George Street Maracas CCR
I don't know why Creedence doesn't show up on more busker playlists - I've been humming this the rest of the day. At first glance, this act seemed a little 'spartan' - and I admit I first paused more out of a sense of sympathy.
Then the genius became apparent. The voice is actually not bad - it could have been good once, before the 'lifestyle' took its toll - and the performance is practically a capella. Talk about your bare bones, self accompanying rhythm section. Maracas? Genius.
Unique execution, and an ultimate road-ready kit you can stash in coat pockets. The soul of busking.
