Mistabluesman loves his baby's wiggle when she
walks but he sorta' gets mad and walk's out the
door. Problem is, he has no place to go! He meets
up with some other baby doll and it scares the
hell out of him so, he does the spin around and
sings his Blues on back.
"One Shoe Blues"
little story about the day I woke up with a
hangover and couldn't find but one of my shoes.
Had a lot going on that day and had a hell of a
party the night before.
this jam is what one should expect when a Bluesman
such as myself gets down and funky. I took a lil'
Blues, a whole lota' soul and threw in some
Country lyrics - Whammo! - "Funky Country Blues".
I originally wrote this to be pure Country but
with my roots stemming Country Gospel with a tad
of deep south black gospel blues I guess I
couldn't help but to record it as you hear it. I
hope you enjoy the piece as much as I did
preparing and playing it for you
"Size Fifteen Shoes"
Mistabluesman is out walkin' again, wearin' out
these size fifteen shoes. These dang women just
always givin' me da' blues. One take, guitar and
vocal, just as a live performance! It was fun. In
set in my mind that I was in a lil' jook (Ground
setting there playing for a room full of friends
and you know who the friends were that I pictured
in my mind, it was "Ya' All".
live concert like jam with
Cliff "Big Red Blues Dawg" Houck
- (Slideman) and I on stage performing Cliff's
kick butt blues rocker "Road House". This
collaboration was so much fun that at times I can
almost see us on stage playing it, crazy huh! The
effect of the concert seems so real. See what you
think when you listen to the jam.
This instrumental was
written by Freddie Thomas and I (Doc
Quinn) back in
1973. Freddie and I played the wheels off of this
tune for several years but, here it is at its
best. Recorded by the
Blues AllStars - The Nashville Sessions
in Sept. of 2002 at the
Kitty Wells Museum and Studio (Junction Recording
Nashville, TN. I
am kicking this tune off playing rhythm on my
Fender Strat guitar. Bob Huston is playing second
rhythm guitar and
Bill House lays
the bass guitar in there with us.
tj Gere added the backup
Mike "Ironman" Curtis
blessed the tune with his killer harmonica. The
guitar lead (as if you couldn't tell) was so
nicely played by the one and only
Matt Thorpe. It took
this tune 29 years from it's birth to make it into
the studio. Sound Tech.
Jasper Mills. Expertly
produced by Matt Thorpe. The rest of the Blues
AllStars (The Nashville Session) that were in
attendence and on several of the other jams that
were recorded during the session are,
Kevin Paul (Stik),
Larry MeGill. This recording of
Freddie's Blues is the best recording you will
ever hear this classy blues instrumental played
and by none less than some of the best bluesmen
that ever walked the face of our earth. Thank you
my blues brothers and dear friends!
Winner for week 139 -
"Hot To Trot"
this Blues Rocker I play my
1991 USA Fender Strat.
This lil' jam has rocked the charts all over the
internet and gets no less than 600 to 800 plays on
any given day! When I recorded the lead guitar on
this jam I had my eyes closed and was just
wondering about my studio. I had more fun than a
barrel of monkeys sharing a keg of beer writing
and recording this jam. I hope you like the tune!
"Down, Down, Down"
this down and out Blues instrumental I sound out
with my guitar just exactly how my soul and heart
are feeling. I know not why a person gets these
down and out moods but, I do know, it's, Da'
Maria Daines Said:
"A down down down song that makes you feel so
good!! I wonder why that is!! Yes it really is
cool with some great touches all over, ripples
along under its own glorious essence and the sound
is vibrant & pure. Ace playing & a great listen".
Cliff Houck Said:
How Sweet it is! Every time I think I've heard
your best, you come up with something even better!
Very nice, Doc! Lovin' the "Blues Groove" & the
licks from the soul. Man, I can't stand it, I
gotta' pick up my ax and jam along! Thanx for
sharin', Doc, Great tune, Your Blues Bud, Dawg.
"Lois Mae Boogie"
For some time now, I have
been wanting to and working on writing a boogie
for my Mother,
Lois Mae. A dear
and long time friend of mine, "Willie
"Pinetop" Perkins" came
out with his
"New Boogie Woogie - Click To Listen"
and for sure his boogie gots my blood runnin'. So,
while my blood is in such good fast forward flow
and all backing tracks are done, here's that
boogie for my Mom. This boogie is appropriately
named "Lois Mae Boogie". My mother has from day
one loved me and supported my music and I love her
as much if not more than any mom in this world
could ever be loved by her son! I love you very much Mom
and this Boogie's for you!
Note: When Willie Perkins
(once a guitar player himself) listened to my
boogie over the phone the night I finished it he
said, "Hell white boy (they all used to call me
lil' white boy, I think Eugene Powell gave me that
name around 59/60, he was a friend of my Father),
I can do that" and then he laughed his butt off!
He said, he liked my
Lowell Fulson style
better. Ya' gotta' love Willie or he'll sound
offensive to ya'. That's just Wilie! This tune
will be included in my new upcoming CD.
"Danny The Sandman"
was written as a poem by my Father Buddy Quinn in
1965, that's 43 year ago. The original title is
Danny Boy! I have always loved this poem and for
years have heard it in my head as I have recorded
it. I list this track for your listening pleasures
and hope you enjoy it. All music on this track was
played by me on my Washburn unplugged acoustic
guitar. Six different guitar tracks! No drums, no
bass, no electronics, just raw down to earth
playin' from the heart. This tune will be included
in my new upcoming CD, "Me & Mr. Quinn".
Father (Buddy Quinn - That's him in the photo on
the left) wrote "Silence" back in 1973. Until his
dying day he claimed that "Silence" was his best
write. He wrote well over 200 pieces of music and
poems, plus a book (Savage Guns). He had me
promise that I would have Silence put on his
headstone and that was done.
Wrote by the Father and recorded thirty two years
later by the son. Thanks for listening, I hope you
enjoyed a few moments of "Silence".
"My Hurt For Natalee"
(Blues/Reggae/??) - It's no
secret that I am a soft hearted whatever folks
want to call me and with that said, I'll share
this out of the ordinary for me jam that I found
in my heart that I reckon stems from my hurting
and her family. Consist of a lil' B3, Elec. Pads,
Block, Wah Ped, Crybaby Ped, Fender Strat, Fender
acoustic bass, Les Paul Special, Ampeg Reverb
Rocket (Tube) and a Washburn acoustic guitar for
the lead mic'd thru a Line6 Pod (setting 6A). Mark
Hewer Said: "Great production! Reggae paradise
here. Jammin' mon! Nice guitar work and the beat
grooves. Thumbs up!"
"Get A Clue Woman"
what can I say, She lied, she cheated, now she's
history and can't come back! She looks better
leaving than she ever did coming anyways! This
little holler is a thing I wrote and recorded to a
Jasper Mills backing track. I hope you like it!
"Laid Way Back"
is just as it's title says. I wrote, recorded and
uploaded this tune while laid way back one
evening. It's just a little laid back jam that
expresses a mood I get into sometimes, I don't
know why but, I guess that's what the blues is all
about, right! I hope you like it as much as I like
playing it for you.
is a lil' thing I wrote back when I owned an
environmental clean up business. I wound up giving
the company to my kids. You'll notice my efforts
to make the lead guitar sound grungy, funky, ugly,
mucky, dirty, dingy, greasy and mean so you the
listener can get somewhat of a feel for the upset
stomach way this cat (The Hazman) can make you
feel. Hope you like the Lil' "THANG"!!
Blue Stella Guitar
and a cheap ass microphone, ($8.29), I set out to
do this authentic blues holler on my acid program
to exercise a lesson I received from Matt Thorpe.
The tune/song/croon/holler is stereo and pans back
and forth and really shows how well the Acid
panning tools work. I dedicate this song to Matt
Thorpe for his patience with me. Please visit my
for some of the best damn blues guitar there is
anywhere, net or live! -
Don't miss out on this -
"Feeling Just Right"
little number is fun to play and has me feeling
just right! I dedicate this tune to Jasper Mills
for his time spent with me in teaching me about
the Sound Forge program.
"Harley D Cadillacin"
This is a crazy thing I
wrote using my
1951 Harley Davidson panhead
for the percussions. Yes, I had my scooter in my
studio. Believe me, it was a rush and I had a kick
ass time doing the jam. I dedicate this tune to my
scooter brothers and all clubs everywhere. To
mention a few names, DJ, my son. Doyle, my
Grandson. My brother Big Dave B. Michael (Davids
Son) and the Hard Riders in Cabot, Arkansas -
in-house pub included, Brother Benny and his gang
out west. Wild Bill T. (Grubby) of No. Ca., Darin
S., the ol' man Mack S. also in the west. Rick A.
of American Thunder, Tulare, Ca., Jessie James and
the gang at West Coast Choppers and the rest of
the best kick startin', throttle twisten', hooter
pinchin', greasy fingered brothers throughout the
world a scooter brother could ever have. This jam
is for ya'll man, play the wheels off of it! Your
brother in the wind!
is about how my Lover girl's eyes tell me what she
is thinking without her having to say a single
word! I think all women have "Tattletale Eyes". As
you will be able to hear, what I done here was
drag out my Washburn acoustic guitar and then drug
the mic. stand over to a chair, sit down and
belted out this tune as I played along with it
(one take, that's the way I like them). All raw
bones down to earth guitar molestation and raw
vocal. It's still one of my most favorites. Hope
you like it and can dig it!
"Go Hard & Aim High"
is an on the gas instrumental with full throttle
around the corners. I am playing a non-amplified
acoustic Washburn guitar here and the louder you
play it the better it gets. Can ya' dig it? I put
this jam together in memory of my father "Buddy
Quinn" (he loved to hear me play fast acoustic
guitar). My Father would always tell me to "Go
Hard & Aim High" no matter what my endeavor was. I
still to this day at times hear him saying "Go
Hard & Aim High" to me!
"Big Red Rooster"
In tribute to the great
legendary Texas Bluesman (Mr. Lighting "Sam"
Hopkins) I wanted to do a blues jam that would
express all blues peoples appreciation for all
that Sam done for the blues peoples in what was
the future to him, that's us! So, with that said
and the help of Gary Ward (1st lead guitar) and
Cliff Houck (2nd lead
slide guitar) we recorded "Tim
Moore's Big Red Rooster".
"Call It Stormy Monday"
a known fact that T. Bone Walker's "Stormy Monday"
has been recorded by more blues artists than any
other blues song there ever was. Mr. T. Bone
Walker, (Texas Legendary Bluesman) was among the
first blues artists to bring the electric guitar
to the recording studio. I have heard just about
all of the "Stormy Monday" recordings over the
past 30 years and just love them all. I think my
most favorite track is BB King and Stevie Ray
Vaughan but, I do love them all. I hope you enjoy
my version. Thanks, Doc
"Stone's Throw From Hell"
This tune/song is a
collaboration effort between myself and
Mr. Cliff Houck. This
song was written by me and inspired by and is
dedicated to James Towner & Veronica Evans. I gave
the song to Cliff Houck in appreciation for all
his efforts! Song Notes:
