LuckyFunky said...

the album is wonderful but the quality of the sound is verry bad - can you please reup with a better quality

Albert said...

Hi, Is He Little Mack Simmons ? Thank you for your answer...

Xyros said...

I haven't listend to it yet, will do later on,but the rips from KansasJoe are good and it wouldn't surprise me if it was a crappy pressing to begin with.

KansasJoe said...

@LuckyFunky: You are right. Even my original rip is distorted. I'll rip it again.

Xyros said...

Thank you KansasJoe

@ Albert

Quote Wikipedia: "[Mack]Simmons left the music industry for the ministry in the 1960s and was rarely heard for the next 30 years, notwithstanding an album he recorded in 1975 in Paris."

Knowing record labels habit of finding obscure material, anything is possible.

Xyros said...

@ Albert, yes this is Mac Simmons.

LuckyFunky said...

thanks for the reup with better quality

Yes, Chicago bluesman and harp player Little Mack Simmons also turned to become a preacher in the 1970's. Unfortunately he was also a drug dealer with material hidden in his church! He went to jail for a couple of years before resuming his blues career with recording excellent late albums on Wolf and ElectroFi.

Thank you for the new rip!

So this is Little Mac Simmons. I had no idea he was also a Rev. and recorded spiritual blues. Thanks also for the reup. I d/l this yesterday but hadn't unpacked it, so I just replaced it now.

Xyros said...

I had a quick listen to a couple tracks to compare the reup to the original post and it's far better. Though it's not my sort of music it makes a welcome change to the weekly routine.
Thank you Gerard for the info on Mac Simmons and we should be greatful that he was a better harmonica player than drugs dealer.

Albert said...

Thank you Xyros and Gerard to open my mind...What a life he had...

Gerard Herzhaft said...

@Xyros: Thanks. In fact, Mack was not a bad drug dealer either. At the end of the 1960's, Mack relocated himself on the Mexican border where he made a living with the drug traffic, earning enough money to go back to Chicago, buy a club and a recording studio. His P.M. label features several good singles by himself and by others like the excellent singer Arelean Brown whose her witty I'm a streaker is a local winner. His religious feelings turned him as a preacher, running a church in Chicago where faith mixed with drug traffic. And in the early 1980's he was arrested by the FBI and served a several years in jail sentence!!!
