Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Something old:

Johnny Cash- 'San Quentin' (Live from Prison). I am not sure where this is recorded.. He did do shows at San Quentin and Folsom Prison.. and probably other places as well. Regardless of where this was done, this is great!.. (umm... on watching this a few times more.. the sign in the background 'San Quentin' is probably a clue as to where this was recorded !!)

Something New:

Charles Bradley - The World (Is Going Up In Flames) - Feat. Menahan Street Band

I stumbled across this tune recently.. it sounds 40 years old and isn't. If you like your music soulful and funky this is it!

Something Borrowed:

Electrelane- "I'm On Fire"
This is a cover of the boss's own tune.. yeah -Bruce Springteens, but done by four women who ROCK!! This may not be to everyone's liking, but respect given to where it's, how can you not love women who ROCK ?.

Something Blue:

The Moody Blues- 'Go Now'
Even though they stole this from Bessie Banks, I don’t think I’ll ever stop loving this song or this version of it!!

Just to show you how much of the arrangement they stole from Bessie as well, here is her version.. which is absolutely brilliant, but shame about the quality of the recording (it was all I could find)
