In honor of the Sharon Jones show this Friday, I’ve declared this week to be Bold Soul Sister Week on Taproot Radio! I’m featuring music from Sharon Jones, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Bettye LaVette, Candi Staton, Ruby Johnson, Janiva Magness, Ann Sexton, Judy Clay and many more soul tunes in addition to the usual roots rock and twangy songs.
Some more noteworthy adds this week:
– I got in the mood for some deep gospel this week so I included 3 tracks from The Brothers In The Kitchen featuring the Moore Sisters. Rousing soul spirituals from the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina
– Please forgive me, but I could not resist including a song from The Three Dog Night. See if you can spot it!
– Zydeco goodness from The Bluerunners, including a very groovy tune “The Gravedigger”
– Blues from R.L. Burnside and Asie Payton!
