Arkie Shibley - Hot Rod Race (1950)
This was the first popular song about hot rods and was a major influence on the later hit "Hot Rod Lincoln" by Charlie Ryan.

Arkie Shibley

Ann Cole - Got My Mojo Working (1956)
This is the original version of this song covered and made famous by Muddy Waters.

Gloria Jones - Tainted Love (1964)
This original version of this classic song has been covered by countless others.

Martha & The Vandellas - Dancing In The Street (1965 Color)
This truncated version of their song was performed on the old Ed Sullivan Show.  Martha Reeves still looks sexy to me in that long dress.  Here's the full version of the song.

Super Eagles - Love's a Real Thing (1960s Gambia)
Psychedelic music from Gambia.  How interesting.

This is a reggae disco cover of Anita Ward's hit song.  I couldn't find any info on the Blood Sisters though.

The Mississippi Sheiks - Sitting On Top Of The World
In addition to this original version by the Sheiks, I also like this version by Doc Watson.

Hank Williams - Lost Highway
This song was written by Leon Payne, who also curiously wrote the song "Psycho" below.

Hank Williams

Fats Navarro - The Things We Did Last Summer
Here's the original 1946 version by Jo Stafford.

Eddie Noack - Psycho
This has got to be the weirdest C&W song of all times.

Eddie Noack

Ruby Ann - Train To Satanville
I think the original song was by Gin Gillette in the 1950s(?), but I like the quality of updated version by Ruby Ann better.

Ruby Ann

Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 - Rise
I think Seun is the rightful heir to his father's legacy.  Also, I think this song is also produced by the master Brian Eno.

Dora Maar
I went to the Picasso Exhibit yesterday in San Francisco, and I really wasn't overly familiar Picasso's large body of work. Also, I didn't want to read any reviews before I went.  The painting that was my favorite (and it was hard to choose) was the Portrait of Dora Maar Seated 1937 (below).  Dora Maar was muse for Picasso and also a photographer and poet.  Here's a link to some of her photographs, photographs of her by Man Ray and also selected portraits of Dora Maar by Picasso.

If you get a chance to see this great exhibit, I highly recommend it.  There are more Picasso images here and here.

Dora Maar Seated (1937)

Here's another wonderful portrait of Dora Maar from 1937, which wasn't in the exhibit.

Man Ray
Isn't this a great photograph by Man Ray?
