Muck that's just great playing my man. Quirky, soulful, loose. And WHAT are you playing? (Guitar, not song). The bass really jumps out.

Mr. O'Muck, both this and the Broonzy from the same performance sound terrific, such strong time, and really relaxed sounding singing.  I look forward to hearing that you're playing at one of those Jalopy shows in the near future.
All best,
Johnm

Thanks for the good words Mike. That guitar is a 1970s Japanese D-41 or 45 clone done in rich Corinthian Maple. It is called a "Cortez" (imagine Ricardo Montelbans voice) It was found for me by a friend of mine in Maine who is a junk/antiques dealer. It came in at a big $35.00. Other than a little bit o' high action it is just phucking awesomely good. Sometimes I think its the best of all my guitars Martins & Gibsons included! I think its the Maple, the most underestimated of all tonewoods, except of course by folks like Strativari, Guarnari, D'Angelico and the like. It sounds particularly good in these videos I think, with a crystalline bell like quality in the treble and a distinct, well defined
sound in the bass. It lives in an unheated storage unit on an island off the Maine coast for ten months a year and I can't help but think that the cold does something to improve the sound. I was sorely tempted to bring it back to NYC with me this year but didn't have room in the car. The sound system was one of those portable JVC or Fender jobbies belonging to the next act.

Great job with one of my favourite songs! Hopefully we'll have many documents of your live playing to enjoy in the future as well.

Cheers

Finally got a moment to watch. Was curious how Mr O would deal with this old chestnut and not surprisingly am greeted with a super-superior version. Another song to cross off my list.  :P  Sounds like it was an appreciative audience too.

Muck is the complete package and I will fight you with my knees if you disagree.
