Happy 81st birthday to Henry Saint Clair Fredericks, Jr., better known as singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Taj Mahal. Taj specializes in blues and roots music but mixes in world music, reggae, and other forms. I saw him in concert close to 50 years ago, and he opened with today’s featured song, "Fishin’ Blues."

A big feeling of backwood in this one.
Right, a real country feel…
