Monday morning blues: If you don't love blues, you hate America

I think I need to use at least two tracks today.  I don't like going with the obvious choice, but Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Texas Flood" is incredibly obvious, so I shouldn't use it, but it is so clear that I can't not use it.  So, I'll add something a little off the beaten path.  Here's the title track from Stevie Ray Vaughan's Texas Flood, and Big Bill Broonzy's "Southern Flood Blues," recorded in 1937.  As with most of the classic blues artists, for those looking to collect, I have the JSP boxed set, in this case, All the Classic Sides: 1928-1937.  (Big Bill recorded a lot).
