The December 2012 issue of @MOJOmagazine matches its Led Zeppelin cover feature with a freebie disc titled "Let's Move," named for a Lightnin' Hopkins track; the covermount purports to document "heavy blues"—and it succeeds. One of the stronger recent giveaways, Let's Move surveys an impressive spectrum: heavyweights like Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, and Muddy Waters are joined by regional and indie favorites ranging from Magic Sam, Junior Wells, and R. L. Burnside. Burnside and Magic Sam came close to getting picked for this post, but Chicago-cum-Mississippi motorvator Hound Dog Taylor wins the prize because this tune comes from the only blues album I've searched for over the course of years before nailing down a copy (Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers, Alligator Records, 1971). You can buy anything online, but finding in the wild is the best! This hyper-rocking cut outpaces everything else on the disc. Taylor released two albums before his death in 1975, aged 60.   5
