EVERETT BARKSDALE, One Arm Bandit/Firewater, 1962Posted: August 9, 2013
Everett Barksdale (1910-1986) was an American jazz guitarist and session musician who worked with anyone who had a name in the jazz field from the 30s to the late 60s.
As far as I could find out, Everett Barksdale only recorded two 45s of his own material, this one and another one (See You Friday/ First Flag On The Moon) in 1968 for the Murbo label. Both of them have never been reissued in any format.
Think about it and do the math…
That´s a pretty fresh guitar sound for a 52 year old man in 1962!
