Musik Korner

Greetings, heads. Today we bring you another treasure from the archival project of Gabe Gabriel, a rare recording by white-boy blues weirdo, Old Man Baby. Old Man Baby, alias Jimmy, was a fixture in the counter-cultural happenings of mid-to-late 1960s Boise, ID, and would go on to form and dismantle numerous psychedelic rock bands. He signed to Kreativity Records in June 1964 and recorded prolifically while on their roster. This track, "Burnin-Mattress Blues," was featured on his 1965 album, Coffee Hands, and was a hit among local beats and train-hoppers.
