Featured Track on Wake Up Your Ears
John Hammond throws his body and soul into this Tom Waits tune, “Get Behind The Mule.” He stomps his feet, wails on his guitar, blows his harp, and sings like his life hangs in the balance. There’s total commitment to the blues, and this recording leaves nothing to your imagination. He’s all there.
