Oscar Brown Jr. – “Work Song”

My Dad had this record. The late 50s and early 60s was a pretty cool time to be young and living on the Near North Side of Chicago, where guys like Oscar Brown Jr. and Otis Rush and Muddy Waters were playing clubs every weekend night, along Rush Street and Wells Street and countless other places.

This one’s for you, Dad. I miss you.
