"Raymond George is probably the best blues guitar player in the world. Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughn — these guys can't touch him." That's high praise indeed from south Louisiana saxophonist Webster Smith, who played with George in the 1960s and '70s at the legendary Graveyard Inn near Thibodaux, La. An Alabama native, George moved to Louisiana and cut his biggest song for the Houma label, the swamp-pop-infused "If I Should Lose You" b/w "Soul Sound." A member of the South Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, George still plays the Houma clubs as well as at bigger events like the Voice of the Wetlands festival. "Raymond is the real deal," fellow musician Thaddeus Richard said. "He just never had the chance to make it to the big time, but he's a bad dude."
