Noah Zacharin The Essential Blues Recordings (27) RE: The Essential Blues Recordings 23 Dec 99

hey rick, if you mean the album entitled 'folksinger' (for some strange reason) that included his version of "come back baby", i say YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. great work from a figure larger than life. also essential is early john lee hooker (before his beauty was co-opted by pop stars who wanted to be able to say "recorded with JLH". this latter comment is probably a little overly cynical, but what do you want. the first club gig i went to was age 15 with a few high school buds. the esquire show bar in montreal, cool club which would periodically lose its liquor licence for serving minors. i was fortunate that john lee hooker was booked during one of those lacunae. i slipped in, sat a few yards from him, was indelibly marked by the truth and sex and power in what he was doing. also need leadbelly. AND REVEREND GARY DAVIS AT NEWPORT is a tremendous reminder of what one man, vox, guit can do. stunning album. that's it for now.
