Deacon John's Jump Blues on ABC

Haven't seen the DVD, but folks the CD is just wonderful. Highly recommended!  As
good as you're going get in the genre of contemporary (but vintage sounding) jump
blues and New Orleans R&B albums -- and recorded so vividly, it just jumps out of
your speakers.   And Deacon's vocals, man that cat can sing.  This is high energy,
high quality, well worth getting!!
