The sole purveyor of funk fiddle, Papa John Creach. This man plays like satan being chased from a whore house by Ted Cruz and his evangelical gangsters. He is an esteemed member of the Airplane/Starship and Hot Tuna and in no uncertain terms an unashamed dirty old man.
The cover pictures Papa in his pimp outfit sitting on a lawn chair in the junkyard.
This album should come with a parental warning, it will cause licentious thoughts amongst the most devout and puritanical. Papa has a filthy mind which and not only does he know it he celebrates it. The album is titled Filthy and it heads for the innuendo gutter and stays there with a groove that is indescribably funky, Stax meet the Airplane via the Temptations in their best psychedelic mode, it will never be a classic but it is unforgettable. Yes that really is Keb Mo’ on guitar as well.
I was as I am sure you are all aware too embarrassed to type the song titles so here is the back cover.

Whoa! I need this LP, now!
You want it for the song titles, admit it!
Solely for that very reason Bruce. I bet you own two copies don’t you?
Only one, but I have a huge photocopy of the back cover on the wall above my dining table.
Huh, lightweight! We have the back cover embroidered on a tablecloth – which we only bring out on high days and holidays.
I am willing to send along a photocopy or scan of the album cover to all who need to fulfill their inner dirty old man.
Sounds great. He was brilliant with Airplane/Hot Tuna, very psychedelic … I’ve been told!
