TIMES ARE GETTING TOUGHER THAN TOUGH * JIMMY WITHERSPOON * VOCALION 1278 * UK
An original Jimmy Witherspoon composition, Times Are Gettin'
Tougher Than Tough, is sung here on this live recording from Ben
Shapiro's Renaissance Club: 8424 Sunset Blvd West Hollywood California.
Once a famous Jazz club on Sunset Strip (then opposite Ciro's) the venue
still exists today (now) known as The House of Blues.
Jimmy Witherspoon sings, backed with Gerry Mulligan and Ben Webster, Sax's; Mel Lewis, drums; Leroy Vinegar bass and Jimmy Rowles piano, Times Are Gettin' Tougher Than Tough is a trenchant comment that could be sung anytime throughout modern history and most likely will be relevant for the next five hundred years until more folk start to think for themselves and not follow false prophets (Politicians, the MSM, the EUSSR, the Ad men ect.,).
