11/13/2008 The Rockhouse

Why even have a Library of Congress if they aren’t preserving the crucial work of guys like T-Bone Walker? Fortunately, they are! This week we celebrate the recently-announced inclusion of Stormy Monday in the select list of preserved recordings by the LoC. Also a tribute to recently deceased Miriam Makeba and a listen to three tracks from the just issued for the first time 1966 last album by Little Willie John!

roots vibe of See-I’s Mean Joe Green.
