Sound & Groove, Episode 63: "By The Numbers" Part 2

John Lee Hooker, the master of the one-chord boogie and blues music's true crawling king snake, he endured from the 40s right up until the early 2000s. His career never took a backseat in all that time as he made records and toured vitally up until his dying day. No one mastered the style of the primitive core of the blues-  sedate, almost-drone like muddy dredge that conjured up old, hard-working days in the Delta and some sort of voodoo conjuring all at once.

Yes like last week, we present to you songs by the numbers on the S&G Podcast, therefore titles and content of the music that describes the system by which we all devise, order and organize: The Numerical one! This here is the 10th episode of 2015 for the Sound & Groove Podcast (that's right, there are a few more ovedue ones after this!). So sit back and soak in another  musical journey through yet another themed podcast for your listening enjoyment, the 63rd time I've unleashed this podcast on an unsuspecting public. 

If you have been keeping up with S&G on Music of Evan's Mind, there is now a new host for this podcast on And if you're new to this podcast, here's the breakdown: Every month there will be a theme that the selection of music is centered around. It will be jam packed with my analysis, synopsis, anecdotes and other witticisms you might enjoy while I play edited versions of each tune (to make room for talk and for a good 7-9 songs per 45 minute episode). And not to worry, each month will contain a different theme than the last. Got it? Get it? Good. Happy listening to you all!

All comments, questions and feedback are greatly welcomed and appreciated! I encourage participation. Even though I drain an hour off your life by listening to the podcast then checking through the links, at least you don't have to fork over your money to me... though if you feel like, you know... But in all seriousness, let me now what you'd like to hear or see and I'll consider it. Popular approval doesn't always sway me but having fans or listeners get their input would be just grand!
