Ton-Ton Macoute! by Johnny Jenkins
Released: Jan 1970
Label: PCLC
A certified lost classic, Ton Ton Macoute! is Johnny Jenkins' finest hour and features Duane Allman on a few key tracks. Jenkins, a flamboyant, Georgia-born R&B innovator, helped launch the career of his cheuffer -- a young kid named Otis Redding -- and influenced Jimi Hendrix and Taj Mahal with his unorthodox approach to the blues. This 1970 album is a collector's item thanks to Allman's swamp-funk slide opening on Jenkins' scorching cover of Dr. John's "Gilded Splinters," famously sampled by another young unknown named Beck Hanson in 1992.
