I heard a song this morning as I pulled into my work and didn't hear the end of it as I was running a bit late and figured I could Google it later. Well, that didn't work, so now I'm asking you guys. [more inside]
There are a couple of scenes in the 1986 Walter Hill film Crossroads
in which Eugene's character plays some really bluesy, laid-back, heavily-reverbed slide guitar. I really love this kind of blues guitar. Unaccompanied (by vocals or other instruments), haunting, chilled-out. Can you recommend similar performances? [more inside]

"Blues For A Rotten Afternoon" CD filter: can anyone tell me who is singing/playing on "If The Sea Was Whiskey" on this CD? The promo says "No matter what causes the pain, sometimes the only answer seems to be diving into a sea of drink, as Willie Dixon prepares to do in 'If the Sea Was Whiskey.'" Here's a link to a page with samples from all the tracks on this (great) CD.
It doesn't sound like Willie Dixon to me, and the track listing says "Willie Dixon Tribute." Thanks!
20 years ago, at a concert in Toronto, Etta James sang a song that my partner fell in love with. To the best of her recollection it had the lyric, "why was was I born green, instead of blue -like everybody else?" I've googled around but can't narrow my results down to anything useful.
Does anyone know what the title of this song might be and if there is a recording of it available?
