Good morning night owls.
Has anyone picked up sounds from their distant past they have now given a 2nd spin?
2 artists have found their way back home courtesy of some cool used shops.
1- Mississippi Fred McDowell, I had his LP "I do not play RocknRoll" which ironically was covered verbatim by 1 noteworthy artist called the Rolling Stones (they covered McDowell's "You Got To Move"). I was just floored all over again & cant imagine how I did without his brilliant slide/vcls all this time....(whew!)....Highly recommended. Now if I could just find a vinyl version.
2- Cactus, early 70's proto metal, blues & rock, 1/2 from Detroit & 1/2 from NYC. I picked up an anthology on rhino which tends to do good mastering. I am still impressed by this bands ability to just kick butt. They never went the miracle mile because they never wrote a or had the luck with a blockbuster hit. Musically, they were on par with any of their competitiors (ZEP, Beck Group, MC5, Cream etc...)
I probabbly traded my vinyl lps for other stuff along the way & now I wish I had them.
