I used to see Robert with Curtis Salgado @ a place called 'Taylors' it was on 13th/next to the U - back when I was a Fighting Duck @ UO. Back in the day - John & Dan got the idea for the Blues Brothers from Curtis & Robert. Then Robert made a break for it & eventually had this fantastic break out album. Oh It's a CLASSIC Alright. Many years later we saw Curtis open for Robert @ the Paramount Theatre in Seattle. That was a show to remember. Only regret was I don't recall them playing together... But I must admit, I was a bit distracted... but that's another story. I've seen Robert play around the PNW several times. & truly Loved every show. He never disappoints. Smokin' Gun is truly a classic of classics & back in the day it revived the BLUES springing it into the mainstream of pop top 40... What-a-Go Robert. Love Ya.
Blew Me Away!
This was the first Blues video that I ever saw. After that first time I was sold on Robert Cray and the Blues. Been a fan ever since.Buy this one. You will not be sorry. R.
