Taj Mahal: Blue Light Boogie Blue Light Boogie combines songs Taj Mahal recorded for various multi-artist tribute albums along with some cuts lifted from the bluesman’s ‘90s releases on Private Music. The latter are hardly the best selections Taj recorded for his label, they do demonstrate the eclectic talents and considerable soul of one of America’s best blues talents. Blue Light leans a little too heavily on pop-oriented tracks from Mahal’s 1991 CD "Like Never Before." Fortunately, a great country-blues version of the Stones’ "Honky Tonk Women" (with James Cotton), an inspired live interpretation of "She Caught The Katy" (with John Popper and a tight horn section), and a funky take on Little Feat’s "Feets Don’t Fail Me Now" more than compensate.

Title: Blue Light Boogie | Year Released: 1999 | Record Label: Private Music
