Jim Kweskin's Jug Band Music

In the late 60s, Jim Kweskin & His Jug Band were a group of talented folkies who resurrected some old timey blues numbers and Tin Pan Alley novelties, and had a hell of a great time playing them. I'm going to refer you to Wrath of Grapevine for an eloquent description of their music, a couple of their best albums (including their Greatest Hits), and a link to a third on Broke Down Engine.
Sometimes when you rediscover music you enjoyed back in the day, it doesn't sound quite the same. But this one seems to have held up pretty well over the years. Hope you enjoy.
