Bring It On Home To Me

If I had to pick my favorite record, it'd have to be "Live At Harlem Square" with Sam Cooke. (I know I've said this before, but hey, I'm an old guy…) This is the raw Sam, without the violins, in 1963,in front of a mostly black audience in the Overtown neighborhood in Miami. This morning I went into Grooveshark and did a search for the song and found such a wealth of good versions. Otis Redding and Carla Thomas from their great "King and Queen" collaboration, Wilson Pickett, Rod Stewart, the Animals (yes!), James Cotton, Aretha…

I think there could be great programs on the radio of different musicians doing a great song. (I don't say "covers" because these are all like original interpretations.)

Lloyd,
I think you might enjoy Randy Bachman's program on CBC radio 'Vinyl Tap'
