JUNE 16, 2012!


by Harry Manx & Kevin Breit 

Listen to the harp and electric guitar over the "Bobby Gentry" style-acoustic!  Nice work!

A new Harry Manx and Kevin Breit CD is always full of eclectic musical delights, and for Strictly Whatever each of the two guitarists brought a number of different original songs to the table, plus unique covers of Bobby Hebb’s classic, “Sunny;” and the John Lee Hooker chestnut, “Mr. Lucky.”

Speaking of John Lee Hooker and Bobby Hebb, the editor of this blog just wrote the liner notes to a new John Lee Hooker DVD taped in 1974.

We were thinking of adding the Battle records John Lee Hooker tracks as a "bonus" but maybe on another CD, an audio of John Lee's we're negotiating for right now.  This will happen WHEN we verify that these are the tracks Bobby told me he played on for John Lee Hooker.

From the liner notes: 

On Saturday, July 6, 1974, Mississippi-Delta bluesman John Lee Hooker was one of the star attractions at an all-day festival attended by 6,000 people. The event in the town of Gardner Massachusetts was called "Down in the Dumps" perhaps the first in what was proposed as a series of musical events to be held in the city landfill area. Luckily, very luckily, Hooker's performance was captured on a three camera shoot and broadcast on cable television in local cities and towns.
