File under: "All Time Greatest Debuts!"

Mac later became known as Dr John, and is of course a staple of the incredibly fertile New Orleans music scene. Before he lost a finger in some sort of fight, Mac's main instrument was guitar; his wild, overdriven tremelo-laden guitar is the driving force of this record, and it hits HARD.

I can't imagine what it must have been like to hear this record upon its release. It STILL sounds outrageous and radical.

from 1959...

one of these puppies just went for 75+ USD on eB. Probably worth it!

I'm a bit late commenting on this one, but it's pretty damn hot isn't it...the feel of it reminded me a little of Ronnie Hawkins + the Hawks doing 'who do you love'.

A fabulous record of course but not an original sound. Bo Diddley all over it no?
