Single : Help Me – Sonny Boy Williamson

images-9

CB caught the beat to this  instantly.  One listen and he knew he was hooked.

Bass and drums lay it down with some great organ filling in.  Love that organ sound!  Sonny Boy does the rest.  Harp, vocals and feel.  Man does it sound good!  Three minutes of some of the best kind of music in CB’s world.  This song just simmers.

This song gets into you body and soul.  Sets a certain mood that’s hard to shake.  You won’t want to shake it, you’ll want to hear a thirty minute jam.

Somebody help that guy. “I can’t do it all by myself”

    Nice, funky tune. Sonny Boy II I think. Junior Wells does a cool version too.

      Yup, II. Love the eerie sound in this. It’s the organ. Love it all. Ya there’s a few really good versions, Wells does a cool one. I thought a blues guy like you would chime in. Something about this music CB can never get enough of.

      John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers an Ten Years After had nice versions too.

        I call myself a fan of both those bands and I don’t think I ever heard their versions. Just listened to them. Fantastic! Thanks for that.

    “Help Me” from Sonny Boy II goes back to “Green Onions,” from Booker T and the MGs.

      Yup, same groove. Booker T and the MGs do it for me. I think the first take CB did was on ‘Green Onions’
