Mike Bloomfield was a great guitarist. (No, I didn’t watch the long one yet.) There are even videos on his guitars.
He’s drinking a beer in a lot of them. Make sure to follow the people on Twitter who post this stuff.
I would use “Kung Fu Fighting”.
He has written the Consumer Guide for decades and also several books. I strongly recommend his website and newsletter.
Here’s are YouTube compilations of Shindig! which was on TV from 1964-1966. I preferred it to Hullaballoo, the other rock and roll show from the era. As I recall, Shindig! was less structured.
This is a great box set of music on Specialty Records. There are lots of reissues of individual artists, too.
The Drive-By Truckers are a great band. If you don’t know them, start with 2003’s Decoration Day. Here’s information on their upcoming album. It has a link to the YouTube video of the title track.
I was not a fan of James Brown growing up. In the early days of CDs, there was a CD called The CD of JB. I got it and have been buying all of the great reissues ever since. I think Brown has had even more influence on modern music than the Beatles.
Drums are a key part of his sound and he had many great drummers.
