Mike Cooper "Oh Really!?" 1969

Mike Cooper web site:
For the past thirty years Mike Cooper has performed and recorded, in a variety of genres, both solo and in a number of inspired groupings. Initially a blues guitarist and singer-songwriter, his work has diversified to include avant-garde, rock, improvised and electronic musics. He is also a music journalist, writing features for magazines such as fROOTS (formerly Folk Roots) on a variety of performers, in particular Pacific musicians.

Cooper stands out as the man who truly made something of his own out of the country-blues... (The Guardian)
Starting in the mid sixties, a solo country blues singer and slide guitar player, he was one of the handful of acoustic players who pioneered the British Blues Boom, playing with and alongside such blues legends as Son House, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Bukka White, Howlin Wolf, John Lee Hooker and Jimmy Reed. His 1969 l.p. Oh Really!? is widely acclaimed as one of the best acoustic blues albums of the period.

Thanks for Oh Really! I saw him in Huddersfield in the late 60s, and (Poor) Little Annie hit home. My vinyl copy is unplayable and I have been searching for a digital copy for a couple of years. Thanks again!!

Thanks for this. Do you by chance have any of his other early 70s recordings (besides Do I Know You?)? They sound pretty interesting.

Does anyone know where Mike is in Hawaii (I think he is in Hawaii)?

Oh Really? is available as a CD but is very very expensive, wish I still had the album. :-(
