Jaybird Coleman, “Mistreatin’ Mama”

Mistreatin’ Mama” is one of the templates of the modern blues sound, and it was covered by a litany of blues legends like: Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, and Leadbelly. Jaybird Coleman, armed with only a harmonica and a mono microphone – you can feel him pouring his soul into every note of “Mistreatin’ Mama.” Remastered from the original 78, there still remains a slow turning crackle that adds authenticity to this iconic mp3.

Listen to the dept of sorrow in that harmonica. A real blues player cannot cheat the feeling of grief on any topic. It comes from within. When the river runs dry on land and in the heart, the music must replenish the soul for hope to be replenished. I’m proud to honor another mp3 by Jaybird Coleman.
