Eddie Taylor - Same


Home made comp that I picked up at record fair for next to nothing. Seller told me that it was made for him by the editor of an English R&B magazine ... could be. The live tracks are the interesting ones and the quality is very good.

Thank you for this one. It's been a while since I've seen 'new' Jimmy Rogers, so I'm very excited to hear this!

The live session in Greenville (is it the true location? No trace at all of this) 1972 is quite good and very rare. It is in no discography at all, probably a bootleg, although the sound is quite OK. Has anybody an idea of who is playing with Eddie? He is backed by second guitar, bass and drums. Sometimes the backing guitarist reminds me of Lacy Gibson???

@Gerard, I've placed your question in a blues forum ... maybe they can help out also.

@Gerard, it seems that the live tracks are unknown in the collectors circle. People who knew Eddie at the time agree that it was taped in 1972. Most likely recorde in the same period as the Advent LP was recorded. The band is most likely a pick up band as they are not really familiar with the songs played.
Perhaps the best thing is that the music has been passed onto Eddie's family who look after his musical legacy. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Big-Town-Play-Boy-Eddie-Taylor-Sr/144962995632769

Thanks Xyros... I still doubt this has been recorded "live" in a Greenville club in 1972 without the adequate equipment. I agree this comes from post-Advent LP of course but I'm suspicious it has been recorded either in LA or in Chicago, maybe for the promo of the LP...
