  1. I like all of the selections that you've posted from this CD. Today's song kind of reminds me of Junior Wells' later "Somebody Hoodooed the Hoodoo Man" (1953).

    1. Thanks, Marie. It's been nice to discover along the way how many of Tampa's songs made it into the Chicago blues lexicon. And Junior did this one as "'Bout the Break of Day" around the same period as "Hoodoo Man."
