John Collins: Live at the Fargo Town House (Digital Download)


Remember going to the hotel bar to hear live music? If you ever saw John perform in such a setting, this album will immediately take you back. This live set was recorded straight from John's PA system in 1988 or 1989 by a bartender who wanted a recording of some classic blues covers. This incredible performance shows John playing what he loved most: gritty and playful blues songs, accompanied by his soulful voice, skillful guitar playing and honking harmonica work.

This recording was given to me by the bartender, and I am thrilled to finally make it available for you to listen to and enjoy!

File format: MP3, 192 kbps VBR, 44.1 kHz. (If you prefer 320 kbps send me a note through Contact.)
