Cracking the Code of Cray

(photo:www.highergroundmusic.com)






Listening to this "As the Years Go Passing By" performance by Albert King, it struck me that this tune could be the pattern for many of Robert Cray's tunes and singing style.

Listen to the vocal melodies and phrasing. No bad on Cray-- it's admirable how he built a niche for himself from something so basic. It's also amazing what an influence Albert King is.

SRV's "Dirty Pool" also strongly derives from this tune. Clapton cut his Blues teeth on "Born Under a Bad Sign".
