Happy Birthday, Redjeep!
Slim Harpo - Shake Your Hips (1966)
The Rolling Stones covered this one on Exile On Main Street. When they weren’t stealing from the best, they were legally covering the best.

It’s Bad You Know by R.L.Burnside
She asked me, “Why?”
I just went on and told her.

Bob Dylan - Early Roman Kings
from the new album Tempest
Apparently this is the worst track on what is meant to be his “best album in a decade”. Come on September 10th!
Summoning Muddy Waters, Uncle Bob then cloaks himself in an evil persona to sing this number. This “unreliable narrator” is just the voice needed to tell us fearful truths. (And this is the “worst” track? […] The album must kick serious ass!)
Jeff Beck/Imogen Heap ~ Rolling and Tumbling

Nina Simone - Born under a bad sign - Paris Olympia 1968 4/16 (by dtolbiac)

Derek Trucks ~ Sahib Teri Badi
“For night is the mechanism by which mere mind is converted into mere sexuality, mere sexuality into mere mind, and where these two abstractions hostile to life find rest in recognizing each other”
- Walter Benjamin
Walter Benjamin is deeper than I am. What he said left me scratching my head. Perhaps some of y’all can help me understand old Walter.
But even though I’m kinda slow, my ears still work. That’s why I completely understand Derek Trucks and his band. In the geography of Derek’s heart the Ganges River empties into the Mississippi delta. He brought me to the banks of his river to show me the sunset. I’m braver for having seen it.
