It's a Man Down There!

G.L. Crockett - It's a Man Down There

Bluesman G.L. Crockett is known mainly for his Chess rockabilly "Look Out Mabel" and today's selection, a mid-'60s blues hit on the Four Brothers label. "It's a Man Down There" borrowed lyrics from Sonny Boy Williamson's "One Way Out" and aped Jimmy Reed's backporch boogie beat and boozy vocals to create an engaging tune.
