Good stuff, old buddy.

Don't know if you saw this yet: Guitar Shorty dies at 87.

We're running out of the old timers, the youngunz need to pick up the slack.

New to me. Similar to the tones of a young Bonnie Raitt and
a cleaner version of Susan Tedeschi with some of the energy of
Marcia Bell

@QMS

you've probably heard her before, but didn't know it. she has guested on a lot of albums over the years, including a couple of tracks on rod stewart's "every picture tells a story" and the who's symphonic version of "tommy." she was also in the lesser-known rock band stone the crows.

have a great weekend!

@joe shikspack Such a different and original take. But she pulls it off and it works, at least for me.
And...if you cover a Prine song and fuck it up? Yeah, that's not OK.
Kind of channeling John Prine and a low key Janis Joplin. Good stuff. Thanks...

js. Your selections got me through the washing of the windows task I set for myself.
Good stuff!
Next up, I want to catch up on last weekends offerings. I've gone through the John Mayall (sp.?) so am on my way. (More windows to go with the rest)
