Rufus Thomas, Blues Man!

Rufus Thomas - Talking 'Bout True Love

Today's "Tuesday Is Blues Day" feature is from Rufus Thomas, who's no stranger to this blog. When Rufus wasn't walking the dog or doing the funky chicken/penguin/robot/bird, he was a solid blues shouter - truthfully, even his funkiest stuff was steeped in the blues - and Rufus' blues numbers, generally B-sides (today's selection was the flip to "Sister's Got a Boyfriend") or album tracks (check out "Soul Food" on Do The Funky Chicken), are worth checking out. On today's selection the Stax musicians do their usual good work and Rufus makes good use of the "one and one is two, two and two is four" blues lyric.
