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.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Finally Recognizes Sister Rosetta Tharpe the Woman Who Practically Invented Rock and Roll

The Wall Street Journal reported that Tharpe—a major gospel star who broke ground with her electric guitar style and tackling of secular themes, predating the Sun Records crew and paving the way for basically everybody who came afterward—will be inducted in the “early influences” category.

Back in the day many moons ago when I was about 15 I had to carry my whole drum kit about half a mile to a local venue for a gig. First the bass drum, then the toms, then the cymbals & snare, then the hardware. After all that my arms felt long enough to be able to reach out into the audience Would I still do it today? no a bleedin' chance Not long after that we(the band) got a transit van for the gear and a Citroen CX for the band. A few months later on a journey up to Scotland for a uni tour our guitarist stuck his torso out of the passenger side window and took a pee while we headed north at 70mph, Not something I'd recommend

That's some fantastic footage Steve. I've seen most of the performance footage before but I didn't realise it took place Manchester way, and I've not seen the docu before. Very interesting, and Rosetta Tharpe wow
