The best of the blues blogs is gone. Like the oil filling every pore of the caribbean shore, the Muddy Sava Riverbank has perished.
You know, I fancy myself something of a connoisseur/collector/scholar when it comes to acoustic blues music, but every single time I went to the Riverbank, I came back a more educated man.
I Been to the River. I Been Baptized.
I'm quite sure it wasn't a planned disappearance. I'm not sure exactly what happened, but I assume the DMCA had something to do with it.
muddy's old site is still around, though it hasn't been updated in a while.
and Muddy's friends also have a blog for electric blues.
but nothing will replace the old Muddy Riverbank.
muddy, ballas, sussez, zivoin, azzul, bluesbird, dreumis - know this: you have made a tremendous project. we will miss you deeply.
and though nothing can replace it, at least this can remember it.
