Another new feature that is being added to the blog that should be fun is a weekly music poll. Have a listen to a couple songs, click a button and you’re done. It will generally feature two songs from recently released cd’s but could pit two classics against each other. So let’s get started.
In this corner, from Southwest Detroit, we have the youngest of ten children, Jack White. With, “Blunderbuss”, his first solo album since the break up of the White Stripes, White is back loud and proud with a great cover of Little Willie John’s “I’m Shakin’.” Listen here.
In the opposite corner, we have Mac Rebbenack, better known as Dr. John. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, John, a legendary boogie and blues pianist with an instantly recognisable growl of a voice, returns with some more of his ‘voodoo’ music on “Locked Down”. Co-written with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach “Big Shot” is the musical entrant in this poll. Listen here.
