Happy Thanksgiving all  50 of you.  I remember Thanksgiving celebrations at the Cafe' au Go Go where I was blessed and fortunate enough to feed 500 people at the Annual Blues Bags.  Now most of the OLDE Players are gone, Muddy Waters, Otis Spann, Jimi Hendrix, Freddie Neil, Andy Kulberg, Dave Van Ronk, and so many more great blues/folk players.  Those legendary days in the Village 60's laid the foundation for the music and theatre of today, but you know what? THERE IS JUST AS MUCH TALENT HERE TODAY and many more ways to express oneself.  Have fun and hug your brothers and sisters and thank the great spirit for being HERE NOW.

Eric Clapton met b.b. King at my Cafe' au Go Go one Thanksgiving Weekend Blues Bag and Jammed till the early morning hours and vowed to each other that one day they would make an album together.  They cut "Riding With the King" last year and received a Grammy for their effort.  The liner notes mention The Cafe' au Go Go as the place they met when Eric was playing there with The Cream and B.B. was on the bill with the Blues Bag that Thankgiving in 1965 when the augogo brought the Blues to New York in a way never done before.  The event was recorded and released in parts on MGM/Verve/Folkways who sponsered the event and launched the Blues Project and Richie Havens and Tim Hardin.  I am thankful that after all these years there is still ongoing recognition of that Fantastically beautiful event where young and old enjoyed the BLUES in a way unrivaled in musical history.
