Lee McBee- Swear To Tell the Truth
Ron Rooks, owner of the Music Exchange record store in Kansas City, died earlier this week. He probably would have wanted me to post a profane song by Frank Zappa or a crazy guitar summit in his memory. But Ron and I never agreed on anything. I think Ron would still be pleased with something from Lee McBee, a man he no doubt knew very well. The bluesman made a name for himself internationally, and he plays here every Sunday night. "Swear To Tell the Truth" is taken from a seemingly out-of-print compilation that's probably available at the Exchange. Alas, it'd be easier to buy it at Amazon. I remember Ron here.
