20 September 1979
I have no idea what that is, but I hit like 'cause I'm guessing I would.
It's a pretty good compilation with the first record covering Mississippi and Memphis Blues, while the second record is Chicago. I didn't realize before but all the tracks seem to have been recorded in 1976 so I'm guessing the TV documentary was made up of these new performances.
My kind of blues. Thanks Jez.

I love material like this. Modern west coast stuff, that digs into the past. Just the right amount of jump, smoothness or greasiness, and either blues or R&B.
And the dude is connected, and has some great guitar players recording with him.
