Oh, today’s theme is riff?
Ask and you shall receive.
For those that are curious this is Catfish Blues. Popularized by Muddy Waters under the name Rollin Stone (yes, like the band cuz that’s where they got the name).
Robert Petway has the first known recording of it, let’s have his version as well, just to hear the differences between him and Mr. Hendrix.
And since we’re on a roll with the Catfish Blues we can’t very well leave Muddy out can we?
And because I’m a Memphis gal I can’t well get out of a blues post without something from the King can I?
