Furry Lewis


I ain't good lookin but I take my time


Furry Lewis was amazing. Beyond being hands down my favorite slide player, there's something powerfully human about him that, for me, nobody else's got. Not to overstate the dude's talent -- there've been loads of better players, but I haven't heard any who touch his style. All his songs are appropriate for me at one time or another, & here's one of the more polished versions of a favorite.
