Give Me the Banjo: Taj Mahal Performs Slow Drag

  • Aired: 10/31/2011

  • Rating: NR
Taj told us about the old country juke joints: "A lot of places musicians would play all night long, and basically play the popular airs and tunes and so forth. But toward the end of the night, the fellows know they want to take the girls home. So this is like one of them tunes that they used to play at the end of the night."
