Song of the Day: Elmore James, “Shake Your Money Maker”

Master of the blues slide guitar Elmore James would be 103 today. "Shake Your Money Maker" is a James composition that was released in 1961 with "Look On Yonder Wall" on the B side (both of which appeared on The Butterfield Blues Band’s debut album from 1965). It’s a blues standard, so there are hundreds of covers, but there’s nothing like the original.
