Taj Mahal - Recycling the Blues, Double 45rpm 180g Vinyl LP

American blues musician Taj Mahal, was born Henry Fredericks in New York in 1942. His music is a mix of blues, Caribbean styles, bluegrass and the music of Hawaii, where he lived for a number of years. Originally released in 1972, Recycling The Blues & Other Related Stuff contains seven live tracks and four studio recordings.

Guitar/piano playing rural blues revivalist Taj Mahal was quite a rarity in the late 1960s - a young black man who accurately revived classic country blues for a new generation of listeners. Mahal took an archival interest in folk blues while joining in during the early '60s. On this album, the first seven tracks were recorded live at the Fillmore West and the rest at Columbia's San Francisco studios with backup from the Pointer Sisters. The title Recycling the Blues & Other Related Stuff certainly sums up the album quite well - that's exactly what Taj Mahal has been doing for several years by this point!
