Livn It Southern Soul Style
Let's support our music, in all it's many forms and genre, but especially, the blues.
From The ColdtrainBlues Web Site:
Steam Locomotives Sang the Blues & Inspired Early Boogie Woogie Musicians.
In his book,
"The Story of the Blues"
in the chapter titled
“When the blues began, the countryside was quiet. Loudest of the sounds to break the stillness was the roar of a steam train as it traced its way through the lowlands, leaving a smudge of smoke against the blue sky. A brief moment of excitement as it passed, a shrill whistle, dipping and wailing like a blues and it would be gone. It’s said that the engineers tuned their steam whistle ‘quills’ to play a blues but it probably just sounded like this to the field hands who knew the hour by the regular trains.”
