Saturday Matinee – Big Mama Thornton, The Doors, John Lee Hooker & JLH jr.

by

Big Mama Thornton blows harp, and now it’s got scars, too.

Now I don’t generally like mashups, but this one is kinda cool, mixing John Lee Hooker with the Doors, cranking “Road House Blues.” (Nixing Jim Morrison’s vocals would have been better though, but that’s just my opinion.)

Here’s John Lee Hooker from 1980’s Montreal Jazz Festival with “Roll Me Like You Roll A Wagon Wheel.” Pure boogie.

John Lee Hooker Jr. has been performing for a while, also, but only as a frontman.  This is about the best I could come up with on short notice.

[Whoop! I almost forgot! We're gonna announce the Contest Wiener tomorrow, so be back here for the confetti and horns, and bring your own water balloons!]
