This is in reply to The Harp Unstrung's post of Taj Mahal and Keb Mo doing "Diving Duck Blues".
I've seen Keb Mo several times live. Not only is he talented, but he seems like a genuinely great guy. Here's an anecdote that I thought was pretty cool:
Various artists got together to do a tribute to Johnny Cash. Each was to perform a Cash song. Keb Mo was asked to do "Folsom Prison Blues". He said, "I'm sorry, but I can't do that song." They asked why, and he said, "Well, I'm a Christian, and I don't feel comfortable singing the line, '...But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die...' " So whomever it was that he was talking to said, "Well, CHANGE it!" So Keb did perform the song, but changed that line to, '...But I shot a man in Reno, and I still don't know why...' " I thought that was pretty cool.
Here's a fun song from Taj Mahal's "Oooh, So Good and Blues" album from 1973. "Built For Comfort"...
Coolest version of "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend."
That’s great !
1967 From the first BS&T album with Al Kooper.....
The Rhino--Paul Gilbert
I am fairly sure that the Tower of Power horn section did the horns on this song.
ToP Horns were EVERYwhere, and we’re all richer for it.
Mama Told Me Not To Come
Take your pick.
The original by Eric Burdon (solo) or the Three Dog Night cover.
I just uploaded a Hootie cover. I played my Alembic, it sounds pretty good?
