Club 47, Cambridge, Mass., December 1963

At the Club 47, musicians often put together one-time combinations that were never recorded. We'd like to have a tape of this spontaneous group, in which Fritz Richmond (washtub) and Geoff Muldaur (washboard) of the Kweskin Jug Band accompany Al Wilson, later of Canned Heat, a young man who knew almost every blues ever recorded and could sing and play most of them on either the guitar or harmonica.
