Dave Alvin and Phil Alvin have shared another new track from their upcoming album Lost Time. “Wee Baby Blues” is streaming on Southern Living.
“It’s a song from our mentor, blues shouter Big Joe Turner that, and like many of his songs, is sentimental for us,” says Dave Alvin. “He was an early musical hero of ours and remains so now. When we were young teenagers, Phil and I followed Big Joe around from gig to gig, eventually getting to be lifelong friends with him. My brother had a pretty good blues band when he was a teenager and performed this song back then many times with Big Joe.”
