terryfreedman I think I like this better than the whitesnake version: more feeling somehow
terryfreedman Traditional folk song, with a modern touch. Must find out: was this a true story?
terryfreedman totally fantastic version. Two guitar masters playing off -- and against! -- each other.
terryfreedman If the Royal Ballet Company used THIS version I'd go all the time...

terryfreedman @djdancingdiva. "Gr8 cover on this song does not diminish the greatness of Dylan's gravelly original. Gotta love Bonnie." Agree! Never heard this. thx (reblip)
terryfreedman Brilliant song, of course, made more so by Guy's guitar work.
djdancingdiva @terryfreedman. Great cover on this song does not diminish the greatness of Dylan's gravelly original. Gotta love Bonnie. (reblip)
terryfreedman If, like me, you can't stand all the shmaltzy Xmas pop songs, here's the answer. Deliciously disgusting lyrics, and a damn good beat! (reblip)
theok @terryfreedman @eyebeams more murder and crossdressing in this old song

terryfreedman good, gritty stuf. Featured in Our Frieds in the North -- very apt.
terryfreedman good piano: a bit like ramsey lewis
terryfreedman James Brown in his usual inexhaustible style, singing a song with deep and meaningful lyrics....

terryfreedman I didn't even know Al Green had recorded this until it came up by chance in Last.Fm. Much better than The Temptations' version IMHO
terryfreedman Classic Muddy Waters. Raw, powerful, great riff, great lyrics, great participation. It doesn't get much better than this. Turn up the volume 2 the max
terryfreedman Not really a blues song in the usual sense, but the guitar work more than compensates. Don't listen if you just broke up with someone.
terryfreedman A good pop-jazz interpretation of the Gospel classic. Reissued in the UK several times, it first came to my attention in 1971. Still sounds as fresh.
terryfreedman Great funky interpretation of the old adage 'God helps those who help themselves'. Flute, horns and organ combine to produce this get-up-and-dance no.

terryfreedman Forget the original 'Sound of Music' version. This is how it was always supposed to sound! Listen beyond Coltrane's sax, to the piano and bass. Brill!
terryfreedman extensive track which gives room for flute, guitar and vibes solos. Features the fabulous Sonny Sharock on guitar.
terryfreedman very nice interpretation of the steely dan classic
terryfreedman Ya can't argue with these words: Gotta have the funk!
terryfreedman first heard this when trying to pluck up courage to do something. It did the trick!
terryfreedman Everything about this song of unrequited love is brilliant. But all is summed up in "and when she passes he smiles, but she doesn't see." Tragic.
terryfreedman Probably not pc, but who can take issue with a song which contains the line "I can make a dress out of a feed bag and I can make a man out of you."?
terryfreedman I always thought Simone had the most expressive voice, like it contained the angst of a nation. Even unaccompanied, she was moving. (reblip)

terryfreedman I think this refrain could just about sum up the 70s and 80s. How retro!

terryfreedman As soon as I heard this, back in 1978 or thereabouts, I knew it would be a massive hit, which it was. Great beat, great lyrics and great delivery!

terryfreedman This was Williamson's response to "Green Onions". Amazing harp playing: he could make it talk, or cry. Self-taught, of course.
terryfreedman Great exemplification of the jazzy influences on pop music in the 80s. Wonderful voice, soaring - and searing - sax.

terryfreedman You see, Beethoven was good up to a point, but you can actually dance to this version....
terryfreedman Definitely an improvement on the original, which is short, heavy and boring. Yes, I'm a philistine, I know...
terryfreedman Always wondered what TKO stood for. Total Knock Out perhaps? Always loved this, great for slow dances too if romance was in the air! (reblip)
