Jeff Floyd ‘s 2001 “I found love on a lonely highway “ is a classic. If a Daptone label act covered it, NPR would be all over it.

three weeks pass...

When I was in Houston a little while back, I ran into writer Joe Nick Patoski at a zydeco and Cajun show at a park. He told me he was going to southern soul bar the Silver Slipper. He didn't mention they had live music, just the jukebox. I didn't go. I should have.

That "Honey Hole" song (mentioned above) is so nicely delivered. More songs I like -- J Red's (If your man won't love you) I will",

I forget who sings the following great ones--- "Draggin that Wagon," "Your Man is Cheatin' on Us," and "Roll it , Roll it"

The lyrical themes may be formulaic but there's some great tunes still being created in this genre.

I missed the Lamont's club anniversary event that included Big G from Richmond, VA. He's a skilled instrumentalist and singer with southern and old-school style r'n'b songs

does anyone know the story of these 'Jody' songs Johnny Taylor and Bobbie Newsome did on Stax and assorted in the early 70s?
