johnross Most Influential Album? (320* d) RE: Most Influential Album? 14 Dec 05

Six, you say that the Butterfield Band "proved we could now also play the blues." Just curious, had you heard the stuff that John Hammond Jr. had been doing for several years at that point?

Hammond was a different kind of act as a solo, rather than something derived from the southside Chicago bands, but it seems like he was the first prominent white boy on the folk circuit singing and playing what I'd call "hard blues" (as compared to people like Dave van Ronk picking up material from songsters like Josh White and John Hurt).
