Doesn't matter if it was released in the 1950s or 2012—I'm a sucker for these kinds of songs.
blues + soul will never be uncool.
I'm feeling a little late on this one. This is one of those bands that I kept hearing about, but never took the time to listen to—until now. And wow. Why didn't somebody tell me that I would LOVE this album? Bluesy. Soulful. Fun. Powerful female vocals. I really enjoyed every track. I stamp it again and again with my stamp of approval.*
p.s. So the big reason I finally listened to this album is because I'm trying to listen to as many albums on THIS LIST as I can before the year ends. And whaddayaknow? It was #2. What I want to know is if there are albums that need to be added to this list (mostly ones that have been released since June) or that I should skip (cuz yeah, I'm probably not gonna get through half of these). I value your suggestions... if you have them.
*I seriously wish I had a real "stamp of approval"
