Thirty Two By The Back Door - #ALifeInNumbers #32



Colin Hodgkinson has always been one of my favourite bass players, and I first heard his cover of Robert Johnson's "32-20 Blues" when I discovered Back Door in the seventies . They didn't have a guitarist but Hodgkinson's bass playing mad up for that. This is a live performance and he still has it, probably the first time I have seen a solo blues piece played on the bass. Most of  Back Door's music was saxophone led underpinned by Hodgkinson's bass and are well worth checking out , they even covered "Dashing White Sergeant".

Anyway the weather outside looks grey and I have groceries to buy and friends to meet, so enjoy the rest of your Saturday my friends.
