Tee Hee

Talking to Pat Gilbert in Mojo a couple of months back – an early warning shot in a publicity blitzkrieg of mounting and ultimately horrific intensity – the star of Jeeves & Wooster and House imagined Britain\’s critical elite dipping their quills in venom in anticipation of his forthcoming celebration of the unique capacity of the sufferings of black Americans to alleviate the midlife crisis of the white British millionaire. Sorry, I mean his album of New Orleans blues standards.

Anyone actually wanting some interesting blues rather than this milksop version would be better off with early ZZ Top.

Yes, of course, there\’s huge amounts of better blues out there but even early ZZ Top is better. And as for New Orleans, try Dr. John.
