Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has any info on any recordings Jack may have done before 'Step Out'? I've poked around a bit, but can't find any references to any. Perhaps there were none?

Mekonsfreak, Jack's first record of his own stuff was Step Out and he has a total of four discs available. Before Step Out, he recorded a cassette with the band The Nationals, but there were no more than a 1000 copies total. Bad recording quality, but some of the best power blues ever laid down. Don't know if there are any copies of this record for trade. I wore my copy out and wasn't bright enough to make a backup. He also recorded with several other artists before Step Out, such as Bobby "Blue" Bland and Donnie Fritts. Don't know when it will be released, but he recently laid down some samples for an upcoming "Band In A Box" computer program. When it is released, even I will be able to sound like Jack. Hope this helps.

Oh yes sir! That demo is great. 1990 - Jack's playing was quite different back then, it's really very aggressive in places. I used to have it on CDR many moons ago, I have no idea where that disc is now. However I do have it on my itunes... if anyone wants to hear it, drop me a PM and I'll burn a copy for you.

It's worth it just for Jack's slide solo on Dust My Broom. Killer!!!!

Jules! So good to hear from you again! It isn't just Jack's playing, but William Howse on the harp as well. William blows the reeds out of the harp on a few tunes. Weep and Moan still send shivers up and down my spine. A blues standard if I ever heard one:
Like a black widow spider,
or a copper headed snake.
She shot me full of poison,
and took all that she could take
Oooooooooooo, (you'd have to hear william do it)
Can't you hear me weep and moan
Like a long lost wolf
Howlin' to the break of dawn.
Jimmy Hall recorded it and did a great version, but William's take is as raw as any blues you ever heard.
Okay, I'm PMing you.
