    Found this in a CD bargain bin. Released in the early 80s. Great old school sounding record. The first track has a solo by SRV, but the unsung guitarist is Kenny Ray. Amazing phrasing & tone.

    Very nice, indeed... :cool:

    Yeah, that's an interesting circle of really talented individuals, Strehli, Ball, SRV and others around them.

    Marcia’s brilliant, and charming!
    She’s great solo or with a full band.
    She always has great players.
    She’s a Texas treasure!

    She was on a Blues Cruise in the late '80s with other artists and really great. Her band was top notch.
    I think she still does the Sandy Beach blues cruises with Delbert McClinton and friends.
