KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are in the original Rudy Van Gelder studio in Hackensack, New Jersey. The year is 1957 and we are in the company of Mississippian Mose Allison for his first recording of "Young Man Blues" released on the Prestige label...
""Young Man Blues" is best known as a cover version on The Who's "Live At Leeds" LP - like myself and many mods, Pete Townshend is a huge Mose Allison fan. I first met Mose in London circa 1981, when I checked with him that he was getting royalty payments for The Clash's cover of his "Look Here". He was ! A gentleman, a wit and a true talent, I always went to see him play whenever I could. Mose quit living in 2016, four days after his 89th birthday. Got no Mose - start with "Mose Allison Sings." - KV
