"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, tourists and prostitutes – it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

  1. Michel...thank you for updating the link. Your the best...keep the Groove On.

  2. This is my favorite Albert King album..Perhaps not the ideal starter.. I'd recommend the Atlantic "King of the Blues Guitar", or the Stax "Born under a Bad Sign -bonus tracks version" both of which are pretty much the same album..
    But after having heard that, one would be ready to hear exactly why Albert was considered the finest at the electric blues guitar. BB 'sings" on his guitar, , but Albert 'wails" like an air raid siren.. and no better album to demonstrate this than "Years Gone By".
    In particular, SRV's favorite track.. "Drowning on Dry Land Part 2"
