Mr Rhythm's Blues

Andre Williams, writer/performer/producer of crazy R&B grooves - Shake a Tail Feather, Chicken Thighs and Cadillac Jack to name but a few - is the subject of the excellent if depressing documentary Agile, Mobile, Hostile.

At 70 years old, Andre is on really hard times; skint, struggling with the bottle & the pipe, with ailing health and faced with a gruelling tour schedule just to pay his rent but it's a testament to Williams' character that despite all his problems his fun loving, optimism and love for music still shine strong. I know it's a year-in-the-life of type thing but I hankered for more about his early career. Anyways you can make own mind up as the whole film is below courtesy of snagfilms. Muchas Gracias to Luchador Ed for the tip.
