Long John Baldry - Long John's Blues (1964)

Long John Baldry - Long John's Blues, 1964 United Artists (mono)

  Here is little piece of early British R&B magic...Long John's Blues was his debut album from 1964 and is a fine little album that will keep your toes tapping and your broken heart from mending !  Historically Long John was one of Britains most exciting and enduring live acts. Although this album contains many of the staples like "Got My Mojo Working," "Dimples," and "Hoochie Coochie Man" but it is his interpretation and versions that have always keep me so addicted to this album.  Long John's Blues stands proud among the most essential British blues albums of them all.
