Sonny Boy

Today’s Daily Dose takes us from West Memphis Arkansas up to Chicago. Many of my favourite blues were written and performed by Sonny Boy Williamson. I mean the Sonny Boy Williamson often known as Sonny Boy Willamson (II) even though he claimed to be the original. Another day, I’ll post tunes by the other Sonny Boy who was also a fantastic harmonica player.

Here’s Eyesight to the Blind

Nine Below Zero

They were too close together…

Now here’s John Hammond, covering Sonny Boy’s Fattening Frogs for Snakes

And finally, one more cover…here’s a very hot James Cotton Band covering Don’t Start Me Talking
