Have a great weekend!

I've stumbled into your Blues Therapy sessions for a few weekends now.
The therapy seem to be working for me; it helps me tone down my analytical side (right hemisphere stuff) and it allows Deep Thoughts to pop through from the left side of the brain.
I learned that the Blues is where music goes to complain about people.
Speaking of Deep Thoughts, I ran across this gem today:
For me, this site has become the Blues Therapy and Deep Thoughts forum — it's cynical, ironic, and painfully real, with weaponized observations and stinging humor — all the things you love.
The political system is what it is because the People are who they are. — Plato
glad to hear that the therapy is working.
i find the blues to be deeply soothing, even medicinal sometimes. it's the perfect thing to listen to after a week of news like we've had lately.
great quote from the prophet carlin, thanks! i think that he's exactly right.
great sheet mon!
Love that early TYA. Leo Lyons was an animal on the bass. It took a player like him to play with Alvin Lee. Alvin was off the charts talented, could write, play, sing, blow the harmonica, amazing vocalise, good as his playing.
Cub Koda never got recognized for how great a player he really was. Brilliant musicologist as well. Dude played in Hound Dog Taylor's band! He was the real deal. Passed young at 51. I think everyone should listen to that "Rumble". It is an awesome version. I saw them once, in '74 as a three-piece, and they were 10 times better than I expected. I was shocked how good, hot, and tight they were.
Thanks for the sounds!
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
