Sorry for not being on time with the BLUES ON THURSDAY post — but I had a bad case of the blues myself caused by a splitting headache. Being the indestructible ol’ Raggedy, I got back to work the minute I felt better. What I dug out during the post headache phase was a true treasure, in my opinion.
The Colwell-Winfield Blues Band released only two albums. Cold Wind Blues (1968) and Live Bust (1971).
When I heard this track the first time, I said “Mmmmmm! This is some fine music.” The guitar sounds a bit like Albert Collins’, but what got me hooked was the horn section — and the playful flute. I never thought that flute and Blues would make a good combination. The track is from Cold Wind Blues (Original release 1968 ) GET THIS BABY!
