John Hammond "s/t" - 1962

What about a "last-Sunday-before-Christmas'" Blues selection? This one goes out to my friend Nico, I'm sure you'll love this one...

John Hammond is a traditional solo Blues artist. This is his first ever release, 45 years ago on Vanguard.
On this self-titled LP, the guy goes into immortal classics (by Blind Lemon Jefferson, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry and so many others) with his own view and passion.

John Hammond plays honest and tries to stay true to the original songs he covers.
I really like the version he does of "Hoochie Coochie Man", so I decided to throw it in the player. No guitar this time, but the man, a mere harmonica and the spirit of the Blues!
