Robin Rogers: Hesitation Blues

I heard this on either LastFm, or on my cable blues radio station.  I have heard this song a million times, but I really think that Robin Rogers version was the best that  I have heard and this has that nice 1920s feel to it.

Alberta Hunter: Nobody Knows You When Your Down and Out

Not sure if I posted this a long time ago, but when you have been around as long as this blog, reposting is a good thing sometimes:-)  Besides its Alberta Hunter

Blues Shack on the Radio  
Jump on board, we're takin' a trip to Big Mama's virtual Juke Joint down that dusty dead end road
. March 13th on Hammered By The Blues  (every Sunday on KOWZ 1170AM at 10pm)we will fire up the mercury blues cruiser and join the party. As we round the last curve we come upon an old shack with a flickerin' neon sign proclaimin' Juke Joint. As we join the other beautiful people inside we find the first act just hittin' the dimly lit stage. Blues Cargo came all the way from Greece to get this party started with tracks off 'Delayed Delivery'. We don't know if the buzz is the excitement of the music or Big Mama's shine, but everyone hits the dance floor asFrankie's Blues Mission takes control with a handful off 'Sleepin' Dog'. Folks are movin' in unison as the Chi-Town Chanteuse Grana' Louiseweaves a web of seduction as she plys her wares off 'Gettin' Kinda Rough'. To take this party to new heights, Jim Byrnes simply blows the roof off with fresh dynamite off his latest 'Everywhere West'. Fully spent and travelin' back home, we gots 10 inch smiles plastered to our 8 inch faces!   
We live for the moment and treasure the past;
We party hard so's those memories will last;  
We be trippin' light fantastic and tippin' a few;     
We invite just the best, especially friends like you!
