I'd also get "....Of the Blues," which was originalltyt on ABC/Bluesway, and
has been recently reissued. It contains IMHO the single finest moment of
George on record, a tune called, "Blues For Reverend King." I'll never
forget the first time I heard it after buying it in a cut out bin in 1974,
and I had NEVER heard blues played on a chromatic like he did on that tune,
and I still get chills from hearing him playing that tune!
