    I realize this thread may not be visited by many others, but I felt compelled to start it on the 50th anniversary of John Coltrane's death.... he passed away on July 17th, 1967.

    If you visit the website on Youtube there is a listing of the Top 100 Best Blues songs (not my list), as well as the music video.

    Etta James is Number 1.

    Yeah, that's the over-played classic. Great tune, but SO overdone. THIS one (same chord structure) is much lesser known and , in my opinion, better....



    I used to sing that... and sometimes this one:



    I've been an Etta James fan for a LONG time, have the collected works, read the biography.... Continue to R.I.P., Jamesetta.... :rose:

    Can't go make food until I post some killer Re.... she & Etta were contemporaries... in the bio Etta called Aretha Re....

    This is off an excellent album... I got it on CD in a discount bin for $5. It was worth far more. I used to do this song, loved it....




    You may notice a pattern.... I tend (and tended) to go with lesser-known songs. Hell, somebody's gotta let folks know about the NON-radio sh*t! :cool:

    And since I'm listening to this right now in the kitchen, I'll share. Some truly funky Stevie Wonder!! Even the background vocals are Stevie.... I think, if I had to choose an overall fave, he's it. This is Stevie doin' dirty funk.... (please don't post Superstition, I'm not kidding, LOL :p)




    Ooop, and now it's this. I've got my phone on the "Funk Off" playlist.... :dance:

    Just trying to make a mental list here.... I have collected work from certain favorite artists, most on CD, not on my phone... need to search for them.

    Collections of:
    • Robert Johnson
    • Bessie Smith
    • Benny Goodman
    • B.B. King
    • Ella Fitzgerald
    • Dinah Washington
    • Etta James
    • Billie Holiday
    • Aretha Franklin
    • Stevie Wonder
    • Jimi Hendrix
    • Janis Joplin
    • Eric Clapton
    • Stevie Ray Vaughn
    • Bela Fleck (and the Flecktones)
    • Django Reinhardt (with Stephan Grappelli)
    • Got a mix of stuff with Duke Ellington, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Chet Baker, Dexter Gordon, et al....
    • Another one with all blues legends....
    ---- This is a running list for me to refer to so I can search for my missing music... in boxes, bags, the back room, the garage, etc....

    This song was on the Top 100 Blues list. But I don't think it is a blues song. At any rate it is a great song, so I'm gonna include it here. Also, the video that was supposed to go with the blues list was unavailable, so I found another video.
