The Mississippi Sheiks - Volume 1

Artist: The Mississippi Sheiks
Album: The Complete Recorded Works Volume 1
Song: Jake Leg Blues
Genre: Blues

The man in black had one hell of a life and has covered everyone ranging from Neil Young, Sting, and even Nine Inch Nails. Perhaps one of Johnny Cash’s most famous songs, “Boy Named Sue,” is also a cover song. Boy Named Sue is actually a poem by a man most of us knew growing up. Shel Silverstein! It’s a bit different than The Giving Tree and Where the Sidewalk Ends, but it’s an extremely well written poem in my opinion. To be honest, I couldn’t think of a better person to perform it live.
