Yeah, WP's Hey Joe would be something.  Once upon a time, rumor had it that the guys had worked on it.  One night when JJ was hanging out after a gig (Bad Habit, weren't you there also?), we were having an alcohol-fueled conversation singing the praises of Wilson Pickett's cover versions, dissecting them part by part, going off in massive detail, except he was talking about Hey Joe and I was talking about Hey Jude.  We laughed our asses off when we realized we weren't even talking about the same song.

As with Home2's Otis songs, all great songs, all many of us are familiar with.  Here's one that would I think would be cool, by an unknown (nationally) artist, known here in Iowa for their earthy storytelling and rootsy sound.  Live, they've performed this with keyboard, and there's plenty of room for horns, 'specially in the coda:

Ah, yes!  For lots of reasons, I remember that night very well!  That was in Hamburg, the first night on our tour [smile]

Lately I've been thinking about Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.

But what I really, really want to hear is Georgia Women.  I believe it's actually R.L. Burnside, but every time I hear the Hill Country Revue version, I can totally hear each guy playing their part.  Love it!

If we're talking Otis - gotta to get these on the list:
"I Love You More Than Words Can Say"
"Ole Man Trouble"

And how about some Slim Harpo:
"Scratch my Back" (not much singin' to it but Trube can show off his chicken cluckin' bit)


Of course, can't skip out on hearing JJGM "howlin'" with the Wolf:
"Shake for Me"
"Little Red Rooster"

Anything Van Morrison or JJ Cale - everything JJGM style of course!
