Streetcar named 'Desire" ... true

Recommended Posts

An abandoned streetcar named Desire (middle window sill) under Detroit-Superior Bridge, Cleveland. OH.

Came to my mind, " What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but human heart, oh, no, it's curved like a road through mountains." - Tennesse Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire.

Very nice. 

 

There is a line in Josh White's blues, Where were you Baby? which goes,

 

"I tried to take up with,

A streetwalker named desire.

Her prices were up so high

I couldn't afford to try her,

But where you baby...."

Dan -

 

Even though he was so "clean and precise" in his playing (and of course a marvelous, expressive voice), vs. so many of the Delta and Piedmont style bluesmen, he was always my favorite.  I have most of his recordings (none of his "Pinetop Tim"), and emulated his guitar style, beginning in the early '60s.
