Boogie Monday

Monday's on the Bus are usually set aside for some softer music to ease back to the work week. I know that most of the riders on the Bus stop by while they are at work and I have always tried to post music that I felt was appropriate for the day of the week.

This week I thought I’d try something different. Maybe something a little more upbeat would help get the riders over that Monday morning blues. Sort of an extension of the partying we did all weekend.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think

Let’s kick off this work week party with some boogie-woogie!

Hi rockin'androllin',

It looks like it I'm not totally alone in my boogie fever. Let's keep it up and see if we can't get a few more folks on their feet.

Katie Webster was the queen of Louisiana Roadhouse Blues in my book. Although she recorded for several labels during the 1950s and 60s, her ten years of recordings on Alligator Records have kept me dancin’ for decades.

“Baby Come On” – Oh yes, this was from her earlier period, early 1960s.
She really came into her own when she returned to recording in the 1980s.

Just a figure of speech, “in my book” = ”as I see it”.
