Dorris Henderson arrived in London in 1964. She came from Watts in Los Angeles where her daddy was a well established preacher with a big congregation. So Dorris could really sing gospel, but she knew the blues too. Her uncle was the legendary Guitar Nubbit and she listed T-Bone Walker and John Lee Hooker among her friends. We met at the Roundhouse in Soho. I think Champion Jack Dupree was working that night. It was a big thrill for me to play for her. We did gigs around the London clubs and toured a bit. Dorris also landed a spot on a weekly television show on which Alexis Korner headed the house band. The tunes here are pretty representative, simply vocal and guitar, all done live in an afternoon. A bit of church, a bit of blues, and what are probably among the first ‘cover versions’ of songs by young up and coming songwriters Paul Simon and Bob Dylan.
