    the great backstory to avalon blues is they brought him up from avalon mississippi..(his hometown) to record in nyc...avalon blues is his story...couldnt wait to get back home...and actually dissappeared from recording for around 3 decades after that!!

    thankfully he was almost as spry and great when they(dick waterman) dug him out for the 60's folk-blues revival...and he got to record again..and influence young players...bonnie raitt sat at his feet!

    True confession: after a 'bowl' or 2 I used to 'act out' Flute Thing---dancing around the room. I was 14. When I learned a little bit, sorry, but to me it was pretentious pseudo-jazz drivel. Still is, but at 14 what do you really know? They were heroes then. Maybe if I listened again...

    Part of the later (and very recent) resentment is from having read Al Kooper's Backstage Passes and Backstabbing Bastards autobiog. He was so unlikable---cavernous ego, a woman abuser, a self-admitted big hustler with minimal talent. I suppose it made me want to like his music less. I know he scored a lot of wins in the biz. Deserves props for that.

    The Blues Project was part of my youth, for sure. But unlike most real deal blues I prefer to leave them there...

    I can't get past the story---I only wish it weren't true---that he took advantage of Green's mental illness and childlike innocent honesty and bought that guitar from him for like $250 USD---then flipped it for like $10,000. Doesn't sit well with me. Maybe he is a great player. Honestly never heard him. I'll listen...

    hard to evaluate the person separately from his creative endeavors (woody!).. al kooper.....he was set to play guitar on like a rollin stone..dylan session...in walks mike bloomfield...plugs in and plays a bit..kooper was like- let me outta here!!! i can't even touch the guitar after that...so he sat behind organ..and played away at that..the rest is history!! his career pretty much built off that

    I'm not so harsh on koop

    and of course blues project was psuedo psuedo...but good reference nevertheless!! haha

    no no dont diminish it..he loved peter green..and gave him a fair price at the time..he kept it precious for years...honored it..and when it sold it had huge historic value..dont blame the player..be like if you had george bensons 60's guild...& u bought in 70 for 300$...

    skip that line of thought

    and dig bbs reaction to his playing...
