Buddy Guy with Pat St. John

On his new album, Rhythm & Blues, guitarist and vocalist Buddy Guy sums up his approach when he sings, "People always ask me / About the blues I play / I say it just comes through me / I don't know no other way / I go by feel." A few songs later, in "Whiskey Ghost," he trembles as he describes the nightly test of will with a common blues-culture demon. Then, working alongside Steven Tyler of Aerosmith in "Evil Twin," he rolls through Blues 101 tales of woe about getting tangled up with the wrong kind of woman.

There are 21 songs on this two-disc set of new recordings, and by the time it's over, Guy and his guests have visited just about every worn-out blues cliché. That would be tedious listening if he were a troubadour. But in his music, the lyrics are really just there to set the scene. The jolts start after the verses, when Guy begins to play. His guitar — a custom Buddy Guy 1989 Fender Stratocaster — is more than hot-wired. It sounds like it'll give you a blistering burn if you get too close.

Every time Buddy Guy steps out, even if he's just doing a quick ad-lib between lines, he delivers something profound. That guitar wisdom, dispensed so casually, is the element no producer or record executive can order up. Guy is among the last living links to Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and other towering figures of the blues. And if you can't hear that in the slickness of the arrangements or the glitter from the celebrity guests, just be patient. The next guitar solo will come along in a minute or two, and then all that history will be inescapable.

Bluesville is playing Don't Throw It Away from Keb Mo's new album Oklahoma. The song, which also features Taj Mahal, urges everyone in the world to stop polluting our planet and our oceans with plastic bags, plastic cups and plastic bottles. The lyrics mention "Leo B." That is Belgian-born inventor Leo Baekeland, who in 1907 created Bakelite, the first commercially available synthetic plastic. Look what he started! The video of Don't Throw It Away is a call to action:

Blues singer/guitarist Arthur "Blind" Blake was born in Florida and grew up in Georgia. In 1926, he moved to Chicago and launched a recording career. He recorded 79 songs for Paramount Records, which had been founded in 1917 in Wisconsin. Blake also played on recordings by Ma Rainey, Gus Cannon, Irene Scruggs, Blind Lemon Jefferson and other artists. When the label effectively went out of business in 1932 – it officially shut down in 1935 – Blake abandoned his music career and returned to Florida. He is believed to have died in 1933 at age 38 or 1934 at age 39. Bluesville just played his West Coast Blues, the B-side of Early Morning Blues. It was Blake's first 78-rpm single (Paramount 12387), recorded in August 1926. Here it is:

Bluesville just played Tyler Dow Bryant's Born In Texas, the title track of his first CD, which was released in 2006 when he was 15 years old. Yes, he really was born in Texas, in Honey Grove (population 1,700), known as "The sweetest town in Texas." Bryant began playing blues guitar and singing when he was 13. Born In Texas isn't on YouTube but here is Have I The Right. I think he sounds like Johnny Winter.
