magic sam - love me with a feeling

This guy is so good.  For some reason he gets overlooked when the subject of Chicago Blues comes up.  He always sounds great to me, what enthusiasm!  And he keeps it rockin', he never seems to come up for air.  Great tone too. 

And I love that he seems to be playing Earl Hooker's guitar in some of the footage accompanying the video!  I think that I did read somewhere that he often showed up for gigs and then had to scrounge up some equipment. 

Magic Sam, write it down.  The guy deserves a lot more play than he gets.
