This cat has a serious fucking tone. Like a vibrating fingernail to the sweet chunky blue-tinted part of your brain. These recordings bring it too. Nothing but stripped-down poorly-lit Chicago blues here. Holy shit this rhythm section is primitive and well, it's pretty much ALL rhythm section. The first cut on the B side features a Shakey Jake Magic Sam vocal duet that rubs the tape straight into some rust-belt gravel.
Liner notes say it's a collection of 45s.
Heavy MP3 bitrates up in here from fancy vinyl rip done by (yup) me.
