Speaks his mind on music & movies!
Yup that’s right. Tom Jones and he kills it with just a killer take on the John Lee Hooker tune. Guitar, drums and vocals that’s it. A stripped down piece of great music. Amazing when the material and inspiration come together. Magic!
Tom is getting lots of help and he feeds off of it. CB gets goose bumps listening to this. Ethan Johns (I think) guitar is awesome. His riff opens it up and sets the tone. Jeremy Stacey keeps it real simple on the skins. Johns locks into a riff , then cuts loose while Jones is feeling it and gives the pipes a work out. Man what a great sound.
CB has heard some great Hooker covers, this is up there with the best. It is so cool when a guy like Jones cuts loose and puts his talent and voice to something like this. Good work Tommy boy. You might have a future in the biz. This is great music no matter which way you slice it. Sung and played by guys that are feeling the John Lee vibe. Babyhead thinks so anyways.
“I’m going down to the crossroads with no devil will I make a deal….maybe there ain’t no heaven..no burning hell…”
(Lots of great versions of Tom and the boys doing this song floating around. This cut comes off the album ‘Praise and Blame’. Below is live from Letterman. It’s good)
