THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS - Girls Go Wild!
Get ready for some Texas blues, people. Our respect to the late John Fahey and his Takoma label for bringing us exceptional music. The Fabulous Thunderbirds are an electric blues band with Jimmy Vaughan (brother of Stevie Ray) on guitar, Kim Wilson on vocals and harmonica, Keith Ferguson on bass and Mike Buck on drums. Leslie-driven guitars, swamp grooves, snarling harmonicas and bawdy (check "Scratch My Back") blues covers as well as originals, are all in here. Good stuff.
I bought this album back in 1996 for 2 quid from a small record shop at the ground floor of the Corn Exchange building in Leeds. I had bought some 90 lps from there before the shop finally closed down. Shame.
Note: this is a vinyl rip at 320 kbps
