. . . I say I’m feelin’ mighty fine
got good music on my radio . . .
Well, maybe not on my radio, but for damn-sure on Mixcloud!
It’s time to doctor that eggnog, lace up those Chuck Taylors, crank up the hi-fi, and shake off some holiday pounds to a mix of toe-tappin’, finger-snappin’, butt-bumpin’ blues.
Let’s start off with that venerable icon, Mr. B.B. King. The dude just doesn’t get enough credit as a blues vocalist. (BTW, someone told me he never sings at the same time he’s playing Lucille. Whaddya think?)
The Reverend Horton Heat’s Gibson is SMOKIN’ on “We Three Kings”!
And there’s some serious hip-shakin’ to be had as Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials get downright naughty in “Christmas Time”.
This is dedicated to Shemekia Copeland. Your “Stay A Little Longer, Santa” is destined to become every bit the timeless sexy holiday standard that Eartha Kitt's “Santa Baby” is. Thanks for keeping the blues alive with that stops-you-dead-in-your-tracks voice of yours.
