Hey, cool. HOODOO MAN BLUES is one of the best harp albums -- Junior was
NOT kidding when he said he didn't need no brand new bag.

Jr's sound, like that of most harp players, has a lot less to do with his
setup than with his sound. Take away his mic and his amp and you still hear
that amazing tone -- listen to ALONE AND ACOUSTIC. He had that very thick,
deep tone, combined with his staccato stripped-to-the-rhythm type of
playing, and that's what it's about.

>b) any books I can get on some of his songs, harp tabs etc.

I can't think of any. Anyone else?
