    Default Keb Mo

    I went to the Sony Employee sale Saturday (father retired from Sony/CBS Records) pick up a lot of stuff.

    The most interesting "new to me" artist was Keb Mo, I got three of his CD's and all have been spinning in my player. Check him out if you get a chance. I am no expert on Blues music so I am talking out of my behind here, but I would say he plays a mixture of from traditional blues to new age blues, I made those up myself, so if they are wrong sue me. Anyway good stuff.

    Anyone out there listen to this guy? I need more like this.

    As a side note, I bought a 4 disk "The Blues - The best of 1920-1996" I do not like the old stuff, mono, bad recordings and such, I am sure this is "the real blues" but it is not for me.
    Dodd - Battery Preamp
    Monarchy Audio SE100 Delux - mono power amps
    Sony DVP-NS999ES - SACD player
    ADS 1230 - Polk SDA 2B
    DIY Stereo Subwoofer towers w/(4) 12 drivers each
    Crown K1 - Subwoofer amp
    Outlaw ICBM - crossover
    Beringher BFD - sub eq

    Where is the remote? Where is the $%#$% remote!

    I bought a Keb Mo (real name is Kevin Moore, I think) CD a few years ago because we were wanting to have a wider variety of music, and didn't have much blues sung my males. Honestly, this guy was just a little TOO blue. Just depressing.. so we got rid of the CD.

    How To Write a Blues Song

    1. Most Blues begin, "Woke up this morning."

    2. "Got me a good woman" is a bad way to begin the Blues, 'less you stick something nasty in the next line, like "Got me a good woman, with the meanest face in town."

    3. The Blues is simple. After you get the first line right, repeat it. Then find something that rhymes: "Got me a good woman - with the meanest face in town. She a real good woman - but she weigh 300 pound."

    4. The Blues is not about choice. You stuck in a ditch, you stuck in a ditch; ain't no way out.

    5. Blues cars: Chevys and Cadillacs and broke-down trucks. Blues don't travel in Volvos, BMWs, minivans or Sport Utility Vehicles. Most Blues transportation is a Greyhound bus or a southbound train. Jet aircraft an' carpool lanes ain't even in the running. Walkin' plays a major part in the blues lifestyle. So does fixin' to die.

    6. Teenagers can't sing the Blues. They ain't fixin' to die just yet.
    Adults sing the Blues. In the Blues, "adult" means being old enough to get the electric chair if you shoot a man in Memphis.

    7. Blues can take place in New York City or Texas but not in Hawaii or any place in Canada. Hard times in St. Paul or Tucson is just depression. Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City still the best places to have the Blues. You cannot have the blues in any place where it don't rain.

    8. A man with male pattern baldness ain't the blues. A woman with male pattern baldness is. Breaking your leg cuz you skiing is not the blues. Breaking your leg cuz an alligator be chomping on it is.

    9. You can't have no Blues in an office or a shopping mall. The lighting's all wrong. Go outside to the parking lot or sit by the dumpster.

    10. Good places for the Blues:
    a. highway
    b. jailhouse
    c. empty bed
    d. bottom of a whiskey glass

    Bad places:
    a. yoga class
    b. gallery openings
    c. Ivy League universities
    d. golf courses

    11. No one will believe it's the Blues if you wear a suit, 'less you happen to be an old ethnic person, and you slept in it.

    12. Do you have the right to sing the Blues?
    Yes, if:
    a. you're older than dirt.
    b. you're blind.
    c. you shot a man in Memphis.
    d. you can't be satisfied.

    No, if:
    a. you have all your teeth.
    b. you were once blind but now can see.
    c. the man in Memphis lived.
    d. you have a retirement plan or trust fund.

    13. Blues is not a matter of color. It's a matter of bad luck. Tiger Woods cannot sing the blues. Gary Coleman could. Ugly white people also got a leg up on the blues.

    14. If you ask for water and your baby give you gasoline, it's the Blues. Other acceptable Blues beverages are:
    a. wine
    b. whiskey or bourbon
    c. muddy water
    d. black coffee

    The following are NOT Blues beverages:
    a. mixed drinks
    b. kosher wine
    c. Snapple
    d. sparkling water

    15. If you die in a cheap motel or a shotgun shack, it's a Blues death. Stabbed in the back by a jealous lover is another Blues way to die. So is the electric chair, substance abuse, and dying lonely on a broke down cot. You can't have a Blues death if you die during a tennis match or getting liposuction.

    16. Some Blues names for women:
    a. Sadie
    b. Big Mama
    c. Bessie
    d. Fat River Dumpling

    17. Some Blues names for men:
    a. Joe
    b. Willie
    c. Little Willie
    d. Big Willie

    18. Persons with names like Sierra, Sequoia, Auburn, Jeremy and Rainbow can't sing the Blues no matter how many men they shoot in Memphis.

    19. Make your own Blues name (starter kit):
    a. name of physical infirmity (Blind, Cripple, Lame, etc.)
    b. first name (see above) or name of fruit (Lemon, Lime, Kiwi, etc.)
    c. last name of President (Jefferson, Johnson, Fillmore, etc.)

    For example, Blind Lemon Jefferson, or Cripple Kiwi Fillmore, etc. (Well, maybe not "Kiwi.")

    20. It doesn't matter how tragic your think your life is: if you own a computer, you cannot sing the blues. You best destroy it. Fire, a spilled bottle of Mad Dog, or get out a shotgun. Maybe your big woman just done sat on it.

    Damn burdette. That was great.

    I've heard Keb Mo and liked his stuff. I lean toward the older blues myself. The poor recording is indicative of blues for me.
