Here’s a recent post made to the Blues-L mailing list by Chuck Nevitt. I thought that his interesting take of blues releted clips made very good watching….
Across The Street From The Blues Syl Johnson -- Is one of the great under-rated singers. Here he is, displaying chops right out of the Al Green school of soul. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrQZjAqkC3s Little Junior Parker -- Long a favorite of blues fans, late in his career Parker showed he wasn't about to stay stuck in the 50s. Financially, that probably wasn't the smartest move he made, because he was essentially cut out of the blues scene because his style had changed. This song is from an obscure album that also had 3 Beatler cover tunes on it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6CxhyXCiCY Rusty Zinn - Rusty not only knows his way around the blues, but here he shows that he's a helluva reggae musician, making Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" sound like it's straight on the island. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPp2r7mGZPU Sean Costello -- Speaking of Al Green, here is a clip of with Sean and his band performing Al's great tune, "I'm A Ram." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3tLMQX4Izw John Lee Hooker -- Hooker hooks up with Carlos Santana. Carlos started out playing the blues in the 60s, and I don't know that Hooker ever played much Santana music, but despite what some might doubts about, the two of them sound good together. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43yvS6bPZDs
