Motown Monday ~ “As The Years Go Passing By” ~ Jim McCarty and Mystery Train

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.

  1. McCarty has been a favorite guitarist since his stint with Cactus, and I find it fun to listen to the old Mitch Ryder songs keying on the guitar licks
