Thought Of The Day – 5/23/13

So what can a blues legend do with a legendary trucker song?  He can turn it into a funked up rocker that sounds just as slick today as it did upon its release 45 years ago.

Everyone’s got a favorite artist and when it comes to the blues, I’m a Taj Mahal man.  Not the building, the man.  And if you’ve never heard the work of the man named Taj Mahal, check out his pulse-quickening version of “Six Days On The Road.”  Everything about it — from the guitars to the vocal delivery — is dead-on perfect.

If you think you know the song without ever hearing this version… you don’t know the song.

 

“Got my air hose runnin’ clear, baby, you ought to watch the way I shift my gears.”

Thought Of The Day – 11/8/12

Good Thursday.  If you’re reading this from the Northeast, once again we’re thinking of you.  Take care, be safe.

SEC News and views are coming soon, but first, here’s your morning inspiration by way of the great Taj Mahal (doing a great bluesy cover of a great, classic song by the forever great Otis Redding).  And if you haven’t figure it out by now, yes, my iPod is 90% blues.

 

“I’ll be the breeze after the storm is gone… to dry your eyes and love you warm.”

 

Taj Mahal- That's how strong my love is
