Al Kooper - one of the seminal figures of the New York scene in the late Sixties - was a ubiquitous multi-instrumentalist and producer. He was also a talent scout, as became apparent when he discovered the remarkable guitarist and singer Shuggie Otis.

After working with Bob Dylan and creating Blood, Sweat & Tears, Kooper began to devote more time to producing other musicians. Among the first results of this activity was a superb 1969 album that showcases the talents of Shuggie, then just 15-years old.

The lads youthful enthusiasm and energy blends with Koopers more mature musical contribution on keyboards on a selection of songs and blues jams. The pair are backed by a solid house band on the rave up gospel number Bury My Body, and the styles vary from the funk of a Booker T & The MGs cover, to the traditional blues of Shuggies Old Time Slide Boogie with its nifty piano and slide guitar duet.

A satisfying blues bash, full of musical surprises
