Willie Tee - Teasin' you

Grande ascolto con Willie Tee, preso a naso da un folder di file sharing. La ricerca mi ha portato alla stazione WWOZ, che trasmette dal vivo e dove anni fà ho ascoltato lo zydeco piu' bastardo. Ora vorrei scaricare Wasted (The Gaturs Featuring Willie Tee), mentre stamattina ho sentito la sua roba vecchia nella compila Teasin' You - Tee's recordings with Nola Records (1965-1971, arranged by the legendary Wardell Quezerque) and the self-produced singles from Tee's own lable Gatur Records. While Tee went on to lead the funk band the Gaturs and was the force behind the Wild Magnolias, these recordings (anchored by his biggest hit "Teasin' You") serve as the richest bedrock to his electric career.
