You Gonna Quit Me Blues

We're always looking for easy, happy little tunes that we can warm up on, songs that we can also also use for a soundcheck before a show. The best ones are those that let everybody just stretch out. We can pass it all around, and everybody gets a solo or two. Here's a perfect example. Now, this great old Blind Blake tune from the 1920s had almost gotten away from us. We used to play it a lot 10 years ago or so, but we hadn't it a quite a while. In fact, it occurred to us that our newer members -- Randy Hamilton and Paul Martin -- hadn't even heard it. Well, we fixed that -- right here.
