Sleepy LaBeef in Spain


Sleepy LaBeef in 1992 in Spain. It's amazing for me how a singer could create such a vital und full sound with only a bass player and a drummer as backup musicians. LaBeef on lead guitar and vocals is the real deal. He does a good version of "Walkin' Slowly", which he recorded in the early 1960s, and a version of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love", which is the better song for me here. Nice driving beat and great guitar work by the Human Jukebox!

Hi Mellow!

"Who Do You Love" is actually a Bo Diddley original from 1956. I saw Sleepy last October here in Finland and he was still going strong:

Yes he is amazing. I'm a huge fan of him. Thanks for the correction - guess I was confused!
