Sonny Burges with the Blasters

The following two videos show Sonny Burgess performing two of his signature songs with the Blasters. They're great, good sound and good quality.

Sonny Burgess performs "Sadie's Back in Town", a song he recorded with the Pacers in the late 1950s for Sun. The wild energy of this version is awesome, IMO just as good as the original version!

"Red Headed Woman" was the flip to Burgess' first single "We Wanna Boogie" in 1956 for Sun. Hear Sonny's abilities on the guitar, they're still fantastic.
