THE SERIES CONTINUES! - He was one of the greatest Blues musicians, who died too early: JAMES BOOKER. This concert from 1976 shows Booker on one of his best performances ever. James C. Booker’s performance was exceptionally marvellous and just what blues should be all about. All the talk about his problems and the creation of legends which immediately started after his early death in 1983 (in the waiting room of a rehabilitation clinic!), seemed so unimportant and irrelevant that day, just as irrelevant as the timetable of the Hamburg metro; because it does not matter if the last train has already departed (as on that particular evening) with an artist performing many of his own creations but also several blues-classics with so much devotion while being deeply rooted in the spiritual soil of this special city located between Mississippi and Lake Pontchartrain.

Recorded October 27, 1976
at Onkel Pö’s Carnegie Hall, Hamburg, Germany
Recorded by NDR Hamburg
