OT: Sister Rosetta Tharpe

Just caught this on a Dylan site. Interesting read. Prowl through the clips on utoob for some nice tastes of her performing through the years. She could play that guitar just like ringin' a bell. Now we know where Chuck copped part of his style.

A touch of the blues with her. This should be, IMHO, the way the Stones do their tours for now on - nuttin but the basics.

She was great.


I highly recommend the DVD "The Great American Folk Blues Festival - The British Tours". It includes that version of Didn't it Rain posted on the Guardian article.

This one's great too. Anyone here who doesn't know her should check her out.

Sister Rosetta was great and her tone was fantastic. She rocked that SG Custom!

I was embarrassed that I had never heard of her until a couple years ago watching some Women Who Rock thing I think on PBS, and they showed a clip of her (I think the 'Didn't It Rain' at the train tracks clip- AWESOME) and I was like "who is that??" Watch that clip and tell me you don't see some of Keith's (and just about any other guitarist) moves there! And yeah - how many years before Chuck Berry?? You see her influence in everyone from Springsteen (This train...) to many others. I did not realize how big a star she was too for awhile. A collection of her stuff is well worth hunting down. Phenomenal.

I should have said born 100 years ago today, I am sure, I may be wrong.

...called the Godmother of Rock and Roll would have been a hundred years
old today had she lived. She died, 58 years old, (due to a stroke) in October
1973 and was elected in to the Blues Hall of Fame in 2008.

over a brunch of chilaquiles somone told me about Sister Rosetta Tharpe. I'd never heard of her, but this video of a gospel queen arriving in rainy Manchester in 1964 to is just superb. She straps on an electric guitar, and man! I'm sure young Mick and Keith saw this.

Enjoy on a sunday

So SHE was the woman shredding up on the train station.
I saw that in a documentary once, what a place for a show!
