Jump Blues · Survival

Song of the Day

Today’s Song of the Day is brought to you by one of the founding fathers of jump blues, Wynonie Harris. Many moons ago, I bought a double (or was it a triple?) CD set of his. I found a lot of the songs too shouty. But that’s the jump blues way. Why sing it when you can shout it?

This is his song, Don’t Roll Those Bloodshot Eyes at Me.
