My mojo is DRM locked and I could not get it working.

Totally agree with you young thing. Remember to service your Mojo regularly.

 
"BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRBRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!"  : )

This is one of tracks in a new documentary screening at the Toronto Film Festival – Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars – in the VO EC says this had a huge influence on his love of R&B


Just a good job I've got my headphones on in the office - this needs a bit of volume
If someone called me a "low-down HOOCHY COOCHER"...well, I'm not sure how I'd respond to that.
OH YEAH! {#Bananapiano}
You and I are on the same wavelength—channel eclectic—and it's almost too weird to be true! Another great one I own, you're telepathic! You've definitely GOT YOUR MOJO WORKIN!
y'all better get to church and stop listening to this blue music

King Muddy  {#Clap}
Who is the King of the Blues?{#Crown}
Mr. Waters - If you meet my brother up there, please let him sit in on a session.  His music has deep roots.  Thank you.  I miss him.

Of course everything is personal choice but remember that all modern music started from blues. Muddy Waters was one of the first guys to do electric blues so in the 1950's this was groundbreaking.
 
While most of jazz and rock 'n' roll certainly have their roots in the blues, it seems like a bit of an overstatement to say that "all modern music started from blues".
Well this brings back fond memories!  An enormous African-American guy calling himself Jelly Belly (seriously, he was huge!) made the rounds through several Boston and Cambridge dive bars in the mid-80s and he'd do this piece "in da Chicago staahl" and just kill it.  It became something of his signature piece and watching him do it after you'd downed several pints was truly something to behold.  He'd move that bulk around on those little bar stages like nobody's business - wiping the sweat off his forehead with a white hanky every few seconds - and man, you believed his mojo really was workin' by the time he wrapped it up!   Nicest guy too — he had a shockingly bright white smile that he loved to show off and he always graciously took requests.  Some nights he'd have a basket that he'd place at the edge of the stage and it seemed like it was always overflowing with cash by the end of his set.  Great times, great song!
 
Second that!  {#Roflol}

In this case, yes—like a blue-balls moon...

That Rhino Blues Masters series was really, really good. Shame it's out of print. 
Love MW....and Leadbelly....King of the 12 string... 
This song is a perfect fit for advertisements of the little pill that allows you to have a side by side but separate bath with your loved one.
