MessageSujet: "Dust My Broom": Robert Johnson, Elmore James, etc.    Dim 8 Mai - 16:34

I've just finished writing and posting an in-depth account of how Robert Johnson and Elmore James transformed several early 1930s singles into a rip-roaring blues standard and rite-of-passage for slide guitarists. I've tried to detail all of the predecessors, beginning with Pinetop and Lindberg (aka the Sparks Brothers) in 1932, Jack Kelly and His South Memphis Jug Band in August 1933, Carl Rafferty in December 1933, Josh White in 1934, Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell in 1935, Kokomo Arnold's "Sagefield Woman Blues" and "Sissy Man Blues," and Big Bill Broonzy's 1938 "I Believe I'll Go Back Home."

There are a lot of details about Robert Johnson's slideless "I Believe I'll Just My Broom," including insights on how he got his sound. Then come the early postwar versions by Arthur Crudup and Robert Lockwood, Jr. I've gone most in-depth with the Elmore James versions for Trumpet Records in 1951 and Fire/Fury/Enjoy in November 1959. Ry Cooder contributed some intriguing insights to this section, and Homesick James provided me with a lot of interesting info about the 1959 session and how they'd frame parts onstage.

After that, I cover the Rolling Stones connection and the many covers done by British and American musicians in the 1960s, on up to the modern era.

Anyway, if you love the blues and "Dust My Broom," I invite you to check it out: [url=http://jasobrecht.com/dust-broom-story-song/ ]http://jasobrecht.com/dust-broom-story-song/ [/url]

Very interesting and very well done Jas,

I am a big fan of Scrapper's style, and I heard that Kokomo used to play on his lap (as I do, but for Hawaiian & swing music)

Otherwise its quiet difficult to "dig" his particular sound.
Your opinion?

Very interesting bravo ! bravo !
Thank you...
One question :
What does mean "Kokomo"?
I mean, is there a link between the name "Kokomo" of Kokomo Arnold and the tittle of the song "Kokomo me baby" by Mississipi Fred Mc Dowel?
