I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Little Wing - Allman Brothers and Eric Clapton

This may be the nicest of all Jimi songs. As you probably all know, it was made more popular yet by Derek and the Dominos, a project that Eric Clapton was doing on the side when he met Duane Allman. Inside the circle it is widely known that it was Allmans guitar playing that made the recordings so outrageous. If you know the recordings, you know what I mean. If not, Layla is one of the worst songs on the cd. Check out the dueling guitars throughout and the nice finesse that the two guitar kings make together. A must have cd for any contemporary blues lover.

This is a nice tribute with heir to the slide throne, Derek Trucks. Oh, and Warren Haynes is no slouch either...more on him later.
