Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Man, Booker

If you’re still, even after my lies and cajoling, on the fence about watching James Booker’s documentary Bayou Maharajah, then look at that bullshit right there. Look at it. Harder. Look at the bullshit.

And tell me honestly you’re not even slightly curious.

Fun fact: Booker stole that wig from Billy Preston.


  1. Booker and Preston both played on this album (along with members of The Band)

  2. Thanks for the recommendation, alas the booker flic ain’t yet on Canadian Netflix. However It recommended based on that the cool,doc now watchin
    “Dying to know: ram dass and Timothy Leary’. And don’t forget the all time great Tim scully nick sands LSD doc, ‘the sunshine makers’
