SKF NOTE: Listening today to Willie Nelson’s version of the song Outskirts of Town, had me thinking of that song on one of favorite albums ever. Jimmy Witherspoon’s Blues is Now remains among my top blues albums — with superb musicians and superb singing from Jimmy Witherspoon.
The drummer on Blues Is Now is Ray Appleton. Here’s a first-class blues shuffle version of the classic Good Rockin’ Tonight. Appleton and the entire band nail this one.
