Agreed. Phone booth is a terrific blues number.
Like SRV his biggest influence is Albert King but Robert Cray has his gear set up all wrong. His tinny sound can be grating. Short of tuning down half a tone and starting with 0.013 up with a pair of Marshall Major 200 watts heads backed by stacks of Fenders, he could ask Santana for advice on how to get a deep tone without killing his fingers. Still, a fine bluesman.
