Song Of The Day – 2/13/11

Song Of The Day – “I Got Love If You Want It” by Slim Harpo

Whether you know him by his real name James Moore, his first stage name Harmonica Slim before it was realized he wasn’t the only one, or his famous name, Slim Harpo, one thing you probably realize is that he possessed one of the most original blues sounds around. Many of his classics…and he had many like “Rainin’ In My Heart,” “King Bee” and “Scratch My Back”…were co-written by him and his wife.  He was oft covered by artists like Neil Young, The Rolling Stones and The Who, who stole this song for their own “original” hit “I’m The Face.”
