    That definitely a great record. A must have for any Taj fan. Wally, I also have the 'Gilded Palace of Sin'. Another great record. I'll have to dig that Taj record out.

    I like Taj Mahal a lot. My wife and I saw him about 30 years ago at "The Barn" in Bandon, a tiny place with folding chairs. Back then I paid no attention to bands, so I wouldn't have noticed if there had been one, but I think there was no one accompanying him, just a big guy with a big voice on a piano. I don't even remember whether there were guitars involved. He put on a very good show.

    Great musician. Jesse Ed Davis is sooo sorely missed. R.I.P.

    Happened to spot this thread while listening to Giant Step for the first time in years. She Caught the Katy and Six Days on the Road are two of my favorite songs. When I had Sirius FM, I'd listen to the blues station, and they played phenomenal live versions of both songs, perhaps even better than the studio versions, but I've never been able to find them.
