Super Heavy Blues Express

Forty-two years ago today in downtown Atlanta, the Super Heavy Blues Express came to town.  And what a truly astonishing line-up -  Big Mama Thornton, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Big Joe Turner, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson and Al Hibbler, with Jelly Roll as an added attraction.
