Time to go back to the Blues, one of the Roots of Rock. Scott found a great video of four Giants: Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Memphis Slim and Willie Dixon, appearing together Live on an early TV Show . The Kinescope has been beautifully restored, and the augmented sound is Clean and Pure.
Note the natty dress, the attitude and rhythm of the group...that was the epitome of Cool back in the day with the Blues entertainers, and continued with the Jazz Artists, and later the Soul and R&B folks...at least until Sly Stone came along. Here they are, a very heavy line-up singing BYE BYE BLUES, and having a great time working together. I'm not sure who the lady with the feather boa is, but she knows how to sing the Blues. @therealdonrocks
