Subject: Happy Blues
Hi there,

everbody knows that the original blues describes a state of depression or melancholy aso. But I learned that at least there's one so-called happy blues, which is a rarity. I do refer to the "Blues of Happiness" by Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry, which is a nice track, recorded in the 50' or 60'.
Is anybody aware of a similar 'Happy Blues'?

Thanks, Manfred
