Song of the Day

Today’s song of the day is Willie Mabon – The Seventh Son.  Released in 1955 on Chess, this Willie Dixon penned tune was first released as a single by Willie Mabon, a Chicago blues man and piano player who here is accompanied here by a nice horn section in lieu of guitar.  It shoulda been a hit for him, but wasn’t.  It was for Johnny Rivers who took it to number 7.  For your listening pleasure.
