really like the last three . isn't there a later version of the devil made me do it on curtom? by rasputin stash? or is it a different track?
Hi Jy - thanks for the lovely comments and the FB "promo"! I came across the Big Mama Thornton version of WITW when I was researching how many people had recorded a version. It was written by some members of a spiritual choir from Fisk University around the turn of the century so I'm guessing they were the first to sing and record it! Hope you had a great Sat night of dancing :)
just posted it to my facebook page, lot more of my mates will love it !!
Love it Gail, proper good tunes ! Got me spinning around my kitchen ready for the 'For Dancers Only' night in Torquay on Saturday. Got a few versions of 'wade', but a very long time since i last heard the Big Mama Thorton version etc, who recorded the 'original' ?, heard you say 'the gospel' track, but who was first to record/release it, love to pick your brains Gail,-(no pressure !!) 'Keep it up & Keep The Torch Burning Bright !!'
Thanks MrSmall! Yep, I agree about Joshie-Jo - what a talent :)
Excellent selection ! love that Jo Armstead....Greetz !
