Dust This!

There are dozens of outstanding recordings of the classic blues song, 'Dust My Broom'. The best known examples are by Robert Johnson and Elmore James. Those original recordings are, of course, classics, but by no means the best. For me, it doesn't get any better than these three recordings. They are exceptional in every way.
