I'm almost certain I'm quoting Charlie by saying of our various musical enthusiasms that when you first get hit is when you get hit hardest. Though I never for a minute put the words world and music together at the time, I first realised there was something other than the twelve bar blues going on way back in 69 or 70 when I first heard Ba' La Fouche by Champion Jack Dupree.
...A real curio this, a propulsive creole? chanting with Jack on vocals and percussion ,and an insistent Hawaiin guitar played by a man later destined for much greater fame (I'll leave it at that in case Charlie should get round to playing it and wish to use it for his quiz).
The point of this posting....This is when I got hit first and hardest 'cos it's stayed with me all these years. I've never ever heard it on the radio so I'm giving CG a nudge ... AND it's re released by Sony on Aug 8, the perfect excuse to play it........Champion Jack Dupree - The Blue Horizon years.. Will Vine
