Tuesday Bluesday: ELMORE JAMES – ‘The Sky Is Crying’

Happy Tuesday Metalheads!

This week’s Tuesday Bluesday pick is Elmore James with his song ‘The Sky Is Crying’ – which was later covered by Stevie Ray Vaughan. For those of you not in the know, Tuesday Bluesday honors the great blues artists that helped pave Metal’s path. Whether you like blues music or not, you gotta give credit where it’s due. And without these classic blues artists we would not have the Metal we know today.

So, here is the original version for you to check out (complete with that vinyl listening experience).
