    Hound Dog was the very first record I bought when it came out. A vinyl 78! Part of the reason I wanted to play guitar! :D

    There's a lot of controversy over this song. This recording with Pete "Guitar" Lewis and the Johhny Otis band is thought to be the original. The song was based on a riff that Pete Lewis came up with. Pete Lewis was an amazing session man for Johnny Otis. He sadly ended his life penniless, living on the streets of Los Angeles.

    Not sure what you're asking but here is some more info about Pete "guitar" Lewis.

    And my favourite song with him playing. More feeling in one note that I can get in a whole song.

    I'm with Stuart. Heard it before. You wet behind the ears/youngsters with spots may have missed it, but us old dogs have been there.

    Next thing you'll be telling me is Hoyt Axton's mom wrote Heartbreak Hotel. ;)

    Wasn't this from one of those blues package tours of Britain? For some reason the people in charge of the TV special dressed everyone up in overalls & "country" type clothes as that was what they believed "the blues is all about". Sad really.

    I wonder if any of them ever told B.B. that it was wrong that he wore a suit when playing the blues? :rolleyes:

    I wonder if you're referring to the Blues and Gospel Train (1964)? - though Sister Rosetta Tharpe was certainly well dressed! Clips from the American Folk Blues Festival, which toured Europe and the UK annually for several years from 1962 suggest that the artistes were very sharply turned out. One example:

    The one staged on the disused railway station? No I don't mean that one - Rosetta was wearing what looked like an expensive fur coat wasn't she? No the one I mean was where they created a fake "front porch" on a film set somewhere. Bizarre, & rather patronising too. I think it was from a time when British blues fans had almost forgiven the likes of Muddy for abandoning the purity of the acoustic guitar for the horrors of the electric guitar. They were only 20 years behind the times....

    I think it was guitarists such as Clapton, Peter Green and Stan Webb who made jeans and plimsolls de rigeur for blues players in the UK, though John Mayall did enforce a more formal dress code for a while:
