These are my records: San Francisco Bay Blues

Jesse Fuller: “San Francisco Bay Blues”

If you can look past the gimmicks (one-man-bands are always gimmicky), there are some good tunes to be found here. I wouldn’t call it blues, exactly – it’s hard to put a guy who plays the kazoo in the same category as Little Walter or Leadbelly – but I suppose it’s a flexible enough genre to accommodate Mr. Fuller. It’s a pretty upbeat record, so if you prefer your blues with generous dollops of pathos and tragedy, it’s probably not for you.
