Σαν σήμερα, 25 Απριλίου 1923 γεννήθηκε στην Indianola του Mississippi ο Albert Nelson, περισότερο γνωστός ως Albert King. Ένας από τους σημαντικούς ηλεκτρικούς κιθαρίστες του blues που το παιξιμό του έχει επηρεάσει πλειάδα συγχρόνων του [από τους Albert Collins, Otis Rush μέχρι τους Jimi Hendrix, Mike Bloomfield, Mick Taylor και Stevie Ray Vaughan. Ακούμε: “Don’t Throw Your Love On Me So Strong” την πρώτη του επιτυχία στα 1961, μια σπουδαία live εκτέλεση του “As The Years Go Passing By” – ντουέτο με τον Rory Gallagher, από το άλμπουμ Blues Live του 1977 και τέλος το “Born Under A Bad Sign”, τραγούδι-σήμα κατατεθέν του, από το ομώνυμο άλμπουμ του 1967 [σύνθεση των Booker T. Jones, William Bell].


On this date, April 25, 1923, Albert Nelson, better known as Albert King, was born in Indianola, Mississippi. One of the blues’ important guitar players, a major influence for many of his peers, from Albert Collins, Otis Rush to Jimi Hendrix, Mike Bloomfield, Mick Taylor and Stevie Ray Vaughan. We ‘re listening to his first ever hit “Don’t Throw Your Love On Me So Strong” [1961], a riveting live version of “As The Years Go Passing By” – a duet with Rory Gallagher from the 1977 album Blues Live, and, finally, “Born Under A Bad Sign”, his trademark song from the title album of 1967 [written by Booker T. Jones, William Bell].

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. I was at the Fillmore Auditorium the night that that “Live Wire Blues Power” album was recorded. You can hear me cheering in the background. My favorite line: “Anyone who doesn’t like the blues has a hole in his soul.”
