One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded: “The Moon Is Full” by John Mayall with Larry McCray!!!

For as long as I’ve been on the radio, and definitely for as long as I’ve been writing a blog, I will occasionally make a reference to a song being “One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded!” (GSER)

I would usually follow that by saying that I would eventually start a category for it, but then never get around to it.

Well, now I’m getting around to it!

It will pretty much follow the pattern of The Most Awesomest Song of the Day.

I’ll select a song to celebrate and then give my thoughts about it. Nothing really brand new here that hasn’t been done before. But since I have a website, I can collect them and lay out what my own greatest songs are.

My radio show, “Theme Attic,”  is on Wednesdays 2PM-4PM ET.

Even though I always emphasize new music and artists, it’s always fun to take a short drive through the legendary artists, since they influenced those other artists!

But a song doesn’t have to be old or done by a legendary Theme Attic Hall of Fame member to be thus honored.

I can think of several songs that are only a few years old or less that I could identify as One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded.

This will be fun, and hopefully you will join me on my journey…at least sometimes!


Another moon has passed, so it’s time to celebrate this month’s Super Pink Moon!

Today’s selection is another Blues Moon Tune, “The Moon Is Full” by the legendary British blueser, John Mayall  brilliantly assisted by Saginaw, Michigan’s own Larry McCray!

It’s from John‘s most recent album, “Nobody Told Me,” an album jammed full with blistering songs and a roster of guests that keep the energy level always stoked!

On “The Moon Is Full,” McCray‘s stinging guitar riffs complement Mayall‘s smooth sounding keyboards and strong vocal!

It’s the way blues should sound and feel!
