Larry Jon Wilson - Ohoopee River Bottomland


video
Alright, now sit back and enjoy this excerpt of the wonderful Heartworn Highways documentary. This is Larry Jon Wilson recording Ohoopee River Bottomland in the studio. Larry Jon knows what he wants and he's quite the presence.On top of that, it's a really great song. Some funky country.
Heartworn Highways is a great documentary about some Southern singer-songwriters, like Townes and Guy, but also features The Charlie Daniels Band. I posted another video of this DVD earlier by Barefoot Jerry. So, if you liked that and you love this, then go out and buy it. It's still available and worth every penny.
Now, watching this got me wanting those old Larry Jon Wilson records. Anybody got a good rip of those?
