The Blues is Alive & Well in Detroit.
This is an outstanding rendition of Albert King’s song by McCarty & Mystery Train and in my opinion this band deserves more recognition nationally as major blues players outside of the Motor City. McCarty who has been grinding out the rock and these blues since the late sixties doesn’t ever seem for me to get enough mention as being among the best guitarists ever and he is.
Released off the album Detroit Uncut II 1999.
Recorded Live at Henry Ford Community College.
