Song of the Week: Scratch My Back

Continuing with the blues theme, this week's song comes from Texas based blues band The Fabulous Thunderbirds.  From the band's founding in 1974 until around 1990, their lead guitarist was Jimmie Vaughan; older brother of Stevie Ray Vaughan and a fantastic guitarist in his own right.  It was during his tenure that the band had their biggest hit:  1986's Tuff Enough.

From a 1985 concert in London, here's The Thunderbirds with Jimmie on guitar and Kim Wilson on vocals/harmonica with Slim Harpo's "Scratch My Back".
