Roy Buchanan with Johnny & Shuggie Otis

Toch wel leuk dat FB,kom je leuke filmpjes tegen. Waarschijnlijk opnames uit een TV special uit de begin jaren 70.Een nog jonge Roy Buchanan,een piepjonge Shuggie en pa Johnny achter de piano.
Zeer bijzonder omdat er ,in tegenstelling met Roy weinig videomateriaal van Shuggie in omloop is.
