But what it really seals it is the loving, hilarious charm in his between-songs banter. Stormy Monday. Hoochie Coochie Man. Back Door Man. Sweet Home Chicago. Boom Boom. Highway Stop Breakin' Down. I'm In the Mood. Three O'Clock Blues. Key To the Highway. Rock Me I Get The Blues - Various - Grab This & Dance. Vol 24 (Vinyl. Love In Vain. Track Listing - LP) 2. Boogie Chillun'. Forty Four Blues. I Can't Be Satisfied.
T-Bone Blues. Cross Road Blues. I'm Ready. Blues Before Sunrise. Everday I Have the Blues. Me and the Devil Blues. How Many More Years. Messin' With the Kid. I hope you all have a great weekend.

You'll finish in record time! Take it from me. Thanks I Get The Blues - Various - Grab This & Dance.
