This was a sad thing. I was trying (fruitlessly) to find videos of Elmore James. While doing so, I ran across the version of Dust My Broom that is above. The quality of the video is bad, but Steve Thorpe’s playing renders that meaningless.
I decided to wait a bit with James and feature Thorpe, who operated out of the area around The Kennedy Space Center in central Florida. Here are two more songs: She’s With Me and Alan Toussaint’s Sneakin Sally Through the Alley.
The sad part is almost as soon as I stumbled on Thorpe, I read that he passed away in 2010.by
