Even well-written TV shows like True Blood have their faltering moments. Quite a creative episode yesterday, particularly the way it draws you in by disgust. I bring up the show because it reminded me that I can always do a post about music. Anyone recognize the old blues tune playing in the bar towards the end? It’s a variant of one of the covers below. Each of these songs come from soul or blues artists (or gospel, whatever you want to call it) – recordings I was introduced to at an early age. Tunes like these never lose their potency. The music gets passed on from generation to generation, one cover after another, and rarely do people know about the originals.
