New batch of 30 Thumbs' tunes recorded live, 1987

Live from The Point, Atlanta Georgia in 2 volumes, recorded by Matt Miller

The intro to "I've Love Paris in the Springtime" should be enough to get you going.

Thanks,
Terry

    thanks to Matt for recording these under very difficult circumstances...(recording wise)...still, he got good sound...and gave us a time to remember just how good Thumbie was.....and thanks to Terry and Sam...I'm forever grateful.....Virginia

  2. Long live Thumbs! I am working with David Corcoran right now who actually dedicated his Downforce Guitar Methods book to Thumbs! Everyone can learn to play in this method easier!

  3. I was lucky enough to play bass with Thumbs in Chattanooga for a few months in the mid eighties. I had trouble concentrating on my playing due to always watching him play. Truly amazing. A great experince in my life's musical journey.

  4. Shortly after he moved to Atlanta, I had the pleasure to play bass with Thumbs in Decatur at a club that had a name related to the railroad (Depot?).
    He was not only an outstanding player but a beautiful human being. His
    daughter Kathy was also a great blues singer if I remember correctly. I wonder if she is still singing! phil morrison
