Jimmy Reed – I Wanna Be Loved (1959)

October 9, 2019 – Day 131

Jimmy Reed was covered by all of the big bands in 60s. He had a string of popular songs from 1955 into the early 1960s and although his songs stopped landing on the charts as Beatlemania rolled across the world, his songs lived on. “I Wanna Be Loved” is an easy moving blues number with a great harmonica part – a call an answer with a guitar lick that really bounces. Reed’s voice is inimitable, a very honest, come as you are approach to the blues. “I want to be loved, but by only you / Because I never had a love as true”
