Have Bird, Will Sing

From 2017, please enjoy the great Taj Mahal and Keb Mo' and an achingly beautiful live acoustic version of Taj's "Corrina."

I should add that the original of that appears on Taj's debut album The Natch'l Blues, from 1968, which is one of the absolute greatest albums of its era.

And which can (and should) be acquired over at Amazon here.

The Rising Sons version is pretty gorgeous, too.

Two things. All of my then teenage friends were taken by Taj's first album, TAJ MAJAL, and his second album, THE NATCH'L BLUES, even more so. We'd walk around describing things as "natch'l." Second, I always enjoyed Keb Mo's (Kevin Moore's) earlier work with The Three Stooges, alongside Keb Larry and Keb Curly.

I'd forgotten about the Rising Sons version.
