Description
Back in August 2007 I posted the original. Although I've always been fond of this tune I ended up HATING the original post. The mix was very murky... I had three rhythm guitars (two electric and one acoustic) and two lead guitars. It was a mess!

Anyway, I've reduced the rhythm guitars down to one (the original acoustic guitar track "electrified"!) which I alternate with the lead riffs. I've also beefed up the bass and drums. All in all a much cleaner version!

Seems to me this makes a good "B-Side" to Getaway. :-)

Hope you enjoy it!

Lyrics
BOOGIE MY BLUES

I.
Well I leave here in the mornin'.
I work hard all the day.
When I get home in the evenin' time
I need you in that special way.

Refrains:
So come on, take me higher...
Oh honey, boogie my blues away!

So come on, take me higher...
Yeah baby, boogie my blues away!

So come on, take me higher...
Don't let me down,
Boogie my blues away!

That's what I say...

II.
Well life is what we make it mama.
There's no time for the doom and gloom.
We'd better get down while we still can;
we'll be gettin' old pretty soon!

Get down baby!

Ahh yeah...
You know what I'm talkin' about...

A-standin' there in the moonlight honey,
you know you look divine.
We'll be feelin' fine in a little while,
if I boogie yours and you boogie mine!

III.
Sometimes this ol' life gets me down and low
well that's for sure.
But just one look at you, pretty mama;
---I remember what I'm livin' for!

Refrains:
So come on, take me higher...
Don't let me down!
Boogie my blues away!

Yeah, come on, take me higher...
Boogie my blues away!

Everyday!

Yeah!

Come on, honey...
Don't just lay there!

Ahh yeah...

Ahhh... that's NICE!

i remember this
much more dynamic for sure Mike. the stripped down works better.

a big plus is the drums and bass have a nice presence and solidifying the bottom end. nicely re-edited too.

Firsties!
Hi Vic. I'm so glad to finally get this out in a decent version. Got a few other new and improved (even "Lemon fresh") oldies lying in store. I'm spending a lot more time on newbies these days. Re-releasing upgraded oldies will fill the spaces between new tunes.

Also, this and many others will be new to folks who came to the site after I left.

Anyway, thanks as always for listening (and for all your tech help!).

Be well bro!

This
gave me shades of Deep Purple, but not quite since it sounds more original than reminiscent. Good ol' no fancy stuff, straight forward rockin. You just won a fan.

Thanks Sammy!
If memory serves... back when I recorded the original (Heavier) version the idea was to create a Jerry Lee Lewis meets ZZ Top kind of vibe. Not sure I pulled that off, but I've always liked this tune. Glad to finally get it out in a more accessible version.

I appreciate the thumbs up!

Be well friend!

Hi Bob!
On this version I did try to make it "live" as possible. Glad you enjoyed it!

Be well friend!

Nice job Michael. The electrified acoustic has that just right distortion going for it. I swear the scent of incense was in the air and I started halucinating and passed a joint to the next guy in the row.

Thanks Tom!
Hope that WAS incense and not the burrito I had while mixing! ;-)

Hey! Nice to know you're no BOGART! Ha ha!

Be well bro!

Raw boogie
It's interesting to revisit songs we like because it reflects changes we have made in our approach to making music. Ten years makes a difference!

Stripping things down is always risky. Layering helps hide flaws. Take away those tracks and suddenly you're naked! It's that rawness that makes this boogie zing. As it should.

Nice composition on that third verse - it's a superb summation!

Bit late, Mike. Sorry. Boogie blues is back in town! Great barroom vibe. I wasn't around at MJ in 2007 so this is a first time visit for me. Fine song. Fine post. Thanks.
