Strong Persuader

Robert Cray: Strong Persuader - released, unbelievably, thirty years ago this week.  

It's Because Of Me 


  1. Saw him at Dingwalls on the 'Bad Influence' tour (gulp) 33 years ago.

  2. I hear him when I listen to Gregory Porter - their voices are very similar.

    My one and only visit to Dingwalls would have been around that time; I was very, very drunk. So too, apparently, was Brian Connolly - which was why he was a no show that night.

  3. I've seen him play twice in recent years at Harrogate. He is quite simply awesome and what a lovely guy too. He puts on a fantastic show, he's relaxed, warm and witty and appears not to have aged at all in the past 30 years. Must be that rock and roll lifestyle.
