I discovered the genius of Shooby Taylor, thanks to legendary drummer & good friend, the late great Mike Smith. After enduring one too many of my experiments with some tunes for my hypothetical upcoming "Major Holley & Slam Stewart Sing the K-Tel Songbook" concept project (which was tol be released exclusively on 8 track), Mike presented me with a tape to check out. On this tape were four tracks of Shooby. Without thinking, I put the tape on while driving home from a late gig, and I was so overcome with emotion that I had to pull to the side of the road!
