Otis Rush - "I Can't Quit You Baby." - This is What It's All About!

I keep stumbling upon these incredible gems on Youtube. Check out this vintage clip of Otis Rush in fine form.  There are so many things to enjoy about this performance I don't know where to begin.

I was initially baffled as to what model guitar he was playing then I noticed the frequensator tailpiece and realized it is an Epiphone Riviera (w/ mini-humbuckers) that has had the headstock trimmed down a bit.

I am continually impressed by these early players who overcame the lack of left-handed guitar models by learning to play the instrument upside down!

  1. Thanks to share, amazing performance with strange harmony.


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
