ABC Wednesday - B is for Blues Traveler


Here we are for a new ABC post.

Blues Traveler is one of my favorite bands (of course I love Beatles too... but they're hors concours, right? LOL). Originally formed in New Jersey in '87, these guys know how to catch your attention and get you addicted forever. John Popper, the composer, singer and harmonica player is the soul behind this band. He's amazingly gifted with three skills: a beautiful, powerful voice, a creativity to elaborate both touching and sharp lyrics, and a furious, sensitive way of playing the harmonica. Add great musicians, and you have BT. This is my choice for today's post.

For more B posts, visit the ABC page , and join the fun!

That must be the most original B this time around - and that is not meant in the negative sense :-)

I actually own Four and one other Blues Traveler album, which I play around John Popper's birthday each year. (But I have WAY more Beatles!) But I'm sure you knew that.

Thanks for coming by.


On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you. - Ramblin' with Roger

Yes, I DO play Popper on or around March 29. the other album I own is Straight On Till Morning, which I think is inferior to Four.

Oh - I'd forgotten about these guys! I had a cd a few years ago - I'm going to have to go find it!

I'm a Blues lover but being from the UK, I don't remember them. I'll have to find out more.
Thanks for the comment on my blog.

Hi, Nydia. Tks for the kisses and the comments. Haven't posted any ABC's yet - guess I'ld better go check that meme out. Don't know the group your touting, at least by name, though am a big fan of the Beatles - came back from an overseas assignment - Japan - back in 1965 and my younger brother asked me what I thought of them. Had to ask him who they were. Oh my.

Oooh, I quite like them! They remind me of Cat Stevens, a bit, and a mix of other people too.
