People who have near death experiences all talk about a peaceful, euphoric , bright light enveloping them. From the moment we are conceived, we are moving towards that light. This is my heels diggin' in, I don't wanna' go, reluctant journey, into the light. Stephen

Hunters Call It The Rut / Hormones and All

Two of my favorites, together.  Bonnie Rait, and John Lee Hooker.  Bonnie's slide work is perfection. Subtle, with a soft swing under John Lee's gruff, almost spoken word. And then, at the breaks, she makes me go "WOW"!  Understated virtuosity.  Ever hear of the Boom Boom Room?  If you are West Coast Musicologically (I made that up) challenged, just Google boom boom room, SF.  They're talking about what I feel.

Hope you feel it too!

Ever catch John Lee Hooker in person? I did once in early 80s in Louisville. Had some really tight young white guitar & drums guys behind him, too.

Unfortunately no. Bonnie Rait, yes. Both amazing.
