#music, A Song for Thursday, Middle of the Week…

Only one of the greatest Country-Rock-Blues bands to come out of the Southern United States, The Allman Brothers Band, originally headed by the brothers Duane and Gregg Allman. May they both rest in peace with my appreciation for their great music. And «Statesboro Blues» is one of my favourites. Here it is from their concert in New York City. I had the opportunity to see them twice in Miami. All I can say is that they were both great concerts at the Miami Jai-Alai Fronton, filled with sweet smoke and great music.

«Statesboro Blues» was written by Blind Willie McTell in 1928, referencing the town of Statesboro, Georgia. It was covered by Taj Mahal in 1968. It is listed as one of the great guitar songs and as well in 2005, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution placed «Statesboro Blues» as number 57 on their list of «100 Songs of the South.»

What do you think?

    They never really made it here in the UK F so I was never that familiar with them. Thanks for enlightening me though.

    1. You’re welcome Malc. I am sure that they would be to your liking as their music is phenomenal, jazzy, blues, southern (US) rock and just great playing.
