1939. Big Joe Turner & Pete Johnson.

I'm no blues man but love this song so much I just wanted to have a crack at it. My favourite version of this is actually from Dr Bekken ( who is also a member here) from his album 'The Naked Blues' where he does a smokin piano arrangement of the song.

Anyhow this is my uke version, dodgy white-boy style :o


thanks for taking a look gang. :)

Thankyou Stan, rosceaux and cb. I really appreciate the encouragment fellas. Thought I perhaps should have waited a week or two and got the feel of it better but I have a terribly short attention span and no patience to boot... :o
