You Don't Have To Go

I was listening to Joe Bonamassa's weekly blues show on Sirius and he mentioned that the guitar great Albert King was Jimmy Reed's drummer for a time. I never knew that before but I looked it up and it is true, in fact he is playing on this very cut from 1952. More about Jimmy and Albert here. Alcohol destroyed Reed in the end.

I loved Reed. Don't remember when I first started buying his records,but was very young.
