Although this is the only album Rising Children made, it was ground breaking and is still a water mark for blues. Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder were an excellent fit together for making amazing, undated music. This variation of Jimmy Reed’s, Baby What You Desired Me To Do?, was on their only album, “Increasing Sons”, launched in 1992 and re-issued in 2006. The songs were tape-recorded in 1965-1966 other than for a few re-recorded by Taj Mahal in 1992. Enjoy!
