    Wasn’t this the one with his big chart hit, “The Thrill is Gone”? Notice who the special guest was on that session, playing that electric piano. Not someone you’d guess.

    Actually, I’ve never heard the album, Stuart (but they are definitely great photos, Elizabeth!). Looking at the wikipedia entry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indianola_Mississippi_Seeds) I see that Carole King played electric piano! And Joe Walsh was on the album as well! I’m gonna have to hear this album I guess.

    I had that album once. Always liked the cover photos. Anyone seen a film called Oh Dem Watermelons?

  5. Rob says:

    No, what’s the film about?

  6. mark says:

    Well, find it at youtube and then you tell me!

  7. Rob says:

    Uh, it seems to be about watermelons. I think. Or maybe it’s a sociopolitical commentary on the arms race. Or about civil rights. Or fruit worship while under the influence of psychedelics. How on earth do you know about this film? (Oh, and thanks for expanding my horizons with it! Gonna grow some watermelons this Spring now!)

    Saw it in a film class in college. 1973-74? Certain “parts” are indelibly etched in my brain…
