As a fan of clean tone I'll agree 100% that is a great clean tone. :clap:

There's a beautiful version of his of Stormy Monday on youTube I noticed. Must listen / watch more later.

One of the reasons I like this forum - people keep posting about guitarists I don't know about. :D
An improv a day keeps the demons at bay!

You MUST obtain a copy of "I hear Some Blues Downstairs" on the Alligator label. I had that record on vinyl as a teeanger in the 1970's. I first heard about about Fenton Robinson in the mid 70's on a local blues radio show that was (and is still) on every Sunday night on one of our non-commercial volunteer run University FM radio stations.

I too have a worn out vinyl copy of "I Hear Some Blues Downstairs". Still listen to it today...scratches and all! The album art is very cool as well... :cool:
