Guy had a terrific face, marvelously expressive. Must've been a real lady killer (as they used to say).

Call it Stormy Monday

T-Bone, always one of my favorites.

That Stormy Monday clip was my first introduction to T-Bone's music. I'd heard covers and found the video when searching for the original, then ran right out to pick up his ablums. Thanks for this post.
