Band Introduction 4. Sweet Mama Janisse 5. Robin, glad you're back! The roots of this song are before my time too, but I well remember when it seemed like a song in every modern act's repertoire.
Again it's Taj Mahal. Hallowe'en: never got it. Never have. Probably never will. I had an album back when I bought my first stereo that was a Columbia sampler of some of their best guitarists, and Johnny Winter and Taj Mahal were both on it.
Taj's guitar player, of course, was the late, great Jesse Ed Davis. It was the first I had ever heard of either of them and I was hooked. I've seen both in concert Taj when I was at Northwestern, Johnny some time after I moved here and both were excellent. As for the song, I'm leaning more to Johnny Winter's read of it. Taj's honky-tonk piano style really didn't cut it for me, and Jesse Ed didn't get a solo. Give my vote to Johnny Winter.
John, I loved Halloween when I was a kid and worked in the Halloween industry for nearly two decades. Now I'm kind of sick of it and don't much like dealing with it.
Nice to see a turn in voting from you. A vote for Johnny Winter Lee. When I was little, I'd go tricker-treating with two of my older brothers. We'd go through the neighborhood, then swap costumes with each other, hit the neighborhood again, swap costumes a third time and hit everyone up for a third time. Now that I think about it, I bet that's where my super sweet tooth came from. But those days, it was mostly innocent fun.
Today, it seems the costumes are overtly sexual and the innocence in gone. Kids are growing up way too fast. Plus, it's really not as safe to take them out to peoples homes as it once was. In many ways, I'm glad that I don't have kids of my own to worry about that.
Johnny Winters came out of the box strong and felt really in my face and quite aggressive. I much preferred the laid back sound of Taj Mahal. Mary, when I was of trick-or-treating age we lived in a neighborhood that was so big that we were never able to finish our rounds let alone start over again. I'd always have candy enough to last through Thanksgiving and you can believe that I was eating more than my daily share until it was all gone.
I rarely met a candy that I didn't like. I'm not a big fan of Halloween. I think even as a kid I found coming up with a costume kind of stressful. I definitely don't get the 'school girl' thing, but then there is much in popular culture I can't quite understand.
Hope your'e doing well! Joyce, I always liked coming up with a yearly costume especially when I started foregoing the boxed ones bought in the store and started coming up with my own.
Things seems to be going a bit overboard in our times. Doing well--just not attending to blogging much. Take a look at Japanese anime, they have real weird taste in some of that stuff, not just for Hallloween. To each their own though. Pat, I know the Japanese have a thing for fetishism so it's no wonder what they come up with in their anime. I've seen some of the more mainstream stuff as well as images from some of the more far-fetched stuff.
Another vote for Johnny Winter.
