The Black Keys’ ‘Have Mercy On Me’

Song Of The Day

Song: Have Mercy On Me

Artist: The Black Keys

EP: Chulahoma

The band The Black Keys are some fellow Ohioans, the state that this author holds true to the heart. The band was one of OurVinyl’s favorite records of last year, but this song is from 2006 when Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney made a small EP of Junior Kimbroughs classics. The EP ends with a phone call from Junior Kimbrough’s widow who is quoted as saying, ”You’re really the only one that sings like Junior used to sing, and I’m very proud.” The track “Have Mercy On Me” is the A side on this EP that was purchased in Phoenix, Arizona many years ago and hangs true to this day.
