MP3 Download of the Day: Big Bill & the Cool Tones
Rainy Day Blues is one of those songs that reminds
is one of the great cultural legacies of modern America. A
few simple guitar chords, a few lyrics, and a deep, deep feeling
that kicks you in the gut. Big Bill, who hails from the golden
state of California, certainly knows his stuff. Rainy
Day Blues is a mix of simple narrative and guitar pyrotechnics
against a low-down backbeat. The tune pretty much wraps it
all together where the blues are concerned:
"I wish I had someone/I could tell my troubles to/But at least I have my guitar/and I keep on playing the blues..."
You don't see lines like that anywhere but the blues. Download this track and feel Big Bill's cool pain.
