Voice and all that rubbish. I never watch them. I don't watch any reality TV actually. Big Brother and the like. Can't stand them.

    Being almost completely deaf, I no longer listen to any music. My hearing apparatus does not do music any favors, or for me either. LOL

    It takes almost 60 seconds for this to load. Takes a bit of patience, sorry. Great music. Trust me, it's worth waiting for. Fast-forward through sections whose styles aren't your own. This vid has all manner of musical styles. Bonamassa is a master of many musical styles, so ...

    Continuing in the Spirit

    Joe was an ambassador

    An ambassador of the Spirit

    The Holy Spirit

    Music is prayer

    Joe was caught up in prayer

    He was possessed of The Divine Spirit of music

    His rapture inspired / inspires us

    Is he absent? Only in body,

    But not in spirit.

    ================================================

    Psalm 146:8
    The LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous.

    Isaiah 29:18
    In that day the deaf will hear the words of the scroll, and out of gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will see.

    Matthew 11:5
    The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.

    1 John 2:11
    But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them."

    John 12:40
    "He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn - and I would heal them."

    أَفَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا۟ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَتَكُونَ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌۭ يَعْقِلُونَ بِهَآ أَوْ ءَاذَانٌۭ يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا ۖ فَإِنَّهَا لَا تَعْمَى ٱلْأَبْصَـٰرُ وَلَـٰكِن تَعْمَى ٱلْقُلُوبُ ٱلَّتِى فِى ٱلصُّدُورِ ٤٦

    "So have they not traveled through the earth and have hearts by which to reason and ears by which to hear? For indeed, it is not eyes that are blinded, but blinded are the hearts which are within the breasts."

    "It's not the eyes that are blind, but the heart.''
    Quran 22:46

    Profoundly intelligent people often pull the most stupid of behaviors.

    MANY "smart" people gamble. My dad made money off these "smart" people. He'd let them win a few times then tear into them and take their money. Nothing they could do -- my dad was freaky strong and a good fighter. People with excessive pride put food on our supper table.

    I personally know what idiots university professors are. Smart folk are the worst when it comes to believing that the status quo will hold. Many allow their arrogance to keep them from having a healthy dose of fear.

    My family prepared for hard times because of poverty and having had a lot of bad things happen to them.

    After the war (WWII), my dad and his brothers were NOT going to work the mines. They did whatever they needed to do to make money. Preppers do what they need to do.
