KOERNERCAST: 1963 – 1972: Spider John’s First Decade

This year, 2020, Spider John Koerner hits 82. For nearly 50 years he’s been doing his funky bar-room thing to classic American folk songs, but in the previous decade to that, he evolved his approach to music on mostly original songs inspired by the old blues players, with one of the funkiest guitar styles you could want to hear.

Here, revisiting a tribute podcast that I made back in 2013, are 26 tracks from Spider John’s first decade which are sure to surprise you – from his original trio with Dave Ray & Tony Glover, through his first solo album, live recordings that never saw the light of day, a folk rock single that’s as rare as hen’s teeth, his duo LP with pianist Willie Murphy and more.
