Koko Taylor,
The Earthshaker

Koko Taylor was the definition of a belter. Her powerful voice is perfect for blues. Earthshaker (Alligator Records, 1978) is one of our latest additions to the SLC Music Library’s blues collection. Check it out!

Broadside Ballads from the Bodleian libraries hosts a great collection.  I am especially impressed by the fantastic illustration archive, divided into neat and specific categories.  Go look!

The University of California’s English Broadside Ballad Archive is also a fantastic project, with a dedicated team making previously hard to find (on microfiche or in archive) broadsides available to everyone, and transcribed to modern eyes and ears.  Amazing.  What we have online is amazing.

You think it is one instrument? It is a hundred instruments!

Anton Rubinstein on the tonal possibilities available at the piano (via sonateharder)

Compare with Segovia: “The piano is a monster that screams when you touch its teeth.” I think they were both correct.
