Led by harpman/vocalist Speedo Jones and a cast of characters that reads like a New York City 'blues who', the Blues Blasters have somehow remained strangers to vinyl, until now.
On the occasion of Speedo's 30th birthday, the Blues Blasters assembled for a gig at Trax and, along with special guests Kim Simmonds and Delmar Evans, decided to give Speedo a real party blast-off. The five songs featured on this LP are but a fraction of more than three hours 'worth of bluesin' that went down this night.
Psycho Ward and Everybody Say They Love Me (But Nobody Love Me At All That Much), both Speedo Jones' originals feature his plaintive vocals, while Lucille gives Delmar Evans a chance to stretch out his throat. Kim Simmonds is heard on Side 2, and check out his slide work on The Breeze as well as his guitar on the classic Louisiana Blues! The Blues Blasters provide solid backing throughout, making this night one for the books in the annals of 'City Blues'.
