Come on in my kitchen
Come on in my kitchenThis is an ode to Robert Leroy Johnson, and one of my favourite ol' blues songs written by the man himself. He was one of the first members of the 27 club born on May 8th 1911, and died on August 16th 1938. He spent his whole life poor and no one cared much about his music until after he was gone, but boy do we care about it now. I don't sing this anything like him but I'd like to think that he wouldn't mind me messing with his song too much . Recorded live at the mid wales R&B club, with Toriah Fontaine on Vocals, Jen Scarisbrick on keys, Aiden Conlin on Guitar, Nick Walker on Bass and Jason Ahrendt on Drums .
