    A first play of this special US issue that was a 'must buy' for me despite having obtained a M- Oz copy only a couple of months ago.

    I saw Roy live in February 1988 only a few months after the release of this his final album so now it's like coming full circle almost 35 years later!

    Hot Wires 1987

    First listen to this album today. I liked it but it is not straight up blues...

    Chris Thomas King – Me, My Guitar And The Blues

    Label: Blind Pig Records – BPCD 5064
    Format:
    CD, Album
    Country: US
    Released: 1999
    Genre: Blues

    That is not a negative thing but it is equally soulful...

    A great album by a great new blues artist. I have both of his but I like his first one (this one) a little better. I think he's going to have a great future.

    This was my first full listen and I enjoyed it a lot! I haven't heard the other, I'll stream that now. I'll likely end up purchasing both.

    Re B.B. King Lucille. By "going rate" you mean what did I pay for it new in 1995? Back then I think I paid right around $40 for it new. Paid the same for the Showdown LP I posted also. Bought from the same place (my local Linn dealer at the time). I also bought some MoFi Moody Blues.

    Just got this Proper Box in the mail , I already own probably at least 85 of the 100 tracks but needed those to complete the collection.
    It's nice to hear all of his participation in one listening session too
