S. E. Rogie: Go easy with me.

Combining Calypso (Nor weigh me lek dat ) with West African rhythms and West American pickin' (I Wish I Was a Cowboy) the King of Palm Wine Guitar Music played live at the 100 Club in London in 1994 right before the release of his final album, Dead Men Don't Smoke Marijuana.

Great stuff. I'm going to be listening to Rogie on my drive to work tomorrow - so at least I have something to look forward to Monday morning for. Thanks for the post.
