I posted another version some time ago, but here it is from the original guy. As I said on my Facebook post (I post far more but not as selective 🙂 on Facebook.) :
“Delta blues singer, guitarist, songwriter.
It’s difficult to imagine the blues rock revolution (not to mention modern blues) without the influence of Skip James….the songs themselves, the motifs, the style of singing.”
Remember poor Alan Wilson of “Canned Heat”? He clearly modeled his singing on that of Skip James. He is the coming to mind right now, but there are certainly more.
