I don’t think Bonnie Bramlett conveys the vulnerability that the original did. This ain’t a song that needs wailing.

Glad you are playing a Blues / Soul based set. If I have any recommendation for the show overall (and really everything is very good) it's that we chould hear more of the very rich tradition of Female Blues / Soul music.

Here's my theory which I've shared before....Mick Jagger stole ALL of his moves from Tina and Rod Stewart stole 50% of his vocal delivery from Tina.

Hi Sheilab, I bought Delaney and Bonnie and Friends album in 1972 and Claudia Leannear Phew in 1973 *
Still a big fan today. They're all so amazingly awesome!! And I saw the Blackberries at Madison Square Garden perform with Humble Pie in1973
I Love Sophisticated Boom Boom !!!

Yo, Sheila. Thanks for breaking down the family tree today. Saw Ike & Tina Turner perform "Proud Mary" at close range at Ravinia (outside Chicago) in '71 or '72. Mind blown. Immediately went home and tried to imitate Tina's inimitable full body shimmy shake:)

It's hard but because of my love for the music, I try to look past the evils of Ike, and appreciate the talent of Tina and the ladies, and even Ike's brilliance. Regardless of the garbage that he was, he also was brilliant. I try to separate a lot, for the love of the music, same applies to Phil Spector.

  4:26pm Rick A:

I liked the documentary though I wish there was a segment on her work in Tommy. I can only imagine the conversations she had with eccentric director Ken Russell and the members of The Who. Incidentally, when I worked at an independent station in California in the 80s, I once spoke to Anna Domino's representative by accident. I answered the station phone and it was her representative. The conversation led me to play her record on my show.
