Default Taj Mahal

anybody else like this guy?

i picked about five taj records the other day and have been listening to them nonstop since

i love his music cause its so happy - all that stuff he did with tubas, like
"Cakewalk", is great

he of course did "She Caught the Katy" which became famous through the Blues Brothers movie

Man, you gotta love Taj Mahal. Anyone seen his performance at the Rolling Stones' Rock and Roll circus? I think he goes on after Dirty Mac do "Yer Blues".
