Never heard of them. Interesting sound. Good song.
...while I'm thinking about the blues, I gotta throw Ella Fitzgerald's version of "Cry Me a River" up here. It's about cheating in a relationship, but from the point of the cheatee.
It's an expertly written and executed number; there are PLENTY of blues tunes about heartbreak, but any that get off the ground so eloquently and don't follow the standard minor pentatonic, 12 bar, 1-4-5 progressions is a gem in my book. They really point out that the true heart of the blues isn't in that boilerplate compositional format that gave birth to rock. It's not that there's anything wrong with that format, but in my opinion, the most important blues instrument is the human ear.
Justin Timberlake wiped his herpetic balls all over this beautiful song. I consider it a violation of the Geneva Convention, and a crime against humanity.
Fidd, I agree. The most important instrument any of us have is our ear, which leads directly to our brain. Music that moves me is the closest I come to a religious experience. I cherish that. Jesus can't move me, but music sure does.
Amen to that, Brother!

John Prine. Glorious. Always wondered why he was never more famous. Oh well. I've always enjoyed him. Forgot about this song. Thanks Edward.
