Here are two more blues songs for your listening pleasure.

Kansas City Blues, the “standard” version, the Lieber and Stoller 1952 song images-5 recorded in 1959 by Wilbert Harrison and later by the Beatles and a ton of others. Why and how Lieber and Stoller get credit for writing the song is a good question, because it’s quite an old blues and there are a kajillion versions of it, which indicates the song’s age and appeal. I would check out the Jim Jackson 1927 recording of it. Meanwhile, here’s Bumba having a go at it.

And while we’re having a go at it here’s another very old blues, Easy Rider. I play it here with only two chords.
