from The Very Best of David Frizzell & Shelly West (Varèse Sarabande Records, Inc. 2009) —This was a #1 C&W hit for Shelly and David in 1981. Felice and Boudleaux Bryant wrote this along with Larry Collins and Sandy Pinkard. Shelly West is daughter of C&W star Dottie West.
Janis Joplin “Black mountain blues”
from Janis (Columbia Legacy 1998) —I'm playing two cuts from a double LP issued by Columbia in 1975. These are pre-Big Brother & the Holding Company, and were only intended as homemade demo tapes. They catch Janis singing the blues before the world knew who she was.
Carolina Chocolate Drops “Ruby, Are You Mad At Your Man?”
from Leaving Eden (Nonesuch Records 2012) N —Rhiannon Giddens is the female vocalist with the Chocolate Drops, and this song, written by Cousin Emmy, is a good showcase for her vocal talent. The Chocolate Drops will appear at the Sheldon in St. Louis on Nov. 16.
