Sister Rosetta Tharpe: "That's All" (Verve)
Hello again everyone. Well, it's been yet another long time between posts and this one's gonna be a bit of a quickie. But I wanted to share with you a little gem by the mighty Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Now, mind you, I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to this dynamo, but when I heard her version of "When The Saints Go Marchin' In," I was hooked. This woman could play a mean guitar and she did it for The Lord! Yow!
She shows off some o'that mean guitar work in this selection, which is over and done in 1:33. That's the way we like 'em around here, short and right to the point. Anyway, she raps a lot about people gotta have religion now. A girlie chorus chants "That's all, that's all at a couple of points to top things off. But that guitar sure be smokin'! Now, if any of you out there are in the know about the Sister's repertorie, I'd definitley appreciate some recommendations. In the meantime, here's "That's All" for your enjoyment and I hope you do.
