With all due respect to Mike, I would have to argue that, with
notable exceptions such as "Evan's Shuffle," Muddy's voice was the
"central instrument in that [ Muddy's] band" and that "the other
instruments played around 'it.'"
Unless of course Michael or someone else wants to argue that the
human voice is not an "instrumen"' but rather a "toy," in which case
I give up!
BTW, want to publically thank the few people who responded to my
"Frankie and Johnny/Albert" post. Private thank yous to follow.
