Billie Holiday - Comes Love a Jazz classic

Don’t try hiding, cause there isn’t any use
You start sliding when you’re heart turns on the juice
Comes a headache, you can lose it in a day
Comes a toothache, see your dentist right away
Comes love, nothing can be done

Wow! Wow! and Wow!

Ben Waters - Boogie Woogie

"Boogie woogie is alive and well! Ben Waters – who incidentally is PJ Harvey’s cousin - has got the touch and the feel for it. Half of the secret of boogie woogie is knowing the tempo at which to play and not making things too fast, and Ben really understands that. I saw him years ago and I thought he was great so ended up playing with him

Flat Foot Floogie (with a Floy Floy)

"Flat Foot Floogie (With a Floy Floy)" was a 1938 jazz song, originally written and performed by Slim Gaillard.

The original song was called "Flat Foot Floozie", with the 'floy-floy' being slang for a venereal disease. The word 'floozie' was changed into 'floogie' to allow it be to played on the radio.
The title for the 1938 The Three Stooges movie, Flat Foot Stooges, is a pun on this song's title.

Oh, the flat foot floogie with a floy, floy,
Flat foot floogie with a floy, floy,
Flat foot floogie with a floy, floy,
Floy doy, floy doy, floy doy.

Frogwings - Allman Brothers project


When Duane Allman saw people sitting around regretting some aspect of their lives, saying, "if only I'd done this," or "if only I hadn't done that," he'd look 'em in the eye and say, "Yeah, and if a frog had wings he wouldn't bust his ass every time he jumped. Get over it."

My Girl's Pussy - Harry Roy


There's one pet I like to pet, and every evening we get set.
I stroke it every chance I get, it's my girl's pussy.
Seldom plays and never purrs, and I love the thoughts it stirs.
But I don't mind because it's hers, it's my girl's pussy.
Often it goes out at night, returns at break of dawn.....

Hook, Line & Sinker - Roomful of Blues

official site

Hook, Line & Sinker features twelve carefully chosen songs from Little Richard, Dave Bartholomew, Amos Milburn, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Floyd Dixon and others. Produced by Chris Vachon, the CD is a ferocious and enthusiastic blast of rocking guitars, punching horns and huge, room-filling vocals. The results are a non-stop hip-shaking party. It’s clear why People magazine said Roomful’s music “can turn a dull evening at home into a heel-clicking night of fun.

a highly recommended band - been around for over 43 years!
