I always like to hear a classic song played by master guitarist Django
Memphis Minnie - If you See my Rooster (Please Run Him Home)
I don't think Memphis Minnie gets enough credit for her Blues guitar
playing, song writing and performing talents.
Art Tatum -
Jitterbug Waltz (1955)
The great piano player Art Tatum covers the Jitterbug Waltz.

This song covered by many groups including The Specials and Amy Winehouse
was written as
a jab at their producer Leslie Kong.
Toots & the Maytals
Skatalites - Simmer Down
More great ska. This was the first
single released by the Wailers and accompanied by the Skatalites.
It was also Bob Marley's first hit as a songwriter.
The Mothers of
Invention - Big Leg Emma
This hilarious song was on
one side of the
last 45 that I ever bought. On the other side was "Why Don't
You Do Me Right". Both songs are now included on the
Absolutely Free CD.
