Jackie Wilson - This Bitter Earth

Another great interpretation of the classic we know I'm such a huge fan of Mr. Wilson's work and for our amigo Tereza Bell-Tzannatou

Irma Thomas - This Bitter Earth

Yes, I know Aretha did this tune first but...last night we went to see Irma and she was soul stirringly awesome! At 70 she was in fine voice and great humor then when leaving the stage after going strong and taking requests from us her audience and fans, she winced dramatically as she made her stage exit. You'd have never known from her performance --- she truly shone as bright as any diamond star and her title Queen of New Orleans Show as never more apt and fitting. Thank you Irma for bring your soul and your heart to us on a very blue Sunday in London town.
