Duster Bennett: Smiling Like I'm Happy

Duster Bennett: Smiling Like I'm Happy

One of the unsung heroes of British blues, this one-man band was a fine harmonica player and singer, a decent guitarist, and a soulful enough singer to make one overlook his distinctly unbluesy high voice. The opening "Worried Mind" - just Duster on harp, guitar, voice, high-hat and kick drum - is a marvelously sloppy shuffle romp that holds its own with the Fabulous Thunderbirds' work ten years hence. On other tracks Bennett is backed by three-fourths of the original Fleetwood Mac, who provide simple, effective support without stealing any limelight; solos are kept to a minimum. Originals "My Lucky Day" (with chromatic harmonica) and "Jumping at Shadows" (which Mac would later cover) are absolutely outstanding, and Duster does justice to Magic Sam's "My Love Is Your Love."
