Satan and Adam – Philadelphia Folk Festival 1993 (#3)

Satan and Adam (Sterling Magee and Adam Gussow) play “Ode to Billy Joe” at the 1993 Philadelphia Folk Festival. Gussow is playing a D harp in the key of E (third position). Guitarist Magee deploys what he calls his “three-octave sound” in concert with his homemade trapset. This video makes clear why one reviewer of the duo’s first release, HARLEM BLUES, described Magee as sounding “like the heaviest and scariest parts of Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters reincarnated as a whole band and then somehow crammed back into the body of one man.”
