    I like simple guitar music, Garrett. Just picking and strumming, you know? Sitting around the fire while camping and a friend or two picking up the guitar(s). So the first selection was my fav!

    I think Otis creates some great imagery with the way he sings on '3 Strikes On A Cadillac'. Nice picking and strumming! :grinthumb

    I agree dude! That song was my personal favorite but I liked this guys vibe! To be fair that was a more developed version of his work and the others were stripped down and live! He's got the sort of presence I like in Blues artist though! :cheers2

    I`m not sure why it is titled Vol. 3, there is no 1 and 2. Artistic license I rekon! But I do love this man`s style and I can recommend either one of these for your collection!

    If you get a minute or two...ya ought to read his bio, it`s interesting!
