On this new CD that's out called West Coast Guitar Killers
(or is it Killer Guitars) there are several tracks by Guitar Shorty that
were orig. on the PULL label (with a wonderful big band). The vocals on
these tunes were INCREDIBLE!! (so was the guitar work!)

My question is "what happenened" to his voice since those days? I guess
wear-and-tear may account for some of it.... but I have heard many
performers that sound just as good 35 years later as they did in their
prime (ZuZu, Sam Myers, Percy Mayfield, Long John, are but a few), but
Shorty's vocals these days AIN'T even close.
