One of our readers from Greece, Panagiotis Charalampidis, left a comment on the site saying:
“Hello from Greece! I love your site! It has been a valuable source of information about the Blues. I just finished a series of videos about the History and Evolution of the Blues (10 episodes), something like a documentary or a series of history lessons for music lovers….”
Thanks Panagiotis. Glad you liked our website and found it useful.
Here are the 10 episodes of The History and Evolution of the Blues on Panagiotis Charalampidis’ YouTube channel, funkpunk.
We came across this video of a New Musical Express concert in 1965. It’s not all blues but there are some great examples of 1960’s British bands doing blues covers.
Performers, in order of appearance are the Moody Blues (pre- Justin Hayward and John Lodge, when they were doing blues covers like Bo Diddley), Freddy and the Dreamers, Georgie Fame (covering Rufus Thomas‘ Walking The Dog), The Seekers, Herman’s Hermits, The Ivy League,
Many of our readers may have already seen this video of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Albert King performing in a Hamilton, Ontario TV studio on 6 December 1983. For those who haven’t, this one is well worth watching and listening to.
