  1. B Side of "Shake, Rattle And Roll"? Great blues! And a great listen for first record of the day. Thank you.

    1. Thank you, BW. Agreed: nothing like a good loping blues from Big Joe to start the day. And as much as I love "Shake, Rattle and Roll," "You Know I Love You" would be my A side. . . .
