A snippet: "When I met Tampa, he was frail, frail, frail. His delicate fingernails were tinged yellow with nicotine. He spoke very quietly, and never seemed quite “all there.” When we would leave after a visit, we'd always ask, “Can we bring you something?” Tampa's request was always and only for some cigarettes and beer. We never brought him the beer."
Inspired by Jim's writing, I revisited Tampa's OBC recordings with fresh ears and a greater appreciation of where Tampa was at that stage of his life. Of all his works these are the recordings I play the least. This time I enjoyed these albums for what they were, not what they weren't.
For those who haven't read the RCA notes: if you're a Tampa Red fan in any way, shape or form...you need to reading this.
