    One of my favourites from the great Muddy Waters. He certainly had a flair for lyrics.

    Some day soon I'll be out walkin' with my baby.

    ^ Dig that crazy pompadour!

    All my favorite blues recordings come from the era when songs focused on lyrics, and the instruments were there to support the vocals. I can appreciate the amazing guitar virtuosity that's been so prevalent since the '70s, but for me, that's not what the blues are about. Give me a great song with simple, straightforward riffs any day. Muddy Waters was the "King Bee" at that kind of music.
