BLUE MONDAY

Here’s a nice acoustic honky tonk blues by Floyd Tillman, from an unfinished “blues” LP project Floyd was working on with Ted Daffan. This one goes out to The Swede.


Floyd Tillman • Floyd’s Song • 1957

Floyd Tillman, vocal/guitar; Lew Frisby, bass; Ted Daffan, baritone ukulele; Pete Burke, piano. Houston, c. early 1956.

  1. Love this guy. Such an idiosyncratic style. I'm still dreaming of owning that Bear Family set one of these days.

    1. Although he seems like an unsung hero today, I don't think that was the case so much in his heyday. And he wrote some pretty great hit songs, for himself and others like Patsy Cline. . . .
