More gospel, apropos to the times perhaps..



My back is against the wall more bills than money to pay
but I know just who who to call on when I need relief I pray to help me fight
the pressure, the pressure, the pressure, pressure of the world
The pressure, the pressure, the pressure pressure of the world
The pressure, the pressure, the pressure pressure of the world
Playin' on the tension and your weakness are addictions
that lure your mind You can fight it. You can win
For your deliverance, just bow your head and pray
To help you fight the pressure, the pressure, the pressure
pressure of the world
We all have our burdens to carry
I know when mine get to heavy
He's always there to bear the load
Give me strength and comfort any time I need relief
from the pressures of the world I just believe

It is completely racist to claim that any sound has colour.

Thread bans may follow for those who persist.

Howlin' Wolf would have been 110 today if he was still alive. Of course a massive influence on rock 'n' roll in general, and in particular the rolling stones, and indeed many more.

I have been thinking how the likes if Mick jagged were So Into blues then.
To me that is boring, I much prefer Motown, and songs like midnight train to georgia etc. If I was a young teenager 5he last thing I would be I Interested In would be listening to that, its depressing.
Or was it the attitude that these college boys like Mick jagged were music snobs, oh look how interesting we are,we don t listen to the music you all listen to, we are too good for that, in fact a lot like lefty liberals today.

If you think the blues are depressing or boring ..think again. Appreciation of good music comes from listening obsessively and if you play a bit yourself it comes from trying to do what it is they do. . I love Motown and only through listening obsessively did i discover what i loved..James Jamersons bass playing

Stax produced some classic "black music" with a great band of whities , except for Booker T
