When the levee broke, Back Water Blues | Doggone Blues

When the levee broke, Back Water Blues | Doggone Blues | Doggone blues | Scoop.it
After the great flood in 1927 hurricanes and heavy rains caused a number of floods. In Greater New Orleans the levees broke in 2005 and if you compare the situation with 1927 then not much has changed. And today, on August 13, 2016 heavy rains caused flooding in Louisiana again.
Jon Meyerjon's insight:
In 1927 veroorzaakte zware regenval een grote overstroming in de Mississippi Delta. In 2005 braken de dijken in de Greater New Orleans en vandaag op 13 augustus 2016 opnieuw overstromingen in Louisiana. "When the levee broke".

Buddy Guy: 'I Worry About The Future Of Blues Music' - NPR

Buddy Guy: 'I Worry About The Future Of Blues Music' - NPR | Doggone blues | Scoop.it
“ Buddy Guy is the blues, and he's our connection to a genre that's embedded in the history of America. But it's a sound the guitarist fears is fading.”
Via Vivaldi
Jon Meyerjon's insight:
Buddy has been great influence of what blues is today. At 80 years old we can say, that hè is legend and one of the founders who made blues big today. Even in 2016 bluesfestivals in The Netherlands are on second place of the festival rating.

Hound Dog Taylor - mid 1960's

Hound Dog Taylor was one of the rawest and most incredible blues musicians ever recorded. This is a rare video of him. The only other footage I know of is from a series documenting the "American Folk Blues Festival" in Europe.

Jon Meyerjon's insight:

Vroeg iemand tijdens het optreden. Je hebt Chicago blues, Texas blues, Missippippi blues, etc. maar Doggone blues heb ik niet kunnen vinden.

Timelapse of Route 66

USA Route 66 Cross Country Road Trip Map, Data, Summary, Photos, Equipment Used: http://www.defreesproductions.com/road-trip-route-66-cross-country-usa-2012 ...

 

I saw this video on an Atlantic Cities article and was struck by the rural and "off-the-beaten path" feel that timelapse of the Mother Road manages to capture.  Route 66 looms large in Americana, in part because it represents a bygone era, a time when the automobile was new and exciting. This empowered many to make a cross-country road trip, but during this time the car was not so ubiquitous that it was the overwhelming force that is so visually prominent in urban landscapes as it is today.  The historical and cultural critique of the U.S. automobile culture in the Pixar movie Cars may be fictional and for a child audience, but it is quite accurate in noting that cities disconnected from the interstate system sharply declined and were never the same.  These places represent for many people then, a classic pop culture landscape of yesteryear.
