It was 40 years ago this year
Hmmm what is behind this allusion to Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. I do not have my copy of the first edition of Leadbitter & Slaven’s Blues Records 1943-1966 (hope I have the title including dates right), but I recall the last entry in the volume is a 45 single by Magic Slim & the Teardrops from 1966 I believe. Here we are and Magic Slim is still at it with his immediately recognizable sound and with numerous very entertaining and representative available recordings. May you keep going another 40 years Slim.
