New! The Chat Room New! The Blues Musician Ad's page.
Both new additions are suggestions by visitors. I put them on the poll page and there seems to be enough support for them. Let's see how it works out.

.March 18th

Made up my mind and decided to move the site to another host. Because of persistent unreliability manifesting itself in site downtime, disappearing account and files, random 404 error messages, slow or complete inaccessibility and failing ftp, I felt forced to move from FortuneCity.com to a new host. After careful consideration I chose Tripod/Lycos.

Bo Diddley, lyrics and soundclips.

The Need For Speed...

I've started to change the look of the html pages and part of the navigation of the site. The only reason for these changes is to improve the performance, noticeably bringing the loading times down. I hope to accomplish this through these 2 changes:

1 - if you are a regular visitor you've probably already noticed that I've started to "dump" most of the graphics on the pages. In particular the 3D page title graphics and the JavaScript menu bar with 3D graphics;

2 - up until now all lyrics are posted in pages. From 4 up to 35 lyrics per page. This way of access will remain available for scrolling lyrics but gradually
all lyrics will also be accessible directly, a single lyric per page.

To see how this works try the "new"
Muddy Waters lyrics page. The whole transition will take a couple of weeks, I will start with the artists with larger lyrics collections.

February 12th

Blues Tabulature & Chords page

Some 140 new links to files added, 65 of them are blues bass tabs files. Thanks to Chris Ramirez for bringing the Bass Tab Archive (BTA) to my attention and tabbing Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters songs! The Blues Tabs & Chords page now has:
-
60 (was 56) artists;
-
94 (was 75) links to tabs & chords pages, containing;
-
1,260 (was 1,120) tabs & chords files

140 links to tab files

February 8th

Freddie King, additional lyric. Many thanks to David Moser (EUS) from Sweden!
Sonny Boy Williamson, additional lyric. Many thanks to Christian Castagnetti from Italia!
New! The Lyrics, ID's & Tabs Wanted! page. I often get requests for lyrics, identification of (parts of) lyrics and tabs. Sometimes I'm able to help the people sending me these requests but often I'm not. The list of open requests has grown to over 120 so I decided to post my "wanted list" in the hope other visitors will be able to help: blues fans to the rescue!
New!
The Essential Blues CD's page. It started with one person's requests for a list of 75 CD's to start a blues CD collection. Since I've had similar requests in the past I thought such a list would be helpful to other blues fans/newbies as well. The first edition of the list already contains 36 albums/60 CD's. Comments on the list so far and suggestions for the remaining 15 CD's are most welcome!.

Muddy Waters, additional lyrics and soundclips.
ZZ Top, lyrics and soundclips. Say WHAT!?. Yes, blues gals and boys, apart from their "hard" rock and boogie rock, them Southern boys have their roots in the blues. They have their own special blend but there's a lot of blues rock in their repertoire, see for yourself!. Many thanks to Brian Colden for bringin' to my attention and contributing the lyrics!.
Janis Joplin, lyrics and soundclips. Yes, another surprise for some of you, I bet. Besides singing about Bobby McGhee and wanting a Mercedes Benz she also had a lot of blues in her veins!. Many thanks to Stephannie Bass for bringin' Janis to my attention!. (P.S. Sorry it took more like 2 months instead of 2 weeks!)
Bessie Smith, lyrics. Many thanks to Prof. Christopher Cook from the University of Zuerich, Switzerland!.
Blind Joe (Willie) Reynolds, lyrics and soundclips. Another dedicated effort by Mark Reljac who puts another "unknown" blues man in the spotlight!.
Mississippi Sheiks, lyrics and soundclips. Another dedicated effort by Nils Haakon Hornnaess who puts another "unknown" blues man in the spotlight!.
