Blues Moon Radio playlist for Feb. 5, 2013

Blues Moon Radio playlist for Feb. 5, 2013

Welcome! RockyDawg, Blues Defender, and I are always happy to have you join us for one of the longest running radio shows in the country - nearly a quarter of a century - and still playing the very best of Blues, old-style R&B and Roots music each and (almost) every Tuesday at 6 p.m. ET/USA (usually -5 GMT for our global streamers!).
Chick Willis "The Stoop Down Man"
Living Blues Awards 2006:
Best Live Performer

Tonight's show is dedicated to Chick Willis, who reports that he is unable to hug or kiss his fans for a while because his immune system has been weakened in his fight against cancer. We promised him virtual hugs and kisses via music, thus the show is dedicated to the Chick-Man!

We love YOU, Chick! We send just as much love to all our other Blues friends going through health and wellness issues... you stay in our thoughts and prayers daily (see earlier post).

Some of the songs you will hear on Tuesday's program include:

Muddy Waters - Mannish Boy (by birthday request for long time listener Pete: HBD2U, sweet Pete!)

Early Valentine's tribute

(see earlier post about conflict between Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day):

Oh, everything starts all fuzzy-wuzzy and lovey-dovey, doncha know?

Cephas and Wiggins - The Blues Will Do Your Heart Good
Anson Funderburgh - My Heart

Sonny Boy Williamson - I Cross My Heart (from King Biscuit Time - early version)
Sonny Boy Williamson - Cross My Heart (studio version from much later time)
Sugar Boy Crawford - No More Heartaches

But then the clouds start rolling in...

Muddy Waters' Tribute Band - Clouds in My Heart
Willie Dixon - Pain in My Heart
Otis Clay - Piece of My Heart (paying tribute to Janis Joplin, whose birthdate just passed)

Robert Johnson - Drunken Hearted Man
Blind Boy Fuller - Painful Hearted Man
Lonnie Johnson - You Have No Love in Your Heart

It goes from b-a-a-a-a-a-d to worse

Tutu Jones - You Shatter My Heart
Mark and Robben Ford - Heart Breakin' Blues
Chuck Willis - You Broke My Heart

Red Prysock - Crying My Heart Out
John Lee Hooker - Heart Trouble Blues
Marv Ward - Heart of Stone

 But, in the end, you are always ready to give love another try.

The Paladins - Follow Your Heart
Shirley Johnson - Unchain My Heart

Or ARE you?

Janiva Magness - One Heartache Too Late
