Last night I finally got around to listening to Gary Clark Jr’s new album, The Story of Sonny Boy Slim. At first listen I like it better than his debut, Blak & Blu, but still not nearly as much as I have enjoyed Gary Clark Jr. Live. There’s just something about listening to his raw blues played as it should be – in front of a live audience. I happened to be at the gym while listening to the new record, and it provided a fantastic soundtrack to my workout. I recommend giving it a listen.
