Friday’s Super Hot Jams of The Day: Delta Blues Classics

Easily my favorite genre . God damn it’s gorgeous out and so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite Delta Blues Artists with y’all. The Delta blues is a mythical sound of american culture; most everything we hold dear in american music today originated in the Mississippi Delta: from Tennessee in the north to Mississippi in the south, the Mississippi River to the Yazoo River on the east. Delta Blues describes a zeitgeist in american roots musical culture, a renaissance of sound and sonic understanding, a revolution in passionate, painful, bellowing, and working man’s poetry. Delta blues are the rich legacy of American music that forms the foundation of all we hear today.

I hope you love today’s jam!
