During the 60's Gatemouth led the house band of the famous TV Show Hoss Allen's titled The !!!! Beat. Broadcasted from Nashville, The !!!!Beat was certainly the first ever R&B TV programme for during two years featured only Black Artists, some of the best blues, R&B, Soul artists of the time. Gatemouth is present at each show and this is while he was regularly in Nashville that he recorded the tracks on this record. His band was certainly Hoss Allen's house band (Johnny Jones on g; Skippy Brooks on keys ...). The show had to stop because a big amount of complaints from TV viewers about Hoss Allen's being a "niggers lover", the fact that it was "disturbing" to see so many Black people on TV and subsequently a lack of announcers. Today those programmes are highly praised all over the world. Filmed in 35m/m those shows are available thanks ro stunning DVD's at Bear Family's.

Thank you Gerard for your comment. I have seen most of the The Beat shows and they are great. The most enjoyable are the interludes when Gatemouth gets to do his thing.
Als in the house band was Billy Cox from The Band Of Gypsies/Hendrix.

thanks for this rare lp, it was blusier than I expected from the title (and that's a good thing).

Thanx for the repost. A personal FAV Blues artist & this is a "new" addition to his collection.

Ciao! For now.

Thank you for this repost. Somehow I missed this record.
Nice to hear that you found a way to stay safely inside and do this this marvelous work.
Is there a audible difference between the LP and the CD (besides the pops and crackles)?

@ Smokey,
Can't really say as I don't think I've ever listened to the Cd. It was something picked up at flea market and forgotten about until I compared Discogs to what I have in my collection. CD should be very easy to find online
