Goodbye Blues !

First of all: MERCI/THANK YOU/DANKE SCHÖN/MOLTE GRAZIE/GRACIAS/OBRIGADO/BEDANKT for your comments, emails, proposals etc… !!!!

Oh d’you remember ‘Boot Hill’ by Sly Williams posted last month ?
Well, here’s the real Jesse Allen !
"Goodbye Blues" and "Let’s Party" contain the same great surging guitar work and crying vocals as "I Believe" and "Boot Hill", with a strong flavor of Guitar Slim, no doubt due to the fact that Allen and Slim were both centred around the New Orleans area (Slim was born in Mississippi but always had a New Orleans inflection in his vocals). The instrumental lineup (guitar, bass, drums, sax) and the tone on these 2 Allen titles suggest that "Boot Hill" and "I Believe in a Woman" were recorded around the same time.
Anyway, enjooooooooooooy.
