(In rehearsals) we would play blues versions and we played Commit a Crime, for instance, and we had played Blue and Lonesome.
We were recording some new songs and we just hit a wall on this one particular track. We needed to "cleanse the palate" and the ginger for the palate came about when Keith said, Let's play "Blue and Lonesome". Thankfully Krish Sharma, who recorded the album, kicked it into record and what you hear on this record is this one and only take of this song.
Back to Blue & Lonesome.
