Thanks, Strange~ wasn’t he something. YouTube has “Slow Blues Jam” from 1977, with him, Muddy, Johnny Winter and John Cotton, here.

I haven’t listened through to the end (it’s a good almost 10 minutes of wailing great blues) yet, so if it cuts off, I apologize. Such is YouTube.

Saw him perform just a couple years ago at Antone’s in Austin, Texas.  He definitely still had his mojo.

Farewell, Pinetop.  Godspeed.

Sadness.
