Thanks for the Sonny Rhodes. I have a couple of his tunes on a blues compilation, but this is my first true introduction.
Solid guitar playing, and while his singing isn't as charismatic as other, more famous blues singers, he def has some down-home soul. Will look into obtaining his later work for sure.

Far out! Thank you so much!

His singing "Not as charismatic as others"?!?! Sonny is THE best, the only blues singer lefton the scene. If he's not "charismatic" enough for you, maybe you should try Justin Bieber.

Excellent album !
A message for Franck GOLDWASSER = PARIS SLIM :
As a teenager (born in 1965)I saw SR in Reims in a small coffee in the 80's.
He played Steel Guitar and "sa 12 cordes" and in my memory he was (and actually still is !) great! I remind that a local vendeur de disque moustachu "prénom LECUYER" avait organisé le concert et embrassé Sonny en fin de concert.Je dois à ce disquaire la découverte de Soul Bag et les CHESS Blues master series mais également le Smokey Wilson chez Bigtown avec sa belle pochette :Il me donna le numéro de 1979 avec Johnny Guitar WATSON en couverture et depuis je suis tjs abonné...Je me souviens m^me de vos réponses au blind test !!
Franck, accompagniez-vous Sonny à ce concert ?
Avez-vous des photos de ce concert ?Bien à vous. Bluesy Yours
