I'm playing out next month, for a mate, who is a slide guitar player/ragtime-folk-acoustic-blues player. Hes asked me to spin a few records (at his warm up gig for a gig he's got in north london) that are sympathetic to what he's doing but kinda funky (but in his words "not in a meters" way). This isn't normally the sort of stuff I'd play out..
So far I've dug out:-
Milt Matthews- It Ain't Your Fault
Donovan- Get Thy Bearings
Labi Siffre- Rocking Chair
Ted Hawkins- I Got What I Wanted
Richie Havens- Handsome Johnny
I know the folk/funk thing has been much discussed but I'm just thinking what else I can pull outta the bag without breaking the bank....

Any thoughts on what I can play would be much appreciated...
