Weekend Beats. A Bellyful of Blues.

Part of the fun in learning the harp has been getting in deep with the blues masters. I’ve been listening to everything I can get my paws on, and the raw emotion in so many of these old blues recordings is like nothing else. So for this “Weekend Beats” I thought I’d share with you a playlist of some of the songs I’ve been digging. You can get them all on iTunes, but please enjoy a tremendous sample of the legendary Big Mama here. Now listen to yer Mama and send that lazy little red rooster on home, it’s time for the weekend!Sad Hours – Little Walter, The Chess 50th Anniversary Collection
