Sunday Morning Blues: August 14th, 2016

This week we began with a tribute to the late blues guitarist and singer Son Seals, whose classic “Funky Bitch” has been co-opted by jam bands coast to coast! His birthday is on the 15th and the Arkansas-born Chicago star gave us so much great music before his passing. His best is on the Alligator Records compilation “Deluxe Edition,” the series of hits CD’s that the label has put out for most of their big blues stars. Start there!

Thanks to Pat Ring, longtime listener from Maine who reminded us that the anniversary of the 1969 Woodstock Festival is August 15th to the 17th (really to the 18th because Hendrix didn’t finish up the festival until Monday morning – they ran way late!). We built a set of Woodstock blues for you from his request!
