Good job Terry Mullins there. Phil is truly, to use an overused superlative, but in this case it's fitting, amazing.

On my last trip to Port Townsend a few of us were sitting outside number 15 one early evening, and I idly started playing a blues in E, I think it was loosely based on Son House's Depot Blues but at a bit of a faster clip, more like Sam McGee's Railroad Blues, the two songs are closely related IMO and so I like to combine them.

Phil quietly appeared behind my left shoulder and started playing and it was like being scooped-up on the cow catcher of one of those old locomotives. After the initial surprise had worn off I just kept on playing and he literally pushed us both down the tracks. I don't think I've never played better or enjoyed myself so much, and I certainly never will forget the rush, it felt like accelerating down the runway on a jet. Whew!
