Mama Blues  performed by  Alvino Rey  (1961)
Composed by Salty Holmes
From: USA
Mood: goofy, but fun
Recommended by delicado [profile] on Tuesday 8th January 2002

From an excellent early hi-fi album, this is a hilarious slow blues number in which Alvino makes his steel guitar talk. In fact, he has a conversation with it. In spite of what you might think, this actually stands up to repeated listening, unlike the 'Talking Guitar' records made later in the sixties by Pete Drake, which I find harder to handle. Incidentally, I've never heard an Alvino Rey record I wasn't astounded by.
