    A strange, droney instrumental that has a removed, otherworldly feel, as if it were recorded underwater. Great solos, this really shows his genius. The riff at 1:28 is brilliant, absolutely brilliant, and is the kind of thing Kim Wilson really took note of. The rhythmic aspect especially.

    The second half of his solo here (at 1:20) is fantastic, and shows a superior musical intelligence at work!

    An absolutely essential track, although Willie Brown (the one mentioned in "Crossroads") recorded only a handful of tracks.

    Another essential track by Blind Joe Reynolds, later covered by Cream.

    What can I say about Kim Wilson, the greatest living blues harmonica player?

    Johnny was not a songwriter, and so did more covers, but he did write some great blues songs. When he quit the stadium rock scene and went back to the blues he put out this album which is all songs he wrote (as I recall), except the last song which is Muddy's and features Muddy:

    I really like this guy. Plays a lot of 1920s and 30s blues:

    He was using Muddy Water's band, which included James Cotton. He had access to them after he produced 2 of Muddy's albums. Great album.

    Yeah, Johnny, Muddy, and Cotton toured and put on some great concerts. Johnny also produced this album for another aged bluesman, Sonny Terry.
