steve rubio mentioned dale miller
who made me think of
dave evans (and his sad pig dance
). thinking of dave reminded me of woody mann
, who nudged me directly into rememberances of jo ann kelly, because they all shared a label i worked for when their records came out.
and i realized that i haven't listened to one of the best blues voices ever for a for a very long time, so i found this jo ann kelly tribute site
a few days ago, and, really, just listen to this woman!
