Subject: RE: If you like Nic Jones you'll like.....
Guest 10th Feb 03. I have been listening to the blues for a quarter of a century. The British blues boom of the early 60s is amost unlistanble now. The original artists, however - Tommy Johnson right through to Muddy Waters - have a timeless quality. Will we be listening to Chris Smither in 50 years time? ofcourse, for those of us who cannot take our blues pure, maybe these white carbon copies serve a purpose.

Guest, yes. I found your remark about jazz sounding like a fire in a pet shop priceless. I assume you have listened to Ornette Coleman?

Anyone thinking that this thread has deviated from its original subject, I would like to say that Tommy Johnson's name is mentioned and as a guitarist he is as fascinating as Nic. So if you like Nic..... you will like Tommy Johnson.
