    Yeah. I guess it's more rockabilly. But Nick drops some jump blues lines in his solos. My bad.

    Actually, I'm not sure now. That might be a miked Princeton or a Blues Jr....I think it's too small to be a Deluxe though. Anyone else have a guess?

    I love this song. And Nick's playing with such great feel.

    Good choice!

    Does this qualify as a jump blues? I've never been sure. But it's always been one my favorites. Feel free to chime in.

    If you run out of patience with the spoken introduction the music starts around 2:35.

    What it sounds like is a screwup. In fact , several times in that solo. Not the best I’ve heard from him.

    I don't think it was a screwup. It sounds like an attention-getting lick inserted in between accents from the band....deliberate.
