Do you remember any lyrics, Sheila?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/2/17 5:43pm Michael 98145:

Uh - oh ... we have to keep guessing ?
Avatar Fri. 6/2/17 5:44pm djsheilab:

@Cecile I don't remember anything sadly. It's an "I'll know it when I hear it" kinda thing.

this sounds like it's going into "the Sidewinder" any minute.

another choice (in Amsterdam): 24/6 Southside Johnny or 25/6 Little Steven? Listened to Little Steven's Soulfire today and I like the album very much

( i'm liking this track more than i should :)

@Adrian: I missed a free KTL show to listen to Sheila's show. Well, it's also because it's raining and I'm a bit pissed off at my employer these days, the latter is dumb

This week Sgt. Pepper was released 50 years ago. Dutch band The Analogues plays the complete album live. Went to their show a couple of months ago. Never liked the songs on that album that much, but I was blown away by their show. On 9/9 in London!

Sheila pulled the trigger on a double shot of Wing. A fitting end--thank you, Ms. B!

More Wing!! Thanks for another great show, Sheila B!

Adam Sandler wouldn't have to push it far to make a Wing tribute album.

now off to listen to more Wing on youtube. Thanks Sheila!
Avatar Sun. 6/4/17 7:23pm Brian Cat:

Hey Sheila,
I agree Ain't No Use is a masterpiece. I thought it was an obscure BIll Withers clone. Wouldn't change a note.

Re: Wing, There was a woman like that in the 60s, an American named Mrs. Miller on Capitol.
