Saturday Music Post - Rock Me Baby

"Rock Me Baby" is one of the most instantly recognized blues numbers, made famous by B.B. King and Muddy Waters, and covered by dozens or even hundreds of artists. As with so many twelve-bar blues numbers, the lyrics are reminiscent of earlier songs, including Muddy Waters's own "All Night Long" and Big Bill Broonzy's "Rockin' Chair Blues."

(I queue the posts up about six months in advance, and I don’t look ahead once they are posted. So I was surprised to see BB King when I woke up in Memphis. Total coincidence.)

The clips are at The Faculty Lounge.
