You Better Mind

Artist Song Buy
The Mississippi Sheiks  The World Is Going Wrong   buy on itunes


"I've been using You Better Mind as a working title," said Texas Hobart in an email to Avocado Rabbit as the pair exchanged songs back and forth in this acoustic blues mix. "That works for me," was the reply and, simple as that, a title was born. Nothing very clever or profound. It just seemed right, and so did this mix. We hope you feel the same.

As Blind Willie McTell once said, "The blues ain't nothin' but a good man feelin' bad." What more can you say? It's the blues, and if you're feeling bad it will make you feel, well . better.

As usual, there is a quiz. One of the musicians here is the son of two actors. Which one and who are his parents?
