Synopsis

Album Description
When Adam first began playing with Mister Satan on the streets of Harlem, people told him stories: Satan -- under his earlier name -- playing with the Coasters on 'Yakety Yak'; causing George Benson's jaw to drop in amazement at a recording session; wearing white gloves on both spotlit hands as he tore up the stages of St. Petersburg, Florida 25 years earlier. Some of these stories turned out to be true. As did one 'bout him replacing a young guitarist named Jimmy James in Bo Diddley Jr.'s mid-'60s band. Jimmy later changed his name to Jimi and moved to England. King Curtis used to play with Mister Satan; so did Marvin Gaye. According to Mr. Satan, a mojo is a jomo spelled backwards. . . . Adam honestly wouldn't know. --From the liner notes

CD Reviews

Two man wrecking crew of street blues!
Barry Gross | 06/17/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Satan and Adam produce more incredible blues from two people then the average ten piece band! Satan on vocals, guitar and percussion and his sidekick Adam on harmonica, weave a sophisticated web of raw blues that at times puts the hair on the back of your neck on end. They met and began playing together on the streets of Harlem, and the soul of their music continues to find itself somewhere east of 125th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. This band captured the attention of U2, who included them on their Rattle & Hum Live CD."
Great stuff!

"I am a lifelong blues fan, dating back to listening to WNJR out of Newark under the covers at night as a little kid on a farm in North Jersey in the '50s. These guys are great, and play off each other perfectly. Five stars!"
