Miz J. emailed, tells me she likes gospel, blues and old country, so here we go.

The Dixie Hummingbirds (1928-present) are a gospel rhythm and blues vocal group who influenced many recording artists. Even Paul Simon covered them.

What’s the greatest blues song ever? That’s a tough choice because the blues spans so many decades. I’m gonna go with this.

T-Bone Walker recorded “Stormy Monday” in 1947, but The Allman Brothers Band did a great cover 33 years later. I’ve always loved that chord turnaround.

(And THIS is one of the prettiest songs they ever recorded.)

Gospel – Check.
Blues – Check.
That leaves “old country.” Well, it’s not that old, but it counts.

Have a great weekend, folks. More stuff tomorrow.
