Missed a couple of posts from Aquarium Drunkard and they are worth underling here . . . . . . 

We know the post about legendary New Orleans piano player James Booker and loved the Lost Paramount Tapes. Booker of whom Dr John once said "the best black, gay, one-eyed junkie piano genius New Orleans has ever produced" is an extraordinary figure in N'Awleans history. It was back on Oct 2005 when they posted a forgotten masterpiece of Booker's from 1978 and it blew me away! Here they revisit the live set from the Montreux Jazz Festival

They have revisited this here and if you didn't get it first time around you really should
