A few of favorite EC tunes that I loved since H.S. and was unaware of the Tulsa connection until I moved down here, which includes contributions by Duane Allman as well.And Tulsa's own's JJ Cale's ... JJ Cale also wrote Cocaine. Cocaine & After Midnight were two of EC's biggest hits after LaylaCheers !
Enjoyed those immensely. JJ also wrote this one that was made popular by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Here is JJ and EC performing it.
One of my favorite JJ tunesI have a friend here that is a local musician, Johnny Johnson, who covers this tune incredibly. Next time I see Johnny, I'll ask him permission to post some of his stuff on YouTube.

Whatever you're doing for the next 1:16:50, it would be worth stopping to listen to something great. With plastic strings to boot. Not much of him recorded, a treasure to say the least!!!!
geez, I hate that when I do that.....here's the link http
Geesh!...no wonder nobody buys music anymore...the whole boxed-set on Youtube!? I remember well when this box was released (1990). Prior to this release, RJ's recordings were a mess and difficult to come by. At least if you buy it, you get the booklet that comes with it that has a lot of interesting info about the history of the recordings photos which are fairly rare for RJ.There may not have been a Muddy Waters or Howlin' Wolf if it weren't for Robert Johnson. Most of these recording were recorded within a few months of RJ's life and yet they influenced so many other artists for decades.
