Yeah yeah...but ask any of  these people if they actually own an autographed
Hubert Sumlin shoe and see  what they say. I've got two of them!  :)

Seriously, I'm really  happy to see this album is finally being released.
Hubert can use the  dough, and the recognition.


Man Jef that's cooler than the other side of the pillow.  How's the  album
from a musical standpoint?  And shouldn't it be live  on DVD?  The list of
contributors make me think that it'd be something  every music collector would want
to own.

  Someone call Scorsese.

 Isn't David Johansen the singer/actor guy that did the song Hot, Hot,  Hot
under the name Buster Poindexter?  And the same guy that played in one  of my
favorite horse betting movies, "Let it Ride"?  Maybe it was another  guy named
Johansen.  As i recall there was a horseracing blues song in the  flick.
