David 'Honeyboy' Edwards died on Monday, so yesterday I listened to a bit of what I had of his in iTunes (mostly the Delta Bluesman album). One of the songs was Just a Spoonful, which brought me to list all of the 'Spoonful' covers that I had: about a dozen. Cream's short six-and-a-half-minute version from Fresh Cream played next and I was reminded that they had a long version on their Wheels of Fire double-album which, back in the day, I once owned. But the album was missing from my iTunes library, so I downloaded it — and am listening to it today. Catherine actually brought into our relationship the Fresh Cream album (along with The Incredible String Band's Wee Tam & The Big Huge), acquired back then from Kay Owen, her British cousin. Much appreciated music, even after all these years.
