Song of the Day: Muddy Waters, “Got My Mojo Workin'”

Happy heavenly birthday to Chicago Blues legend Muddy Waters, born MccKinley Morganfield in Rolling Fork, Mississippi on this day in 1913. Here’s a performance of his signature tune, "Got My Mojo Workin’," from a performance on German TV in 1976. He has his band from the 1970’s (Pinetop Perkins, piano; Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, drums; Calvin "Fuzz" Jones, bass; Luther "Guitar Junior" Johnson and Bob Margolin, guitars; and Jerry Portnoy, harmonica) and a guest appearance by Junior Wells at the end.
