Martha & The Vandellas “No More Tearstained Makeup”
from Finders Keepers: Motown Girls 1961-1967 (Ace 2013) N —1966 recording written and produced by Smokey Robinson. The lead vocal by Martha Reeves and the bass line by James Jamerson are so great -- no other way to put it. This should have been a hit of epic proportions.
Aretha Franklin “Bridge Over Troubled Water (Live at Fillmore West, San Francisco, March 7, 1971)”
from Aretha Franklin: Live at Fillmore West (Atlantic unk 1971) —Live 1971 incredibly soulful take on the Simon and Garfunkel classic with backing by King Curtis, The Memphis Horns, Billy Preston, among others.

from We Juke Up in Here!: Mississippi's Juke Joint Culture at the Crossroads (Broke & Hungry Records www.brokeandhungryrecords.com 2012) —Live 2011 recording found on this soundtrack for a movie which focuses on the once-thriving juke joint culture in the Mississippi Delta. This country blues song was written by Louis "Gearshifter" Youngblood. I love this track.
