63 Years Ago: 'Ludella' Recorded by Jimmy Rogers

In 1950, Jimmy Rogers recorded this blues classic for Chess Records. It was also his first solo recording for the label along with 'That's All Right". 

It was recorded similarly Muddy Waters' performance ; Ernest "Big" Crawford on bass, Little Walter on harmonica, and Jimmy singing and playing the guitar. 

Rogers was most well known for being in Muddy Waters band; but he eventually went on his own in 1954, before quitting the industry for a few years until his comeback in the early 80's.  He died in 1997 and was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1995.

Have a listen to this great classic!
