What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 555 #601)

Julie's performance of Who's Been Talking took us to a short conversation about how that song does (or does not) fit into the blues. It is minor. On the other hand, it's a rumba, not a shuffle. No firm conclusion reached, but it was a good discussion.

Related, pop quiz! How many recorded Muddy Waters tunes are there that are minor blues?

(Heads up: we don't have the answer - it's meant to make you think.)
