Lawd, you can't play the blues without Miss Koko Taylor ~ Evil. I love this song. The bass line just knocks me out.


Great harp as well.

Traveling Riverside Blues-Robert Johnson.

In the second verse of this song, Johnson uses the lyrics: "I got womens in Vicksburg, Clean on into Tennessee." This is actually true, but with a slight twist. Whenever Johnson came upon a new town, he would pick the ugliest girl in that town, figuring, that she would have no boyfriend and by extension no competition. He did this so that whenever he returned, he would always have a place to stay.

This is it for tonight. As far as I am concerned this particular cut is the quintessential contemporary blues song. It is down home, juke joint blues at its very best. If you have ever been lucky enough to be in a predominantly Black juke joint on Saturday night down South, this is the kind of incredible music you might be fortunate enough to hear. It is a rare treat.

Mr. Willie King ~ It Takes A Good Woman. This is raw real blues at its very best.
