Keef Hartley Band 'Leaving Trunk'

A belting slice or raw and powerful blues from 1968. Whereas often the Keef Hartley Band strayed into slightly dodgy free-jazz territories, this cover of the Sleepy John Estes classic stays lean and mean. Vocals, guitar, organ and seismic drums battle to out-blues each other and the only real winner is your ears. Recently the Black Keys did a good version of this song too.
