Regarding Texas Flood: Willie Nelson did a cover featuring Kenny Wayne Sheppard on the album Milk Cow Blues. Also, I've heard Buddy Guy cover it, but I'm not sure if he's ever recorded it. I'll google and get back to you :)

Peaches, I was just thinking last night about songs that made Top Ten #3 but weren't in the Songfacts data. Sorry I didn't mention it.

You might have a few more this time ! As bazooka said, a real "mixed bag". None of our previous Top Tens have been as wide open as this.

Still To Vote:

Earth-Angel

The version of this song, and every other song, on the "Live At El Mocambo" DVD is astounding. I think this concert is the greatest guitar performance I've ever seen.

Another great SRV concert is the 11 minute

Little Wing / Third Stone From The Sun from the CBS Records convention '84 Honolulu off the SRV box set.

Thanks Angel and Kevin. Looks like just me and Marc M (+ any other regulars who haven't) to vote yet.

I know too many of them to fit into my Ten. I even downloaded Gnarls Barkley's Crazy; it's very good. Might have to make it a 'Top 14' like Peaches said. I'm just joking !

Sorry Angel - it wasn't meant to be like that. :doh:

Kevin tells me I "over-organise". He tries to keep me in check, but it's my O.C.D. personality.

:help:

P.S. If you want to unburden yourself about whatever happened behind the bike shed, I'm a good listener.

:laughing:

Hi CeeCee. Happy Easter to you and yours Sweetie. I think RonJon was advocating that Carl obtain the rights to the songs we choose and issue Double CDs. Might be a bit costly, but there's sure some variety in our Tens so far. CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE.

I'm glad my favorite ever R & B song made it into the Ten. Jackie Wilson was the Man.
