Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut.
Blues music has been something Soul Strutters dabble in, but have yet to master. Most of it is guitar lead heavy and sounds the same. Am I right? The blues that tends to get the shine on here are of the funkier variety. If I had to choose one Albert Collins album relevant to this site, this would be it (with his Trash Talkin' LP getting an honorable mention). Collins definitely adopts the funky R&B Hammond vibe (while peppering his Texas Twang over top). He even goes far as emulating The Meters on the lead off track "Do the Sissy" and Booker T on other cuts. It's an album that is interesting enough to keep the interest of the R&B / soul fan while holding to true blues roots.
