Larry McCray: “Smooth Sailing”

Here is a intense version of Soulshine, though their was a bit too much singing and too little guitar playing. McCray is great on the old standard The Blues is My Business.

The tag line of McCray’s site is “Peace, Love & Blues,” which seems like three good suggestions. This is from his allmusic bio:

Working on General Motors’ assembly line occupied a great deal of Larry McCray‘s time after he finished high school. But he eventually found enough free hours to put together Ambition for Point Blank in a Detroit friend’s basement studio. The stunning debut set was a convincing hybrid of blues, rock, and soul, McCray combining the interrelated idioms in sizzling fashion.
