30 Burl: Big Red Blues

It didn’t always make it to final recordings, but there are three essential styles that Burl was prone to:  punk pop, surf, and a sort-of blues.

Of those, my voice is most suited to the blues shouter style.  You could imagine my voice singing on a Buddy Guy or a Charlie Musselwhite track, if you squinted hard with your ears.

Relatedly, I just heard Ella Fitzgerald’s “Santa Claus Got Stuck in My Chimney” again this season, and the lyrics to this song match that theme closely indeed.

“Big Red Blues” is also a Burl original, one of the few.  Please to enjoy, and as always:  live in one take.
