One of Phillip’s Favourite Songs (Percy Mayfield)

Whenever this song pops up in the mix, no matter what mood I’m in, it gets me in a groove. The vocals by Percy Mayfield are soulful and evil. The rhythm of the band playing back and forth is sublime. The arrangement is full of blues but something else I can’t pin down. The song is called “Nothing Stays the Same Forever.” I got it off a compilation years ago called “Atlantic Blues: Vocalists.”

And the video for the song is just dandy (the song begins around the 11-second mark.)
