I used to love Sleepy John Estes. I remember, back when I was 15, trying to impress this young lady I’d enticed back to my room by playing some Sleepy John. I thought it was so sophisticated to be into this old authentic blues. Very disappointing. She was more into Herman’s Hermits. We didn’t last long!!
I still love the Blues. Sleepy John was special – that mandolin added a dimension.
