Current Distraction Part Two: Strange Collaborations
I had planned on making this today's Song Of The Day, but it's just too damn good.
I don't believe there has ever been a more unusual fusion than the pairing of blues and soul belters Larry Williams and Johnny "Guitar" Watson with David Lindley's oddball psych-country band Kaleidoscope. The result was one single, "Nobody" from 1967.
As records go, this is one of the more brilliant. Produced by Williams and Watson themselves. What a sound!
Any other strange collaborations that work on such an accessible level?
