The British blues sound of the late 60’s was my ish this week, and it sent me back to a bunch of records I haven’t listened to in a while. Then I realized it’s really the week of the guitar. Sure the Peter Green, Eric Clapton, and Jeff Beck work is essential electric blues, but I also mixed it up. The Tal Farlow records are among my most favorite jazz guitar sounds, and those mid 1950’s releases are consistently excellent. The John Martyn stuff at the start of the week got me off to a mellow start, followed by Van Morrison. But there was also the detour into noisy rock with Superchunk and now Television. So many excellent records!
