RARA-AVIS: RE: Blues music

I agree that many people are a bit fuzzy on what the blues actually entails. Just because something follows the "blues formula" ie. repetition of the first line, doesn't make it blues. Neither is R&B blues. Blues does tend to have a rather negative view of things. It is "hurtin' music" without the country twang. I think it is that negative view of things that makes it so appropos to things hardboiled.
