Snooky Pryor "Do It If You Want To" 1973




I do not often post blues albums here, but I think this LP from 1973 with harmonica legend Snooky Pryor is a great and pretty groovy (and funky) LP in parts, but mostly straight blues. Bluesway Records had a really fresh sound in the early 70s, and did a modern take on the blues scene then - tryin to catch a new audience maybe. Pryor was born in Mississippi in 1921, and he is in my opinion a bit overlooked as a harmonica player, and, he had a real powerful and emotional voice as well. He started his career in the 50s and recorded some real great sides for JOB Records too. Groovy!

Enjoy!
