Eddie Kirkland was born August 16, 1923 in Jamaica, raised in Alabama. Also known as the “Gypsy of the Blues” due to his heavy touring, he played with the blues greats. Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Honeyboy Edwards, and Ruth Brown for example.
Until his death on February 27, 2011 he regularly toured the U.S. and Europe, wrote and recorded albums.
Today’s song is taken from his 1995 album The Devil and Other Blues Demons (Trix). This is an album you should definitely check out, if you like your blues electric and unadulterated.
… And you all know I love this tune.
