    The Allman Brothers, through all its incarnations has made a standard out of this song, and here a later version. What you don't know is that it was written originally by a classic blues man, who happens to have been featured in a Bob Dylan song, Blind WIllie McTell. Check out his version in the next video

    A few people have expressed to me that they'd like to know more about blues music, and in fact, blues is closely intertwined with American and African culture and history.

    I'm in the middle of the audio version of this book (it's available in print, kindle and audio, and I highly recommend it. It's artfully written and is just a flat out excellent start to understanding its history and connections to Black culture.

    #1 @Henri Galvão Well, it's "kind of free" It's a little trick Audible and Amazon do, that I disagree with. It's free if you sign up for a trial, so it doesn't classify as free in my book. I think the Kindle version is better value, even though I have the audible version.

    #3 Thanks, @Franci Eugenia Hoffman One of the fun things about doing the Hive is that I learn a whole lot, myself. But I have a couple of friends who have knowledge way beyond mine -- it's like they have photographic memories for incredible trivia about music, guitarists and blues. It's amazing what you can do when you have a passion, yes?

    #1 Yes, he is sorely missed, a very special talent both in the studio and on stage. Been listening to him the last few days, and have him playing as we speak. Taken way too soon, and before he could gain the popularity he deserved/deserves. PS. Love your photos to death.
