Today’s music video is by Irishman Van Morrision, singing Brown Eyed Girl:Van was born in Belfast. He was the lead singer of the early Sixties group Them, which had hits in 1964 with Gloria (with Jimmy Page brought in as a session musician to play guitar) and Baby Please Don’t Go. In 1967, he recorded his first solo album, which included Brown Eyed Girl, still one of the most popular songs released during the Summer of Love. Baby Please Don’t Go is a classic blues song listed by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the “500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll.” It was first recorded by Big Joe Williams in 1935. Here is a live version with Muddy Waters, who invites a young Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on stage to perform 33 years ago:Muddy Waters, whose real name was McKinley Morganfield, died two years later, in 1983, at the age of 70. He was considered the father of the modern Chicago blues, which electrified the blues from Delta region of Mississippi, where Muddy was from — he moved to Chicago in 1940.
