BLUE MONDAY

The first time I heard the original single version of this song on a reissue LP back in the mid-60s it caused “total destruction to [my] mind”; fifty years later it retains that power. Recently I was comparing that version with an earlier attempt and apart from an unfortunate faded ending I think this early version gets my vote for being the most dangerous of all Elmore James’ “Dust My Broom” iterations.
