Taj Mahal – Live at Austin City Limits – Slave Driver & Life is Beautiful

DOG ASIDE:

Taj Mahal had one of the best “islands” musician….with a sound that just takes the listener to the islands every time his music is heard. This lil ole Chiweenie remembers Taj playing on a regular basis in Austin during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s….a time of gaiety like in an F. Scott Fitzgerald scene….only it was the Gay 80’s….so some of my favorite songs of Taj Mahal are “Goin Fishin” and “champagne don’t make me crazy, cocaine don’t make me lazy…..ain’t no body’s business but my own.” ¬†However, these two songs on this video are right up there with my all time favorite Taj songs…..especially “Life is Beautiful”….cuz it just makes me feel good.
