Aretha! Do Right Woman

I had a cassette of Aretha Franklin songs  I literally wore out. This was rewound a lot.

She inspired millions. That’s a legacy. Rest in Peace.

Oh, and fuck pancreatic cancer. 



Walela: Hummingbird

I heard a song this morning and said, “wow that sounds like Walela” a CD I practically wore out in the late 90s. The DJ came on and said that it was indeed from that CD. It prompted me to dig it out of the box by my bed and pop it in the CD player. I’ll probably transfer it to my flash drive for the car.

I love this whole album, but it wasn’t until I went looking for a video from it that I ran across this:

Walela, the Cherokee language word for Hummingbird and the symbol of inspiration for this harmonious family of women singers. Rita Coolidge, Laura Satterfield, Priscilla Coolidge, 12 of the most beautiful and melodic songs created by Walela

Makes me like it even more. Enjoy. If you can track it down, it’s worth a listen to the whole thing.
