It was a hot afternoon in New Orleans when we first recorded Washboard Chaz in front of the Spotted Cat playing his version of "Mystery Train." Chaz and Roberto often played shows together and we thought Roberto’s steel guitar would be a great addition to the track. Months later on a return visit to New Orleans, we recorded Roberto on a stoop in the French Quarter. Together they are the mystery train moving on down the tracks.
