Happy New Year, and every year, and every day in the year, to you, and all you hold dear, and the universe, in the circle.

Peace to all.

my ignorance of early blues could fill volumes, but I sure love the bare bonesyness of this tune.

Oh, my father loves Lightning Hopkins.

Personally, I'm not much into Blues, but I spent many a day in my youth listening.

fairlane: Funny, I never cared much for the Blues early on, but now, I have 'em, all around! ; (

My best to you and your family also!
