Today, we've teamed up with master blues guitarist Sue Foley to premiere the music video for "Jimmie Lee," a tribute to Foley's guitar idol, Jimmie Vaughan.
"Jimmie Lee"—which is taken from the Deluxe Edition of Foley's latest album, The Ice Queen—is the guitarist's modern-day spin on Robert Nighthhawk’s “Anna Lee.” It came to be after Foley sang it one night while sitting in with Vaughan at one of his shows. The two then recorded the song during the sessions for The Ice Queen. The song's video—which you can check out for yourself above—was filmed on the very stage where they first performed it live, at C-Boy’s Heart & Soul in Austin, Texas.
Foley—who writes the Guitar Player column, "The Foley Files"—is scheduled to play a special New York City showcase at the Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 3 on Wednesday, October 17. Very limited tickets for the show are available right here.
The Deluxe Edition of Foley's new album, The Ice Queen, was released September 28, and features three tracks that weren't on the original LP. In addition to "Jimmie Lee," The Ice Queen Deluxe Edition includes "Pony Kick"—which features Double Trouble's Chris "Whipper" Layton on drums—and "The Dance (Duo Version)," which includes JJ Johnson of the Tedeschi Trucks Band on percussion.
