Lowell Felson, a bluesman whom B.B. King admired as a "sleeping giant.Tramp" is one of his most important songs in the history of black music, connecting blues to hip-hop as the "original funk blues".
Trump is not the Queen of Spades or a bumbling presidential nominee, he's a vagabond (but he owns three Cadillacs).The card shows the ultimate power of the blues.This is an unprecedented album that not only conveys the blues, but also the flow of the great black music river already.It's blues, but funk.This funk beat was later used in large quantities in hip-hop, demonstrating the continuing presence of black music in all directions.There was a lot of deep blues, and Lowell, a singer with an amazing blues voice, was standing on the stage.I'm a guitarist, but most of all I'm a blues singer, so if you don't feel like the blues unless your guitar is blaring, goodbye.
If you listen to this album and the excellent album of Lowell's early blues, you will be able to see the development of 100 years of black music.A musical experience that takes you from the blood on the farm to the back door of a dilapidated urban dwelling.
