Fonterra blues

Funk, actually, and funny as anything: this is Texan guitar great Johnny Guitar Watson in 1977 with “A Real Mother For Ya”, predicting the Fonterra-Sanlu scandal:
Wanna buy a new car but the price ain’t right
Be a damn sight cheaper to start riding a bike.
They making milk out of powder
Got the babies crying. . .

The other side of Watson, the slow balladeer, is at its best here in “I Want to Ta Ta You”. He has a capo on the 11th fret, picks with his thumb and. . . well, just listen to that.
