Bluesy Friday

Woo, Friday. Have some blues:

Original song as played by R.L. Burnside:

A great modern version (2004) with R.L. in attendance just before his death:

Jr. Kimbrough doing "Done Got Old":

Heartless Bastards version:

You're welcome.


  1. I was told it was Boozy Friday over here.

    ...What? BLUEsy?

    Never mind.

    Although I am a big fan of Heartless Bastards, I see it as more of an alt/classic rock hybrid. Saw them from like 10 feet away from the stage when they played Turner Hall. Sang along to "The Mountain" like the freak I am.

    1. Yeah, I love the Heartless Bastards as well. They're definitely not a blues band, but that's still a blues song.

      And it's a bit early over here on the Left Coast for it to be Boozy Friday, especially since we're still recovering from "Thirsty Thursday." Although a little hair of the dog is starting to sound good...

    2. It's happy hour somewhere in the world!

    3. True, although in this particular part of the world Happy Hour starts in exactly 7 minutes. Not that I'm counting...

    4. dude, you can't drink all day unless you start in the morning.

  2. They're definitely not a blues band, but that's still a blues song.

    Quibble conceded.

    1. You say that as if it weren't always "time for some Mekons" for you.
