Funky Blues for Hump Day

Hayes Ware - You Got Me Mama

One of the fun things about doing this blog and having the podcast is that there's so much great material to choose from. One style of music that I particularly enjoy are the funky blues that came out of the late '60s, as blues artists started stretching their sound to incorporate soul and blues styles. Today's selection features a great rumbling groove courtesy the guitar line (played low during the vocals and taken up a few octaves - but otherwise unchanged - for solos). I first heard this one on "Downtown Soulville" (see link on the right) and then got it on Funkaphonix 6. It's a cooker!
