Da Blooz

Many, many years ago, I came across an album in a used record store by Big Bill Broonzy which was recorded live in a little club somewhere in Europe in the 1950's. I bought that album and pretty much wore it out. Eventually it disappeared; probably lost in a move or sold in a garage sale.

This morning Carla and I were joking that perhaps blues music is about to make a big comeback, what with all of the woes in the financial industry. That got me to thinking about Big Bill. Lo and behold, I found that Broonzy had made a video of my favorite song from that live album and that someone has posted it on Youtube.

So turn down the volume on CNN and listen to "Just a Dream":
