Mona Lisa must have had the Highway Blues

A bit of a blues theme today. From a bunch of different directions.

Just follow the links and click on "Download This File"

Blind Willie McTell & Mary Willis - Talk To Your Wimmin' About The Blues
This is from a 78 from 1931. Lots of lines in this that have floated around to other traditional blues songs.

Climax Blues Band - Come On Into My Kitchen
The Robert Johnson classic recorded on the great CBB album "Tightly Knit".

Wilburn Brothers - Deep Elem Blues
Old traditional hillbilly blues.

Blues Brothers - Rubber Biscuit
A cover of the doo wop song from "The Chips" as done by Elwood & Jake.

Ry Cooder - Viola Lee Blues
A cover of the Gus Cannon's Jug Stompers classic.

Fenton Robinson - Somebody Loan Me A Dime
Underappreciated Chicago blues guitarist. This song made popular by Boz Skaggs with a little help from Duane Allman.

Bugs Henderson - Boppin' The Blues
Great Texan guitar player who's been around the block a few times.

Johnny Cash - Cocaine Blues
From the great album Live At Folsom Prison

Pot Liquor - Rooster Blues
Some southern fried hard rock from 1970.

Quicksilver Messenger Service - California Sate Correctional Facility Blues
From the 1972 album "Comin' Thru"

Pigpen - I'm A Lovin' Man
This was a unreleased recording from Pigpen, one of the original members of the Grateful Dead.

Billy Peek - Can A White Boy Play The Blues
Famed bluesman that has been playing nonstop for 30 years in St. Louis. If your ever in St. Loouis check him out.

Johnny Winter - Mean Town Blues
Recorded live at Woodstock.

If you like what you hear please research the aritst and buy their music, it will sound so much better than this condensed mp3 crap and they deserve it anyway! If anyone has any problems about me sharing this music please let me know and I will happily stop.
