Otis Taylor – Blues God

I watched Shooter last night. Besides a few badly done slow-motion-macho-manly-walking scenes, it’s a pretty good flick. The titles at the end had this awesome blues song that I had to Google. It’s called ‘Nasty Letter’ by Otis Taylor. The man has an interesting history. He left music in the 70’s to become an antique dealer and then picked it up again in the 90’s. I bought his album ‘Truth is not Fiction’ on iTunes and it’s full of incredible gritty meaty blues.

If you’re looking for music to sip a peat and seaweed 10 year old Laphroaig single malt whisky to, then this is it.
