Utne Reader is proud to premiere the song "Honey Baby" by blues legend Ironing Board Sam, from his new album Super Spirit.
A consumate showman, blues legend Ironing Board Sam has been entertaining audiences for decades with his mad scientist approach to playing the blues. From musical stunts like his underwater performance at the 1979 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival to the custom made keyboard attached to an ironing board that gave him his name, Sam's music is a treat for the eyes as much as it is for the ears.
His latest album features a collection of songs by other artists for Sam to stamp his indelible mark on, and comes on the heels of a pair of well-received performances at the Newport Folk Festival and New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Here's the premiere of one of those songs, "Honey Baby," from Super Spirit, out October 2 on Big Legal Mess Records:
