Iraq war veteran (Airborne Infantry) bought a plot of farmland in rural Virginia and discovered that something came with it. Grab a mug and listen to his story.
Junior Wells‘ performed his 1960 hit “Messin’ With The Kid” live in 1993. The Blues Brothers did a decent cover in 1978, and this version by The Healers is killer.
The Healers have one fine lineup, and one fine cause.
Roy Buchanan (1939-1988) was one of the greatest unknown blues guitarists in modern history. Have a listen to “Roy’s Bluz” live in Austin Texas, 1976. [Related posts here.]
Have a great weekend, folks. Got a nice assortment of Hot Links for you to sift through tomorrow.

I have a Roy Buchanan that I bought new long time ago called “When and Old Cricketeer Leaves the Crease”. Great music, but the weird thing was that the liner notes for the album were the complete rules for cricket, spelled out in very small type. I may have to go back to that album some day and see if I can understand the rules any better.
I’ve got one, but I don’t recall the name and I’m too lazy to go look. It has Buchanan’s take on “The Theme To Peter Gunn.”
I’ll get a backhoe and dig the album out from the”storage” room to see what songs are on it.
Randy– Mine has “Goose Grease.” His bass player is an animal.
