Joe Eddie’s new single, “Under The Pressure”, a cover of the smash hit by alt rock band The War On Drugs, is out now!
This song was suggested by our drummer, Kevin Grinde, who’s been grooving to the drum stylings of Drugs drummer Charlie Hall. Kevin and Steve Benson, our organist and producer, cooked up a bed for me to lay down the mandolin and vocals. The mando was Steve’s idea, and I think it’s a good one! I play the mandolin a little bit, and it’s fun to bring it in with the band on a modern rock and roll song.
And hey, how about that art work?! The cover art for this number is created by my friend and fellow artist Steve Smith, better known as the rock doctor! I dig Steve’s dirty collage style, and I think this image really captures the emotion and the tension of the song.

A music video for my quick 2-minute cover version of “All Right Now”, the 1970 hit by English band Free
Joe Eddie warming up in the studio with drummer Chaos Dixon @kgcitori to the tune “Baby, Please Don’t Go”
I thought the guitar sounded nice and it was fun to open up the voice and try to keep rhythm in a very loose way ..
“Baby, Please Don’t Go” is a traditional blues song that was popularized by Delta blues musician Big Joe Williams in 1935. Many cover versions followed, leading to its description as “one of the most played, arranged, and rearranged pieces in blues history” by French music historian Gérard Herzhaft.
After World War II, Chicago blues and rhythm and blues artists adapted the song to newer music styles. In 1952, a doo-wop version by the Orioles reached the top ten on the R&B chart. In 1953, Muddy Waters recorded the song as an electric Chicago-ensemble blues piece, which influenced many subsequent renditions. By the early 1950s, the song became a blues standard.
In the 1960s, “Baby, Please Don’t Go” became a popular rock song after the Northern Irish group Them recorded it in 1964. Jimmy Page, a studio guitarist at the time, participated in the recording session, possibly on rhythm guitar. Subsequently, Them’s uptempo rock arrangement also made it a rock standard. AC/DC and Aerosmith are among the rock groups who have recorded the song. “Baby, Please Don’t Go” has been inducted into both the Blues and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame. [source: wikipedia]
