Album Review

I Can Tell boasts an all-star backing band of rock & roll stars, featuring everyone from Bill Wyman to Robbie Robertson. John Hammond leads the band through a set of Chicago blues standards, reaching deep into the catalogs of Willie Dixon, Elmore James, Howlin' Wolf, and many others.

The CD reissue includes four cuts from his 1970 album, Southern Fried, which feature Duane Allman on slide guitar.

Great Chicago Blues

This is one a budding electric guitar player shouldn't miss. Great musicianship.
