Louis Pain



I Don't Want No Woman

King Louie & Baby James


This song was part of a set recorded at the '05 Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival.  It was only the band's third gig together, and we didn't expect to be recorded.  But the music went great and we released the CD.  On this blues shuffle, saxophonist Renato Caranto plays a great solo.  The band was co-led by me and the late, great vocalist "Sweet Baby James" Benton, aka "Portland's Ray Charles."  The group also included Peter Dammann, guitar; Anthony Jones, drums, and guest pianist Janice Scroggins (like James, Janice is sadly deceased now).
