Sunnyland Slim, with Bob Stroger, Odie Payne, and Lurrie Bell

I wrote about Bob Stroger a few days ago.  I saw him for the first time as a reasonably elderly man.  Here he is as a young one backing Sunnyland Slim, with Lurrie Bell on guitar.  One of the things I love about it is that the video really features drummer Odie Payne, (who drummed on a number of Chuck Berry cuts), first mugging to the crowd, then playing.  (Hubert Sumlin is supposedly there, but I didn't see him in the bits I watched.  I know he's on some of the other songs from this set.)
