I Wake Up Every Morning With Travelin’ On My Mind
Posted in Honey on 07.18.05

I’ve been working diligently on a page to house the stagolee week stuff so that should be up this week. Also a bunch of videos will be going up soon thanks to very generous reader. Also, I’m not sure how i missed the first couple of posts of this but the Locust St has just finished up an amazing series of posts all based around the seven sins – really great writing and even better tracks.

Today’s track again hails from Texas, likes a lot of my recent posts, but it doesn’t subscribe to the economy of words like most of the guitar based Texas blues. Son Becky is a San Antonino blues piano player who plays it fast and loose and reminds me a lot of a Chicago blues players whose lyrics are rooted in the Piedmont. This track features a great piano and washboard combo and some really fun lyrics and spoken parts back his backing band.
