Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud

Let's get your libido loosened up and raring to go with both sides of a 1964 single by Muddy Waters. If, like me, you are unfamiliar with the phrase "John the Conqueror Root" it won't take you long to work out what he is referring to. Suffice to say, it is a source of great agitation for the ladies.

"Short Dress Woman" - Muddy Waters

"My John The Conqueror Root" - Muddy Waters

And here are a couple of "muddy" songs from the mighty Johnny Rivers, neither of which are a tribute to Mr McKinley Morganfield. Although the first has most of Muddy's surname in it and the second has most of Johnny's. So maybe, and a deeply psychological level, they are a tribute after all.

"I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water" - Johnny Rivers

"Muddy River" - Johnny Rivers

I think the only conclusion you can draw is that Johnny has a bit of a thing about mud. And who can blame him...


  1. You are a bit of a man for your Mud videos Ernie!

  2. I am indeed. I'll try to get more sophisticated in future, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

  4. My pal the Anderston Arab has an interesting story about Les Gray and ladies of the night at Bell Street Tech, Dundee
    Apparantly he arrived to play the gig with said ladies in tow, passed out and then came to and gave a stonking concert (all allegedly - apart from the last I'm sure)
