Default Snooks eaglin

Anyone else into this amazing artist, who taught himself to play the guitar from listening to records and replicating the sound after becoming blind at the age of 19 months. I have a few tracks by him, and they really are great traditional blues tunes. You could easily picture him sitting on his porch strumming away to himself.

Anyone got any of his full albums and what is his later stuff like-I think my tracks are from his earlier days.

Just listened to Out of Nowhere. Pretty awesome stuff. I didn't realize he was blind though, he just got even more respect from my end.

Man was I depressed today. This song YouTube - Snooks Eaglin with George Porter Jr. - Red Beans [6/6] instantly made me feel better. It's hard to feel bad listening to that.
