iainpj: man with headphones (howie with headphones)

Getting in just under the wire, local-time. And, just for the hell of it, going back to The Rules, revision 1 version. (Bought this year, as many as I feel like.)

This, because I love Jill Scott, and she releases music far too seldom. And I never know when she's touring or coming to town until after she's been.

This, because somehow -- and I'm not sure how -- I'd never bought anything by Sister Rosetta Tharpe before this year. This, despite buying an album of music dedicated to her. Which is weird. Not what I'd planned to link, but between when I set this out and today, Sister Rosetta appears to have acquired an Officially Sanctioned By UMG Youtube Channel, which means that they're playing whack-a-mole with everything else now, and "Woman" seems to have disappeared. So enjoy the first one while you can; the second one should be around a bit longer, since it's on the aforementioned channel. I did think you ought to actually see her in performance, while you can.

If you want to know more about her: the full episode of American Masters - Sister Rosetta Tharpe: The Godmother of Rock and Roll is currently streaming online at PBS.
