Chris Vega Re Big Mama Thornton

Two giants of the early blues days who never really got the credit they deserved

Really showing my age now

A gig by Big Mama Thornton from 1965 brilliant but think John Lee Hooker would be better sticking to his guitar
Followed by a recording of the fantastic Sister Rosetta Tharpe using a train station in Manchester as a stage back in 1964

Wow, thanks for this posting Steve.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe arrives by horse drawn carriage, straps on her Gibson SG and performs on a rain soaked platform at a South Manchester disused railway station in 1964. Almost surreal......

Love all the old bluesmen ( and women now ) and Manchester is my home city but never heard about this one off impromptu gig before, mind you I was just a baby at the time....

Just brilliant.....amazing.

The original Blues and Gospel show was made by Johnnie Hamp for Granada TV and filmed on Thursday, 7th May 1964 in the open at the disused Wilbraham Road Railway Station, Chorlton-cum-Hardy. Entrance to the Station was on Atholl Road, off Wilbraham Road, near the junction of Alexandra Road and Wilbraham Road.
