The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – Unknown Venue, US (1 February 1996)

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Unknown Venue (1 February 1996)Advert for a show by The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion with R.L. Burnside and The Demolition Doll Rods on 1 February 1996.

This show was a few days before The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion recorded with R.L. Burnside on A Ass Pocket of Whiskey and Mr Wizard albums.

Footage of them performing Boogie Chillun together appeared on the Live Promo Video and they appear on stage together in the Fat Possum documentary You See Me Laughin’: The Last of The Hill County Bluesmen.

The track R.L. Got Soul from Now I Got Worry is a reference to R.L. Burnside and after his death on 1 September 2005 the Judah Bauer website featured a free downloadable mp3 of Goin’ Down South as a tribute to him.

Jon Spencer produced half of the Demolition Doll Rods album Tasty and Boss Hog have covered the song I Wanna O.D. live.
