Otis Rush!

  1. Hi Sam- Thanks for reading and commenting. It's 1966. Good year for American automobiles.

    Hi Dr. Bob- I get on these little jags and can't help myself.

  2. Jeez. At first I thought it was shot in Europe. I figured only only mid-60's Europeans would be hip enough to book Rush and square enough to sit all proper and polite like that.

    Meanwhile, Otis was sweating!!

    Wonder what model his piggyback Fender rig was. . . .

  3. I failed to take the precautions you recommended. I secured the earbuds well into my ears an selected a rather low volume. At 0:21, the dog at my feet started pawing the air in his sleep, woke up and looked at me with deep watery eyes. At 0:48, the wife came out of the bedroom and asked me if everything was OK and looked at me with deep watery eyes. That's power. Powerful stuff that music….


  4. Sipp, could be a Bassman rig; couldn't make out the name on the faceplate. By the mid-60's Fender made several amp models in piggyback configuration, so could be a "Showman" or "Concert" or another model amp rig as well.
