Don't Ask Me ... I Don’t Know has been around now for about 9 years posting Blues LP’s, some CD’s and whatever else I feel like.
Your help in filling requests or with LP rips are always very welcome and greatly appreciated. Enjoy the music but don't forget to support the artists and labels.
Delta blues vocalist, guitarist, and composer Johnny Shines hadn't yet encountered the physical difficulties that made his final years so troubling when he recorded the 13 selections on this CD. He could still sing and moan with intensity and passion, hold a crowd hypnotized with his remembrances and asides, and play with a mix of fury and charm. While the menu includes oft-performed chestnuts "Sweet Home Chicago," "Terraplane Blues," and "Milk Cow Blues," there wasn't anything staid or predictable about the way Shines ripped through the lyrics and presented the music.
