Song of the Day: Robert Lockwood Jr., “Mean Black Spider”

Robert Lockwood Jr., also known as Robert "Junior" Lockwood, would be celebrating birthday #106 today. Lockwood was the only guitarist to have learned to play directly from Robert Johnson, thus the nickname Robert "Junior." He was a longtime associate of Sonny Boy Williamson II and worked on many of Little Walter’s records in the ’50’s. "Mean Black Spider" might have been an unrecorded Robert Johnson song.
