Summertime Blues edition

“Monday again, I can’t face another day…”: Janiva Magness captures the start of the workweek perfectly with this opening line from the song “I Need a Man” off her new album Original, but hopefully we can help you through the day (and week) a bit with this Summertime Blues edition of our BluesPowR Radio Hour.

Featuring new music from the likes of Royal Southern Brotherhood, Walter Trout, John Mayall, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Deanna Bogart, Keb’ Mo’, and Ronnie Earl, to name just a few, this is another episode well worth checking out.

And here, for those of you wondering, are a few more of the words from Magness’ “I Need a Man”, another of the tracks you’ll hear on this edition of our program.

“Monday again, I can’t face another day –
people all up in my face,
Lord, help me through this day.
I swear I’m so tired, of rattin’ with the race –
look real close, there ain’t no doubt,
you’ll see it on my face.

And I don’t care if it’s right or if it’s wrong,
give me one good reason I’m alone.
Please don’t say I hafta’ wait,
can’t you see it’s gettin’ late?
Don’t tell me that you’re doin’ all you can.
I need a man (I need a man)
I need a man (I need a man)
I need a man (I need a man)
I just need a man (just a good man)”
