(July 2, 2014): Memphis Slim – Mother Earth

From the 1961 self-titled album, Memphis Slim.  This tune was originally released by Slim (Peter (John) Chatman) in 1951 as a 10″ single (with “Really Got The Blues” as a b-side).  It is probably Slim’s most covered song.  The 1961 LP was released with the colored front here and also one in black, white, and gray.
