Soul Long -- The Fabulous Wailers

It is alleged that the Jimi Hendrix song "Spanish Castle Magic" is an homage to seeing performances by The Fabulous Wailers at The Castle in Seattle, Washington.  Not sure if I buy it, but it makes for interesting reading, doesn't it?

Personally I am amazed that this group of dorky looking white guys from the early 60's play the Blues so convincingly.


The Wailers studio recordings are a bit tame.  Not like the song you just heard.  The album below recorded live at The Castle is way better.  There are several good songs.  Trust me, just buy it.
