Those tracks are taken from a two hours tapes we recorded....we used two little marshall 1 watt amplifiers with gibson and carvin guitars.......sorry folks if you have to support me singing and playing with John, but i decided to share this to demonstrate how John could be amazing with just a guitarin his hands and me backing...this is one of my best memories i have with John, and then, you know, playing with the man is one of the higlights of my unprofessional carrer as a player and singer (another one was when i played with my band at the local atlantic 40 years anniversary). Last thing is the situation in the house that night..... John and myself were playing pretty drunk and smoked, Greg Douglass was watching, Mark Neilsen (Kingfish drummer) was sleeping on the couch, Novato Frank doin'.... you can imagine, and a bunch of girls were hangin' around in the house, pretty devasteted......And i almost forgot, in those 2 night i had the chance to play the guitar that Link Wray gave to John as a gift....
