Jerry “Boogie” McCain passed away on March 28.  He was 81.  He was best known for his harmonica.  Most active in the 50’s and 60’s, he was still recording well into the 1990’s.  Jerry recorded with some greats, including Johnnie Johnson and Jimmy Vaughn.  Here is some music.  You will recognize some of the styling as representative of early rock and roll.
