Week 3 - Survivor Blues History

Week 3: "Woman Don’t Lie"

Originally by Luther “Snake Boy” Johnson

(August 30th, 1941 – March 18, 1976)

 

 Walter Talks About the Song: 

 

"Johnson was born in Davisboro, GA, where he started as a guitarist in gospel groups, but then gravitated toward the blues, and relocated to Chicago in the early 60s. Here he backed up Elmore James and Muddy Waters among others.

 

He recorded his debut album in 1969 and released his final album the year he died as a thirty-four-year-old. I was attracted to the groove and the feel of this song.

 

We decided to add a bit of funk to the original groove. We brought in the amazing vocalist Sugaray Rayford to help me sing this one."
