Thought Of The Day – 5/22/13

If you’re a fan of the blues then you have to know the names Robert Johnson and Elmore James.  And if you know the names Johnson and James, you likely also know the song “Dust My Broom.”

Johnson — the legendary bluesman who supposedly sold his soul to the devil at a Mississippi crossroads in exchange for guitar lessons — wrote and performed the original version of the song in 1936.  Fifteen years later in 1951, James released an updated version featuring his electric slide guitar and some re-worked lyrics.

Blues aficionados often debate which of the two versions is best.  According to the MrSEC iPod, it’s James’ electrified track.

 

“No, I don’t want no woman want every downtown man she meets.”
