Roots Of Blues -- The Mississippi Sheiks „Sitting On Top Of T Video Clip

Grateful Dead - Sittin' On Top Of The World

„Sitting On Top Of The World" (Hawks -- Jefferson - Simmons) Recorded: no details available The Mississippi Sheiks were a popular and influential guitar and fiddle group of the 1930s. They were notable mostly for playing country blues but were adept at many styles of United States popular music of the time, and their records were bought by both black and white audiences. Country blues is often seen as being the domain of individual musicians, a stereotype propagated by the way such delta blues performers as Robert Johnson and Charley Patton have entered the popular consciousness. Of the smaller number of groups playing at the time, the Mississippi Sheiks are among the better known and most influential among their peers. In 2004, they were inducted in the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame. Their 1930 blues single "Sitting on Top of the World" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2008. The Mississippi Sheiks consisted mainly of the Chatmon family, who came from Bolton, Mississippi and were well known throughout the Mississippi Delta; the father of the family had been a "musicianer" during times of black slavery, and his children carried on the musical spirit. Their most famous (although by no means permanent) member was Armenter Chatmon - better known as Bo Carter - who managed a successful solo career as well as playing with the Sheiks, which may have contributed to their success. The band named themselves after Rudolph Valentino's film The Sheik (1921). When the ...

    @ZAGGLETON And the Carpenter's song is different from one recorded in the 1920s by Al Jolson. One cannot copyright a song title. That's the fact, Jack.

    One week ago, yesterday, I saw Joan Osborne at the Coach House, in San Juan Capistrano. She had two great opening acts; the 2nd of which, had a country fiddle. The fiddle player was VERY good, around 55-60 years old, and had never heard of the Sheiks. He has, now.

    I am so glad to see the Mississippi Sheiks posted. I was very fortunate as a musician to have been able to befriend Walter Vinson of the Mississippi Sheiks in the 70's when I was doing blues research as part of a course I was taking. I found Walter Vinson living on the south side of Chicago (I was also from Chicago), and we spent many hours talking and jamming. He was a kind and gentle man, and though he was getting on in years, his voice was still as smooth as ever.

  17. WouldBs says:

    These guys, or their descendants should claim royalty from Rolling Stones every time "You Gotta Move" is played and every time a copy of "Sticky Fingers" is sold or downloaded.

    True Blues!

  22. solea212 says:

    real Blues...

  23. JohnVasco says:

    @WouldBs If you got your facts right, you would know that the Stones correctly attributed 'You Gotta Move' to Mississippi Fred McDowell on the original Sticky Fingers LP, and this attribution is also on the CD of the same name. Also, 'You gotta move' doesn't have the same turnaround at the end of each verse as this song...
