Blind Willie McTell

It's Friday. Feel like listening to an 80 year old piece of magic?

Amazing no? Why, that sounds so "Dylanesque" you say. Tee Hee. That's "Statesboro Blues" by Blues master Blind Willie McTell recorded in 1928 ( 13 years before Dylan was born). That click will lead you to the article which explains what a genius he was and how he was so influential for many of today's musicians.

Here's Blind Willie himself with his wife Kate.

Have a great weekend.
