Bourgeois Blues: Show 124


The heat is off in the studio tonight.  What’s a girl to do but play the blues and shake a little to keep warm. Sounds good to me.

Other artist showcased on the show include: Freddie King, Kansas Joe and Memphis Minnie, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Son House, Muddy Waters and more…
