HomeBluesBukka White: “Poor Boy Long Way From Home” Carl September 15, 2012 Blues 7 Comments Bukka White’s bio is interesting, particularly the involvement of John Fahey. You can hear White’s influence in his music. Please check it out. Some bios say that White’s young cousin is none other than B.B. King, and that White gave him his first guitar. Here are Fixin’ to Die Blues and two songs — Aberdeen Mississippi Blues and another version of Poor Boy A Long way From Home. I am not a guitarist, but I’ve never seen anyone play slide that way.
