OTIS RUSH Biddy Mulligan's Chicago WXRT-FM 2/2/85



Biddy Mulligan's 
Chicago WXRT-FM  
 2/2/85

Otis Rush (born April 29, 1935) is a blues guitarist and singer. His distinctive guitar style features a slow-burning sound and long bent notes. With qualities similar to the styles of Magic Sam and Buddy Guy, his sound became known as West Side Chicago blues and was an influence on many musicians, including Michael Bloomfield, Peter Green and Eric Clapton. Zeppelin covered  I Cant Quit You Babe on their first album !
Rush is left-handed and, unlike many other left-handed guitarists, plays a left-handed instrument strung upside-down, with the low E string at the bottom. He has played often with the little finger of his pick hand curled under the low E for positioning. It is widely believed that this contributes to his distinctive sound.
TRACKS

1) Instrumental
2) Feel So Bad
3) Double Trouble
4) That Will Never Do
5) Right Place Wrong Time
6) Instrumental
7) Trying to Be Nice
8) It's My Own Fault, Baby

Roy Buchanan The Blue Note Boulder, CO 05-24-85





 LIVE
Boulder, CO 05-24-85
Sadly, Buchanan is still fairly unknown to the general public (including scores of guitarists).
Buchanan had a distinctive tone, as can be heard in the live video below. He played his vintage Fender Telecaster through a Fender Vibrolux amp with the tone all the way up (and then some, it seems), using the guitar's volume knob mid-solo to create mesmerizing, keyboard-style effects. Buchanan could play harmonics at will and mute individual strings with his free right-hand fingers while picking or pinching others. He was best known for his gut-wrenching bends and incredibly "pointy" sound. He committed suicide in 1988 at age 48 while in jail for public drunkenness.
