Saturday Matinee – Louis Jordan, Little Walter & Charles E. Anderson

by

Louis Jordan‘s “Let The Good Times Roll” is a bonafide 1940s classic and features some nice legs, too.

Little Walter reinvented blues harmonica in the 1950s. Read more about him here. (Guess where James Cotton & Magic Dick Salwitz got their licks?)

Charles Edward Anderson  is a legend, made a name for himself by transforming traditional blues into what’s now considered classic Rock-N-Roll, and he did it by electrifying it and changing the tempo. That’s not news to anyone, but it was news to me when he released his best album, “London Berry Blues” in October 1972 and played T-Bone Walker‘s “Mean ‘Ol World” straight up. Yep, I’m talking about Chuck Berry.

Have a great weekend, folks, and remember that Gun-Free Zones only assist those deviants who choose to commit atrocities because they know that no one is able to shoot back.
