Mojo Working

YouTube is a hell of a thing. I’ve just discovered what a great resource it is for clips of old blues greats. For example...

Big Mama Thornton



Muddy Waters and Sonny Boy Williamson



There’s lots more old footage like this - Howlin’ Wolf, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Bill Broonzy, John Lee Hooker, Leadbelly, Memphis Slim - I’ve been like a kid in a sweetshop today. If you want to see more, here's a couple of playlists to get you started.
