Rufus Thomas

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, January 1972

BRITAIN HAS always been a happy hunting ground for Rufus Thomas, right back to his first tour in 1967, not so long after notching up his initial Stax hits, such as 'Walking The Dog' and 'Jump Back'. His recent tour was no exception. The year included several high spots for amiable Rufus, including, of course, the two Evening of Soul concerts sponsored by Blues & Soul. Another was his guest appearance on Doris Troy's ambitious spectacular at London's Rainbow Theatre earlier this month.
