'62 Blues ( Gary Carciello backing trk - FJ vocal and Harmonica)
About the lyric: I was reminiscing how much the blues influenced my early years as a musician and they still do. One of my favorite listens was an album conceived by Al Kooper and featuring the work of guitarists Mike Bloomfield and Stephen Stills.
They were an unlikely crew to do a blues album together( in 1968) but their bluesy rendition of Donovan's Season of the Witch pulled me right in. Around that time I also acquired an early 60's live album, featuring Sonny Boy Williamson on blues harp. He was backed by the Yardbirds, with a young blues guitarist named Eric Clapton. As I was thinking about the many hours I spent listening and learning from these two albums, the thought to do a blues lyric/song paying homage to some of the greats that had an impact on me, seemed right to do. Anyway I'm rambling on but that's how the lyric and song came about.
Gary Carciello sent over this bluesy backing track to see if I wanted to do anything with it. This is what I did with it: I decided to tip my hat to the late, great Sonny Boy Williamson and let my Sonny Boy Jackson out to play. So '62 Blues was created.
