Recorded in the very same sessions than The Real Folk Blues (66), this production by Ralph Bass had to wait until 1991 to see the light. It’s not only a collection of outtakes, or at least it shouldn’t be it, since the block shines in strength and coherence.

Moderated and storyteller’s graceful blues (“This Land Is Nobody’s Land”, “House Rent Blues”) and trotting, virulent boogies (“Deep Blue Sea”, “Mustang Sally & GTO”). All with the master’s guitar marking the time in a hypnotic and sparkling way, specially in “Catfish”.

Well deserved exhumation of a much more than advisable album.

Mustang Sally bought a GTO
