Bukka White and Furry Lewis - Party At Home - 1968.
there are few records of any vintage, that better demonstrate the sheer joy that blues music can evoke. Here we have two old friends - celebrated elder statesmen of the blues - playing, laughing and drinking in the relaxed company of friends while a tape player rolls. They make off-color jokes, swap guitars, remark on their favorite attributes of beer (Bukka is a suds fan) and try vigorously to wake a drunk neighbor woman who has fallen asleep on Furry's bed. And in between all of this, they play some absolutely wonderful blues. There are missed notes and flubbed lyrics, but it hardly matters. This is what blues music is all about. Very highly recommended.
