Cause we've got Reggae, Funk, Jazz and Oz Rock threads so why not?

This is still quite disturbing, definitely not a fun party song like Pat Travers or George Thorogood say. Blues was all about writing about their own experience and keeping it real.

There's probably a correlation between old age and appreciation of Billie Holiday... only singer who can make me cry. Damn she could sing the phone book and make me cry.

Browsing RYM album charts (all genres) for 1965 at the moment. Liking this find:

My discovery for today is Barbara Dane's album On My Way. A bit of a mixed bag of genres, but there's some bluesy stuff on it:

I have no idea what a wang dang doodle is, but it sounds very rude indeed.
