Snooks Eaglin

My coworker hooked me up with Snooks Eaglin’s Legacy of the Blues vol. 2 a while ago and I keep coming back to it every now and then for that funky finger-picking blues, Ray Charles-inspired singing, and sense of humor of course.

“Hey man! Put that hamburger down” has become our inside joke influenced by Snooks’ “Drive it Home.” We occasionally shout it out during our meeting or something and other folks would give us strange look.
