Mississippi John Hurt-Monday Morning Blues

There's nothing Hollywood about Mississippi John Hurt. He tells it like it is and talks about what he knows. And you can tell Hurt knows something about the Monday Morning Blues. No matter where you are or where you're headed this fine Monday, I bet you got a case of the blues. The weekend seems like a distant memory, future salvation seems so far away. But be strong, and know that John Hurt's got your back with a story that makes your case of blues seem trivial by comparison.

In a year marked more and more by the pressures of record labels (Lupe and Frank Ocean), Mississippi John Hurt's music is about as about as pure as you can get. Telling the tale of a man who has to go to the mines as a punishment for an unknown crime, you can't help but feel for the guy, with a fate so cruel, and yet on top of it, he can't even find his Monday morning shoes. While the story is sad, the music is about as alive as you can get. So wherever you are this Monday, jam with the eternal Mississippi John Hurt and help put your Monday morning blues behind ya.
