Monday blues

It's high time we got back to starting off the week with some good music. This is John Lee Hooker performing "Boom Boom," c. 1964. There are clips of him performing other arrangements of this song, but I really like the stripped-down, low-key version he does here.

Ah, sister mine.
I like my blues raw and elemental...

I NEVER understand why folks like to tart stuff up.

The visceral quality gets lost, woefully- in the aggrandized forms.
