Garfield Akers – “Jumpin’ and Shoutin’ Blues” (mp3)

The sweet lilting croons of Garfield Akers, and strong rye whiskey are the only remedies known to heal a broken heart. Akers worked as a sharecropper in Mississippi for most of his life; but luckily he also played guitar and sang on his off hours during the 1930s and 1940s. His voice is like no other, and it has influenced many bluesmen, including John Lee Hooker. Sit back and heal your broken heart by reveling in the soulful “Jumpin‚Äô and Shoutin‚Äô Blues.” ¬†
