    Albert King's live version of Stormy Monday. Damn!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=eUaKc3vtX08


    There are songs that an artist makes his/her own. Then there are covers that sometimes exceed the original.

    Albert King was the originator of record of this tune. It is an especially emotional, gut-grabbing blues song, but that may be a bit of hyperbole since blues is all about emotional, "making you feel"' music. These covers pay tribute to the original, as they should, but add a flavor all their own.

    Albert King would like each of them, I'm sure.

    Big Head Todd and The Monsters (3/29/17 I listen to this regularly. More than five years later this is one of the best versions I have ever heard.)

    Karen Carroll's great version used to be here but was made "private." Bummer.

    As most know, there are many traveling "bar bands" that have exceptional talent. Here's one that does this tune with the emotion and intensity it deserves.

    The David Gerald Band

    In response to many requests for another Karen Carroll tune I offer the following masterpiece.

    Stormy Monday (posted on Monday otherwise I would be irresponsible).

    Research was necessary here. I am essentially confident that this is not as listed (Nortons play very different music) but...

    Susan Tedeschi, who is a major blues/rock artist. Her husband, Derek Trucks, is also a well-known blues guitarist, formerly with the Allman Brothers band (and others.) They now perform as the Tedeschi Trucks band.

    Married To The Blues

    And, this is what they're up to now.

    And this...at Royal Albert Hall no less! (this is more than impressive, it's stunning, and another example why I consider blues some of the best music there is.)

    Tedeschi Trucks Band

    The Sky Is Crying

    This is so mellow, so smooth, and oh so sweet.
