New Orleans Street Singer




"… One can't help but listen and be captivated. Snooks Eaglin nas a remarkable command of the guitar which places him in a class outside that of most blues instrumentalists… And the voice, in its blurred, slightly broken accents is instantly recognisable as his alone. So we have the somewhat unique phenomenon of a blues artist who derives from others and from a multitude of different types and schools and who emerges from the process as a distinct artist in his own right…"
