3275. The Steve Miller Band - Mercury Blues
From: Fly Like an Eagle; Year: 1976; Genre: Blues Rock
For some reason, ever since last night, I had this rather nice cover of a blues by K.C. Douglas on my mind. Though it was originally titled Mercury Boogie and was about as straight-up blues you can get, I've always loved how Steve Miller kept the original blues spirit more or less untouched and added his own blues rock signature sound to it.

Hear Mercury Blues on YouTube.
