Get it. If you are a fan of great blues-rock music, especially the Allman Brothers Band, this CD is a must have! Johnny Jenkins was a blues singer-guitarist who not only launched the career of Otis Redding, but his acrobatic guitar playing also influenced Jimi Hendrix both Jenkins and Hendrix were left-handed.
