Keith Ferguson's bass was extremely loud and boomy so I used an EQ to reduce it somewhat. It's still too loud but although it's not technically correct it's how it actually sounded and I kind of liked that it that way.
This is one of my personal favorites which I have never seen surface from any other source. This is Texas blues, roadhouse style. Jimmie Vaughan and Kim Wilson are both killing.
I went to The Bayou many times, in the shadow of the Whitehurst Freeway, on K Street in Georgetown down by the Potomac River.
