Song of the Day: Hound Dog Taylor, “Roll Your Moneymaker”

Chicago blues slide guitarist Theodore Roosevelt "Hound Dog" Taylor was born on this day in 1912. Hound Dog had six fingers on each hand and I think he used all of them. "Roll Your Moneymaker" is a modified version of Elmore James’s "Shake Your Moneymaker," a great song to show off one’s skills on slide guitar. It’s from his 1973 Alligator Records release Natural Boogie.
