[Harp-L] A recent take on Trouble In Mind

I've played this tune for a long time, it's a longtime favorite.  I was fortunate to hear Big Walter quite a bit back in the day, not that it shows here, other than the opening & closing head arrangement.  It's a song I love where I love to stretch out a bit, perhaps taking too many liberties, in both 1st & 2nd.  I love the simplicity of the 8-bar chord structure of the song--I've compiled an itunes playlist I call "Troubles In Mind", with maybe forty versions of the tune by everyone from Johnny Cash to Janis Joplin to Bob Wills to Jay McShann to Aretha.  It's amazing how many people have put their own stamp on this tune.  Anyway...enjoy.

I'm joined here by my longtime friend and musical partner, James Fraher,
 who, when he's not providing lovely guitar accompaniment, is one of the
 most prolific photographers of blues musicians around.  Google him and 
you'll find some really very cool images he's produced over the years.

Sorry for the quite so-so sound quality--we shot it on a whim at my house and it sounds much better if you plug headphones into your laptop--but thanks for checking it out!
