Deep Grooves: John Hammond – Source Point/I’m Satisfied (Raven)

Though George Thorogood is probably the first name that comes to mind when thinking of a white artist who made his living from singing gut bucket blues songs, anyone who knows their music history will pipe up John Hammond quicker than a hiccup. And sure, I could have mentioned The Rolling Stones etc. but I am talking pure, unadulterated folk blues complete with slide guitar slidin’ and harmonica wailin’ and everyone knows The Stones stuck to the more commercial end of the blues spectrum save a few album cuts here and there.
