Magic Sam -- "Easy Baby"
This year we went from winter straight to summer here in Texas. So, SOTS's chief music scout, Dr. C. and I spent yesterday on the patio enjoying a wonderful breeze. The birds were chirping busily until about noon, and it got awfully quiet. But as long as there's music, silence is not really an option in our household.
I began to search for some cover versions of a favorite of hubby and mine and somehow ended up listening to the Blues. Actually, it was Beth Hart's cover of "I'd Rather Go Blind" that led us to a Roomful of Blues cover of Magic Sam's "Easy Baby." After lots of wows and repeats of the songs mentioned above, I decided to post them all.
I hope you all enjoy them as much as we did.
And here is another performance by Beth with Jeff Beck on guitar. Goose-flesh indicator: red.
Don't you like to shed tears sometimes for the sheer beauty of a song? Ol' Raggedy sure does.
Now here's Roomful of Blues with "Easy Baby."
And, finally, the original "Easy Baby" by Magic Sam. This is what I call blues power.
