Song of the Day: John Paul Hammond, “Chaka Dooky Doo”

Son of the legendary producer and ethnomusicologist John Hammond, singer and musician John Paul Hammond was born on this day in 1942. His 1963 debut album John Hammond is considered the first blues album done by a white artist. While not commercially successful, he is a well-respected musician who at one time had Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix in his band at the same time. "Chaka Dooky Doo" is from the 1973 album Triumvirate, which featured Mike Bloomfield on guitar and Dr. John on keyboard.
