Giant Stepreleased concurrently with a raw collection of solo recordings called De Ole Folks At Home inwould be his third, and personal favorite to Give Your Woman What She Wants - Taj Mahal - Giant Step / De Ole Folks At Home. Taj transforms the Monkees hit, composed by Carole King and Gerry Goffin, into a relaxed and gorgeous rural roamer — his muddy vox rolls all over the changes, miles beyond blues.
The final track, Bacon Fat, is a pretty standard blues originally penned by The Band, and Billy Joel - An Innocent Man mostly a drawn out jam affording everbody last licks.
The album is actually 2 in 1, accompanied with De Ole Folks At Give Your Woman What She Wants - Taj Mahal - Giant Step / De Ole Folks At Home an acoustic solo set with Taj providing old-time steel-body slide picking, clawhammer banjo, harp, and hambone on traditional and classic numbers like Cluck Old Hen and Fishing Blues, as well as several originals.
Downhome grooves, raw authentic performances, a plain fun record that got me rethinking the blues. Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player version 9 or above is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here.
