Song of The Day: Cow Cow Davenport – Cow Cow Blues (1928)

On Cow Cow’s birthday, here’s his most famous song, a rollicking boogie woogie that became the basis for Ray Charles, Mess Around, many years later.

And just in case you needed the similarities between Cow Cow Blues and Mess Around more defined, dig on Jan August’s rocking take from 1953, the same year Charles released Mess Around

Mess Around was written by Atlantic Records President, Ahmet Ertegün
