This is in two questions with the answers leading to a "twist". The second question will not be asked, until the first question is answered. 1. Is anyone familiar with Blues artist "Floyd Council"

Hey Suz,

I love trying to get into someone's mind.

Floyd Council = a very obscure buesman from either Nothern South Carolina or from Mid - Georgia

Pink Anderson = same thing as Floyd Council.


Thus the naming of Pink Floyd.

Did I bust ya'?

Actually two separate persons:


Floyd Council (September 2, 1911–May 9, 1976) was an American blues musician. Floyd was born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina to Harrie and Lizzie Council. Floyd began his musical career on the streets of Chapel Hill in the 1920s with his two brothers, Leo and Thomas.
According to a 1969 interview, Floyd stated he had recorded 27 songs over his career, seven of them backing Blind Boy Fuller. Floyd suffered a stroke in the 1960s which partially paralyzed his throat muscles and slowed his motor skills but he apparently remained quite sharp in mind nevertheless. Floyd moved to Sanford, North Carolina where he died of a heart attack in 1976.


Pink Anderson (1900–1974) was a blues singer and guitarist, born on February 12, 1900 in Laurens, South Carolina. After being raised in Spartanburg (in NW South Carolina), he joined Dr. Kerr of the Indian Remedy Company in 1914 to entertain the crowds (sing, dance, tell jokes in the early days) while Kerr tried to sell a concoction purported to have medicinal qualities. In 1916, in Spartanburg, Anderson met Simmie Dooley, from whom Pink learned to be a blues singer. When Anderson was not travelling with Dr. Kerr, he and Dooley would play small gatherings in Spartanburg and neighboring communities.

After Dr. Kerr retired in 1945, Anderson stayed pretty much close to home in Spartanburg, keeping his musical talents in tune with a small guitar and harmonica. Heart problems forced Anderson to retire in 1957. Pink's son, known as Little Pink Anderson is currently a bluesman in Georgia. Anderson recorded some songs in the 1960s and appeared in the 1963 film The Bluesmen.



When Syd Barrett was looking for a band name, he originally chose the name "The Pink Floyd Sond" later shortened to PF

I didn't know any of that Pink Anderson business, but I can handle the Steely Dan question.

It's from Naked Lunch by William Burroughs. Maybe you didn't really want a reply?

How did the Doors get their name.
I heard a Jim Morrison interview and he said ..." cause we all got big knobs."

Who, what, when, where and why did the Who get their name?

The Who was the the Detours before Keith was brought in to replace Doug Sandom in 1963 and change their name to the Who because the Detours was being used by a more succesful band. ( i thought it also had something to do with people questioning the bands name and when told, replied "the who?" )

The Daltrey-Townshend-Entwistle-Moon lineup remained intact from 1963 until late 1978, when Moon died, making them one of the longest-running bands with no personnel changes in rock history. (thanks to Ron Crandall, rmc@psuvm.psu.edu )

Since we've gotten off the "True Blues" topic:

Alright, all theses blues posts. I am a longtime ABB fan, who used to "tolerate" the long blues jams to hear the "hits". Now I find myself skipping by the "hits" to enjoy the long bluesy james, songs like Stormy Monday and Soul Shine.

So what would you suggest to a blues neophyte like myself, to broaden my musical tastes ?

Thanks

For this bunch they all were quite easy. Hey blues neophyte try the three kings of the blues BB, Freddie and Albert to start with. Pink Anderson and Semie Dooley recorded down in Atlanta from where the classic "Tip Out Tonite" comes from in the late 20's. Reportedly the producer loved Pink but hated Semie. Pink danced with the one who brought him and was eventually revived from obscurity by Pink Floyd. Little Pink Anderson (he's really about 6'2") is a heck of a player and crowd pleaser. Come on Susie if that's the best you can do. Here's one for you. What's 2 + 2 ? Lol!

That is correct, I'll give you the point even without answering the main question.

The answer to the main question is Graig Nettles. On Sept. 7, 1974, the Yankees' Graig Nettles hit a home run against the Detroit Tigers. The next time up, he hit a broken-bat single. Tigers catcher Bill Freehan scrambled for the six superballs that came bouncing out. Nettles was called out on the broken bat play but his earlier HR was allowed and the Yankees won the game 1-0. He claimed the bat was given to him by a fan in Cleveland and this was the first time he had used it. No punnishment was handed out.

I always thought "The Anderson Council" would be a great name for a Floyd tribute/cover band.

I'm sure lots of people on this site are big enough music geeks to know the answer to that question - but how many are big enough geeks to actually have some Pink Anderson and Floyd Council in their collections?

I'll be back in a minute . . .

Back.

I thought I had one Floyd Council track on a compilation somewhere, but I couldn't find it.

Anyway, I posted four files here:

http://naprapathicmedicine.com/temp/music/

Pink Anderson solo, guitar and vocal:

Baby, Please Don't Go - a popular blues cover, here in a delta style.

Pink on guitar and background calls, with a guy named Slimmie Dooley on vocals:

C.C. & O. Blues - this has more of an East Coast style.

And, while I was digging through my old blues, I just had to post a couple of Lonnie Johnson tracks - talk about a truly unsung hero. Whenever I happen upon a discussion about Robert Johnson this and Robert Johnson that, I just sort of sigh.

These were recorded 6-7 years before RJ's famous sessions:

Handful of Riffs
Hot Fingers
(both w/Eddie Lang on rhythym guitar)

I tried to link all of the songs directly, but that wasn't successful. If you got the folder above, though, they're all there.

Oh well. Enjoy.
