Bah!

I was hoping to post lots of sewing adventures this weekend but yesterday morning I woke up with a stinking head cold, so instead I've spent yesterday and so far today in PJs, feeling slightly sorry for myself.

So instead I will post about a couple of true musical greats that passed away this week.

Sorry both of these aren't videos as such as both tracks were looong before video - or shorties as they were known then - were popular but they are great great music!

First up Johnny Otis, if you don't know about this guy, read up about him, what a guy, he worked with a lot of greats, was a real innovator in music and did some amazing things in his life. He's a real musical hero of mine and my husbands, he just touched so much music that we loved.




Next up and probably better know generally is Etta James. What a gal and what a voice.

I love this song, I actually sang it with my band many years ago, but could never recreate that wild Etta James feel!



I'll be back fighting fit soon, I would have carried on with sewing this weekend but I have so much work on at the moment, I need the energy for that!!

I hate it when my plans are interrupted unexpectedly. Still there is nothing to be done but rest and get better soon. Love Etta James, Everytime we say goodbye is one of my all time favourite songs.

Ah bless you - hope you soon feel back to full fitness! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! I'd just like to say, being able to sing and perform for the public - that's real genius (not five minutes with a photo and pretty buckle!)
